Hi, thanks for posting your query

Skinlite has hydroquinone -a depigmenting agent, tretinoin and momatosone - a steroid

As momatosone is a moderate steroid it should not be used on face for long time because it can cause skin thinning, hypopigmentation, increase in facial hair and dependance

so increase facial hair growth can occur

As such the cream doesnot make your skin dark but it increases sensitivity to sunlight, so a sunscreen has to be used regularly during the day time

since there is considerable improvement you can start maintainance with Banatan cream or kojic cream

Hope this solves your query
