Do not self-treat: This is a very dangerous combination. Sadly, hydroquinone is popular in India by misguided people trying to lighten their natural skin color. You can end up disfiguring yourself. Tretinoin is helpful for acne, but the glucocorticoid mometasone can in the long run make your face severely inflamed, and atrophy your skin. To look good, accept who you are and hit the gym. Don't self-treat your skin.
