Hello doctor,

I have a very dark skin. One of my friends used skinlite cream and she has turned very fair. Can I also use that cream to get a fair and glowing skin?  I really want a fair skin. I am just tired of my skin. Please help me doctor.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Natural complexion is the best.

Melanin, the pigment responsible for the skin color has protective effects.

Use cleanser like cetaphil to wash your face.

You can use sunscreen lotions like shade lotion regularly 2-3 times a day.

Skinlite is a combination cream with steroid too. It may do more harm than good. Once you stop using, it may worsen the situation or rashes may erupt.

You can use peeling agents like glyaha lotion to begin with and later with glyaha-hq lotion in the night after consulting you doctor.

Consult a dermatologist online for further follow up --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/dermatologist

Thank you doctor,

But I am surrounded by fair skinned people and I too want to have a fair skin and look good like others. Please do help me. I just do not want my normal skin colour. Please doctor.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You can go through the advice given earlier. That is the better step for long run.

Cosmetics which claim good effect can harm more.There will be withdrawal effects and reaction to them.

Do not get disheartened.

Eat lots of fruits and vegetables.

Take antioxidant tablets like Oxidon or Oxivit.

Chemical peeling is another option for your problem.
