Skin Creams for Brown Spots
Please remember that none of these work perfectly. Sadly, the most effective are still the hydroquinone 4% based creams (prescription in the U.S.) like Triluma which tends to be less irritating than the generic 4%, which is cheaper but more irritating.
It’s too early to really compare the two new plant based lightening creams from SkinCeuticals (Advanced Pigment Corrector) and Skin Medica (Lytera). There are small studies from each company but no conclusive data, in my opinion.
Remember that if you spot treat with these, you may get a lighter “halo” developing around the spots if you aren’t careful.
