QI am a 19 year old male. I was fair 4-5 years ago. I’ve suddenly grown dark on my face and also developed dark circles, although my body is fair. On consulting a doctor, I was told that it was because of hyper-pigmentation. What should I do about this?

AApply a sunscreen with high SPF before going out in the sun. Use a facial scrub once or twice a week. Mix rice powder with curd and a pinch of turmeric. Apply on the face and rub gently on the skin with tiny circular movements. Leave on for a few minutes and then wash off with water. Mix honey and lemon juice in equal quantities and apply daily on the face.

Wash off after 15 minutes with plain water. For dark circles under eyes, daily apply pure almond oil sparingly and massage it lightly on the skin, using only the ring finger, for one minute under each eye. Massage in one direction only. Leave on for 15 minutes and wipe off gently with moist cotton wool. You can also mix cucumber juice and potato juice in equal quantities. Apply under eyes daily for 20 minutes. Wash off with water.
