When attempting skin bleaching, different people have different views regarding their expectations. Some may only want to use the skin bleaching solutions to get rid of minor scars, and others may need the skin bleaching in a more radical way. One of these is to completely change the color of their whole body with the aim of making the new skin tone look more natural. This avoid situations where one’s face is very light, and the rest of their body is very dark because they did not bleach it.
The obvious question in such settings is whether skin bleaching can be used on all areas of the body with dark skin. Of course, there are parts of the body that may be hard to reach, and others with very sensitive skin. Making sure that all these are bleached so that one can end up with an even, light skin tone can sometimes be tricky.
The Problem with Sensitive Parts of The Body
When you are looking to lighten your entire body, you will definitely need to think about some of the sensitive parts of your body. These typically include parts of the body with thin skin or close to vital organs. These include the lips, the perineal region and around the genitals. Using skin lightening products which have very strong ingredients on these parts of the body will lead to problems such as scarring, contractures and pain. When dealing with these parts of the body, it would be wise to make use of skin lightening creams which contain ingredients suitable for sensitive skin types. You may need to pay attention to the ingredients of any bleaching products before you actually buy them in order to verify this.
Consider the Cause of The Dark Areas
When using a bleaching agent to bleach your entire body, not all the dark areas will have been caused by the same thing, which means that they may not react in the same way when you use the bleaching agent on them. For instance, very deep scars on your knees may need more time to be lightened compared to more superficially dark areas.
In some cases, extra treatment may need to be carried out before using the bleaching agent. For instance, you might need to use a body scrub to remove the dead skin cells on the surface of your skin on some dark areas so that the bleaching agent can easily penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin.
When bleaching all the dark areas of your body, the fact that they may not be caused by the same factor means that they may respond to the treatment at different rates. Dark areas resulting from deep scars may take longer to get lighter compared to others. You should expect this when you start using them.
In summary, you can use skin bleaching on all dark areas of the body. However, you have to pay special considerations to some parts of your body particularly areas with sensitive or very thin skin, in which case you will need to use a bleaching agent that is very gentle to avoid damage to the skin.
