Hello. Kojivit gel or Kojic cream from curatio one pea size drop for full face at night for 2 months will lighten acne marks. But No creams can improve scars as it is fibrous tissue. Procedures like peels or laser help. So see a local dermatologist for the same.

Kojic acid cream is used to remove the dead cells of the skin and hence the exposed skin is more sensitive and can lead to rashes and also the skin will turn dry after using it leading to itching and hence don't use it.

It is not possible to change the skin type (the content of melanin which is genetically determined) of an individual. Your main concern seems to be tanning. UV A part of the electromagnetic spectrum is mainly responsible for tanning. Therefore, a good sunscreen should have broad spectrum UV A coverage in addition to UV B coverage, in order to be able to prevent tanning and it needs to be applied in sufficient quantity and every 2-3 hourly. A sunscreen with minimum 30 SPF would be adequate. It should mention both UV B and UV A coverage. Therefore it is important to select the right sunscreen for desired effects It should be applied in the following quantity: --3 ml for face and neck (a little more than 1/2 teaspoon) --3 ml for each arm (a little more than 1/2 teaspoon). A sunscreen should be applied every 2-3 hours. At night you can use a cream containing one or more of the Skin lightening agents e.g kojic acid, glycolic acid, arbutin or hydroquinone etc once daily to gradually fade away the skin tone. Demelan cream is one such cream, MARKETED by gracewell/glenmark pharmaceuticals. It contains glycolic acid, kojic acid and arbutin as main active ingredients. You can also opt for a few peeling sessions from a dermatologist e.g Glycolic peel Or Retises CT peel (Yellow peel, also known as Skin lightening peel) Oral glutathione capsules are also available online. Oral glutathione intake results in a lightening of skin color. I hope you will find this information useful. Regards.
