Growing up my dad would always joke around with me and say, “Sweetie, it looks like you’ve swallowed a millions dollars and popped out in pennies!” When I was ten I thought it was funny, but now it seems more like a nightmare I can’t get rid of. Since I learned to stay out of harms way by using sunscreen, my freckles have lessened, but if you’re like me you may need some extra help in fading residual pigmentation.
Hydroquinone and different forms of AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) are chemical approaches to lightening and exfoliating the top layer of the skin. Since melanin gathers at the surface, stimulating the cell turn over will trigger new cells to form and the pigmented upper layer to slough off, exposing fresh and new skin underneath.
