Hi, Intake of foods that are rich in vitamins A, C,E and K are helpful in reducing the melanin production. The foods include Milk, butter, cheese, whole eggs, broccoli, spinach, carrots, pumpkin, can notaloupe, sweet potato, turnips and apricots are rich in vitamin-A. All citrus fruits, guava, amla, pine apple, papaya, black current, strawberries, mango, grape fruit, broccoli, potato, tomato, spinach have sufficient amounts of vitamin-C, but as heating denatures the vitamin you have to consume it in a raw form or semi cooked form. Almonds, spinach, sunflower oil, avocado, sweet potato, wheat germ oil are really good sources of vitamin-E, it doesn't act directly by lowering the melanin but it doesn't allow hyper pigmentation. All dark green leafy vegetables are rich sources of vitamin-k and it reduces the dark spots on a long run. The change of skin tone might not happen suddenly as expected and it may take time based on your skin complexion and type of diet you take.
