Skin with pigmentation

I am 20 yr old female. I want to know can I use a glycolic acid face was for daily use like ahaglow or klm klin? I have normal to combination skin with open pores. I have dark upper lip area and occasional breakouts too. Please suggest some good medicated moisturiser to go for also.

several skin diseases which can pigmentation on the face. Also the use of steroid creams also can cause pigmentation over the face. Hence it best you consult a dermatologist. For now use a sunscreen like suncote gel morning and afternoon. And a face wash like ahaglow-s or spongysal face wash for better skin. Wash your face regularly at least 2-3 times per day...Regards.

Hi.... For these you can use cocoa butter or vitamin E creams. Topical treatments with acids and chemical peels can be effective but can take a while for the skin to totally revert to its normal color.  Microdermabrasion can also be done, but this might require several sessions.  Skin resurfacing using lasers is also an option.  Consult Dermatologist for further advice....
