Darkening In Face After Discontinuous Melacare Cream, Is Not Getting Normal. Alternatives ?

Hi, This is AAAA. I am 24 yrs old. When I was 18, my physician advised me to use melacare face cream for better results. I used it for 2 yrs. My face became so bright and neat. Then I stopped using melacare any more. Suddenly my face became very dark. Initially i thought it is temporary side-effect of using melacare and thought to wait for some days to come to normal color. But it's been 3 yrs now, still my face is dark and I don't know what to do. Please suggest me some good face cream which don't have any side- effects when I stop using it and makes my skin to heal. Thanks for your time.
