Is Hoof Maker cream for horses really good for your nails? Episode 111
This study is often quoted as saying it worked better than or as well as 4% hydroquinone but 4 weeks is not long enough to judge that and again, and this was not about hexylresorcinol itself .” Finally, the website Truth in Aging says… ”HR’s ability to target pathways in the skin that lead to hyperpigmentation has propelled it into the skin lightening ingredient category. There is also thought that Hexylresorcinol has more benefits as well, including an ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase protection against UVB and UVA rays, and improve the skin’s barrier against pollution an...

Don’t be duped by deceptive drugstore doubles
You can save a ton of money buying the “house brands” instead of the more expensive brand name beauty products right? The answer is, it depends.
