Are you looking for a skin lightening product for acne prone skin? If you have acne scars to fade, the chances are you still have to deal with the acne. The last thing you want to do is to use a new skin lightening cream that will cause breakouts and give you further acne scars. Many skin lightening products are not made with acne sufferers in mind. If you have sensitive, acne prone skin, you will want to keep away from harsh chemicals and creams that will clog your skin and find non- comedogenic products that have gentle ingredients so that you don’t risk a breakout.

Washing Face - Clear Black Skin

When using a skin lightening cream, be sure to keep up with your regular skin care regime. Continue to use face wash/cleanser, toner and exfoliator regularly. If you don’t currently exfoliate, you should add this step to your regime. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells that may not be allowing your skin to breathe. It will also help any skin lightening cream you use to work more effectively as it won’t just be sitting on top of dead skin.  Many skin lightening lines come with soaps, cleansers and toners. Some will be good but some may not agree with your skin. Do not feel pressured to use all of the products in a particular line if one particular step does not agree with your skin. Stick with what does and find a substitute product for what doesn’t work for you.

When selecting a topical skin lightening product for acne-prone skin, check the ingredients for anything that may irritate your skin. Ingredients such as mineral oil, petroleum or silicones can clog the skin and cause breakouts. If you find that creams are not working for you, you could try skin lightening gels and they tend to be lighter.

If the cause of your breakouts is clogged pores, skin lightening pills may be the answer for you. Makari Oralight whitening pills contain naturally derived ingredients to help regulate melanin production from the inside out. The result of taking an internal product versus a topical product is that you get results all over the body.  You just have to remember to take the pills rather than ensuring that every inch of your body is covered with your chosen cream or gel.

Skin lightening soaps are another alternative if you wish to try something other than topical creams that may block your pores. Black licorice, glutathione, kojic acid and papaya soaps are all natural skin lightening soaps that can be used all over the body.
