Avoid sunlight: There is no practical way to lighten skin beyond what your genetics allow. If you avoid sunlight exposure, the skin will become as pale as it can be. That is the best you can do.

Sunblock moisturizer: Many people use over-the-counter moisturizers that contain sunscreen. Avoiding exposure to the sun will let skin lighten up. However, one should take extra vitamin d to make up for not getting vitamin d from the sun. Although having tanned skin from sun exposure is not a medical illness, there are a few uncommon hormonal medical conditions that can cause skin darkening.

The product you: mention is something I'm not familiar with. Skin tone is a secondary characteristic but I understand that various cultures attach meaning to it. More important than changing skin tone is, in my opinion, the need to stay neat and clean. Showering washes away dead skin cells which can help you feel good. Treating others the way you wish to be treated is the most attractive trait of all. Shanti.
