    You can try sandalwood with rose water face pack or turmeric and gram flour face pack for the sensitive skin. And for the dark circles, potato juice will work great. take a thin potato slice and rub on the dark circles and pimples marks at night. This is the easiest and most effective remedy.

    You should use sunscreen daily as the darkening on the skin is due to sun’s UV rays.
    You can apply tomato juice everyday in the evening and wash after 1 hour. This will fade the tanning but do use sunscreen daily as this will prevent any further darkening of your skin.
