Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing to us. Skinlite cream contains hydroquinone, tretinoin and mometasone. It is a potent pigmentation reducing cream and should not be used beyond to a month or two without doctor's advise and followup. If used for a prolonged period of time, may cause redness irritation, stinging, thin skin, visible thread veins, acne or rebound pigmentation. Right now to improve your skin tone, I would suggest that you use a good sunscreen in morning and skinlite in night for two to three weeks. Once your skin tone and color has improved, switch to a milder pigmentation reducing cream like kojivit or clearz plus. These creams contain kojic acid and vitamin c. These can be used twice daily and are safe in long run. Hope this helped. Should there be a doubt, please write back Take care

Thank you very much doctor. I have also one small clarificaton. How about Nur76 whitening cream. Is it effective and safe?

Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing back. I would not advise you to use this cream as its credibility and efficacy is not known. Frankly speaking, I had never heard of this cream. There are many such over the counter products which are extensively advertised and appear appealing to masses. But such products should not be used unless the composition is known or there are studies to prove claim regarding efficacy. One should not just rely on individual testimonials. So instead of NUR 76, you may use kojivit or clearz plus Take care
