)-- Skin care can be confusing for some, so it helps to know the skincare language. Skincare-News.com’s latest article, “Knowing the Lingo: Be Fluent in Skincare Terminology” makes readers more comfortable around some of the fancier terms.
Hydroquinone may be a term you see often but may not know much about:
Hydroquinone is a skincare ingredient that is used for lightening purposes. Until recently, this powerful substance was only available to dermatologists, however now you can buy it over the counter in restricted amounts. Be sure to ask your doctor if you plan on using Hydroquinone, as it is often too strong to be used on a regular basis long term.
Interestingly enough, knowing what Hydroquinone is also makes you aware of any potential hazards:
An Important Note: Hydroquinone was recently confirmed to be containing cancer-causing impurities. Since this is a contaminant above what the FDA recommends, you should not in any circumstance use Hydroquinone unless your doctor prescribes it for a specific purpose, which he most likely will not.
Being able to decipher skincare terminology is more than just appearing smart to your friends:
These are just a few of the ingredients found on the labels of many over the counter skincare treatments that it is important for you to know. If you are uninformed about what is mixed inside of that jar or bottle, you could be opening yourself up to some major skin irritation through an allergic reaction.
According to skin care expert Caroline James, there will always been terms that consumers should learn. “With all of the new formulas and concoctions that dermatologists and cosmeceutical companies come up with, it would be in anyone’s best interest to know what the ingredients on the label are and what that could mean for their skin.”
