Understanding Skin Whitening: the Desire for Lighter Skin

India’s obsession with a white skin tone has been since the dawn of time. People with dark skin tones keep applying numerous fairness creams, lotions, foundations, and compact powder to get a lighter skin tone and look fairer. However, using such products every day may damage your skin rather than make it lighter. Some of them may cause severe side effects and even skin cancer. 

Setting Expectations: Realistic Goals and Safe Practices

Your skin gets darker and develops blemishes and dark spots because of consistent sun exposure, hormonal imbalance, genetics, stress, and medical issues. Harmful UV rays cause sunspots, blotches, and freckles on your skin, which make it appear darker. People damage their skin by repeated application of fairness products to get fairer skin, which is impossible. None of the products can change your skin color and can only make you look fairer for a while. 

Different Types of Skin Whitening Treatments

Here are the different types of skin whitening treatments you can do in India:

1. Over the Counter Topical Treatments

Below are the different types of OTC topical treatments you can do to whiten your skin:


Retinol for skin whitening treatment

What is it?

Retinol, a type of Vitamin A, which is an ingredient in creams, serums, and lotions, can clear
acne and give you a brighter skin tone.

How Does it Work?

Retinol boosts the production of skin cells and helps in unclogging pores. As retinol exfoliates the skin and produces more collagen, it reduces the appearance of dark spots, wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars.

Time to See the Result

Retinol starts working on your cells immediately but takes many weeks for your skin to look
and feel better.

Kojic Acid

Kojic Acid For Skin Whitening

What is it?

Kojic acid is used in beauty products as a skin-whitening element. It can cure skin disorders,
such as age spots, acne scars, and sun damage.

How Does it Work?

Melanin, a natural pigment in your skin, adds color to your skin, hair, and eyes. Tyrosine, an amino acid, promotes melanin production. Kojic acid blocks tyrosine formation and combat melanin production, which lightens your skin. Apply kojic acid products and leave them on your skin so they get fully absorbed.  Such products reduce the appearance of dark spots, sun damage, and age spots, they give you younger-looking skin. Kojic acid can also reduce melasma, scar discoloration, and dark pigmentation, which gives you an even skin tone.

Time to See the Result

You will get results in 2 weeks if kojic acid is used topically. The results are faster or better if
you use it with glycolic acid.


Niacinamide treatment for skin whitening

What is it?

Niacinamide,  i.e. vitamin B3, is a key ingredient in many skin whitening products. It reduces the appearance of acne scars, and aging signs and brightens your skin.

How Does it Work?

You can apply niacinamide products on your skin every morning and evening. When applying niacinamide, you can mix it with other potent antioxidants, such as tocopherol, quercetin, and camellia sinensis (green tea) catechins. 

Niacinamide restores cellular vitality, and repairs DNA and sun UV rays’ immunosuppressive effects, which protect your skin against stresses that cause wrinkles and discoloration. As niacinamide is an excellent brightening component, it removes hyperpigmentation and gives you an even skin tone.

Niacinamide prevents pigment transfer in your skin, which removes brown spots.

Time to See the Result

You get a brighter skin tone after using niacinamide products for 3 months.

Ascorbic Acid

Ascorbic Acid for skin whitening

What is it?

Ascorbic acid, called “Vitamin C” in primary form, can whiten your skin as an ingredient of skin tightening products. The topical application of ascorbic acid products can replenish skin concentrations.

How Does it Work?

With everyday application, you will get brighter and more youthful skin. OTC creams containing Vitamin C have a slight pigment-lightening effect. Ascorbyl glucoside reduces the common types of hyperpigmentation, such as melasma and age spots, which occurs because it blocks the tyrosinase action, which forms melanin. 

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP), a Vitamin C stable derivative, controls tyrosinase and melanin formation. You can apply brightening products, containing vitamin C and retinol, on your skin for gradual improvements.

Time to See the Result

Once you start applying ascorbic acid-based products on your skin, you get a brighter skin
tone in 3 weeks. It can also reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in 2

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic Acid for skin Whitening

What is it?

Glycolic acid is an exfoliator that breaks links penetrating between your topmost skin layer
having dead and damaged cells and the immediate skin cell layer on the surface.

How Does it Work?

Glycolic acid causes a peeling action, which gives you a smoother and younger skin layer by
reacting to the stratum corneum. The application of glycolic acid-based products loosens the
bonds between dead skin cells in the stratum corneum. The acid penetrates deep inside
your skin to produce more collagen, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
and tightens your skin.

Time to See the Result

Glycolic acid won’t brighten your skin as it is not a skin-whitening element. You get clear skin
after approximately a month of applying glycolic acid-based products every day as they clear
and decongest your skin. After two months, you can see fewer pigmentation marks and dark
spots as glycolic acid removes dead and old skin cells, and boosts cell turnover.

Life ans diet for brighter skin

The brightness in your skin depends a lot on your lifestyle and dietary habits. You can add and retain a natural glow to your skin by eating the right nutritious foods, drinking enough water, and following a healthy lifestyle.

Nutrition for Skin Health

Nourishing your body internally and externally is crucial to getting brighter, glowing, and healthier skin. Eating the most nutritious foods every day can gradually reduce the appearance of acne scars, eczema, acacia, and dermatitis. Here are the nutrients you should add to your diet to get a brighter skin tone: 

Vitamin A

Vitamin A boosts collagen production in your skin. It also controls the production of Keratin,
which keeps your skin strong. Your body needs to have food containing Vitamin A to function properly. 

You can consume Vitamin A from a wide variety of foods, such as leafy greens, eggs, sweet potato, and pumpkin. Try to have them without boiling to have the maximum amount of Vitamin A, which rarely requires supplementation. 

Vitamin B Complex

Vitamin B Complex includes different types of Vitamin B, such as Vitamin B5 and Vitamin B6, which give you healthy skin. Vitamin B complex controls sebum production and cell turnover in your skin. 

It also effectively uses Essential Fatty Acids. Nuts, seeds, seafood, eggs, and meat contain Vitamin B. It’s tough to acquire Vitamin B only from diet and requires supplementation, unlike Vitamin A.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C promotes collagen production and healing wounds in your skin. It is a rich antioxidant that protects your skin against free radical damage, which leads to premature aging. 

You can have Vitamin C through a balanced diet. As Vitamin C is contained in fresh
vegetables and fruits, such as squash, cauliflower, broccoli, lemons, oranges, and berries, you rarely need to supplement them. 

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)

EFAs are vital sources of nutrients for your skin health. Your skin requires EFAs to build a strong barrier to stay away from multiple bacteria and microbes. Plus, EFAs add hydration to your skin and keep it healthy. People tend to have deficiencies in EFAs, which you can find in oily fish, avocados, and nuts. You should eat a high amount of these foods so your skin gets healthier and more radiant with EFA consumption.


Zinc acts as an effective mineral to give you healthy skin. It passes Vitamin A to your skin, heals wounds, and controls sebum production and enzymatic activities, which helps your skin shed old cells. 

Food gets the amount of zinc content from the soil where it’s grown. Take zinc supplements every day or as suggested by a physician if you have eczema, acne, or other inflammatory concerns in your skin.

Hydration and Skin Health:

Properly hydrated skin glows, otherwise, it gets dry and develops wrinkles, which are prone to infection and inflammation. Dehydration even worsens your skin concerns, increases the oil content in your skin, and causes breakouts. Foods with a high water content, such as vegetables and fruits, hydrate your skin.

Following a balanced diet with fresh fruits and vegetables can boost your overall skin health.   As your body contains almost 60% water, it is crucial for all bodily functions, such as digesting food and controlling temperature. 

Water transfers oxygen and nutrients to cells and flushes toxins out of your body. Besides drinking sufficient fluids and following a balanced diet, drink fruit juices, and herbal teas or eat foods such as tomatoes and cucumber, as they are high in water content. 

You can have beverages containing electrolytes when you are out in the sun to replace the lost electrolytes by sweating. 

Sleep and Stress Management: Their Impact on Skin Tone

When you don’t sleep enough and always feel stressed, it makes your skin look dull and causes wrinkles, breakouts, dark under-eye circles, and saggy cheeks. An erratic sleep cycle affects your skin health as it goes repairing when sleeping.

Chronic stress causes flakes, pigmentation, and inflammation on your skin. While, acute stress may cause hormonal changes, which cause breakouts, acne, and rashes on your skin. 

Stress management is crucial for peaceful sleep and healthy skin. Here are the things you can do to manage your stress and sleep well:


Meditating every day relieves your stress and controls your cravings for sudden binges.


Do yoga every day as it controls your stress. You can do deep breathing and slow-
weighted exercises to feel relaxed. 


Hypnosis is a condition of high relaxation, which relieves your stress and other types of
stressful concerns, like insomnia. 

Relaxing Activities

You should do at least one activity every day that you enjoy or love doing as it lifts your
mood. When you feel relaxed and happy, you sleep peacefully every night. 

Follow a Healthy Diet

Following a healthy diet, containing fruits, vegetables, and antioxidant-rich foods, is crucial to living a stress-free life. Avoid extremely sugary and junk food to live a healthy life. Quit smoking, and drinking since cigarettes, alcohol, and caffeine can trigger stress in your mind.

Enough Sleep

The “beauty sleep” of 8 to 9 hours every day is crucial to rejuvenating your skin. You should follow a proper skincare routine and get rid of stress by washing your face every night before sleeping.

Promoting Skin Health Over Color

Skin health over colour

So, you should focus on improving your skin health rather than changing its color. A dull skin attacks you physically and mentally, and gradually hurts your self-esteem. You can get radiant skin by following a healthy lifestyle and diet. 

A glowing skin reflects your internal health and skincare and makes you feel confident.
Healthy skin is sufficiently hydrated, not too oily/dry, and looks even and smooth with a few
breakouts. As people have different types of skin, you should follow a proper skincare and
dietary routine to get healthy skin. Here are some of the tips to promote your skin health:

  • Clean, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin.
  • Apply SPF on your skin before stepping outside to protect it against harmful sun
  • rays.
  • Eat the most nutritious foods containing vitamins A, B, C, and zinc.
