Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is not possible to reduce melanin by any home remedies. Vitamin C and Glutathione might inhibit melanin production to some extent.
The production of melanin in skin is based genetically. So, do not try to reduce melanin by any home remedy.

However,you may consult the dermatologist.

Thanks.
