Hey Doc! Am 25 years old male. I am facing skin issue from last 8-10 years. Starting from the stage of puberty. Now, my skin has become very sensitive to sun that 5 minutes of exposure to sun result in deep tanning. Any pimple occurring on my face leaves scar on face. Maximum of the times it's not pimple, it's skin colour pimple kind of spot which is painful if touched and leaves very dark black spot. I have also taken homeopathic treatment along with chemical skin peel. Please suggest what to do?

It should never been used on face first. It is never meant for face. It will make your skin thin and light sensitive. Please consult a qualified dermatologist with a valid MD degree in your city. Please do not consult unqualified people or pharmacist or quacks who tell you that these cream helps. Treatment 1) use Rheacalm cream twice daily (company-Ducray) 2) Tacrolimus lotion 0.03% once daily at night on face 3) stop Clop G.

If you want to lighten your complexion, there are natural remedies that you can try to brighten your skin a few shades. Since many commercial creams are ineffective or unhealthy to use, turning to natural methods to get fairer skin is a smart choice. A common household ingredient — lemon juice — works especially well to lighten skin tone. Staying out of the sun and using natural facial masks will also keep your skin from getting darker. Protect yourself from the sun. Most of the normal darkening and discoloration of your skin is caused by exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. If you're extremely concerned about having fairer skin, staying indoors will keep your skin as light as possible. When that's not possible, protect your skin use SPF sunblock with a minimum SPF of 30. Most dermatologists agree an SPF 15 is not sufficient anymore. Dangerous UVA and UVB rays are still reaching your skin. You want 98% or more of the sun's rays to be blocked. Wear a hat to protect your face when you're outside. Especially in the summer. There are so many fashionable hats these days, you can also be a trend-setter while you are protecting your skin. Exfoliate your skin a few times a week. Doing manual exfoliation can really help to lighten the skin, since the process takes off dead skin cells. Keep in mind that exfoliation only helps if your current skin is darker than your normal skin tone, because it reveals fresh skin that is untouched by the sun. You can exfoliate your skin manually by using a body scrub or face wash with exfoliating particles. To make your own, just add a teaspoon of ground almonds or oatmeal to your regular cleanser. Using a scrub brush or a dry brush is a great way to exfoliate your entire body. For your face, use a special brush with softer bristles so you don't damage the fragile skin there.

Be realistic with your expectations. Skin that is already naturally dark is very hard to lighten more than a shade or two, especially using natural methods. Keeping your skin healthy by protecting it from the sun, exfoliating and using natural lightening methods is your best bet for keeping it on the lighter side in tone. Remember that consistency is the key, and do your facial treatments several times a week. For medication consult online in private.
