Top 10 Best Fairness Creams For Oily Skin in India
The concept of ‘fairness’ has been quite misunderstood in India. Your complexion doesn’t change (unless you go for melanin reducing surgery) and fairness creams merely reduce or lighten the accumulation of discoloration, pigmentation or sun tan with certain ingredients. Therefore, fairness creams should be seen more as a means to brighten the skin rather than changing one’s skintone or complexion to be more “fair”. Our face tends to get very dull and tanned in summers so its the perfect time to enlist the best fairness creams in India for oily and dry skin which can be used by both men and women!
