Hello

Thanks for posting your query.

I will be glad to be of assistance.

I can understand your concern.

If you follow a basic skin care routine, your skin will be even toned and also will get a glow.

The routine should be facewash thrice a day, moisturizer as required and sunscreen every for hours.

Neutrogena has good products. I have used it for a number of patients with good results.

You can try that if you find it feasible.

Hope my recommendations are helpful.

Please let me know if I can address any additional concerns for you.

Regards.

Hello

Thanks for your reply.

Freckles do not lighten with creams, however application of sunscreen will help by preventing darkening of freckles.

you can try a salicylic acid face wash to be used twice a day.

a sunscreen with low spf of 30 would be the best for your skin so that you don't get acne breakout.

Take care.

Hello

Thanks for your reply.

At night you need to wash your face and apply a night cream which contains glycolic acid. That had to be applied on the full face.

You will need to get a prescription for it. You can apply it in the dark circles too for half an hour every night.

This will help in making the skin tone more even and woo lighten the skin as well.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
