I am facing a problem with skin colour of my arms which are much darker than rest of my body. Even my face is lightly dark but not much when compared to my arms. Its really awkward and i feel discomfortable to show my hands to anyone.

Outdoor activities make our skin tan. The only option is to wear protective full sleeves clothing and cover as much as possible. Usage of a cap or hat and umbrella is encouraged. Skin already tanned can be treated with de-pigmenting creams and other oral medications. A good skin care regimen comprises 4 steps - cleansing, toning, moisturizing and sun block. Based on your skin type, a dermatologist will recommend you appropriate products. Any medical cause of pigmentation should be rule out.
Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
Hi Greetings. Looks like you are having sun damaged skin over your sun-exposed areas like arms , face and neck region. Peels will definitely help you solve your problems. Make sure you get it done by a well qualified, trained and good dermatologist, that's very important. And you need to use a sunscreen having UV A & UV B protection both regularly, at least twice daily.You may consult me on follow up messeges .Regards, Dr Anshul Jain, Nagpur
