Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Natural complexion is the best.

Cosmetics do more harm than good. You can avoid them.

Melanin pigment in the skin protects against cancers.

Presence of more melanin in the skin gives the dark complexion.

You can use sunscreen lotions which help in preventing tan due to sun.

There are mild peeling agents with salicylic acid used in skin peel treatment.

To discuss regarding the skin peel treatment , consult a dermatologist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/dermatologist
