Kindly dont use metasone plus to improve your skin tone, as it is a topical steroid and is not desired for your need.
Instead opt for creams for Vitamin C creams and serums which is an antioxidant and an whitening agent.
Remember to apply sunscreen with SPF30 in the day time.
And always remember brown skin tone is a beautiful skin color and is due to the melanin pigment present in our asian skin.
Whatever the commercial ads might say it is not possible to become of a fairer skin color by just applying creams.
Though you can enhance your complexion and prevent it from further tanning with the products I mentioned before.
Have confidence in yourself and be proud of who you are....brown or white makes no difference my dear.

Take care

Dermatologist Dr. Puvvula Kishore Kumar's  Response
Hi..dear jitthu..,
Thanks for choosing HCM..,
Brownish skin tone.....Skin color is totally genetic and similar in those sharing a common race. It is seen that people who belong to tropical regions have darker skin tones than those who live in middle latitudes.., This is due to the exposure of the ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Darker the skin tone, more the melanin present in the skin to protect it from skin cancer.Environmental factors also play a huge role in determining skin tone color..,
Hence don't use any creams..,
only use.,
1) Morning SUNSCREEN LOTION (Sunban,Suncote or Melaguard) avoid further tanning by UV light..,
3) Take plenty of vegetables and fresh fruits..,
4) Vit C , Beta carotene and Lycopene will give glossy skin.,
So don't worry about positive and follow above treatment.,
