In order to lighten the tone you must follow the instructions for application such as applying once or twice per day in the morning and/or evening.

Some people can easily maintain their lighten tone by continuing to use the same product but just once every other day. While others have to continue using the product at least once a day for maintenance. it is important to remember that everyone's skin is different and you have to find what works for you. For most the easiest way to maintain your skin lightening results is to "trick" your skin into staying light and not reverting back to its natural tone. The best way to do this is by keeping close tabs on whether or not you are starting to redarken. If the skin starts to redarken that just means that the melanin in your skin has found a more effective way of handling the product that you are using and has found a way to combat it. If you find that applying your product just once a day is not working for you, try twice daily and if you are still redarkening try using a stronger product.
