If you’ve used or researched skin lightening products, there’s a good chance you’ve encountered hydroquinone. This substance has long been used to treat hyperpigmentation problems, due to its ability to lighten skin pigment. Recently, however, it’s been making headlines for doing exactly the opposite.

Hyperpigmentation: Dark Spots On The Skin

Dark spots on the skin are an extremely common condition, and they’re widely recognized across age, gender, and ethnicity. Also known as hyperpigmentation, dark spots are formed in a variety of ways. While hyperpigmentation can be a mark of aging skin, and in fact make us appear older than we are, some forms of skin discolouration can appear as young as early childhood.

Anti-Wrinkle Creams

You’ve probably heard a lot about anti-wrinkle creams, and no doubt you’ve seen them line the shelves of every cosmetic store. Creams that boast they can “rewind the clock”, “fight aging” and “fill in wrinkles”. But do they actually work? And if so, how are they working?

The anti-aging branch of the cosmetic product market grosses millions of dollars a year. With the industry booming, more and more products are being created and marketed towards people trying to slow or prevent the natural aging process. However, the FDA has fairly lax standards when it comes to cosmetic products that boast anti-aging effects. Their concern lies in the safety of a product, not its effectiveness. Therefore there’s no guarantee that the cream labeled “anti-wrinkle” will actually reverse your fine lines and prevent new wrinkles from forming.
