I can only suggest the best skin lightening cream that worked for me. I have dark spots (as well as acne scars), so I've tried a lot of products through the years. Right now, I'm happy with the results I get with the use of Whiterderm because it really does lighten. It was recommended by a friend, you can find it online. I'm just not sure it's a good idea to lighten your freckles.

@soobsyolpur: I think that depends on the ingredients of bleach that you intend to use and the frequency of usage. As long as the bleaching cream does not contain mercury, hydroquinone, alpha hydroxy acids and arsenic, I think, it is safe to use.

@bedacha: Why don't you try using home skin lightening remedies first? You can combine lemon juice and honey and apply them on your dark spots. Let the solution sit on the area for at least 5-10 minutes then rinse it well. If you really prefer to use a skin lightening cream, however, just like bhems20, the only product I can suggest is Whiterderm because it is what I'm using right now. You can find it online just drop by at their site.

I used Whiterderm too. I never heard about it until my roommate mentioned it. She gave me a bottle because she said she bought two and she didn't need the other bottle anymore because she had already evened out her skin tone. I thought I had nothing to lose by trying it out on my scars so I did. I've noticed that the scars really became lighter and less visible. Awesome.

I want to make sure I buy a decent lightening lotion. Can you suggest a few? I'm not going to put it all over..just on the ridge of the top of my nose where the sun spots are.

I'm hoping for results in 1-2 months.
The one's you get prescribed by a doctor

Wow why can't I figure out such a "slick" way to try to get free promotion for my product on the internet? Hey you GUYS! I use a product called PookieDerm! It works Great! All you have to do is call 1800-Kinky-toes and I'll send you a bottle. At only $1000 a bottle, it is a real BARGAIN... It has really reduced my scars and evened out my skin!

I use Obagi Clear and ordered it online through skincarerx (reputable website). It's 4% hydroquinone. I bought it directly from my dermatologist but found it is slightly cheaper online. You could even call dermatologists in town and ask if they carry Obagi products. They will probably sell it to you without a prescription.

p.s. This is a safe product. I discussed any possible risks of hydroquinone with my doctor and it is fine. Don't buy crap that you haven't heard of....especially from overseas.

As mentioned, a prescription strength retinoid would be the place to start. I have not found it to have much of an affect on spots, but it does really brighten your skin, tighten your pores and it is the ONLY product clinically proven to reduce wrinkles.

But it you want real results, shell out the $$ for photofacial/IPL laser treatment. I got unbelievable results with this procedure, most of my hyper-pigmentation (sun damage, freckles) just flaked right off after a single treatment.

i won't recommend hydroquinone for it is too harmful for the skin. there are skin lightening creams that do not contain hydroquinone but include natural ingredients. search for brands like this and check out the ingredients. one is NeuCell. another is Garnier, and many more. helpful ingredients are lanolin (natural moisturizer) and Diacetyl Boldine (skin lightening agent).
