I am a working woman. I have developed marks on my face due to the rainy season in Mumbai. There is also mole like spots on my face and the colour of my face is not even. How can I get rid of these problems?

You should consult a doctor and include calcium and iron supplements in your diet. Apart from this, use a good sunscreen. Skin peeling and bleaching are very useful for patchy skin. Break a vitamin E capsule and mix the inner ingredient with few drops of castor oil and apply this mixture on your face. After 10 minutes wash your face with cold water and dab with soft towel. This method will help you get rid of dark spots and patches. Do not forget to apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going out in the sun. Try to wear full-sleeve dresses to cover your hands and use sunglass, umbrella to avoid sun.
