Hello. I am 23 year old female who works in a corporate sector. I have a dark skin under the lips. For which I took "Skin Shine" cream for a week. But it doesn't cure rather it darkens the skin around of it. Please provide your suggestion/solution.

We live in a society where fair skin is considered a valued trait of beauty. But genetic predisposition and poor lifestyle choices can often cause unwarranted skin darkening and localized pigmentation. These skin changes are mainly caused due to excessive melanin production. This skin darkening can also be a result of various factors such as overexposure to sun, damage due to chemical exposure, hormonal changes and even side effects of certain diseases. Skin lightening or whitening treatment includes a host of procedures which enhance the complexion of skin by targeting specific cells in the skin called melanocytes that are involved in the production of melanin. These procedures acts on these cells and brings about a reduction in the production of melanin, thereby decreasing the pigmentation of the skin and promoting skin lightening. Depending upon the severity and cause of the condition, we can take treatments. Last but not least, absorption of nutrients in your gut has to be good for glowing skin.
