Suggestions on using alpha arbutin instead of hydroquinone?

Recommended Posts

Hello! 
I have used prescribed hydroquinone from Oct 2020 to Dec 2020. It didn't reduce the pigmentation around my mouth so I stopped using it after Dec. I restarted again in mid Feb only to find no results but alongside I used tretnoin which helped my pigmentation around mouth. I use hydroquinone for several spots on my face and was advised to stop using. Can I immediately start using alpha arbutin by the ordinary or should I give a break?

I would also add Niacinamide, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Azelaic Acid. All those are Ordinary products.
