Hydroquinone And Sun Protection

Recommended Posts

Hey i'm using hydroquinone to get rid of my dark marks at the moment and i start uni again next week. So i will be in the sun walking to and from class and around campus a little bit too. I was wondering how often u should re-apply the sunscreen. My dermatologist didn't mention how often and since i am in class a fair bit for lectures and stuff where i am not seeing any sun, does that time count?

its hit and miss day to day. i wouldnt say that its working generally. its been about 3 weeks and i have yet to see any results and the 4% is the strong stuff apparently.
