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.

Hi I am 47 years old and have what I am now assuming is a nasal crease from having some pretty severe allergies for all of my adult life, my allergies are mostly under control but the crease is prominent now and white. I work outside and use sunscreen but still am exposed to tanning rays and while my skin darkens the line is more white than ever, not to mention I have Native American blood so it s very pronounced all year. Is there a cream that would diminish the crease? I m even open to plastic surgery procedures if that would be an option, last ditch effort kind of option. Any suggestions?
