Through this article, we hope to shed some light as to the effectiveness of a few of the popular skin whitening agents and give you an idea on how fast they can work on your skin.
We start with Papaya soaps because they are some of the most common and earliest available whitening agent that became available for mainstream use. The papaya whitening soap works by getting rid of dirt and dead skin cells to expose fresh new and lighter skin. Many have expressed their satisfaction with this product and say that it usually takes 5-7 weeks to see the results. You also need to use it every day.
Kojic skin whitening soaps are usually an enhancement of the basic papaya soap. They are still the orange papaya soap but with an added ingredient, Kojic acid, which also helps in whitening the skin. This basically doubles the whitening properties of the soap. However, you also need to use it regularly to maintain your skin tone and complexion. With this skin whitening soap, you can see some changes to your skin in 3-5 weeks of regular use.
Gluthathione skin whitening soaps are also quite effective when it comes to inhibiting the production of melanin which gives our skin the tanned or darken skin coloration. As an added effect, gluthathione also has antioxidant properties and vitamin supplements. It needs a few weeks, roughly the same amount as the Kojic acid soap to see the changes. Gluthathione is also available as pills or injections which may enhance its effects.
There is also black licorice skin whitening soap which makes use of glabridin found in black licorice, which can also lighten skin. It also has minimal side effects because it is a particularly mild and natural ingredient. It primarily works best with sensitive skin and still get results in just a few weeks.
It is recommended that when using skin whitening soaps, you supplement it with moisturizing lotion with sun block. This is to keep your skin hydrated and protected provide some protection from the sun.
