Skin Whitening

Skin Whitening

Skin whitening is also called as skin lightening
Our skin color is determined by the amount of melanin in the skin. Melanin, a color providing substance, is a pigment produced by specialized cells called melanocytes. People with dark skin have more melanin. How much melanin your skin has is determined by genetics. Excessive exposure to the sun, hormonal imbalance, skin damage and exposure to certain chemicals can also affect melanin production. Changes in skin color usually resolve themselves. But over a period of time, certain discolorations, such as "age" spots or "liver" spots, become more or less permanent.
