                                Even when using a sunscreen we call all get a slight tan. If you just use these product on your "spots" you can create a slight halo around those darker spots.
                                We recommend using this product all over the face.

                              I have a few dark marks scattered on my skin from old acne but my face is otherwise clear. Would it still be effective to apply this to the spots specifically, or do I have to apply it to my entire face?

                                Even when wearing sunscreen you can have a slight tan just from being outside for a short time or driving. If you apply only on the spots what can happen is you get a halo around the spot from product moving and lightening the other area of the skin.

                              Can I use this without fading my freckles? I have very pale, Irish skin and pink/red post acne hyperpigmentation on my cheeks. Would it bleach my skin weird if I avoided the freckled areas under my eyes? Or could I just put it on the spots? (I don't have current acne, and I'm looking to get this with the vitamin c kit.)

                                You want to use this product all over the face excluding the eye area. It is not a bleach; it will not lighten your skin past what it was when you were born. That being said it will lighten freckles as they are your skin's reaction to the sun.

                                It's recommended to gently massage into skin. This should only take a few seconds as it dries down very quickly.

                                It is not recommended to layer to active ingredients on top of one another. This can sometimes be too much for the skin.
                                I would recommend using one at night and the other one during the day. If you use your BPO product at nighttime then use Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum during the day.

                                It depends on what is causing the redness. This product is designed to deal with hyper pigmentation. Generally this presents itself as a darkening on the skin. It can be caused by many things such as sun damage, acne scarring (darkness) or hormones.

                                If the redness is caused by those things then yes, it could help minimize it.

                                For acne we usually recommend Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel, http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2146523. It contains botanical acne medications that help to work on current breakouts. People tend to see a difference within 2-3 weeks.

                                If using Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum people usually see a difference in 1-2 weeks.
