My skin is little bit dark, due to exposure in sun past several year my skin looks so dark may be because of tanning. Pls suggest me some oral medication which will help me to reduce melanin level.

Avoid sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The sun's rays are strongest during these hours.Cover up. Wear tightly woven clothing that covers your arms and legs. Consider wearing clothing specially designed to provide sun protection. A broad-brimmed hat and sunglasses with a high UV-protection rating also will help.

Use sunscreen frequently and liberally. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

Reapply sunscreen every two hours — or more often if you're swimming or perspiring.

consult dermatologist if problem persists long
