Absolutely!!!!: Hi Aleena, It is absolutely ok to use skin lighteners to even out the discoloration of skin tones that yeast infections cause. What is more important is to treat the infection and decrease the inflammation. If this has been a long standing problem then I would suggest that you consult your physician for a work up of diabetes or other things that can show up as skin discoloration. ...Read more

The skin on my knees is so dark these days, it's really annoying me and I am ashamed of it. Is there any way to make them look lighter?

Sun block is key: Skin lighteners such as kojic acid, hydroquinone, and plant extracts should only be used if proper sun protection is used. Over the counter products are safe and generally contain 2% kojic acid which limit their effectiveness. They work by blocking the production of melanin which is the natural pigment in the skin cells. Always check with a dermatologist to make sure there are no contraindications. ...Read more
