Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in .
Pigmentation can be due to tanning and sun exposure. Also a few factors like a anemia ,liver disease etc.
Have done your hemoglobin level recently?
Do you have outdoor job?
Are you on any drugs?

My advise to you would be -
To avoid sun exposure and use good quality sunscreen like suncross 50 during day time over face and sunscreen body lotion of SPF 15 over body.
Also take vitamin C containing food like lemon juice daily .also you can take tab .Limcee 1 daily.
Also you can take tab.oxytard one daily.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.
Regards

Hi again XXXXXXX
Avoid any unintended sun exposure. Even one day sun exposure can cause tanning and darkening.
Suncross 50 sunscreen is good for face. Also a sunscreen of SPF 30 like sper sunscreen is good for body.Use full sleeves clothes.
Take one fruit per day.
Drink lot of water daily.
Hope this helps.
