Brief Answer:
Combination of kojic acid and sunscreen

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
You can use a skin lightening cream like kojic acid in night and a sunscreen with spf 50 in morning.
Buy kojivit or kojiglow and photobloc as the sunscreen.
This combination works well.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

my wife used hydroquinone tretinoin and mometasone furoate cream for 1 month for melasma on her cheeks along with a sun screen lotion. It was prescribed by a dermatologist and there was very good results within 2 weeks. After 1 month's treatment as per doctors advice the above said hydroquinone cream as reduced to alternate days with addition of kojic acid dipalmitate (alternate days). But after 10 days, the dark spots have started to appear. Kindly let me know whats the reason for this reappearance. Please advise us a suitable remedy. Venkat
