There are many options to lighten skin tone including lasers, bleaching creams, and chemical peels. You should have a consultation with a board certified dermatologist to discuss which option is best for you. You have to consider though that no matter which treatment you decide to do that it will not produce a permanent result and that sun avoidance as well as the use of sunscreen (SPF 30 with zinc oxide) is required.

To treat dark circles: 1) take proper sleep-For lack of sufficient sleeping, people face dark circles under eyes. The first sign of insufficient sleep is dark circles around the eyes. You have to sleep at least 8 hours a day. 2) Almond oil is an excellent natural remedy to remove dark circles under eyes. It makes the skin delicate and bright. Almond oil gradually reduces the dark circles if you use it daily. Besides, you can also apply vitamin E to eradicate the dark circles. 3) rose water-Soak a cotton eye pad in the rose water and leave it on the closed eyes for 16 minutes. Practicing this treatment for a few weeks will give you dark circles free eye. To treat dark lips: 1)Mash up several rose petals and mix some honey with it. Apply it on your lips and leave for 30 minutes. The lip skin absorbs the ingredients from this mixer that nourishes your lips. You can maintain this solution 3 times daily. 2)Sugar is a remedy to scrub your lips. It removes all kinds of dirt and impurities from your lips, including dry, chapped or dead skin.

Hi lybrate-user, A fair, healthy and glowing skin is every body’s desire. Well it is not hard to achieve. A little patience and simple care with some natural and inexpensive products can do wonder for your skin. Pollution, stress and unhygienic condition can steal away your glowing complexion leaving behind dark patches, blemishes and wrinkles on your skin making it look tired and aged. Skin color is due to the presence of a pigment known as melanin. This causes a person’s complexion to be white or dark depending on its amount present in the skin. Try the following ways to get fair skin and remove dark patches from your face. 1. Lemon Juice & Honey - Mix honey and lemon juice and apply on face and other exposed parts of your body. Let it stay for twenty minutes and then wash off. For dry skin apply honey and cucumber juice of equal amount on your face and body and leave for fifteen minutes. Wash off and feel the radiance. Apply lemon juice on face every night. Remove make up before the application. Try to keep a small quantity at least for fifteen minutes on face. It may give you a burning sensation but will help in lightening your complexion. 2. Yoghurt - Apply yoghurt on your face and wash off with milk. They both act as lightening agents for skin. 3. Honey & Egg White - Prepare a face mask by combining honey and egg white. Apply the mask on your face and let it stay for few minutes. Wash off. 4. Honey & Almond Oil - Mix equal amount of almond oil and honey. Apply the mixture on face. Practice this remedy every night for a clear skin. 5. Papaya - Papaya is an effective ingredient for achieving glowing skin. Papaya is a rich source of antioxidants that helps to remove dark patches from skin. Rub a slice of ripe papaya on your face every morning. Papaya is often used in most of the home remedies for glowing skin. Tips for Fair Skin: / Eat foods rich in antioxidants. These foods help to slow down ageing and make you look younger for a long time. / Maintain proper hygiene. Do not use harsh chemicals on your face. After washing do not rub your face vigorously, instead pat dry. Remove make up before going to bed. Limit your usage of makeup. Remember excessive make usage means excessive use of chemicals that may result into clogging of pores contributing to pimples and blemishes. / Avoid long and direct sun exposure. Excessive sun exposure lead leads to skin ageing. Wear hat before going out in sun or apply sunscreen on your face and other exposed parts of your body to protect your skin from UV rays. Remember these harmful rays can steal your fair complexion resulting in skin tanning. / Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated. Hydrated cells will not end up in wrinkles, pimples and blemishes so easily. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
