WHY GLUTATHIONE IS NOT GOING TO MAKE YOUR SKIN WHITE… 3 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU START USING GLUTATHIONE

WHY GLUTATHIONE IS NOT GOING TO MAKE YOUR SKIN WHITE… 3 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU START USING GLUTATHIONE

Glutathione was historically used for treating health conditions and improving athletic performance, in recent years it has been shown to be an effective skin lightener (lightener not whitener*)

This is  due to the presence of an amino acid called Cysteine, this specific amino acid has been proven to lighten the skins colour in sun exposed skin. 

If you are looking for a skin tone that is lighter than the tone you were born with (aka skin whitening), sorry - you are in the wrong place and just pure out of luck. 

So here’s the 3 things you need to know about how Glutathione works and how it  can lighten your skin:

  1. Glutathione lowers the production of melanin in your skin, so that your skin won’t get darker when it is exposed to external factors and hormonal changes.
  2. Glutathione also causes your body to produce lighter skin tones, rather than darker skin tones. 
  3. Glutathione is a natural skin brightener, it can only take you back to your natural shade (your skin tone when you were born), it CAN’T make you white.

Through the process of lowering your skin’s melanin production and producing lighter tones, your skin will start to restore and get back to its original tone before the sun blemishes and sunburn. 

The amount of skin brightening you will see is dependent on how often, how consistent and how much of the correct dose you take daily.

Generally, people with a lighter complexion see results between 3-6 months of use, while people with a darker complexion will see results between 6-12 months. 

Glutathione plays a vital role in skin health and gives your skin a radiant glow while removing marks, blemishes and pigmentation. Before you start using Glutathione, always disclose your skin goals so that you can get a realistic timeframe on when to expect to start seeing results and what types of results you can expect to see. 

So yes, Glutathione is a miracle natural ingredient but skin whitening is not its purpose, it is here to make your skin healthy by treating the cause of skin issues from the inside out.
