What is skin whitening?

Skin whitening is a skin-lightening procedure. The melanin ratio in your skin decreases in the process. Melanin is an element which is responsible for the tone of your skin. The skin appears lighter after the ratio is decreased.  That is why people with lighter skin tones have less melanin in their skin as compared to people with darker skin tones.
