hi welcome to Asian beauty secrets
00:02
as per request a lot of you guys ask me to
00:04
do a video on uneven skin tone
00:06
and how to whiten and lighten the skin color as
00:09
we all know uneven skin tones
00:11
probably one of the most severe and the most
00:14
important aspect of skin health and
00:16
beauty a lot of the most common skin
00:18
discolorations is from acne scarring and
00:21
from sunspots so quite frankly the pigmentation
00:24
in skin is commonly caused by melanin there is a difference between
00:28
brightening and even out the skin tone
00:30
as opposed to whitening, whitening is to
00:32
actually bleach the color of your skin
00:34
and strip away the pigmentation that is
00:36
actually very very dangerous and
00:38
can cause a lot of effects that you
00:39
don’t want whereas brightening
00:42
which means actually lighting your skin by
00:44
evening at the skin tone so it
00:46
actually breaks down any discoloration and that’s
00:49
more of the safer and
00:50
probably more efficient way to go there are what you
00:53
need to know about some of the foods
00:55
that you can eat to actually help
00:57
lighten your skin naturally the first thing
00:59
is vitamin C and I have mentioned
01:00
about that in my super fruit video
01:03
if you haven’t watched I click here
01:03
vitamin C has gone to control certain levels
01:05
into red blood cells to help to balance
01:09
between the light and the dark pigments and it’s found that to be taking vitamin
01:14
C over time can gradually lighten your skin milk is known to reduce the melanin
01:18
formation because it has a certain thing called lactic acid that actually helps
01:22
to inhibit the production of melanin that’s why you’ve heard of milk bath
01:26
milk facials anything with milk is helped to whiten blueberry mulberry
01:30
cranberry red berry or contain this thing called a Burton which actually
01:33
helps to lighten the skin in general and prevent melanin production kojic acid is
01:39
actually a byproduct of the fermentation of rice which is known to be making
01:43
things like sake or rice wine and that actually helps just break down the
01:47
melanin and allow your body to better absorb it
01:50
that’s why you have brands such as SK 2 that use the facial treatment essence
01:54
which they use is a form of East that is actually used in the process of making
01:58
sucker as I had mentioned before sun’s rays is one of the key causes for your
02:02
skin to discolor because it actually damages your skin cells so UVA is the
02:07
most strongest and harshest way because it penetrates deeper down into your skin
02:12
cells to damage and causing your body to produce more melanin UVB is for burning
02:18
and that’s when you fill your skin burning and your your body’s overheating
02:23
it actually dehydrates just skin and causes wrinkles UV cc4 cancer although
02:28
it is a shortest one studies has found UVC to be very very extremely dangerous
02:33
when being disposed at the same time as UVA and UVB which causes the cancer a
02:38
lot of the times the Earth’s ozone layer would take most of the way however for
02:43
those in Australia where we have a huge hole in the ozone layer you guys will be
02:47
needing a sunblock that is triple guard which means a protection from UVA UVB
02:51
and UVC so SPF means sun protection factor SPF usually flashes back on
02:57
camera because it contains ingredients such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide
03:02
and these ingredients are very important in helping to protect you from the sun’s
03:06
rays so in conclusion is to combine the diet
03:09
with products that works for your skin and protection you will find that over
03:14
time all these will help to gradually brighten and lighten your skin to a
03:18
warning out there any product that promises you to lighten or whiten your
03:22
skin immediately is a no-no because when they do certain things like that they
03:27
use chemicals that bleach your skin and allows it to be more sensitive so when
03:31
you do go out in the Sun you become darker and that shade becomes more
03:34
permanent which means it’s harder to get rid of than what you had already started
03:38
