What is a good skin lightener/bleach product to use from drug stores?

I have sensitive skin. I want to get rid of dark blotches of skin and lighten my skin tone without my skin drying out. Thanks.

Sensitive skin should be treated only by a dermatologist. For dark spots; HYDROQUINE is great with the pigmentation. Reduces the dark spots really well. If you skin lightens easily, Palmer's make mild 2% hydroquine which is avaialable in most stores.  (+ info)

How do you keep your skin from becoming rough if you cannot exfoliate over a tattoo?

I've been told not to exfoliate over tatts because it will fade over time...
My skin gets pretty rough if I don't exfoliate twice a week.
How can you remove the dead skin cells without harming a tattoo?

Yes, I could slather a load of lotion on, but that won't fix the problem of dead skin cells roughing up my skin.

How does my skin benefit from exfoliating scrubs?

I bought St. Ives Apricot Scrub for sensitive skin, it's supposed to exfoliate too. I have been using it for only 2 days, and I notice smoother skin, but how does that happen? Is there more than one thing that exfoliating do for you? I know it's supposed to create smoother skin, but what else?

1] removes top layer of dead skin [ so feels smoother ]
2] removes dried up oils [ less crud on surface, to make zits ]
3] removes dried sebum [ skin wax ], to prevent new blackheads/whiteheads
4] also seems to even out skin tone, but not sure how - improves circulation?
People with dry or sensitive skin should exfoliate only once or twice a week; others should do it two or three times a week.
NOTE: can use a face scrub to exfoliate body; but DO NOT use body scrub on face - too harsh!  (+ info)

What skin whitening products work the best?

I'm looking for skin whitening products to fade brown discolorations on my face. I've tried a couple with no luck. What skin whitening products have you had success with?

How can I make dark skin lighter after too much sun?

It's summer and I've been going to the beach alot lately, my skin is already dark but I can notice a HUGE difference in my skin tone. (I also have tan marks of my bikini). So does anyone know a natural way to make my skin lighter or an mild products which don't over bleach your skin?
sorry, I didn't metion that I live Australia not America and it's summer here.

Use a sugar scrub in the shower and then moisturize when you get out. All the top layer of your skin has been fried by the sun making your skin look too dark and patchy where your skin was the least healthy.  (+ info)
