Having skin darkening problem. Suggest cream for daily use and night cream
User rating for this question
Hello Doctor. Good morning. I have aproblem of skin darkening. My complete face has turned very dark, and the skin colour of my face can be easily distinguished from the neck's skin colour ( though the neck has turned dark, but not as much as face.) I am using a sunscreen daily, but it makes my skin oily and appear more dark. sometimes due to oiliness, pimples appear on my face making it more patchy due to pimple marks. My face has become so dark that in all my photos my face skin appears so different from my body's skin colour that it appears someone else's head is placed on my neck! Even if I use a bleach, sometimes the results are good and sometimes it makes my skin more dark. Can you please suggest some cream for daily use and night cream which will bring back my face's original complexion.
