What causes breakout of dark spots upon using Kojic Acid soap?

I have been using k brother alpha arbutin soap which was good for my skin but I wanted to lighten up like one shade so I changed to k brother baby face soap.it got me lighting but my face became rough and I started having breakout .now have changed my soap to kojic acid and I discovered my face is becoming more oily and more breakout with dark spots. Now I want to know if I should continue using the soap because have used it for five days now. Should I continue or stop. I prefer a natural things that is why am using it. Please what is your suggestion. Thanks and happy new year

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.



As per my opinion you should stop the use of the soap and nothing should be applied on the face and just wash the face with tap water .
