Having fair color is the wish of every Indian ( it is a common wish of every man and woman).
Some use lots of money for using cosmetics, some go regular beauty parlors, some do some make up using home products, some do it ion natural way and some does not have any option in mind so they cant take care of their face.
First of all always remember a healthy body and mind can bring you glow in your face.

I really like Dermalmd Glowing Serum. I would definitely recommend it for a nice glow on a special occasion. I did find that it caused me to break out, not horribly, but I'm guessing it clogs pores. Wish it didn't give me pimples because I loved the way it made my skin glow.
