Can Vitamin E oil lighten dark patches? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    (Of African descent here)

    I'm basically looking for a way to fix my face. I have two massive dark triangles under my eyes, making them look terribly sunken and making my bags appear exaggerated (genetic, I believe)

    And there's a patch on my upper lip (old eczema patch from when I was younger) that pretty closely resembles a moustache, and there's a shadow on my lower face looks like a beard (I would have made an awesome man, just saying)

    I've heard of some products like Meladerm being able to lighten these up, but 1) it's expensive, and 2) It seems to just bleach the skin altogether, which is not what I'm looking for

    So here in this case, would Vitamin E oil be the remedy I'm looking for? Or something else?
