melacare cream contains hydroquinone,that help in improving the complexion,by peeling the outer layer of skin and bleaching exposing sensitive layer underneath it
this cream may make your skin dry

do use a moisturiser
use a sunscreen lotion when you go into sun
use this cream only at night
not encouraged when you have pimples
apply mild soap
it is better to avoid such creams ,the benefits are temporary
try to go for natural remedy like neem or tulsi paste

try to rule out other reasons of melasma in men
like hormone imbalances,
family history
application of mustard oil on face
exposure to sun
certain medications etc

Do not use products such as soap, after shave or lotions that irritate your skin, because they may cause the melasma to worsen.
After the melasma clears up, continue wearing sunscreen to help prevent it from reoccurring.
