Do not use skinlite for removing tanning. Skinlite contains hydroquinone as well as topical steroid. It will cause fairness initially but it has many side effects such as thinning of skin, white spots, excessive sensitivity towards sunlight. Many of these side effects are permanent.

For tanning use a sunscreen like UVRID lotion/ Neutrogena Ultrasheer Sunscreen with 30-50 spf every three hours (e.g. 9:00amd-12:00-3:00pm) with a skin lightening agent like Ban A Tan cream at night time. This will give you good results without untoward side effects of steroids.
