Brief Answer:
Use glutathione

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
You can try glutathione capsule.
It is safe and effective.
One capsule twice a day for 3 months should help you.
In addition apply a skin lightening cream like kojic acid on exposed parts in night and a sunscreen with 40 spf in day.
You can also use a skin lightening soap like glyaha koj.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

It was prescribed by a dermatologist and there was very good results within 2 weeks. After 1 month's treatment as per doctors advice the above said hydroquinone cream as reduced to alternate days with addition of kojic acid dipalmitate (alternate days).
