Hi doctor,

My face complexion is much darker than my chest. The reason may be overexposure to sun and pollution. Please suggest me ways to get fair skin.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Tanning is a common issue in countries with a predominantly longer summer.

However, there are many effective ways to regain the fair complexion using depigmentation creams, chemical peels, lasers, etc.

In addition to those, the most important step is to use a proper sunscreen with SPF 30.

Depigmentation creams need to be decided based on the depth and darkness of the pigmentation.

Kindly upload appropriate images, so that we can assess your condition and suggest you the necessary creams accordingly.


Treatment plan:

Photoban 30 SPF lotion 2 mL daily morning for the whole face and it needs to be washed off in the evening.
