I want to ask, I want to whiten my face, but I use Vitaquin and Ldr baby face. After I used both of them, my face was red and swollen. How to get rid of the swelling?
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Vitaquin is a cream that contains 5% hydroquinone, while RDL baby face is a product that contains 4% hydroquinone and 0.02% tretinoin. Both hydroquinone and tretinoin have side effects causing skin irritation, redness, burning, itching, and dry and cracked skin. The use of both can also cause the skin to become more sensitive to the sun. The symptoms you are experiencing are most likely caused by the side effects of the 2 products you are using.
The use of 2 products containing high concentrations of hydroquinone as you are using is strongly discouraged. You should immediately stop using these two products and consult a dermatologist first.
For now, there are some things you can do to reduce swelling on your face:
Stop using these two products. Compress your face with a cold compress. Avoid using any product on your face for a while, including cosmetics. The use of certain facial care products when the face is experiencing irritation can cause further facial irritation. Also avoid using facial cleansers that contain alcohol. Avoid direct sunlight on your face, use a hat or umbrella when outdoors during the day
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
