  10. Hi Swatu,

    The sunscreen that you are using is good so continue using that. For the face wash try using Himalaya neem face wash and You can try applying tomato juice every day for 30 minutes then wash off.
    Do this daily and soon this will improve the skin color and reduce the tanning.
    Use sunscreen when you go out in the sun.
    While going to bed you can try Clindamycin phosphate gel which clear the acne.

  11. Thanks for d suggestion dear….
    Actually I hav Himalaya face wash but it neva suited me…..patanjali aloevera neem did suit me well but now it is no more in market.
    I use Divya kanti lep at night so wen can I use tomato juice??
    And is biotique pineapple facewash not gud??
    Suggest me a moisturizer too coz no cosmetics suit me so cant try any creme…..and some part of face becomes little dry….so need a moisturizer

  12. Hi Swatu,

    If your are using kanti lep that’s even better since I like kanti lep and use that too. What you can do, you can mix kanti lep with some tomato juice like I do and use that on the face.
    This improves my skin texture and also fades any sun tan etc.
    I have not used that face wash so, cant say. but if that suits you that you can try it.
    For the moisturiser, try using Lotus Whiteglow gel cream, that has a very light texture and formula.
