Choosing a product for fairness is completely your choice and by fair skin we don’t mean bleached out milky white face but enhancing your natural complexion by skin brightening. Men are indeed hesitant when it dullness and darkness of skin because of the stereo type that exists in the world women are supposed to use products for beauty, hope that makes sense. We still see men who don’t shave for a week and who wear same pants for three days but we are going to ignore them for today and concentrate on men who want to combat the dullness and darkness of skin by using a skin lightening or fairness cream.
The biggest problem is that men’s skin is tougher than women (due to frequent shaving i guess) and normal beauty products won’t work on them, they actually need a face cream that is specially meant for their rough skin. Also men need products that don’t alter their facial hair growth (which some of women beauty products tend to do). But it is really important to use a sunscreen at least which a lot of men don’t prefer due to the greasiness as most of them tend to have oily combination skin. Keeping all these factors in mind we present to you ranking of some awesome fairness cream for men in the Indian market which are available to buy both online and in shops.
List of Best Fairness Cream Women Brands
1. Emami fair and handsome
As we all know Emami brand has a lot of fairness creams.

This cream has lumino peptide which signals your brain to produce more collagen so no more signs of aging
