Do you dream of a clearer and luminous skin, a unified and clear epidermis? There are natural and safe solutions to correct your complexion.
A citrus cocktail:
Combine the active ingredients of lemon, rich in citric acid, and orange, which contains ascorbic acid (anti-aging), in an exfoliating formula, effectively clarifying and illuminating the complexion .
To do this, take the zest of an organic and carefully washed lemon. Finely chop the zest and set aside. Mix the juice of the lemon with that of half an orange. Gently scrub the skin with the zest, avoiding the eye area. Clean with citrus juice and wait 30 minutes before rinsing with cool water. Do this two to three times a week (no more!) And stop the treatment in case of irritation.
In the vegetable garden, too, there are precious ingredients to lighten the skin . Starting with cucumber, which slows down the activity of melanin. The flesh of the tomato helps to unify the complexion thanks to its purifying action. White radish is known to be very effective in clarifying the skin.
As for spices and aromatics, we can count on the properties of liquorice, which accelerate the clarification. Mint balances and clarifies the complexion thanks to its cleansing active ingredients .
To benefit from the benefits of these ingredients, on the face as on the body, combine them in a juice (use a juicer or a blender). Apply it to all the areas to be treated then leave to act for several hours.
A milky alliance:
Milk has multiple cosmetic properties including that of restoring the elasticity of the skin and promoting its repair . It helps to eliminate lesions and other imperfections. Use it as a lotion, choosing a whole, organic milk.
To reinforce the moisturizing power of the treatment, add a few tablespoons of organic whole cream. This mixture is ideal for preserving the epidermis when you subject it to many lightening treatments that can attack it.
Sun protection required:
Clarifying your skin means preserving it from UV rays. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and use, all year round, either sunscreen or a day cream with a sufficiently high sun protection factor (SPF 30).
Dark skin: how to lighten your skin without risks?
While many women dream of a tanned complexion, others on the contrary want to whiten their skin. Motivated by complexes, this wish is often formulated by people with dark skin, marked by spots and imperfections and / or lacking in radiance. But lightening your skin remains a delicate operation, the effects of which are irreversible. Beware of miracle cures and other express whitening creams ...
To take no risks and lighten your skin safely , follow our guide!
Protect your skin on a daily basis to brighten it
For visibly brighter and clearer skin, the first instinct is to take care of it on a daily basis. A lack of hydration or overexposure to UV rays will inevitably make your complexion dull and lackluster.
Apply these good tips on a daily basis:
- Moisturize your skin morning and evening with treatments adapted to your skin type;
- Cleanse your skin morning and evening to get rid of its impurities;
- Exfoliate your skin with a gentle exfoliation, once or twice a week, to remove dead skin and blemishes;
- Protect your skin from the sun's rays by applying treatments adapted to the amount of sunshine (face cream containing an SPF or sun protection) and by avoiding prolonged exposure.
These actions will not change the color of your skin itself, but they will make it brighter. In addition, protecting your skin from UV rays will prevent the appearance of pigment spots, also called dark spots . The skin will therefore be clearer and appear clearer.
Whiten your skin: watch out for bad reflexes!
To whiten their skin more, some people do not hesitate to use radical methods and to extol the benefits of "miracle" remedies. Beware of these techniques that are too "beautiful" to be true.
Depigmenting your skin is unnatural. Your color is the result of specific and unique genetic criteria. There is no way to radically transform its criteria without risk to your health.
Aggressive or toxic products should never be applied to your skin in order to lighten it. Some products made from hydroquinone - a chemical used in the textile industry to wash clothes - can be very dangerous. They can cause serious and deep burns, promote the appearance of certain cancers and irreversibly weaken the skin. The same is true for cortisone , often used to whiten the skin quickly and drastically. Cortisone destroys the epidermis: the product then passes into the blood and creates a strong dependence. In addition to damaging the skin, it can therefore cause serious side effects such as depression.
Also beware of "natural" remedies that are propagated on the internet. While some are simply unnecessary, others can also be harmful to skin and health. This is the case with lemon , for example. This fruit actually has lightening properties, but it is also very aggressive with the epidermis. Dry skin to which lemon juice is applied may experience redness and even a burning sensation. Not to mention that lemon has a photosensitizing effect, that is, it increases the risk of sunburn and dark spots. Not really the ideal when you dream of a clear and unified complexion!
Lighten your skin: targeted treatments in pharmacies
In order to lighten your skin safely, you must first accept the fact that its color will not be able to change drastically. If your skin is black or mixed, you will not be able to achieve a porcelain complexion. On the other hand, you can hope to standardize it and make it clearer thanks to the care available in pharmacies.
Among the most famous ranges, we find:
Pigmentclar from La Roche-Posay
La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar skincare products protect the skin from pigment spots and dull complexion due to oxidative stress, itself triggered by pollution and UVA rays. The complexion is brighter and more even in just 4 weeks. This range brings together an anti-dark circles corrector , an anti-dark spot serum and a unifying corrective care .
White Objective by Bioderma
White Objective is a complete depigmenting program for sensitive skin designed and patented by the Bioderma brand. The treatments act on all the phases of the synthesis of melanin (at the origin of the color of the skin) to correct and biologically prevent effectively against pigmentation disorders.
This program includes a lightening night serum , a lightening cream and a targeted treatment with peeling action: the White Objective lightening brush .
Dépiwhite from ACM laboratory
The Depiwhite range from the ACM laboratory is also recognized for its effectiveness against pigmentary irregularities, such as pregnancy masks or brown spots.
The Dépiwhite intensive anti-dark spot cream has, for example, the particularity of containing 4 depigmenting active ingredients which make it possible to regulate the production of melanin by 3 synergistic actions:
- Slowing down of melanin production
- Removal of existing epidermal melanin
- Stimulation of the biodegradation of melanin.
It therefore acts on the origin of the spots to stop future reappearances while removing the spots already present. The complexion color is also unified.
The action of this cream can be supplemented by the application of the Depiwhite eye contour gel and the use of the Dépiwhite peelable mask, two to three times a week.
The MELA range is a Topicrem novelty. Unlike most other brands that only offer face and hand care, Topicrem has designed lightening products for the entire body.
The milk clearing ultra-hydrating MELA lightens, unifies and prevents the appearance of brown spots while providing hydration for 24 hours. It should be applied morning and / or evening to the body.
The serum and corrective creams Day and Night apply, meanwhile, on the entire face for a visibly brighter complexion, unified and hydrated.
Trio White by Noreva
Noreva's Trio White treatments act at the heart of the melanocyte for an overall anti-dark spot action. The range brings together a day cream , a night cream , an intensive care SPF50 and a correction pen .
Our favorite: the Trio White corrective pen which acts on the most marked brown spots. It speeds up the depigmentation process in record time. Equipped with an applicator tip, it allows targeted application to correct the problem, stain by stain.
Pigment spots: solutions in dermatological practice
When the brown spots are very important and that the care available in pharmacies is insufficient, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist.
Several interventions are possible to even out the complexion:
The dermatologist may suggest treatment with cryotherapy. The sessions consist of applying cold to the brown spots. As the melanocytes are very sensitive to it, the hyperpigmentation will gradually subside.
Research has also recently resulted in a medical device making this type of home care possible. This revolutionary treatment, named CryoBeauty , combines the effectiveness of cryotherapy and cyto-selectivity to overcome brown spots on the hands. It allows cold destruction of melanocytes without damaging other epidermal cells, and from home. The advantage is that it does not leave scars or a painful sensation after application.
Treatment with laser or intense pulsed light:
To lighten your skin when it is marked by spots, it is also possible to have recourse to laser treatment or intense pulsed light . This type of treatment destroys melanocytes by photothermolysis so that the spots fade.
It takes 2 to 3 sessions spaced 6 weeks apart to remove the majority of brown spots. Following the action of the laser, the skin will be weakened for several weeks. Scarring treatments are usually prescribed to help him recover.
The depigmenting peel:
The dermatologist may also perform a medium medical peel to lighten the skin. This treatment works up to the superficial part of the middle dermis so that the spots are reduced. It is practiced in 2 to 3 sessions 6-8 weeks apart. Be careful, this treatment sensitizes the skin, hence the importance of taking care of it before and after the treatment, and especially to protect it well from the sun.
What you must remember :
Lightening your skin is a common trend among black and mixed-skin women. However, you should know that skin color cannot change drastically without danger. Dermatological care or treatments can provide a solution to pigment spots, often at the origin of the complexes. The complexion will thus be unified and will appear clearer.

Discovering Dr Hauschka
So it was my pharmacist who advised me on a product that is very popular with the Chinese for their effectiveness and I admit that I was quite surprised by the results.
It is the extreme radiance of Biocyte in Capsule or cream. It is not miraculous but we can see a real difference.
I don't really know how to comment; but I want to know the side effects after using these products either: cream or capsule.
The products that we present in this article are serums, creams or targeted treatments to be applied to the skin, we are not talking about capsules.
These products have few side effects, they are tested under dermatological control and subjected to very strict tests. However, care must be taken to use sun protection at the same time, whether on the face or the body, to avoid the appearance of brown spots. You will find a wide range of sunscreens on our Pharma GDD site.
Regarding the solutions offered by dermatologists, we recommend that you consult directly for more information, which will be adapted to your situation and your needs.

What do you say about the injections and lightening or even whitening capsules that are marketed.
for or against?
Are there any who are advised?
what are the advantages and disadvantages of these practices
In France, injectable products intended for lightening and whitening of the skin have been banned since April 2016 by the National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM). This ban follows reports of adverse reactions considered to be of concern: nausea, abdominal discomfort, dizziness, palpitations. As for lightening or whitening capsules, there is to date very little information on this subject in the scientific literature. Also, we recommend that you consult your attending physician or dermatologist in order to obtain the advice of a health professional taking into account your state of health and your expectations. Note, however, that voluntary depigmentation (by applying products to the skin or taking capsules) is the subject of regular alerts from the health authorities. This process is in fact liable to aggravate or reveal skin diseases and other potentially serious pathologies.
