Hi doctor,

I have a wheatish complexion. Can you please suggest if I can use Kojivit cream for skin lightening?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, you can use Kojivit gel (Kojic acid) safely daily. But, it only removes extra tan from your skin.

You can try using a Glycolic acid based face wash for better results of skin lightening.

Make sure that you apply sunscreen every 5-6 hours.

You can also get chemical peeling, microdermabrasion, and laser done from a dermatologist.
