Update: We will be doing the first skin clinic in Nigeria, and it’s free! courtesy of AIM and major cream retailers in the UK and Africa, I will be there live.
Your skin will be tested and cream recommendations will be given to you, you can buy original creams on the spot or buy later.
It is once in a lifetime opportunity as a skin test like this is expensive to do.
I promised them to met the target on time, please make this a reality, reserve your slot and share to help others reserve theirs. as a rule, if you can help as much as 15 or more reserve theirs, you’ll be given special treatment. I want this to hold and it can only hold in Nigeria if the expected number of people are met, otherwise the clinic may go to another African country. RESERVE Your SLOT We will select three Nigerian cities from a survey after you all have reserved your slot.

Check this collection of creams that are currently hot in the market right now these creams will make your skin fair and white, it doesn’t matter if you are dark like charcoal or if you are already fair. What matters is they will lighten your skin to the desired color. There are many reasons why you might want to bleach, there are also many benefits of bleaching. For some.
Reasons for Bleaching
You may have spots on your face or old body caused by freckles, age spots, liver spots, birthmarks, burns, sunburn scars, accident scars, and any other scars. Also condition like hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, or any one of many embarrassing skin conditions that may be making you feel self-conscious thus having low confidence.
About this skin bleaching creams
Most of these skin whitening treatments act by blocking melanin production.
Their main action is to inhibit the enzyme tyrosinase. Several treatments use a combination of gels or lotions along with sunscreen. Below are some of the components you will find in skin whitening products:
*. Hydroquinone – primarily, this substance is used for whitening the skin because of its antioxidant abilities. Cosmetic concentrations are available in 2%, which can be gotten over the counter while other concentrations are at 4%. Contrary to what people think Hydroquinone does not bleach the skin but helps lighten the skin.
*. Kojic Acid – The by-product of malting rice or the process of sake production. Studies have shown that Kojic acid is effective in inhibiting melanin production but this is also an unstable ingredient without the right cosmetic formulation. When exposed to sunlight, this can turn brown and therefore lose efficiency. Several cosmetic companies have used Kojic dipalmitate as a potent alternative.
*. Arbutin – this is an effective alternative to hydroquinone. Arbutin is gotten from mulberry, white mulberry, bearberry, and paper mulberry. The action of arbutin is to inhibit the production of melanin. Some forms of arbutin are also found in pears and this substance is considered safe over other skin whitening ingredients.
*. Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) – This ingredient can easily penetrate the skin because of its molecular size. The benefit of AHA is to generate cell regeneration and remove abnormal layers of the skin (exfoliation). The superficial layer of the skin is where most discolorations occur.
Before you start you need to get rid of the pimples first if you have one, this is necessary because, most of this bleaching creams only whitens your body and doesn’t cure pimples entirely, although some might try it won’t be as strong as a dedicated acne cream.
Talking about dedicated acne cream, the best in Nigeria and one of the best in the word is Funbact A Triple Action Cream This cream is very powerful, you only need to wash your face with warm water to open the pores then apply Funbact in the morning and night. You’ll see the magic after a few days.

It is one thing to spend lots of Nairas on bleaching creams and then get your desired skin tone, it is another thing to maintain that color, because leaving that cream will eventually bring you back to square one, continuous use it might over whiten you, or at worst damage your skin, here is where this Skin toner comes.

7. QEI Privilege Toning Body Milk
A bit expensive but works really well, this cream is best used during the last lighting stage if you are dark before. If you are fair already you can start with it. For the dark people, it’s recommended you start with QEI privilege or ( start with Almond Oil this would get you about 2 shades lighter. And the next step, after using the QEI with almond oil for about 3 months should be the QEI with Shea Butter, this is optional as those creams are pretty hard to get). This is actually one of my favorites for clients, it gets you lighter while giving you a lovely even, and bright complexion. QEI Oriental is best used in the last stage of lightning.
Either of those two privilege and oriental, do a good job of brightening the skin some more while at the same time maintaining it. There are many lightening products when used for a long duration, the skin starts to get damaged, this is not the case with QEI. This is why it has done so well after so many years in the market.

Please note. There are many fake products of this cream on the market, for example, Maxi cream used to be a very good bleaching cream, but where is it today? can’t be found because almost all of them are fake. I have seen some stores that sell the body wash of it. QEI does not manufacture it. Nor do they manufacture an extra-large size of the body lotion, so it is fake. That is why is good you buy online from a reputable supplier.
