Good day guys, si Chun po ulit
Hiyangan din po kasi ang paggamit ng mga whitening products. Basta make sure you only use brands that are known. Like for one, I myself have also tried using soaps with Kojic acid. I had done a little research before I actually tried it and as per my query, maganda po ang Kojic acid kasi it comes from the fermentation of malted rice, a natural source. Nakakaputi talaga siya in just a short period of time.
Yun nga lang that time I was so hurried that I bought just the ones which brands are not well known kaya walang nangyaring effect I guess. So I tried switching brands so I went for KOJIE SAN DREAM WHITE.
Here's what happened: Natuwa ako kasi in just a matter of a week or two, though my skin peeled a little bit, what was revealed underneath was a really radiant skin. Pumuti ako. At isa pang kinatuwa ko, pasensya na po, share ko lang, my scrotum did whiten as well even without me actually rubbing the soap against it. I guessed the soap and the substance it had were really that effective that even those hidden "niches" and folds of my body lightened even with just the lather rushing down past the skin surfaces in these areas when I bathed.
But the drawback is that as time went by with me continually using it, I noticed my skin suffered from excessive dryness and thus, continuous desquamation (peeling). My moisturizing lotion did help a bit but no matter how copious the amount of moisturizers I apply, the same problem resurfaced. It also started to sting more than it did during the first few times I was using it so I decided to switch to other brands just to see if it was the brand I was having problems with. But then again, it was a viscious cycle so I decided to abandon the product completely even though I had very satisfactory results in terms of skin lightening.
I asked around and I found out from my friends who are also using it na ganun din pala problema nila sa Kojic Acid soaps, magda-dry talaga at magfi-flake ang skin mo. But even to this day, these friends of mine are still using the soap kasi effective din sa kanila sa pagpapaputi, ang sabi nila sakin, kanya-kanyang strategy lang daw yan kung paano mo mare-relieve yung skin mo from the dryness which I guess is the major adverse effect ng Kojic Acid soaps. Basta dapat matiyaga ka mag-apply ng moisturizers like creams and lotions lalo na if it gets less humid during the day. For moisturizing lotions, try Vaseline or Nivea.
Though malungkot ako kasi I had to stop using the product which brought about good results in terms of skin whitening, I just couldn't take the toll of having my skin excessively dried out and peeled every time so I went back to using the Papaya soaps na tingin ko dun ako hiyang.
Indeed, there's no harm in trying. It would actually help you out in discovering lots of things about yourself and the things around you. Don't be afraid to experiment. Just make sure you do it carefully kasi skin mo yan. Ako I am happy with my skin tone pero gusto ko pa din mag-lighten ang balat ko hehe kaya eto nagre-research at experiment pa din ako and through this I've learned what product or technique works or not for me, at least. Pagdating sa pagpapaputi, tiyagaan lang talaga at sacrifice minsan para malaman mo which is really the best for you.
2nd post ko pa lang po ito as a newbie at masaya ako to be part of the Symbianize community because I am able to share and at the same time learn. God bless guys
