Hydroquinone-based creams like the Lustra you are using can actually make you darker if you don't take precautions against sun exposure. I don't know how long you would have to be this careful, but my guess is as long as you are using the hq product.

Regardless of whether you use HQ, it is a good idea for everyone to apply sunscreen every single day, come rain or shine, anytime in the day when you have to step outside.
