Hydroquinone has been a known, trusted, topical skin lightener for years now. Once only perscribed by a doctor, it’s now available over the counter to fade darkened skin areas like freckles, age spots, chloasma, and mild melasma.
Murad’s Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel is geared toward lightening those stubborn red marks left after a blemish is gone (shown with blue label). Their Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Gel (orange label) combines the hydroquinone with glycolic to fade general discolorations.
$60 Murad.com, Sephora and Sephora.com, various retail locations.
