Hydroquinone is the active ingredient of many skin lightening creams. It works by inhibiting melanin producing cells so that less pigment is produced. Another way it works is by breaking down the existing melanin. By attacking melanin and melanin production, the result is a lighter skin tone. There are various reasons why someone will choose to bleach their skin. One reason is that you may wish to have a lighter complexion because you believe it is more beautiful. Another reason is that you may have melisma, which is dark skin discoloration.
