Dangerous Whitening Creams

Health Officials Go Undercover To Find Mercury-Laced Skin Cream

(via allure)

Asian women are especially interested (that’s a mild term, let’s just say) in obtaining and maintaining pale skin.  Seeing the transformation of many Korean celebrities, I’ve often wondered what creams they use to become so pale.  Everyone is born with a natural skin tone, and it makes me nervous to think about how strong and harsh a cream must be to drastically change one’s skin shade.

If you are interested in this type of skincare, please be careful and research the ingredients to fully understand what they do.  Many ingredients in these products are very powerful and need to be used with caution.  Some, like mercury, are downright harmful and should be avoided at all costs.

Stay informed, stay empowered.
