  1. Hi,
    I have brownish complexion and my skin is very sensitive to Sun. I have oily skin that is acne prone. My skin is patchy, means it is darker on upper lips, forehead, chin, underarms, elbows and knees.
    I have been undergoing some Laser treatments for around 5 months and is also applying sunscreens and other prescribed lotions etc., but is not getting effective results.
    What should I do to get an even skin tone and my original complexion?

  2. Hi Ankita,
    I can understand patchiness is a common beauty concern. I too faced this. You can try an almond and milk face pack to get rid of the patchiness. Method is here:
    Secondly, you should apply sandalwood paste as it heals, cures and gives the skin its original color. Other than that it is good for oily acne prone skin for summers.
    One more thing, keep using the sunscreens, they will help prevent the sun damage and patchiness further.
    Hope that helps you!
