Using Melacare and such kind of creams makes your skin more sensitive specially towards heat or sunlight, so that's why the doctors has prescribed you sunscreen!
Include healthy, nutritious food, doing daily yoga or some kind of exercises.
All these automatically reflects glow on your face. Yes, the colour which is inherited from your parents/ ancestors, cannot be changed, but you can try to get glow on your face!
Apart from these, you do follow CTMP, i. E. Cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30 – a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare cream may be, 20-30 minutes before going out daily and repeat it's application after every 3-4hrs.) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone.
In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face.
Eat right and healthy that too on time, relieve your stress/ tensions, sleep well, stop smoking, as this restricts blood flow to your face and leaves you with a greyish complexion. Lead a healthy lifestyle!
Apart from this, avoid anger, anxiety, fear which increases stress hormone in the body and subsequently makes your complexion darker!
(Hormonal imbalances also plays a major role).
If the dull and dark skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter.
-Increase your Vitamin C intake (lemon, orange, gooseberry, etc. Fruits/juices, strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes, can notaloupe, and green peas).
- Eat more Vitamin A (nonfat milk, oysters, and egg yolks, carrots, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, or other dark colored produce). If you feel your skin is weak or not tight enough, that usually suggests a lack of Vitamin A.
Use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel or Bakson’s Fairness cream daily at night.
