1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The product you mentioned has a generic content, one of which is hydroquinone, a product whose main use is as a treatment for hyperpigmentation or darkening certain parts of the skin. This condition usually appears due to acne scars, scars, hormones, or because of exposure to sunlight.


This product works by inhibiting a skin-producing chemical called melanin. With this melanin inhibited, the appearance of dark or black skin can fade. But the thing to remember is this product should not be used as a bleach or used in the long run without doctor's advice. Among the potential side effects that can arise with the use of this product are:

Irritation
Allergy
Feeling hot, burning on the skin
Tingling sensation
Dry skin


So if you have certain skin problems, it's a good idea to consult your dermatologist and genital doctor or beauty clinic before deciding to use certain products, especially if you plan to use them in the long run.


In addition, to further care for and maintain the goodness of your skin, drink plenty of water, eat fruits and vegetables especially those containing vitamins C and E such as oranges, mangoes, and pineapples, exercise regularly, wear sunscreen when exposed to the sun, avoid cigarette smoke, and enough rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
