Dear Woman: Skin lightening creams and Blemish control products have the highest fakes out there. Beware!

I do not always want to believe that everyone using skin lightening products is doing that because they do not like their God-given complexion. There are people dealing with serious skin pigmentation problems, scars from burns and acne and have these annoying black spots or patches and it’s only natural to want to remove these spots. But I also know that there are people who just shock you by wanting to completely change their complexions. So they use these products to alter what they should have maintained. This I find utterly unnecessary. And also in trying to rid themselves of these skin problems, women also get carried away which is also unfortunate.

The best bet to treat spots is doing your best to stay away from the sun and use sun screen. Many ladies do not use sun screen and those who do, forget to sometimes. It doesn’t help that most sun screen products leave you with that white film on your skin but some sun screen products like Aloe sunscreen spray SPF 30 from Forever Living products doesn’t ‘white film’ you much and is very effective. So are most Neutrogena sun protection products.

Exfoliating your skin every other week with a mild skin exfoliating product also works. But exfoliating too much is bad for the skin and can aggravate skin problems. 

When choosing blemish control products or skin lightening/brightening products, it is very important to choose products that are made with natural materials. Some of these companies lie and stuff their products with steroids that do more harm than good. So do your research and before anything, get a dermatologist to do a check first. In fact, if you know a good dermatologist in Nigeria and you are reading this, you will save a lot of women the stress of going from one product to another to treat skin discolouration, blemishes and acne scars by dropping some information in the comment section. Thanks in advance. And also ladies, if you are really looking to treat blemishes, when you achieve a clearer skin tone without the dreaded spots, then it is time to stop.


Now, to the subject matter. Skin lightening is a huge business that is worth billions of dollars around the world and unscrupulous manufacturers are churning out fake products that find themselves on the shelves of beauty shops and even online shops. Some of these shop owners are often clueless about this. Even big brands are not left out. I heard Makari and QEI+ have their fakes being peddled around and sold to unsuspecting women. Imagine what using a fake skin lightening product can do to your skin. My advice, look for authorized dealers of the products and avoid steroid based products that damages your skin and leave you all 'washed out'.

Keep looking beautiful.

  1. Honey and lemon are natural dark spot removers may take upto 8weeks used daily on spots to see results. Aloe vera juice works wonders for clear blemish free skin

  2. I basically just use a cleanser/scrub (good products).
    I avoid products that have hydroquinone and alcohol to protect my skin which is very sensitive.
    I cleanse in the morning and scrub once a week, then i cream and apply powder.

  5. I use neutrogena''s facial bar for acne prone skin and spf 30, it works for me. The facial bar doesn't dry out my face and the moisturizer reduce my dark spots and brightens my skin.
