Brief Answer: Take a lot of vitamin C Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXX, Thanks for writing in. Skin is an indicator of general health of the person.Keeping a general good health is essential for glowing skin. You should- Maintain sleeping and wake up timings. Get atleast 6-8 hours sleep a day. Drink 5-6 litres of water a day. Take lot of vitamin C in diet. Take lots of lemons ,oranges,mango,banana,papaya berries like strawberry /blueberry in diet.They are rich source of vitamin C. Almonds,flaxseed,avocados,capsicum,yogurt are good for skin. Along with this foods you need to- Maintain sunprotection by regular use of sunscreen application. Using cap,scarf,hat ,umbrella if going in bright sunlight. You can apply a mild depigmenting cream containing glycolic/kojic acid etc. In my clinic such patients are benefited by procedures such as chemical peeling, microdermabrasion,laser etc. Hope this helps. I will be available for follow up. Regards DrSudarshan MD Dermatology
