Dark Skin Treatment: There are a number of topical agents that can help with hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin).

Stop doing this: The vitamin C probably won't work. Very big doses can wreck your kidneys.

I suggest nothing: In the dominent culture of the United States, which is what most of the world usually follows, pressuring someone to change their natural skin color is considered to be the height of backwardness and ignorance. That stuff is likely to disfigure you, and to what purpose? Anyone worth knowing / loving doesn't care at all about your skin tone, and workplace discrimination is utterly illegal. ...Read more
