Skinlite cream is a strong and effective pigmentation reducer cream. Since it contains hydroquinone, steroid and tretinoin, it is important that you don't use it without a dermatologist's prescription. The cream works by restricting melanin production, limiting melanin transfer, and speeding skin cell turnover. The cream works quite well when used for a short time, but you may end up getting thin dry skin with acne, irritation, and visible thread veins if you keep using it for extended time. It sometimes also leads to rebound pigmentation. Therefore, you should avoid using it without an indication. Some doctors are of the view that you should use skinlite cream at night and apply a good sunscreen in the morning for better results - you can follow this routine for about three weeks. You should, however, switch to a milder melanin reducing cream after you notice some improvement in your color and skin tone - Clearz Plus and Kojivit are a couple of good options here. The prolonged use of these creams won't produce negative effects because they usually contain vitamin C and kojic acid.
