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.

It is not possible to change the genetically determined skin color/ tone permanently. However, you may try a topical glutathione preparation e.g Gludase gel, twice daily. Glutathione is an antioxidant and is a skin whitening agent however you have to use it regularly to maintain the improvement.
