hello dear.
i am happy for sharing your problems.
you took your drugs ,that does not create problems,so be calm & happy.
- Chlorine is highly harmful for your will make your skin dry and also aids the skin in losing moisture excessively. Take a shower with lukewarm water & soap for rid of the chlorine in your skin.
- Put lots of moisturizer on your skin after a bath. It is also a good idea to apply a light waterproof sunscreen lotion like lotus sun block SPF40,neutrogena fine fairness sunscreen SPF70,calamine lotion,aloevera gel...
- Banana is known to be a good cleanser. Use a banana pack to reduce the dark spots around your face, neck, arms and legs. Let the pack be till it dries up completely and then rinse.
- Drinking lots of water, a regular intake of fresh fruits and vegetables with vitamin C and A will give your skin that much needed glow.
yes vaseline is good brand ,you can use it also.
hope this will help you.
feel free to ask your query .
best regards.

Please tell me when i should apply water proof lotion as mentioned in the reply.Should i apply it before going to swimming.If that is the case how much time after applying it should i start swimming so that the applied layer of cream or lotion is able to do its duty.

As mention below

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Welcome back and happy to see you again.
You should apply the waterproof sunscreen lotion 15-20 minutes before going to swimming. So in this time lotion will be absorbed and work effectively.
Hope I answered your question.

Would you please suggest me the best fairness cream which will help to SIGNIFICANTLY improve my skin tone.I am NOT looking for a product the makes me look fairer because of the product's cream's colour or layer on my skin and face, but because of my improved skin tone as a result of the product's very good long lasting effect on my skin and face

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear.
I am not saying 100% that ,this cream give you 100% results,because it depends on person to person.
It is also depend on how many times your skin expose to sun & chlorine .
If your skin is repeatedly expose to sun & chlorine ,then result of lotion also alters.
Earlier ,i was recommended some lotions,which are good & effective.
hope you understand.
best regards.
