Swiss Botany Whitening Cream and Ambi Skincare Fade Cream are two good skin lightening creams that people with African heritage can use. Both creams are available on Amazon.com. Consult a dermatologist before using a skin lightening product.
Manufactured in GMP-certified facilities, Swiss Botany Whitening Cream lightens the skin, helps with uneven skin tones, removes old acne scars and heals discolorations from the sun. The cream also feeds the skin with magnesium, vitamin C and various lactic acids. Swiss Botany promises a full refund if the cream doesn't work.
In addition to lightening the skin, the cream by Ambi removes freckles and age spots and fixes uneven pigmentation. The cream also contains sunscreen to help prevent sun discoloration.
