Hi thanks for posting,
skinlite contains hydroquinone2%, tretinoin.025%, momatosone furoate .1%

Hydroquinone or tretinoin can cause redness and burning and postinflamatory hyperpigmentation in sensitive individuals(as in your case).

Ban a tan does not have these in it so you can use it
Use a sunscreen like sunban in addition
mild steriod cream once a day will also help

Hope this answers your query

3.OLIVE OIL had anti- inflammatory properties and is hence a very effective remedy for Hyper pigmentation,

1. ingredient of skin lite cream causes pigmentation when exposed to sunlight, or could be adverse effect of the medicine.
2. for your dark area on nose, take 2 spoonful gram flour and add a pinch of haldi (turmeric) along with few drops of lemon juice and 1 spoonful curd and make a paste and apply this pack on your nose.
