Non-oily and fair skin is a virtue desired by every woman when it comes to beauty culture and why not? A glowing beauty can get eyes rolling and set everything on fire. Unfortunately, many women are plagued by the problem of oily skin and especially when it’s summer, dirt, pimples, blackheads and oil almost dripping off the face are major concerns. Together they can lead to black-spots and going by the recent boom of zombie movies, the skin clearly look nearly zombified! There is a solution though! You can go for fairness creams designed specifically for oily skins.
There is a whole bogey full of different brands offering such beauty and fairness creams with some even going to the extent of claiming instant fairness. Probably they do but be wise and unlike every frustrated lady out there, jumping onto the bandwagon with the very first issue of an advertisement is something you must consider not doing. Talk to your dermatologist and know your skin type. Find out what ingredients go well with your skin composition. This is just to make sure that fairness cream that you pick up for your oily skin is not leading to adverse skin reactions and neither is it making your skin a well-irrigated pimple land.
Did you know?
- Using too much of these fairness creams can lead to hyper pigmentation. This is also one of the causes of dark spots. Too much of anything is not good and fairness creams aren’t foolproof either.
- The aromatic compounds used in these fairness creams are potential skin irritants and can even lead to allergic reactions for sensitive and oily skins.
