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.
