I Read these postings after returning from my honeymoon in a tropical location with horribly embarrassing hyperpigmentation all over my face. I didn't know what happened. I'd had small areas in the past and I had been prescribed a compounded strength of hydroquinone of 10% to decrease them for my wedding. It was horrible!!! Areas that had never been affected were. I had almost black blotches covering my entire cheeks, upper lip and bridge of my nose. In the past I only had one small spot on my upper left check bone that was maybe 2 shades darker than my natural complexion. I am olive skinned and I didn't know what to do. I went on the web and read that I suffered exactly what I should be expected. Reading further I discovered all of the other horror associated with hq. I then set on my pursuit of remedies and found something that has absolutely worked wonders for me. Here is what worked for me:

First - cleanse face with equal water and white vinegar. Apply to face and let set for 1-3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water. Do this only once a day for two - three days in a row (note the face may become red and even slightly irritated from this treatment. If it does, discontinue this treatment).

Second - take raw potato juice and apply it to the skin. Let is set for 20 minutes then rinse with water.

Final - Massage a few drops of vitamin E over pigmented areas.

You will see results first day. Good luck. I look forward to hear your results!
