Prescription skin bleaching creams may contain a range of ingredients including retinoic acid, steroids, hydroquinone and a range of additional skin lightening agents. Are you a candidate for one?

If you suffer from hyperpigmentation skin disorders such as [Link Removed] or chloasma, you need an effective skin lightening product. Whether you opt for those available without a prescription or prescription skin bleaching creams, keep in mind the following:

•Purchase from a reputable manufacturer or company to ensure that the product you buy contains safe and effective ingredients
•Where possible incorporate a range of active ingredients to maximize results
•Introduce ingredients gradually to ensure that your skin can tolerate them. Many skin lightening agents are effective, but may be harsh. This can be problematic if your skin is sensitive.
Non prescription skin lightening ingredients include:

As mentioned above, prescription skin bleaching creams contain more potent ingredients including higher concentrations of hydroquinone. Although they may deliver faster results, they also come with an increased risk of side effects. For this reason they should be used under the guidance of a physician.
