How to stop melanin production?

is it possible to stop it? if yes, then how? which food or pills can help?

so for all who asked me why? I don't want to stop all the production, I know its dangerous. I want just to reduce it to make my hair and skin stay like now forever, because I also know skin and hair get darker with age. I want to prevent it.

What's Your Opinion?

  • If melanin stopped being produced...this means u're removing the layer that's protecting you from Ultraviolet light during the normal days & this will contribute to having skin cancer!Im a medical student ...DONT DO IT!

  • If your goal is to become extra pale and white, I highly suggest against it. Stopping melanin production can have some serious side effects as most of those melanin blockers f*** with your hormones and other naturally produced chemicals. I say don't do it.

  • WHY would you want to do that!?

  • why would want to f*** with your body like that?

  • lol no. you can't stop melanin production. you can use skin bleaching and such to get rid of the melanin in your skin. which is a horrible idea. but you can't stop with out using a drug to inhibit its production in the pineal gland. and I don't think there is such a drug

  • You don't have much to begin with.

  • Have you got an over production of meanin? If so it depends on why. Typically this is a biological issue. Your doctor will know best and suggest perhaps a dermatologist or a change in diet.
