So, whenever you lighten up a bit, people begin to say you are beginning to bleach your skin whereas you just stayed away from stress, ate well, drank enough water, stayed in a place with clean air and took a deliberate care of your skin.

Toning is a continuous routine of using cleansing toners, washers, lotions, and even the famous serums like vitamin c serum to cleanse the skin. They shrink your pores, clear skin discoloration, brighten and even your original skin tone.

If you doubt it, buy any facial cleanser

Put some on a cotton ball and clean your face with it even after taking your bath, you will be surprised at the dirt that comes out from your skin. Now imagine these dirt’s accumulating over a long period of time, do you think your skin would shine? Be sincere.

It surely wouldn’t. The air in Nigeria especially Lagos is enough to make bacteria’s, dirt’s, dust, and sweats stick with you like a brother.

You need to take care of yourself.

Bleaching is using chemicals, strong creams, laser therapy to tarnish your melanin. Skin products like creams, soaps, that contains harsh chemicals especially hydroquinone will bleach your skin, And it has a lot of side effects. It should be stopped. Don’t bleach your skin please.

There are many great ways to make your skin healthy and shine.

And to those who misunderstand toning and bleaching, I hope we are clear.

There was a time I made an experiment on my skin by using just a cleanser morning and night everyday for a month.

The result;

No breakouts, skin was clear, though some discoloration, but it was great.

Buy a cleanser, a serum, and a good body cream, and your skin will thank you.


A skin toner refers to a lotion or wash designed to cleanse the skin and shrink the appearance of pores, usually used on the face.

And this gives the face a brighter appearance. Your skin glows, and Glow is not synonymous with White! You can glow as Dark or Fair.
