Brief Answer:
sunscreens ,depigmenting creams will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

It seems you are probably having tanned skin.Sun rays contain harmful ultra violet radiation which cause skin damage.

First important thing is to avoid sun rays.You can apply a sunscreen for spf more than 30.Apply it two to three times daily.

It will be better if you avoid using strong cosmetics like fair and handsome etc and other parlor treatments.

At night you need to apply depigmenting cream like NILTAN OR MELAGLOW.They are safe for long term use.

In any case do not go for strong steroid creams like tenovate.This can worsen the condition.

Chemical peels has got excellent results in tanning.You can consult a dermatologist for peels.

Glutathione is an antioxidant and it will work in tanning,but it will work only if you take these tablets for a duration of 1 month or more.

Hope this will solve your query.In case of any concerns I will be happy to help you.Take care.

Brief Answer:
peels for fast results.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for follow up.


In my opinion no oral medications have a direct role in reducing pigmentation.They are used as a supplementation.So it will be better not to hope much from them.

Creams which I mentioned have somewhat different composition than kojivit and will work better.

However for faster results you can go for chemical peel treatment.This procedure is routinely done by dermatologists in their clinics.

You can continue with neutrogena and vitamin c.

Hope this will be helpful.Take care.Thanks.
