Hi XXXXXXX,

Your complexion can be improved by 2 grades at the most.

Photoprotection is a must for improving skin colour.
Routine use of sunscreen cream like Photoban cream with SPF 30.
It should be used daily regardless of outdoor /indoor work and season of the year.Additionally physical protection with suncote /cap/hat/scarfs is essential.

You can use few skin lightening creams like depiwhite cream daily at night time.
Also special face wash like AHAGLOW face wash would be helpful.

Take good diet and lots of fluids daily.
Vitamin C in diet is must as it helps to lighten the skin.

Also for good and faster results few procedures like chemical peeling and microdermabrasion can be done.These treatments are available at skin clinics.


Hope this helps.
