    • While hydroquinone is considered the gold-standard skin-brightening ingredient, it comes with the potential for many side effects, can only be used for several months at a time, and can’t be used during pregnancy.
    • In a head-to-head trial, Skinuva Brite was found to be nearly 30% more effective at treating hyperpigmentation than 4% hydroquinone.
    • Hyperpigmentation is a complicated process that involves many steps and pathways. Using a product that combines multiple brightening ingredients, all of which work in different ways and at various steps of the process, boosts results.
    • A.M./P.M.:

    Apply twice daily to clean skin, morning and night, on any areas of discoloration. In the morning, wait two to three minutes, then apply sunscreen over it. Do not use any other moisturizing creams or serums with this product.

    • RealSelf tips:

    • Because this product is hydroquinone-free, it’s suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    • This treatment can increase the efficacy of lasers and chemical peels. Use in combination with a retinoid for three weeks pre-procedure.

    • Some results can be seen as soon as 30 days, though long-term use is recommended for best results.

    • Sun exposure exacerbates any type of hyperpigmentation, so be sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
