Hi Mr Singh,
Thanks for writing to us.
Metasone plus is a triple combination cream containing steroid, tretinoin and hydroquinone. Tretinoin has a property of increasing skin's sensitivity to sun and therefore such creams should be applied in night and it is mandatory to use a sunscreen in morning. You too developed redness over face due to increased photo sensitivity. To improve your skin tone
Use a sunscreen daily specially when going outdoors( shadowz, photoban, sun cross)
Apply Kojic acid or Glycolic acid based cream to reduce tan
You may consult a dermatologist nearby to take few sessions of peels as these reduce tan effectively without causing any side effects.
Take vitamin c and antioxidant supplements

Hope that helps. Take care

Hi..thanks for your query
There is a possibility that you have developed photosensitivity after application of the cream.I do not suggest you use this any further.
To achieve a healthy and clear complexion , you can do the following:
-Please wear a sunscreen with broad spectrum like Cetaphil UVA UVB defense during the day time.It is important to use umbrella and reapply the sunscreen 4-6 hourly.
-Use Glycolic containing face washes once daily
-YOu can use serum having Vit C on a regular basis.
-You can take a few sittings of Glycolic Peels from a dermatologist to achieve a clarity of your skin
- Orally Vit. C supplements , 1000 mg daily for a few months

Hope this is helpful.Take care!
