Skinlite 3-way skin whitening cream

Skinlite cream is made by reputable company Liva Healthcare. It is a topical skin cream containing a combination of salts that are used together to eliminate the chronic skin disorder melasma. Melasma is characterized by symmetrical, blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation caused by overproduction of melanin by the pigment-producing cells melanocytes. It is thought to have a genetic predisposition and may be triggered by various factors including sun exposure, pregnancy, hormone treatments, some toiletries, and hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone). The production of melanin is controlled by the enzyme tyrosine in melanocytes.

Skinlite 3-way skin whitening cream composition

Hydroquinone 2% in Skinlite cream is a tyrosinase inhibitor that inhibits the formation of melanin by melanocytes and thereby lightens the skin.

Tretinoin 0.025% in Skinlite cream is keratolytic with anti-inflammatory properties that work by binding to specific retinoic acid receptors in the nucleus of skin cells to regulate growth and differentiation, by enhancing skin epithelial cell proliferation and accelerating epithelial differentiation. Tretinoin in Skinlite cream also blocks the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinization and cornification) and increases the shedding of old hardened skin cells, while at the same time promoting the growth of new skin cells. This process speeds up skin cell turnover which has the effect of lightening the skin.

Mometasone 0.1% in Skinlite cream is an anti-inflammatory component that works by blocking the production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and leukotrienes; and also narrows and constricts causes blood vessels that have become dilated (widened) and leaky allowing other inflammatory cells into the skin to escalate the inflammatory response. This action of Mometasone in Skinlite cream reduces the risk of developing contact dermatitis that may be caused by hydroquinone and tretinoin. This combination of strong cosmeceutical components for the treatment of melasma has been found to provide better improvement than treatment with a single component.

How Skinlite 3-way skin whitening cream works

  • Reducing the production of substances in the body that cause inflammation;

Skinlite 3-way skin whitening cream side effects

Some of these side-effects may be very rare or not found if the salt or molecule is in trace amounts. Not every side effect occurs in every person. Please consult your dermatologist if you observe any of these side effects even in a mild form: sensitivity to sunlight, skin reaction, itchy, inflamed skin, mild to moderate irritation, sore. Always consult your dermatologist/doctor prior to using Skinlite cream.

The skin can become irritated when you use Skinlite (hydroquinone 2%, tretinoin 0.025% and mometasone 0.1%) cream. Skin also may become itchy or have a burning sensation. Areas may become red and small blisters may form around hair follicles. Let your dermatologist know of any such side effects. All the negative side effects and irritation should diminish within a few weeks as your body gets used to the cream.

You may notice your skin is more sensitive to sunlight, to heat, and to cold. Do your best to maintain a normal body temperature when you can. Always wear sunscreen and long sleeves when you are out in the sun as a precaution.

If you notice swelling or severe rash you need to seek medical attention as you may have an allergic reaction to Skinlite cream. Only apply it to one area for the first few days to make sure you don’t have such an adverse reaction. If nothing develops after the first few days you can apply it to the areas approved by your dermatologist. Make sure your dermatologist is aware of all medications and herbal supplements you may use. Not all of them will interact well with this particular product. If you have skin problems such as eczema then you aren’t a good candidate for this product.

    The Tretinoin .025 percentage is the perfect strength for me as I have not had any annoying and unsightly excessive peeling or flaking thus far. This one is a keeper. Thank you for making this product available at such an affordable price! Please keep your prices competitive and you are sure to have repeat and word-of-mouth customers.

    Its a good cream as I have seen my brothers complexion changing a lot after use of this and wife also use this cream on spots of her face and it has given her a very good result. The important this is that you have to use it as per the direction given on it which says that you should not use it continuously for more than 4 weeks but the people tends to continue it after that also as it is giving them a good result. Now I have started using it and I am using it as directed and specified on it. I am getting a good result hope this result continues.

    This is my first time using this product. I have dark stains on my face. This is only my second day and I am already noticing the stains are getting lighter. I am hoping this is the remedy that I needed as I’ve already tried numerous over the counter topical creams that seemed to make it worse.Ordering was easy and the delivered undamaged.

    FYI: 41-year old, Hispanic female, olive-skin tone, oily skin, less than 1-year post partial hysterectomy, long history of moderate acne. Improvement from this product seen in less than one week’s time. My very resistant acne is responding well to this product and the stubborn dark spots are quickly fading away. FYI – sometimes I use a 1mm derma roller before applying and the mild steroid affect of this cream seems to help the inflammation from the derma rolling.

    This is a great product. It’s hard to find hydroquinone in a product anymore. It’s the only thing that truly gets rid of brown spots.

    This is not my first time using a combo lightening agent. I have ordered several items from okdermo company and have got them in 2 weeks generally, efficeint with everthing as it says on its website. I have a lot of sun damage, especially on my chest and neck from years of sunbathing while younger. I have seen a significant lighting of the hyperpigmented areas but it does take diligence and time. The discolorations don’t happen overnight, so neither will the lightning. But it does work
