Not all skin types are the same. Aside from the color which is the most obvious subject of comparison, the structure also differs based on ethnicity, texture, and many other factors that can be explained more scientifically by research and studies. Filipino skin types are generally classified into four: oily, dry, normal or the combination of these types. Thus, each skin’s reaction to skincare products may also differ. What’s effective to someone else may not be as effective as it is to your skin. Filipino’s moreno skin may take a little more time before seeing the effect of whitening products compared to those with whiter skin.
Despite all these variables, here are general tips in choosing the best whitening soap in the Philippines:
1. Set your skin goal. Most consumers buy skin whitening soaps to effectively whiten skin as soon as possible. However, it is advisable to be more specific as to what you really want to achieve for your skin. Is it the dark spots or skinhyper pigmentation that you want to eliminate? Skin aging may be the worst enemy one can encounter in a lifetime. There’s no doubt, the demand is increasing once you reach the age of 40 or for some, mid 30s when the fine lines start to appear around the eyes. Dark spots and uneven skin tone are also common especially if the skin is overexposed to the strong UV rays. Others have scars that were brought by puberty when pimples and acne start to pop out.
Aside from the face, there are other parts of the body that naturally becomes darker as the skin ages; for example, knees, elbows, underarm, and other skin folds that most consumers want to whiten as well.
2. Identify your skin type. Product ingredients vary especially if they are formulated in other countries and meant for different skin types and structure. Before choosing which whitening soap is best for you, doing some research can do a big help in choosing the right one. For instance, pure and organic ingredients are well-suited for oily skin, while paraben and petrochemicals should be avoided. Oily skin is more prone to bacteria that clogs the pores and causes acne and other skin blemishes.
Some whitening products may contain ingredients that cause the skin to become dry or oily. Dry skin needs moisturizing and hydrating agents. Harsh chemical ingredients can irritate sensitive skin and may lead to a more serious skin problem.
3. Do some research about the product ingredients. Natural ingredients are the best cure that is safe to all skin types. Each ingredient has a role to help in resolving all your skin problems. Grapeseed oil, Aloe, Rosehip oil and Sunflower oil help keep the skin smooth and healthy. Other natural ingredients to look for are Kojic acid, Arbutin Vitamin C and the very powerful Glutathione.
Avoid whitening products with hydroquinine, steroids, and mercury. These are harmful chemicals that can cause irritation and permanent skin damage.
