Bleaching my face to get skin tone right! Should I?

Ok... I am african american guy whith medium brown skin... well on my body... I used to have it on my face but my skin on my face is 2 shades darker than the rest of my body & it looks very ugly like that.. I want my face to shine & look young again but I have had acne for 5 years & now that it's stopped... it left my face with healed scars and hyperpigmentation & it looks horrible! Even now that it's gone... it still left damage..... Some of my friends had said bleaching my face... will make it normalise to it's original color! Also I read that it helps alot on another messageboard! Here's what a poster had to say about it!

Here are some bleaching creams that really work on black skin. I'm speaking from experience. Try TOPICLEAR, AFRICAN FORMULA or FAIR AND WHITE( EXTRA STRENGTH). These work really fast especially the last one. If your natural skin tone is very dark then you might not get any results, but if you are medium brown to light skinned, you will get results. You will start seeing progress after a few days to a week after using these creams properly. Guaranteed! They work for me, so I hope they will help you. You can get these on the internet or in any beauty supply store and they are way less than $10.00. Good luck. These products do have hydroquinone but in very small doses. They won't damage your skin and in little time you'll see results. Why go natural and wait forever to see any results????

Okay fine!

You can search for bleaching products with Kojiic Acid. This is natural and should be just as good as hydroquinone. Search the net or call your beauty supply store and ask for a skin bleach with that ingredient.

So should I give it a go!?

yes! try it. good luck! I like the prescription hydroquinone 4%, it works pretty fast. and kojic acid products are supposed to work especially well for dark/ethnic skin.

I'm using porcelana and I was afraid at first from what I read about chronic skin problems later on, but 2% is not too much and I only leave it on for an hour a day, I think african americans who have had serious skin problems from using hydroquinine, are those who used it with high concentrations of hydroquinine, this stuff is banned in other countries, I know, I'm using it trying to get rid of the redness and red marks on my very fair skin.
