There’s nothing wrong with living in the skin you love – even if you prefer a lighter skin. But most of the bleaching agents available are dangerous, and they are also illegal in Kenya.
Most of these whitening products from China contain hydroquinone or mercury, both of which can be deadly in the long run. Buyer beware. Lots of people, especially women are spending huge amounts of money to get a lighter skin, but at what cost?
In this article, we’ll look at you can achieve a lighter skin without applying dangerous chemicals to bleach your skin, and do it safely.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione (GSH) is powerful antioxidant produced in the cells. It helps fight free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that form in response to factors like your diet and the environment. If free radicals are not neutralized, they cause inflammation, which in turn cause a variety of health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, neurological issues, etc.
Glutathione And Skin Lightening
Glutathione reduces production of melanin, reducing skin pigmentation. This means it lightens the whole body from inside.
Lightening Only Works When Taken With Vitamin C
Vitamin C boosts glutathione levels by attacking free radicals first, thereby sparing glutathione. It also helps reprocess glutathione by converting oxidized glutathione back to its active form (13).
We recommend Liposomal vitamin C, which has
- Enhanced absorption
- Increased bioavailability
Skin lightening works only if it is taken with Vitamin C at least equal or twice its dosage .
How Much Glutathione To Take For Skin Whitening?
Standard dosage is 20-40 mg/kg of body weight for 3-6 months once or twice in a day and best if taken at night 2-3 hours after last meal for better absorption (15). For example, if you’re 60 kg, you should take 1200-2400 mg once or twice daily.
Our lightening combo delivers:
- 1750 mg of glutathione
- 2032 mg of liposomal vitamin C
This is more than enough for most people.
How Long Does Glutathione Take To Lighten The Skin?
It depends on your complexion:
- Fair to medium brown Complexion – 1-3 Months
- Dark Brown Complexion – 1-6 Months
- Very dark Complexion – 6-12 months
- Black Complexion – 12-24 months
How long you need to take it depends on your skin tone.
Is It Permanent?
Glutathione’s whitening effects are permanent if you will maintain it. Take 1 tablet a day as maintenance.
Avoid too much sunlight – it darkens the skin.
And if you stop taking it?
You won’t go back to your original skin color even if you stop taking these supplements.
