Dry skin, facial skin darkens and gets dull on exposure to sun. Which cream will aid skin lightening?

Hello, One of my friend suggested me to use Melacare cream as i was in search of good skin lightening creams. I used some most of the products available in the market - Ponds, Olay, Lakme but i was not satisfied. My skin looks good if i stay at home, but when i go out,within 1 hour of time, my face becomes dark and dull. Mine is a dry skin type and i am of age 23. Please let me know whether this cream would give me the expected results. Thanks.

Hi there
i can understand your concerns.According to your history i think its just the sunlight that is affecting your complexion.So try to avoid sunlight especially between 9am - 4pm,liberally use sun block or screen of SPF more than 30,have a good night sleep,and drink plenty of water(2-3l) a day with vegs and friuts in your diet.
And please do not use the creams and ointments suggested by someone as it can do more harm than benefit. ALWAYS go to a dermatologist if possible.
so the bottom line is i think you dont need this cream at this point,try whatever i have suggested for a month and contact me back with results.
all the best
