Hi! When someone here finds a suncreen that does not add to their break out problems, can they let me know about it?? It is so important to screen, but some of them are just too darn greasy! Yes, Iwillbeatacne, anyone who knows anything about proper skincare will tell the value of sunscreen these days. Glad your spots are fading nicely. What are you using that is helping them?

dee dee, i'm actually using lustra, which contains 4% hydroquinone..i've been on it for like 3 weeks and notice a big difference...i keep hearing the value of sunscreen, but if i go out in the sun with a strong SPF, should my spots be ok or will they come back??

IWillBeatAcne, I would imagine that if you CONTINUE to use the hydroquinone in combination to screening that you will be ok, although I have not had much success with lightening products personally(they broke me out-not surprising)Is your acne now under control and you are just working on the lightning aspect of all of this? If so, great for you!! D-

my acne has gotten a lot better, but i've noticed that the HQ does make me break out a little, but i guess i can only worry about one thing at a time....
