5 Side effects of Fairness Creams
If you follow the purchasing trend of the consumer world attentively you’ll at once discover that of all beauty products sold in the market, the number of fairness cremes sold per day is the highest, which no doubt implies that the number of customers who wish to buy such creams is also the highest. Yes, everybody wants to have a fair skin. It’s a sort of psychological obsession that if you have a fair skin you’ll be on the spotlights, get more importance and get noticed even in huge crowds. And the prejudiced society furthermore encourages such beliefs. The matrimonial market gives preference to fair looking girls. Racism and the stigma associated with dark skin as it were, has gone deep into our DNA! So, young girls and boys today are crazily investing in the fairness creams quite ignorant of the many undesirable side-effects of such creams.
The manufacturers of these creams make the most of the consumer’s psychological obsession by enticing them with fanciful advertisements where they get to see their favourite movie stars on television endorsing a particular fairness creme, using it and turning fair like anything and that’s just enough for them to give into the temptation!
Over the recent years, however, a lot of debate arose due to certain publications that were published in many newspapers, research journals, beauty magazines that tried to educate people on the hidden ‘darkness’ in the fairness cremes.
Let’s take a look at what it is that can make your favourite fairness cream harmful for you. Here are the major side-effects of fairness creams:
One major side-effect of fairness creams is that your skin with the prolonged usage of such creams becomes extremely photosensitive. Thus the moment you are out in the sun a hell of a lot of problems start for you such as itching of skin, getting rashes, your skin turning red, blistering of the skin and even getting painful sunburns. Using any facial masks or pack on such a skin may exacerbate the problem.
Secondly using fairness creme for a prolonged period may make your skin acne prone. Acne is one skin problem which everybody wants to avoid and it’s really pointless to welcome it into your life by using the wrong cosmetic!
Thirdly if you use fairness crèams for a long time, your skin will start to sag fast and you’ll come to lose your youthful look sooner than your actual age. The reason is the quick loss of the skin’s tightness, elasticity and a noticeable skin thinning.
In most cases, the fairness creams come with chemicals like Mercury, Hydroquinone and even steroids. If you expose your skin continually to these chemicals it may, in the long run, cause lethal skin damage giving rise to problems as serious as skin cancer even.
The chemicals in a fairness crèam also lead to pigmentation problems and aggravate it like anything. So if you think that you’ll mitigate your pigmentation skin issues by using fairness creams you are actually walking completely on the wrong track.
So these are the 5 major side-effects of fairness creams which you should definitely consider prior to buying your pack. After all, skin is a God-gifted asset and you must not take chances with your skin just out of sheer temptation.
