Hope you are doing great.

Complexion depends on the genes which you inherit from your parents and sunlight exposure.
Complexion waxes and wanes over a period of time because of both internal and external factors. Have a well balanced and nutritious diet so that there are no vitamin and trace mineral deficiencies. Always use a broad spectrum sunscreen while out in the sun. Apply every 3-4 hours on all the exposed parts such as face, neck, hands, upper back, etc. Use a hat/ umbrella if outdoors to protect from sun. Solar exposure leads to an increase in the number and size of pigment producing cells.

Hope this helps you.

Hi nrakeeb885,
I Have read your question ,
Fair /Dark Complexion is generally due to the exposure to direct sun , or sometimes genetic reasons too. Skin darkening is due to the increased melanin pigments on the skin.

You can use skin lotions like sunscreens with spf16 or above , and alternatively you can use natural remedies like Yogurt (=curd)+lemon Pack, aloe vera face packs , sandalwood packs etc. these are quite effectively also.I would also suggest you to cover you exposed parts with the help of gloves or scarf etc.

I hope This helps you ,

Hi nrakeeb ! First thing if a person really love you. Will sure love your behaviour or attitude not your color. When you got out apply sun cream lotion with 100% UV protection. in exposed part of body, not depend upon their is sun or not. Take care. Bye.
