I am very fair skinned and my skin is very clear except for some teeny "freckles" on my forehead and cheeks. My dermatologist recommended a bleaching cream which has 4% hydroquinone as an ingredient.
I find that it works very well, lightening the marks with continued use every night. I read that this ingredient is banned in Europe and some Asian countries as it can be dangerous when used for prolonged periods and it can also cause more sensitivity to sun.
I use a 50 sunblock every day and plan on using the hydroquinone cream temporarily to fade the freckled areas. Do you think that this is safe?
