Total body skin lightening options include skin-bleaching products such as cleansers and lotions as well as laser treatment options. Other total body skin lightening options include microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Skin-bleaching soaps such as Clinicians Complex Skin Bleaching Cleanser are effective for total body skin lightening. The cleanser contains vitamin C and kojic acid to help even out skin tone and lighten discolorations on the body.
Skin-bleaching lotions also lighten the body and should contain hydroquinone, a major skin-bleaching ingredient found in most lightening formulas. SkinBright is a lotion that contains alpha arbutin, aloe vera and ascorbic acid to lighten the skin, increase brightness and prevent aging. Another skin-bleaching lotion is Olay Pro-X Spot Fading Treatment.
Total body skin lightening routines must include sunscreen. The sun causes brown spots and reverses the effects of skin-bleaching, so avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
