Overcoming Striped Skin Color?

I want to try whitening creams that are sold online, but I’m afraid it will have side effects, can the doctor help me know if the whitening cream is really good or not? have side effects or not? cth like what ?? about the help, or maybe there is another way or what? thank you

Skin that is striped / different color often causes lack of confidence and disturbs appearance. Sun-exposed skin becomes darker due to the overproduction of melanin. Actually, the increase in melanin production is a normal body mechanism, which aims to protect the skin from the dangers of UV / utraviolet rays. UV itself is divided into 3 types, namely UV A causing Aging or premature aging, UV B causing Burn or sunburn, UV C causing cancer or skin malignancy.
In order to whiten skin quickly, precisely and safely, you should consult a dermatologist. The doctor will provide advice according to your condition.
Here are recommendations for brightening skin that has patches:
- Bathing using soap containing arbutin, vitamins, vitamin E which can brighten the skin
-Using sunscreen with SPF 30 every time you go out of the room. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before leaving the room and reapply every 2 hours for maximum protection.
-Eat foods that contain vitamins A, C and E which are good for skin health
-Drink water at least 3 liters per day to keep skin moist
-Rubbing the skin of the body with a scrub or body scrub

It is recommended that you do not use bleach carelessly because the side effects are harmful to the body.
