Suggest a skin cream for uneven skin tone and hyper-pigmentation

Posted on Fri, 4 Oct 2019 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: Am a budding male actor in XXXXXXX XXXXXXX I could see uneven skin tone (hyperrpigmentation) . Is there any promising skin lightening cream is available . I could see hydroquinone (in XXXXXXX skinlite product) can lighten the skin but due to its side effects I dont want to use it. I just happened to see the below from the internet.

Hexylresorcinol concentration at 0.5 per cent has proven to be just as effective as two per cent concentration of hydroquinone

Is it safer to use hexylresorcinol ? Which product/brand is good & safe ?

Brief Answer:
Skin lightening and brightening cream

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist).
I have noted your concern.

If you are looking for a product which lightens/brightens skin tone as well as is skin rejuvenating, I would suggest you to opt for a Glycolic acid based product e.g CutiYt lotion. It is a cosmetic product and can be used once daily at night. In addition I suggest you to use a broad spectrum sunscreen during the day.

Brief Answer:
Fairness cream

Detailed Answer:
Neutrogena fine fairness gel contains hexylresorcinol. It too has a lot of other ingredients. It is an OTC product. There is no cream that would contain just hexylresorcinol. You will always find it along with other chemicals.
