I have sun tan and it is visible on my shoulders, face and neck. I can describe as like a line or 2 divide my hand and neck into black portion and white portion. What will I do. And what is good for which I can get my colour of that portion back. Its very embarrassing while with friends who just make laugh saying "map with water and land"

Hi lybrate-user, we indians are very much prone to tanning. Applying a sunscreen can help prevent tanning. The tanning that has already happened can be taken care of by exfoliating and lightening agents like vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids. You can amp up your water intake, take more yellow fruits, tomatoes, green vegetable, walnuts, fish. We can discuss further through private consultation.

To reduce weight and body fat you should avoid all foods that come in a packet including oils, white sugar, maida & milk products. Increase consumption of fruits, veggies, nuts & seeds, legumes & sprouts. Reduce intake of rice & wheat based foods & increase cooked veggies, curries and lentils.

My problem is with my son's skin colour. He is 14 years old. I am his mother. My son overall has a brownish complexion but his face, cheeks, legs, arms and hands are darker probably as they remain exposed to the sun. He is suntanned. I am quite fair. I don't know why his legs are so brown as he wears full pants outdoors. His arms are tanned though he wears half shirts outdoors. I have tried sunscreen but it didn't work. I check his skin colour everyday before and after school by forcing him to wear an underwear only. I find that during the day he has tanned. This doesn't happen to other boys. He came back home from school and I forced him to wear an underwear and sit so that I can determine his skin colour. He was as if shining brown. Furious, I slapped his cheek hard enough to leave alternate red and brown marks on his cheeks. It was Sports Day and he had to wear shorts to run. I was disappointed. His legs will surely tan. He lost the race. When back home, I got angry for his loss and kicked his legs and scratched his arms. It left red marks on the tanned skin. He screamed in pain. It really hurt. I found he looks most tanned wearing an underwear and by putting oil on his entire skin. I want to make my son really fair. His friends are fair. I am also fair. I washed his legs thoroughly with soap and scrubber but the skin remained brown. If you tell darkness is a beauty, that is not an answer. I am fed up with his brownish complexion. Doctor, please tell me how I can make his skin fair and tell me where I can submit some photos of my son to you.

The way you are dealing with your son is definitely not going to help in any manner. Every individual has a particular skin colour and one needs to accept that. For healthy glowing skin one needs to maintain healthy lifestyle and good skin care. There are treatments available for skin lightening but the aim is to get rid of pigmentation, blemishes or uneven skin tone.
