The dangers of black skin bleaching

You are beautiful, never let anyone make you believe otherwise. Discover the dangers of skin bleaching and why you should not succumb to temptation.

Skin whitening: the origin of a dangerous phenomenon

Voluntary depigmentation of the skin has been a widespread phenomenon for many years, particularly in African and Asian countries. It was in the United States that this practice began towards the end of the 1960s. African-American workers working in textiles and rubber discovered the power of hydroquinone.

Used to fade jeans, this chemical also has the ability to lighten skin. This is the beginning of the practice of voluntary depigmentation which, more than half a century later, has still not run out of steam.

Skin bleaching is mostly practiced in Africa and Asia, where the standard of beauty is a fair-skinned woman.

The only standard of beauty that should exist, and for which Beauté Herins fights, is your own beauty. You don't need to change who you are, you just need to take care of yourself to feel good about yourself. There are many beauty products to take care of your skin, without whitening it and, above all, without putting your health at risk.

What are the dangers of skin bleaching?

The dangers of voluntary skin depigmentation took a long time to be recognized. People who practice it tend to hide them. However, these dangers are very real:

● Skin diseases: infections, stretch marks, acne , atrophy, irregular pigmentation . The goal was to have a clear and even complexion. In most cases, these types of complications eventually appear and produce the opposite effect to the desired one.

● Serious medical consequences: diabetes, high blood pressure, renal and neurological complications. The list of long-term consequences of the practice of skin bleaching is very long. In recent years, doctors have made the link between this phenomenon and the appearance of certain cancers.

● A psychological impact: when the expected result is not achieved or when skin problems are added, many women admit to regretting their actions.
