Re: hydroquinone 2%

DONT USE THAT PRODUCT!!!! Never ever use hydroquinone on your face it will totally ruin it. Not only that I heard so many bad effects caused by using hydroquinone like irriversible skin darkening, sever acne and more. Just use Skin lightening products to fade scars with ingridients like KOJIC ACID, MULBERRY, BEARBERRY, ARBUTIN, LICORICE EXTRACT...all good for lightening dark scars...

Re: hydroquinone 2%

Hydroquinone is not for fading acne scars. It is meant to treat sun-damaged skin and age spots (brown pigmentation, not red). It has also been known to be dangerous for some internal organs if used for too long.

Try using an AHA product instead.
