Doctor

A:   Thank you for you question. The best way to regain your natural skin complexion is to avoid excessive sun exposure and wear protective sun screen of at least spf 30 when you will be out in the sun. We generally advise against using skin lightening creams as the chemicals it contains can be harmful to the skin, cause permanent damage and scarring, and may even contribute to the development of skin cancer. We recommend you refrain from using such creams unless prescribed by and monitored by a certified dermatologist.
