Hi there , skin tone or color usually is primarily due to the presence of melanin in the skin. Skin color ranges from almost black to white with a pinkish tinge due to blood vessels underneath. genes are usually responsible for the variation in skin color.
The natural skin color can be darkened as a result of tanning due to exposure to UV light. day variation is usually due to dryness and hydration but not actually in tone , avoiding direct exposure to sun and using sun protections will help.

Hi, it is important to have clear skin free from blemishes rather than fair skin. Use a sunblock SPF>30 to prevent sun damage. You can apply the paste of 2 almonds and fresh milk before bath. Long term use will give the desired results.

Hi,thanks for query.Dear please understand that there are no miracle treatment for this.Your skin color is due to a chemical produced in your skin,which determines your skin color.The only thing you can do for this to have good nutritious diet rich in vitamins and minerals.Avoid junk food and protect your skin from pollution as much as possible.There are various creams available in the marker,but their effect is doubtful.
wishing you good health.

Avoid sun exposure. Stop eating junk food. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Use sunblock cream with SPF25 to protect from sunlight darkening skin.
