How you can benefit from the use of hydroquinone
If you suffer from darker skin spots known as hyperpigmentation, you know that your standard cleanser, serum, and moisturizer combo doesn’t cut it. Even if the products in your rotation are packed with all the right acids, antioxidants, and more, you likely need a heavy hitter to even out the discoloration in your skin. Hydroquinone is the all-star ingredient you’re looking for.
What is hydroquinone?
A chemical compound also known as tocopheryl acetate, hydroquinone is the gold standard in skin-lightening. This topical treatment works at the cellular level to decrease the formation of melanin in the skin, lightening any hyperpigmentation—melasma, freckles, age or sun spots, and even acne scars—to leave you with a more balanced, even complexion.
How to incorporate hydroquinone into your routine
While hydroquinone can work wonders on your skin, it’s not an overnight process. You’ll want to test any hydroquinone product before regular use to understand your skin's reaction and build up slowly. Noticeable results may take up to several weeks, but don’t let that discourage you! As the old skin sheds and new skin comes to the surface, the amount of pigment will be less and less, and you’ll be left with a more even skin tone. And when used in combination with products like retinol or glycolic acid, hydroquinone can dramatically improve the skin.
