Skin bleaching products?
I'm wondering what skin bleaching products work best and where they can be purchased. I assume they are safe.
Thanks for the help!

- I have not had any luck with bleaching my face using OTC products. My derm gave a me a script for EpQuin and that worked but not as well I was wanted it too. YOu can still see the mask and freckles that I got from taking BCP. Now it's been a while since I used any OTC bleach so they might have come out with new ones that may do a good job. I am very fair and the mask is dark so maybe that's why it didnt' have a good result.
/SIGH I am suppose to get Fraxel to have them removed but being that it's close to summer and I do landscaping I think I might wait until Fall or Winter to have that done.

- I've tried a skin lightening product by Murad - Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Gel. It has 2% hydroquinone and it was fairly effective lightening the sunspots on the backs of my hands. However, you shouldn't use this product for longer than 3 months because the effects of hydroquinone are unknown. I've read warnings on some skincare and organic food/cosmetic sites that this can contribute to skin cancer, so I stopped using it.
A less harmful skin whitening solution is made from koji berry, but I haven't personally tried this.#2; Tue, 18 Dec 2007 17:48:00 GMT
- Well, needless to say, spots are far better than skin cancer, so please do limit any suggestions to the [potentially] non-hazardous. :dizzy:
