About Skinshine Cream 30 gm

Skinshine Cream 30 gm is a skin-related medication primarily used to treat melasma (dark brown patch on skin). Melasma also known as chloasma or mask of pregnancy, is a common skin condition that causes brown patches on the face. It is more common in women than in men. The discolored (grey-brown) patches occur mostly on the forehead, chin, nose, and cheeks.

Skinshine Cream 30 gm contains three medicines, namely: Hydroquinone (skin lightening or bleaching agent), Mometasone (corticosteroid), and Tretinoin (a form of Vitamin A or retinoids). Hydroquinone belongs to the class of skin lightening agents that works by decreasing the amount of melanin (a skin pigment) that is responsible for the darkening of the skin. Mometasone belongs to the class of corticosteroids that works by acting inside skin cells and inhibits the release of certain chemical messengers in the body that cause redness, itching, and swelling. Tretinoin belongs to the class of retinoids (man-made vitamin A) that works by increasing the renewal of skin cells, which helps in the natural exfoliation of the skin’s outer layers.

Skinshine Cream 30 gm is only for external use. Use Skinshine Cream 30 gm as prescribed. Avoid contact of Skinshine Cream 30 gm with nose, mouth, eyes, ears, or vagina. Do not apply on a cut, open wound, or burn skin area. In case Skinshine Cream 30 gm comes in contact with these areas accidentally, rinse with water thoroughly. Some people may experience skin pain, acne, redness, irritation, burning, itching, or stinging sensation of the skin. Most of these side effects of Skinshine Cream 30 gm do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to Skinshine Cream 30 gm or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. If you are pregnant, a nursing mother, or planning for pregnancy, it is advised to consult a doctor before using Skinshine Cream 30 gm. Skinshine Cream 30 gm is not recommended for children below 12 years of age. Do not apply Skinshine Cream 30 gm on ulcerated skin or wounds. Avoid sun exposure while using Skinshine Cream 30 gm as it may make the skin more sensitive to sunlight and cause sunburn. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen while going out to protect your skin from sunburn. Do not cover or wrap the treated area with a bandage unless advised by your doctor. Avoid smoking or going near naked flames as the fabric (bedding, clothing, dressings) that is in contact with Skinshine Cream 30 gm catches fire and burns easily. If you have a sulfite allergy, asthma, rosacea (redness and often red, small, pus-filled bumps on the face), acne, skin thinning, perioral dermatitis (redness and swelling of the skin around the mouth), genital itching, chickenpox, diabetes, cold sores, ulcerated skin, warts, shingles (a viral infection causing painful rash), eczema (itchy, swelling of the skin) or any other skin condition, inform your doctor before taking Skinshine Cream 30 gm.

Melasma

Medicinal Benefits

Skinshine Cream 30 gm is a combination of three drugs, namely: Hydroquinone, Mometasone, and Tretinoin. Hydroquinone belongs to the class of skin lightening agents that works by decreasing the amount of melanin (a skin pigment) that is responsible for the darkening of the skin. Mometasone is a corticosteroid that acts inside skin cells and inhibits the release of certain chemical messengers in the body that cause redness, itching, and swelling. When the skin reacts to any allergens, such chemicals are released normally. Tretinoin belongs to the class of retinoids (man-made vitamin A) that works by increasing the renewal of skin cells, which helps in the natural exfoliation of the skin’s outer layers. Also, tretinoin loosens the cells on the skin’s surface and unblocks pores by reducing the production of oil in the skin. Thereby, decreases pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads.
