The cream you are applying contains steroid which should not be used on face. If applied for long duration, you may experience side effects like pigmentation
, dark skin
, excess hair growth
on face, thinning of skin, visible veins and stretch marks. I strongly recommend to stop using the cream on face. Its possible to achieve your basic color back by taking a skin lightening treatment regimen for 6-8 months, consisting of sunscreens, skin lightening creams, antioxidants and multivitamins and external treatments like peels. After this you will have to maintain the results by application of sunscreen and moisturisers daily. A combination of all these treatments with Q-switch laser
can help you achieve lightening of the pigment. Stick to the treatment for 8-10 months and take optimum sessions of the laser.
