1. Fairness Creams, Face wash, Soaps, Pills, Sprays, etc:

This is the biggest scam of all time. There is no way to permanently and safely change your skin color. We can reduce dark spots and reduce tan but natural skin color cannot be made lighter. Fairness creams usually contain bleaching agents which make the facial hair lighter thus giving the illusion of "fairer" skin. They also contain zinc oxide, which is a physical sunscreen. Zinc oxide gives a white cast, so the skin appears whiter instantly. So do not get lured by these false claims. Aim for healthy skin NOT WHITE SKIN!!

2. Anti Hair fall or Hair growth Shampoo:

The shampoo is in contact with your skin for creams short a time to cause any impact on hair growth. The only function of a shampoo is to clean the scalp. Hair fall is Multifactorial. We need to find the cause first to address it.

3. Pore Reducing Creams

Pores are normal!!

They are a part of the normal anatomy of the skin. They tend to become prominent as we age due to collagen breakdown. wn. Pore reducing creams contain dimethicone which forms a layer on the skin and makes the pores appear smaller. You can use any cream with dimethicone in it. Even sunscreens have dimethicone. So need to dish out a specific cream for reducing pores.
