Hi!
You may use MELACURE for lightening dark spots on your skin. It can be applied at night after washing your face or any part where there dark spots.
Sunscreens have to be applied at least half an hour before moving out in sun light. Most of the commerically available sun screens work for 3-4 hours. So re-apply sun screeens again after 3-4 hours.

I have realised every time i go to the beach and i spend my time tanning, i always get red dots all over my legs. They are no painful or raised or itchy. They are just dots (look a lot like freckles). No-one else i know gets this, they all get smooth tans and then i have red dots all over my legs! I noticed this before when i was younger too.Why does this happen? Can i prevent it because it really doesn t look nice and makes me self conscious

Well,I have a question that is now related to a sunburn I received on my forehead that resulted in discoloration. I do not know where to turn and I can t afford to see a derm =[ Ok, long story short, I went hiking in Yosemite and received a sunburn on my shoulders and forehead (I didn’t wear any sunscreen). My shoulders have peeled and look normal now, however, my forehead actually formed blotches of tender pink. I noticed this a couple days after hiking, that there were a few patches on my forehead that were actually lighter in color than the rest of my face (somewhat pinkish). I then applied aloe vela for the next week, along with sunblock, and stayed out of the sun as much as possible. I never stayed in the sun for extended periods of time. After one week of doing this, the patches on my forehead are no longer pink, but still somewhat lighter than the rest of my face—my face is tan, and the patches are lighter tan. (not terribly lighter, but it is noticeable if you look at it in the right angle) =( Just in case this helps, I am a very tan person and never really get sunburned. My questions are: 1. What exactly happened to my forehead? Is this a normal result of sunburn? 2. Is this going to scar? Will the skin patches on my forehead ever return back to the same color as the rest of my face? 3. Am I taking all the right steps in treating my face? Sunblock, aloe vera? What else should I be doing? Sorry for all the questions, but ANY help/advice would be appreciated. Am I overreacting since it’s only been 2 weeks? It is just making me worry a lot and almost insecure since I am afraid it might last like this forever or a verrry long time. Worried Ron
