When I was born my skin colour is fair. But my mom used olive oil and it turn my skin colour to black. How to overcome from this problem and get fair colour.

Hi, application of olive oil doesn't make anyone dark. This is genetic. Having fair skin at childhood and then becoming dark involves many factors such as hereditary, dietary, pollution and suntan. So you have to include fruit juices in your diet daily like citrus fruits. Don't apply any creams that are shown in commercials. But use sunsreen with spf above 25 daily 1/2 an hour before going out.
