Looking to have brighter skin?

Be careful of using the traditional ingredient known as HYDROQUINONE.  It is a lightening ingredient to that is added to both expensive professional skin care as well as drug store beauty brands.

Hydroquinone is a compound used in a variety of skin products, to reduce the appearance of dark spots, freckles, acne scars and other problem spots on the body.  Hydroquinone has been the subject of much controversy over the years, and there have been many groups calling for the FDA to put a ban on the compound.  In many countries, hydroquinone is already ILLEGAL. Hydroquinone is still FDA-approved and legal in the United States, it does pose some serious health risks that medical sources acknowledge.  A variety of different medical studies have stated that hydroquinone is a possible carcinogen, meaning that it’s a compound that may have cancer-causing properties.  Regular use of hydroquinone can cause serious irritation of the skin, especially for people that already have sensitive skin or allergies.  In some cases, hydroquinone can cause extreme redness, itching or even a burning sensation when it is applied to the skin.
