1. A method for whitening discrete hyper pigmented spots on skin by applying to the discrete spots in need of whitening and not to the surrounding non-hyper-pigmented skin a liquid pigmented treatment composition comprising at least one skin whitening active; from 1-35% of a polymeric coating material comprising a composite polymer that is the reaction product of a silanol endblocked polydimethyl siloxane and a silicate resin; from 1-50% of a volatile solvent selected from isododecane, isohexadecane, dimethicone, cyclomethicone, and mixtures thereof; from 1-50% of a non-volatile silicone oil having a viscosity ranging from 20 to 200,000 cst at room temperature; from 0.1-40% of a silicone surfactant; and from 0.5 to 65% titanium dioxide in combination with pigments; wherein the composition upon exposure to ambient air and moisture in skin, hardens to a water resistant, water vapor permeable, conformable solid film and remain unchanged in adherence to the spots for 24 to 48 hours after application and is thereafter applied to the spots every 12 to 72 hours to color the spots to shade match them to the surrounding untreated skin while whitening the treated spots over time while the pigmentation of the untreated surrounding non-hyperpigmented spots remains unchanged.
