Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Hi!uniqueyari,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
If your complexion is genetically dark then nothing much can be done .If not,then you must use a good sun blocking cream at least three times day.There are certain creams which are known to lighten up the complexion like -glycolic cream,hydroquinone creams,kojic acid ,tretinoin cream etc.You can try any of these creams which ever your doctor suggests.
Along with this you can also go for chemical peel procedure which can improve your complexion.Make sure to take chemical peels only from a dermatologist.
Please don't get carried away by various advertisements in TV claiming to lighten the color.I've never seen them working.

regards,
Dr.chawda

Hi, so I have a little bit of dark marks on the side of my face. I use ambi fade cream and African black soap. I used to use proactiv but the prices have gotten too expensive. The dark marks came from small pimples. The dark marks are indeed fading, but I just found out about another product and it s a face mask that cures dark marks and exfoliates your skin. Is it a good idea to use another product while already using two others?

Sometimes when I am walking or sitting or doing everyday activities my vision will fade to black starting from the edge of my vision and working its way to the center. When this happens I become light headed, numb, and dizzy. I would like to know any possible reasons behind this.
