Hi there,,,Welcome to HCM
-I want to mention here that 'Being fairer is by no mean a parameter of
beauty' instead having a 'healthy and flawless skin should be one's priorty'.
-Oral glutathione as a skin-lightening agent is still a controversial subject
but it is considered safe by the FDA and present in the markets as OTC..
-It is given as 1000mg/day for 3-6 months for Indian skin and then a
maintenance dose of 500mg/day should be followed..
-If you are interested in taking this preparation then i recommend you to
use glutathione with vitamin C and N-acetyl cysteine combination as this
enhances its effect...
-In addition use a good sunscreen to protect your skin from further sun
damage and aging...
-Use a good night cream like 'yugain' which will help you to regain a supple
and radiant skin...
-Eat healthy and exercise daily..
Hope this will help you
