Which Product for my Skin Color?

There are many skin whitening products available on the market. In fact, more than $45 billion dollars are invested each and every year in this industry. With this abundance of products finding the one which is both accessible and highly efficient can be quite a challenge. Thus, it is highly important to have some idea about how to choose the whitening product suitable for your skin.

The first thing you will have to take into consideration is your skin color. Skin whitening products are formulated for certain skin colors. There are bleaching products specially made for people with dark skin, products designed for people with yellowish tint to their tone, or products that are made exclusively for people with medium to very dark colored skin.

The variations in skin tone is influenced by the levels of Melanin found in the skin. Melanin is produced by  melanocytes and  is triggered by the enzyme responsible for coloring the hair, the eyes and the skin. This enzyme is called tyrosinase.  The greater the production of melanin. the darker the skin color will be.
