As I wanted to get rid of the many whiteheads etc on my cheeks I started using BP. First I used the 5% but this didn't have much of an effect so I (not a smart move I know) started using 10% BP on my cheeks. This did work for the acne but my dark tan (which I naturally have) faded. I became very white on my cheeks so I stopped using BP after a month or so. First I thought it was just because all the darker skin cells came off but after a month my cheeks are still very white. When I'm in the sun my forehead and nose area tan like usual but my cheeks just stay plain white, they don't even bun of anything like that. I'm kind of freaking out because of this because I truly love the sun and it looks so weird.

Has anyone had this too or can any one tell me what has happened and will it return back to normal in time?

It might just be a thick layer of dead skin. If you've been using BP for awhile try applying an alpha hydroxy acid or use a baby brush to exfoliate
