Hi dear,

You need to maintain sun protection .

Use good quality sunscreen while daytime .

Use kojic acid containing cream at night time.

Please stop using halotop cream as it is potent steroid and makes skin thin ,fragile and weak.

You can also visit dermatologist who can suggest you other ways of skin lightning.

Hope this helps

Hi sujii,
halotop contain halobetasole a potent steroid which is contraindicated on face is any dermatological condition bc it can cause a lot of problems. lighting which is a temporary, is a side effect of this cream.
You need a good sunscreen which contain less oil (suncote gel) in morning and a depigmenting containing cream at night (skin-lite, melaglow cream)
hope this will help u
