Why you should stop those tube creams and lightening creams

Why you should stop those tube creams and lightening creams



The common practice among nigerian woman that i have noticed is unsupervised usage of tube creams.These tube creams which include funbact a,epiderm,clear and smooth,hyprogel and many others contains a substance called clobetasol which when consumed in high dosage is very harmful to the skin.This substance contains a high level of cortisteroids which are meant to treat hyperpigmentation resulting from melasma, ezcema and psoriasis and can only be used withyin two weeks

This substance clobestasol is already illegal in the EU.This products are being increasingly used by people in a number of countries in an attempt to lighten the skin. Older people as well use skin lightening to remove age or liver spots and other skin darkening conditions.So please don't be deceived by the "it will help u treat your pimples" statement, it is not true!!!!!!!!.

However few people are warned of the dangers of the toxic ingredients which, as well as containing steroids, includes hydroquinone. While hydroquinone is allowed in the US by the FDA, it is banned in Europe because of the potential to cause cancer.

The list of side effects of the steroid corticosteroid is long. The most serious is Cushing's disease, a malfunction of the adrenal glands leading to an overproduction of cortisol. Other side effects include:

* increased appetite and weight gain

* deposits of fat in chest, face, upper back, and stomach

* swelling

* slowed healing of wounds

* osteoporosis

* cataracts

* acne

* muscle weakness

* thinning of the skin

However, there are other skin lightening creams containing equally toxic chemicals. In 2003, Dr S. Allen Counter of Harvard Medical School reported that the high levels of mercury found in people, but particularly women, from Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, West Africa, and in Tanzania in East Africa related to the use of skin lightening creams.

He states that 96% of over 300 patients in the Southwestern United States that have higher than normal mercury levels were female and all had used skin lightening products; likewise 90% of women tested in clinics in Arizona who were Mexican-American had been using the same products

Women more often try to whiten their skin and as a consequence poison their bodies. These lightening creams such as 'Crema de Belleza-Manning', which is made in Mexico, contain mercurous chloride and is easily absorbed through the skin.

Toxic levels of mercury lead to mercury poisoning which causes neurological and kidney damage, and may also lead to psychiatric disorders. In addition, it can lead to severe birth defects.

Fairer, lighter skins is highly valued in some countries such as Asia and India. And even in countries where traditionally a tanned skin is seen as healthier, some women are using skin lightening products to achieve the flawless look of stars, such as Cate Blanchett.

Skin lightening products reduce the amount of melanin which makes the body more vulnerable to UV rays and thus to skin cancer and ageing. It is then necessary to protect your skin from the skin.

Given that chemical skin lightening has a range of serious side effects, the best advice would be to stay clear of such products and be happy to be in your skin.
