How can I reduce dark circles ?

Hi , I am Vindhya from bangalore, India....My skin is oily and very sensitive and i suffer from mild acne . Recently i consulted the dermatologist and he prescribed me a sunscreen photoban 30 (Aqua gel) which should be applied in the morning and Fem Botanica cream which should be applied at night. I just wanted to know if it is safe to use these medicines for a long period of time. I also have dark circles . Please prescribe me a good cream for reducing dark circles.

Dermatologist Dr. Kruti's  Response
hello ms. vindhya,

welcome to healthcare magic. i will be glad to be of assistance.

i read your question. i can understand your concern. these creams are safe to use long term. however, if you are having acne , you would need to use a cream for that specifically, fem botanica will not help with acne.

using clindamycin gel twice a day would be helpful for acne.

for dark circles, kojic acid and vitamin C cream would be a good option to be applied daily at night on the dark circles.

hope i have solved your queries. please let me know if i can be of further assistance.
