Sunscreen: If the darker areas are on the face and neck, sun is the most likely cause. You need an excellent sunscreen with SPF of about 50. I suggest looking for zinc or titanium oxide in the ingredients for the best results. If you avoid the sun and wear sunscreen every single day, your skin should gradually even out. ...Read more

I have used tretin 0.05% for my mild acne. To improve my skin tone, kojic skin lightening cream is used. But I have experienced mild bumps on my face.

I have used tretin 0.05% for my mild acne. To improve my skin tone, kojic skin lightening cream is used. But I have experienced mild bumps on my face.

In my experience: A product like the kojic acid lightening cream would be more likely to be impacting or causing the facial bumps than the Retin-A/retinoid product. It does cause skin irritation in certain individuals. I would stop the lightening cream and see what happens. It might take 2-4 weeks to see any affect. If bumps persist, see your prescribing Dermatologist. Good wishes:) ...Read more
