The basics of whitening skin care

In order to have beautiful white skin, it is necessary to check the basics of skin whitening care and "transparency". By preventing melanin deposition and pursuing a clear skin, you can efficiently lead to a beautiful white skin. Here is a detailed introduction to the basics of whitening care and the importance of transparency.

How to get whiter skin? Why does my skin look darker?

To whiten your skin, you need to get rid of the causes that make your skin look black or brown. Let's take a closer look at the causes of skin darkening.


Sunburn caused by ultraviolet rays reduces the effectiveness of skin whitening treatments by turning the skin's surface brown or black. When exposed to UV rays, melanocytes produce melanin. Melanin is eliminated by skin turnover, but when the skin is exposed to strong ultraviolet rays, it cannot keep up with the production of melanin and it is deposited on the skin.

Stains and freckles

Spots and freckles are the result of melanin deposited on the skin due to the effects of UV rays and friction. Once melanin is deposited on the skin, it cannot be removed immediately. The melanin that has been deposited on the skin cannot be removed immediately, but is gradually eliminated through the process of turnover, and the skin returns to its original color. However, as we age, the turnover process slows down and it takes more time to improve the appearance of spots and freckles after the age of 40.

Dullness caused by dryness

When the skin is dry, the skin's barrier function is reduced. As a result, even small irritations that would not be a problem in healthy skin can cause melanin to be produced, resulting in melanin deposits on the skin and dullness. In addition, dry skin has an uneven texture that creates shadows and gives a dull appearance.

Causes of dry skin include the use of too strong cleansers, scrubbing, and dry air from the air conditioner.

Dullness due to anemia

Anemia prevents the skin from receiving sufficient nutrition and oxygen. As a result, the skin becomes dull and pale. Anemia can be caused by bleeding from menstruation or childbirth, lack of red blood cell material, or diseases that destroy red blood cells.

Dark skin

The color of the skin is determined by the type and amount of melanin pigment. If the amount of brown to black melanin pigment is high to begin with, the skin will be dark-skinned.

I want to get whiter, but... how much whiter can my skin get?

When it comes to whitening, it is easy to think that you can go as white as you want, but there is a limit to how white you can go. Let's take a closer look at how much whiter your skin can get.

Up to your natural skin color

No matter how much you continue to take care of your skin, it will not become whiter than your natural skin color. The basic principle of skin whitening care is to suppress the production of melanin and promote the removal of melanin deposited on the skin. It is not possible to work on the skin color that you were originally born with.

Colors on the inside of arms and stomach

The inside of the arms and belly receive very little UV light, which causes the skin to darken. Therefore, they can be used as a reference for the skin color that is the limit of whitening.

Approach from both sides, inside and outside! What are the basics of skin whitening care?

The basis of whitening care is to approach the skin from both inside and outside. Let's take a closer look at the basics of skin whitening care.

Don't let your skin get sunburned

Sunburn will keep your skin from whitening, so use sunscreen, parasols, hats, and other items to prevent sunburn. Since the amount of ultraviolet rays increases from spring to summer, you need to take more careful measures.

Use whitening cosmetics

Use cosmetics that contain whitening ingredients such as vitamin C derivatives and tranexamic acid. They can suppress melanin production and promote its reduction, so daily use can effectively lead to beautiful white skin.

Keep facial massaging

Facial massages are treatments you can do with a practitioner or on your own. The technique involves stimulating pressure points on the face, neck, and shoulders. ... Facial massage helps promote healthy skin while relaxing your facial muscles. It has a relaxing and rejuvenating effect, helping you look and feel better.

Use L&L Skin MIO2 and move upward from smile lines to cheeks and hold pressure at cheeks before moving knuckles across cheekbones to ears. Drain lymph under eyes by gently massaging under eyes towards ear and then move fingers around eye to eyebrows and apply pressure before circling back to under eyes and repeat.

Take nutritional supplements that are known to be effective for skin whitening.

Vitamin C, lycopene, and vitamin E are considered to be effective in whitening the skin. Vitamin C is a nutrient that promotes the reduction of melanin while reducing its production. It is found in strawberries, kiwis, red and yellow peppers.

Lycopene is a pigment found mainly in tomatoes and red peppers that has strong antioxidant properties. It reduces the formation of lipid peroxides, which damage the skin, and consequently reduces the production of melanin. Vitamin E also has the same antioxidant effect and can be used for skin whitening. Vitamin E can be found in vegetable oils, peanuts, and avocados.

Is it true that "transparency" makes you look whiter?

When your skin is clear, it looks beautiful and white. Let's take a closer look at the reasons why.

Skin with transparency reflects light and looks brighter.

When your skin is clear, it reflects light, making it appear whiter and brighter. It reflects not only sunlight, but also the light from indoor lights, making your skin look beautiful and white no matter where you are.

Skin's moisture content is necessary for transparency (moisturizing)

In order to achieve clear skin, the skin needs to maintain its moisture level. When the skin's moisture content is low, the skin's texture is disrupted and elasticity is lost, resulting in a lack of transparency. In addition, dry skin has a poor barrier function, so even the slightest stimulus can cause melanin to be produced, resulting in dullness.

Increasing the skin's moisture content improves dry, dull skin.

As the skin's moisture content increases, the barrier function improves, and dull skin can be eliminated through turnover. If the skin's moisture level is low, it will soon become dull again, even after the skin has turned over.

Smoothness of skin is required for transparency.

Clear skin is also smooth. Smooth skin is rich in moisture and has a good barrier function. The barrier function can be compromised by dry air from air conditioning, delayed turnover due to lack of sleep, and lack of nutrition. In order to keep your skin smooth, you need to take care of your lifestyle and moisturize your skin thoroughly.

Don't just focus on whiteness, but also on transparency.

To conclude, if you want to whiten your skin, it is important to continue taking care of your skin with not only whiteness but also transparency in mind. Let's approach it from both inside and outside of the body, such as the use of whitening cosmetics, UV protection, moisturizing care, and lifestyle improvement.


To become whitening, it is necessary to promote the reduction of melanin while suppressing its production. At the same time, thorough moisturizing care to improve transparency can efficiently lead to beautiful white skin. While using whitening creams, moisturizing cosmetics, and sunscreen creams, try to adjust your lifestyle to prepare your skin from both inside and outside.
