Brief Answer:
Remedy for face skin rejuvenation

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr. kakkar (dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.
You may use 'Photoscreen depigment cream', for night application. It contains glycolic acid 3% and azaleic acid 12% which are exfoliating and skin lightening agents, respectively.
An alternative cream is Glyco-A cream (contains 12% glycolic acid). It can also be used with similar effects.
Additionally you must use a broad spectrum sunscreen throughout the day e.g suncros soft sunscreen (SPF 50). Reapply every 2-3 hours.
