Skin lighteners that work?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone with olive skin has had any luck with skin lighteners for helping to fade red marks.

There are a lot of them out there, but I don't know what works, if anything?

Do you spot treat with them, or apply over the whole face?

I imagine it could be tricky with darker skin.

Any thoughts/advice would be great.

A while back there was a craze for papaya soap, but when using this it will lighten your whole face. There were several brands out there.......

There is also:

Apple cider vinegar

Malic Acid

Lactic Acid

Mandelic Acid



Do a search and you will come up with lots of ideas......they all work, but it does take several months and there is no 1 quick fix.
