Hi there.
I would love to recommend a single cream or potion that is a 'quick fix' for all complexion issues but honestly there is no such general panacea!
it all depends on your skin type & it would be best if you could visit your nearest local dermatologist or cosmetologist. YOu could refer this XXXXXXX website doctors' list & visit one in your vicinity. Alternatively, you could come across to me if you are from Bangalore or nearby.
What i can recommend is that whatever cream you used to improve your complexion, make sure your face cleansing/toning/moisturizing routine is pucca.
Also ensure you use a good quality sunscreen that works for you. Here Again, one cream does not work for all..but i would go with Neutrogena's Ultrasheer Moisturizing sunscreen with an SPF of 30/45 for Asian skin types. This has to be ideally applied every 3 hrs during daylight hours' & reapplied if sweating or washing the face.
The lightening cream depends on the skin type & various other parameters' but do try the Depiwhite skin lightening crea. Both will be available at any large chemist/pharmacy.
Good Luck & wish you a fair countenance always. Cheers!

Your welcome. If done, please do close the query; else it keeps bouncing back in the inbox. If you find time, please do give us a healthy rating ;-)
Depiwhite is one of the safer products & hence i have recommended it to you online. Having said that, there are no guarantees in life & i reiterate what i said at the beginning...please do go see a dermatologist of your choice when time permits!
Cheers & Godspeed!
