Is Using Bleach For 13 Years Of Age Dangerous?
Assllamualaikum. I want to ask about my acne problem. My age is still young but I have been using whitening cream since I was in junior high school and I was in high school 1. I want to ask why my pimples appear and fester, since I struggled to replace the whitening cream. Whereas before I struggled to change it had no effect. But now how come my face is spotty.
White faces are often equated with attractive faces, although in reality this is not always the case. In principle, it's better if the skin is healthy and bright, whatever the color. The use of whitening creams often brings problems, especially if the composition of the cream is unclear, the dosage is inaccurate. Some bleach uses harmful substances such as mercury and hydroquinone, causing side effects. Hydroquinone can actually be safe to use, if only given in certain doses and not used for a long time.
The side effects of whitening products vary, for example:
Hyperpigmentation spots. Irritant reaction. Allergic reaction. Dry and flaky skin. Zits. Heavy metal poisoning. And many more effects that may arise. Pimples are likely to indicate a process of infection. Acne consists of many types and can be caused by various things. Some examples of causes of acne:
Improper use of skin care products. Blockage in the sebum-producing glands, due to dust and dirt. Bacterial or fungal infections. Eat certain types of food. The effect of certain drugs. Changes in hormonal balance. Psychic stress. We recommend that at your young age, avoid using facial bleach carelessly. It's a shame if your facial skin is then damaged. The healing process will be more time and costly. Consult a dermatologist about your problem. Your doctor will treat your zits first, before starting treating your facial skin so that it becomes brighter. When the acne has healed, your doctor may be able to recommend the use of products to brighten a safer face, such as vitamin C or alpha arbutin.
Avoid holding your face unless necessary, wash your hands with soap often, and cut your nails to keep them short. This is to prevent further infection in your acne. Do not squeeze pimples, do not use thick makeup, and do not apply any medicine without doctor's advice. If your acne problem does not improve within 4-6 weeks, consult a dermatologist immediately. The longer the acne problem occurs, the easier it is to get acne by acne scars.
Hopefully you are helped by this answer. Regards.
