Hello Jelita, Thank you for the question.
Having white and bright skin is the dream of women. Various skin care products on the market offer a whitening effect on the skin. Some whitening and skin lightening creams contain vitamin C, vitamin E, arbutin, kojic acid, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), beta hydroxy acid (BHA), hydroquinone, mercury, steroids, and others. Even if these products are sold freely, if you have sensitive skin, you must be careful about having the right product for you. Some of the whitening products can have side effects such as peeling skin, itchy skin, burning skin, dry skin, or swollen skin. Thus, if your skin is sensitive skin, the use of whitening products can further aggravate the condition of your skin. To be sure, avoid using hydroquinone and mercury and make sure the product you use is registered with BPOM. If you want to use a product, you should apply the product on the back of the hand and leave it for 24 hours to assess whether the product will trigger certain complaints on your facial skin or not. However, it is better before using a whitening product you consult with a dermatologist first. Your doctor will examine your skin to determine your skin type and provide appropriate treatment to resolve your complaint. In addition to the use of creams, doctors can also recommend laser treatment or peeling.
