Applying an ointment on the skin

Skin Damaged by Bleaching

Restoring skin affected by skin bleaching products can be hard, so it's best to ask for medical help from a dermatologist.

Nonetheless, there are several things you can do to kick start the healing process:

  1. Discontinue using skin bleaching products straight away as they can cause harm to the skin even more.
  2. Apply a light, scentless, non-aggravating cream to moisturize the skin and help strengthen its defensive barrier.
  3. Put on sunscreen to prevent any extra harm due to UV rays.
  4. Attempt to use natural solutions like aloe vera or coconut oil to reduce pain and cure the skin.
  5. Keep away from exfoliating scrubs or acids as they can be too harsh on wounded skin.
  6. Take an over-the-counter antihistamine to curb itching and swelling.
  7. Limit sun exposure and heat as they can dry the skin even more.
  8. Visit a dermatologist for possible treatments such as topical or oral medication, and for advice.
Wait patiently as the skin can take a while to recuperate completely. 
It is possible that some scars may be permanent, so you should be prepared to accept that reality and find ways to cope with it.
