None of them: Just don't do it. In the US, where the world's trends are set, trying to change your natural color is considered the height of ignorance. Looking good is about physical fitness and self care, not skin shade. These chemicals can disfigure you -- Muchael Jackson had only a mild case and he looked awful. Embrace what nature gave you, get / stay fit and trim, and be proud of yourself. ...Read more

Naturally dark?: Naturally dark skin is genetically determined, and runs in the family. A person gets darker after being in the sun, and lighter when out of the sun. If one is the same color as one's parents, siblings, and other relatives in the racial group, then one's color is most likely normal. If one is much darker than other family members, then a primary care doctor can evaluate for a hormonal problem. ...Read more

Get more tan?: Bleaching is usually not the good option for evening out the skin tone but perhaps more tanning may help if you do not mind having an even darker skin.

Skin pigmentation: The burned skin area will heal completely, but it's possible the skin coloration changes will remain. This is more likely to happen if the healing skin was exposed to sun while healing. After 6 months, if the color is still darker than surrounding skin, it's possible to use a skin lightener (based on hydroquinone) to lighten the area. ...Read more
Mole removed(w/out biopsy) & w/in 2 weeks it grew back. Not perfect circle & dark center & gets lighter until blends w/ skin around.Should i b concerned?
Mole removal: First of all, moles should always be biopsied when removed. Often moles will regrow if the original mole was deeper below the skin and a shave removal was done. I would have original dermatologist look at the area who removed it to make sure it is just pigment regrowth from an incompletely removed mole. ...Read more
