Some degree of improvement is possible

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

So your problem is that of a darker skin complexion.
I wound certainly not advise you to apply Skinlite cream since it has to be strictly used under medical supervision,otherwise it is bound to cause various side effects .
You can start application of kojic acid cream over the pigmented areas twice daily .
Use a medicated sunscreen with spf more than 26 regularly before going out in the sun .Apply it atleast thirty minutes before going out and re apply every three hourly.
Take oral vitamin c 500 mg once daily .
Eat lots of citrus fruits and salads .

For complete removal of the skin ten and to achieve facial glow you can get either chemical peels or dermabrasion done from a nearby dermatologist.

Hope it helps
