HELLO..thanks for your query.
You can follow a few steps to achieve a clearer skin :
1) Use a broad spectrum sun-screen and wear it continuously throughout the day.It is good to apply this even indoors.Ensure you have put on the sunscreen 20 mins before stepping out.
2)Use Glycolic acid based creams at night .They are good exfoliators and help you achieve a clearer skin.
3)You can use Vit.C based creams in the morning .
4)Orally Vit C (1000MG) daily can be taken or other antioxidants.
5)You can go in for Glycolic Peels with a dermatologist to achieve a better lightening of skin.These peels when done once on 15-30 days ,can achieve a lightening of skin tone to a great extent.
Lomella should not be used for skin lightening for long.
Hope you find this helpful.
Best Wishes!

Thanks for sharing your concern with us.
The results obtained with pigmentation reducing creams in enhancing complexion are temporary. Once the application is discontinued within couple of months, you will get back to your original complexion. Having said this, I would advise that you may instead try to have an even skin tone and reverse sun induced darkening of skin. For the same use a good sunscreen even if staying indoors. Take vitamin c supplements. You may also take few sessions of chemical peels to reverse sun damage and tanning. You may also apply liquorice or arbutin based cream like melaglow to brighten complexion as these creams are supposedly safe in long run.
Take care!
