Hi swati,
Thanks for writing in.

You seem to have melasma .
For pigmentation as a general rule-
Avoid sun exposure
Use a good sunscreen of SPF 30 and repeat application every 3 to 4 hours
Take antioxidant and vitamin c supplements .
Skinlite contains steroid and can damage your skin in long term.Better avoid it.
You can apply Depiwhite cream at night time over the affected area.

You need to consult a dermatologist as dermatology being a visual field, the cause for your pigmentation and the treatment required can only be suggested after proper skin examination.

Treatments like chemical peeling will be very helpful.Discuss these option with your dermatologist.

Take care.
