Brief Answer:
Glutathione can help for a brief period

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Glutathione cream like any other skin lightening cream works well but the response remains only till the time you use it.
There is no permanent measure to make skin fairer as it is genetically determined.
Use sunscreen on regular basis.
Letme know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

Hello I am a young woman in my early twenties of mixed heritage and I like in the UK. When I was a child I suffered from severe eczema and a few years ago I had a horrific bout of extensive ringworm. I was based in the states for a while and as a result of this combination I have great skin discoloration about my body, also as a result of great sun damage I not only have great discoloration but my skin has darkened many shades and has completely changes. I had a consultation with a dermatologist a few years ago and was told that there was nothing that could really be done. I then received advise from a dermatologist in the states that the only way I could be treated was through monobenzone known as benoquin because my ethnicity makes it harder for my skin to respond to hydroquinone treatment but I am not interested in complete dipigmentation. Mequinol was then suggested but unfortunately I have been unable to find these treatments for my problems in the uk. I have tried creams and many things for my problems, is there any hope for me?
