Thanks for writing in.
The Skin lite cream contains mometasone which is very potent steroid .It can cause permanant damage to facial skin if used for long periods.
Now that you have used the cream for 10 months if you stop using it suddenly your skin can go to previous state.
Now you should taper the use slowly.
Apply now only for 1 hour at night time and wash it away after 1 hour.
After a week or So you can apply it on alternate nights.
In this way you can taper it slowly and stop.
For pimples you can use FACECLIN gel daily twice over the face .
Considering your marriage is due next month stopping the cream would not be a good option.Continue using skinlite till marriage then you can slowly taper it and stop it.
Till the time use good sunscreen like Suncote gel during day time and apply Melaglow cream at night over dark areas.
Hope this helps.
I would be available for follow up.

HI again,
Faceclin gel and Melaglow gel is available at medical stores .Apply Faceclin gel on whole face during day and Melaglow cream at night over whole face.

You can continue the Skinlite cream on dark areas at night for 1 hour then wash it off.After marriage is over you can gradually stop the cream.
For the weight issue avoid rice in diet.Limit the dinner to one roti/chapati.
Replace the night meal with salads.Drink 1 litre water every morning.
Drinking water before meals will reduce the meal content and improve the skin tone also reduce the weight.Regular exercise,fruit and vegetable intake ,water consumption will help you a lot.
Hope this helps.
