Sunscreen: If the darker areas are on the face and neck, sun is the most likely cause. You need an excellent sunscreen with SPF of about 50. I suggest looking for zinc or titanium oxide in the ingredients for the best results. If you avoid the sun and wear sunscreen every single day, your skin should gradually even out.

Foreign-made only.: Mercury is tightly controlled and virtually absent from cosmetics made in the U.S., but some lightening creams made in other countries do have it. It's illegal to sell mercury-containing products in the states, but people buy them online from foreign retailers, or bring them into the country in their luggage.

I am basically fair skinned but got tanned. Is it good to bleach and if so suggest me a very good skin bleach that works well.

No.: There's no medical reason to lighten your skin. If you want fairer and healthier skin, just avoid the sun and use sun block. Your tan will fade without continued exposure.

Please tell me what skin lightening cream is better for a dark skin person?

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.
