I used hydroquin 4% with cutivate for brown spots for 2 months and now my whole face skin has darkened. How can I get my natural skin tone back?

You are continuously making new skin cells and old skin cells are sloughed off. The outer layer of skin is usually recycled about every two weeks, so your face should be back to its normal tone before long. ...Read more

I have vitiligo spots on the two corners of my lip.  No had a biopsy done to confirm. Applied cutivate ointment for 6 weeks but no changenext options?

If not, special makeups such as covermark and dermablend are quite effective in concealing it. ...Read more
