Dry, fair skin. Pigmentation on face, back. Tried fairness lotions, no relief. Advice?

I have a dry skin with Fair complexion . But I have been affected by pigmentation on my face and back from my 18th year. I am using fairness lotions(Olay), Bust still, I cann t get back my actual fairnes and also the brown spots just fades mildly and doesn t vanish completely. Do I need to take any Viatmin supplements . Please give me any solution so that I can get my actual fairness like it was before(my teenage). NB: I was applying some kojic acid creams and other prescribed by a dermatologist before 5 years which doesn t make much difference, hence I stopped. Also I was taking vitamin C tablets for 3 months.

Hi sujeetha,
As far as dryness is concerned, use products specifically meant for dry skin. You can try using cetaphil cleansing lotion and moisturising lotion to keep your skin well hydrated. For pigmentation as a general rule-
Avoid sun exposure
Use a good sunscreen and repeat application every 3 to 4 hours
Take antioxidant and vitamin c supplements
You need to consult a dermatologist as dermatology being a visual field, the cause for your pigmentation and the treatment required can only be suggested after proper skin examination. Take care.
