Taking the time to read about skin discoloration and how to bleach.

Light skin products provide a desirable look. In many areas in the world, the lighter your skin is, the more beautiful you are considered. You can reach this objective without surgery. A skin bleaching cream (or a bleaching gel) helps everyone who wants a smooth even skin tone. Skin problems like spots, discoloration and hyperpygmentation are an important issue for dermatologists. But bleaching and whitening products are complexe and it may be hard for people to choose what they really need for durable and safe results. You have to consider first if you already had an acne problem, bug bites, skin trauma, sun damages or hormonal problems (melasma). Ask a dermatologist.

The basics : According to dermatologists, bleaches should be applied only on dark spots. The, you have to select areas that are well defined to bleach. If you don't exactly know what to choose, maybe you should begin a light skin brightener. For different reasons, a skin brightener is safer to use in widespread areas. They are typically based upon botanical ingredients.

You must avoid appyling the active bleaching agent to normal surrounding skin because a continued use of your skin bleaching cream may slow lighten your normal skin tone. More, bleaching period must be stopped isntantly when you achieve the desired effect. If you don't stop the treatment, you might get areas of your skin lighter than others.

During the treatment, sun protection is a crucial point because it darkens your skin. A sunscreen with at least a SPF of 15 is enough to proteck your bleaching skin. But clothing and hat protection is always the best way to protect your skin from UVA and UVB dangerous rays. Remember : no sunscreen = no improvement. Keep the sun away during the bleaching process.

How does it work? Bleaching helps maintain skin health by removing suntan. It is painless and starts producing instant results. You can use it safely at home. Here are the particular recommendation for use : test for sensitivity before applying; never apply after a hot bath; use the mixture within 30 minutes of preparation (otherwise the effectiveness will wear off); do not apply on cuts or abrasions, moles, burns or make-up (to prevent burning sensations or to developp an irritation); wait 24 hours before applying an astringent; do not use metal dishes of spoons for preparing the mixture (as they can cause chemical reactions in the ingredients; use for 15 minutes, if fair complexioned and 25-30 minutes, if dark complexioned; use once in 15 days as the lightening effect may not last too long (as the skin is a living tissue, melanin is produced continuously); keep containers tightly after use; always store the kit in a cool, dry and dark place away from excessive heat (since this could reduce its effectiveness).

Common myths about skin bleaching

1.Lightens hair colour permanently: Cream bleach lightens colour of the hair above the skin's surface and does not affect the roots.The new hair will remain its natural colour.
2.Bleaching Makes Hair Darker: Bleaching, or the chemicals in it, do not cause the hair to grow darker.The change in hair colour may take place due to factors such as medication; environmental factors such as the sun; and biological factors such as ageing, pregnancy, menopause, etc.Bleaching does not thicken hair growth.
3.Increases Hair Growth: In some cases, hydrogen stimulate the hair follicle, thereby causing hair to grow faster temporarily.But this is only a one-time stimulation and does not promote sustained growth.
4.Causes Skin Irritation: Since bleaching is an exothermic (gives out heat)reaction, it may cause the skin to appear flushed.However, this is temporary and fades away in an hour or two.Irritation may be caused due to:
a.Ultra sensitive skin.
b.Allergic reactions.
c.Interaction with other cosmetic products.
d.A pre-existing skin condition.
e.Improper mixing of creams(cream bleach).
Application of ice or aloevera based creams will make irritation disappear fast.
5.Is Harmful To The Skin: Repeated use of bleach is safe and good for the skin, as it cleans and makes the skin breathe easier, besides camouflaging hair to match the skin colour.

Stop Skin Abuse

PIH is the result of irritation or inflammation of the skin. Whatever the cream, gel or lotion is, if it is irritating and you are prone to skin discoloration, get rid of it unless it’s a prescription agent you just cannot live without for your particular skin disease. Ask for patch testing if you are continually getting irritated to every cream known to man (or woman!) and have a history of overly sensitive skin. You may learn you have a secret allergy to an ingredient that is very easy to avoid.

Fix It

Do you have a skin problem such as acne that leaves you with skin discoloration? Stop the vicious cycle and treat the acne, not just the skin discoloration. Many times, I have patients see me with obvious skin diseases that cause the color changes and they seem tuned in only to the skin color changes. I usually try to resolve the rash before I start treating the skin discoloration. Remember, the bleaching is going to take many months or more. If the rash keeps on going, so too will the bleaching process.

So What Regimen Is Right For Me?

Apply your AHA, Vitamin C, Renova, Kinerase or Azelex to the general areas of the face and then apply your bleach only to the dark spots. Apply sunscreen. Try to wait 20 minutes between the application of your helper creams and your active bleach in order to minimize potential irritation if possible. If you experience irritation from layering, apply your products separately during the day, even if you end up with an every other day use of some of the products. Irritation may lead to more skin discoloration. Better to draw out the bleaching process a little.

Bleaching is NOT a fast process. The darker the area is compared to your natural skin tone, the longer it can take. Estimate approximately 6-12 months, depending upon the differences in tone.

A Word On Obaji

Obagi is a process used to help treat skin discoloration that basically incorporates office treatments consisting of a series of TCA (Trichloracetic Acid) peels (they call it a "blue peel") and home therapy with generic versions of 4% Hydroquinone and tretinoin, (the active ingredients in products such as Melanex and Retin A, respectively). TCA can be irritating and cause some further skin discoloration, so do have a serious discussion with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon particularly if you have a darker baseline skin tone before undergoing these peels. As you can see, the home therapy consists of some of the cornerstones of prescription therapy. These 2 agents, despite being generic, are only available by prescription.

Common Questions:

What do I do for underarm discoloration?

Underarm discoloration can come from a wide variety of causes including chronic friction and irritation to your deodorant. Consider switching to a hypoallergenic deodorant such as DERMAdoctor Total NonScents Ultra-Gentle Brightening Antiperspirant. Due to the thinner skin in this area as well as the potential for irritation here, you may want to ask your doctor about prescription cream based bleaches. While Glyquin contains higher levels of glycolic acid, it is sodium metabisulfite free which is a known skin irritant. Sometimes patients with underarm irritation may be patch tested to see if they have sensitivities to other product ingredients.

I have melasma, must I go off the pill?

The short answer is NO. While it is true that an external source of estrogen (such as in BCPs) may contribute to the formation of melasma, (aka mask of pregnancy), it doesn’t mean you cannot effectively bleach your skin discoloration while staying on the pill. However, if your BCP is contributing to your melasma, you want to stay on some form of maintenance therapy once you have achieved your desired skin bleaching results. This is going to include daily sunscreen and perhaps the use of one or more of the following: a topical Vitamin A product such as Retin A/Renova/Afirm, etc., glycolic acid or vitamin C. Many melasma sufferers may find that if they do not continue some form of active bleaching, their melasma will return (BCP use or not). I find that the use of a skin brightener such as Peter Thomas Roth Potent Botanical Skin Brightening Gel Complex is very helpful to start once your skin bleaching process has been completed. Also, if you do see your melasma returning, get back onto your active bleach sooner than later. There is no need to be down another year in treatment if you can possibly avoid it!

How do I bleach red/purple acne “scars”?

Red or purple spots do not make for a diagnosis of a scar which means you stand a good chance of Mother Nature naturally fading them out over time. Nor do red/purple spots contain melanin pigment so they are not going to respond to a “true” bleaching agent, i.e. one that contains hydroquinone, etc. Go for something like Mederma, wear your sunscreen (oil-free if acne prone) and make sure your acne or other skin rash is under control. See a dermatologist if you have to in order to get the condition under control or else you’ll be playing “catch-up” forever with your skin discoloration.

Will the use of a self tanner make the skin discoloration less noticeable?

Unfortunately, self tanners stain the skin and make whatever they are applied to darker whether normal skin tone, abnormal discoloration, moles, etc. If you are artistic, you may find a way to apply a self tanner around the abnormal color, helping lessen the appearance of the discoloration. Better yet, consider applying a concealer such as T. LeClerc Professional Concealer - Clair 02 (or in the shade that matches your skin) to the dark spots before applying your foundation. It will help make them far less noticeable.
