Am an african girl. Would like to have an even skin tone. Are skin lightening creams safe which do not hav mercury or hydroquinine. An suggestions?

Fade creams. Everybody has a different definition for "even toned skin". If you are referring to the pictures of people you see in glamour magazines, then you will need a computer program called photoshop. In the real world, we all have varied tones. Mercury is not an ingredient we use. We use hydroquinone all the time to help lighten darker skin. 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.

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...
