bleaching face?

I have been using the acne regimen (with the BP gel) for about a month now. I absoultely love the results but I have one question. I know that BP can bleach clothing or hair, but can it "bleach" my face? It is starting to seem as though where I once had freckles there are lighter spots of skin. Does anyone know if this is possible? :think:

Has anyone had the same experience?

Thank you in advance for your help.

It won't bleach the skin, otherwise you would get that right away.

I have a theory though. It does make the skin turn over more quickly- AFAIK freckles form because of the action of the Sun on skin- they turn brown much more quickly than the surrounding skin.

If you turn the skin over quickly, then the freckles will fade more rapidly.
