I would like to ask you if you were born with dark color or not. If you are, then any remedy will be of no help. Because, this is in your genes, the traits that you might have inherited from your parents.
Then, I do not think herbs or any other medicine can help. Do not be disheartened. It is okay. You should thank God that you are healthy, complexion is no big deal. However, you can try herbs like Sandalwood, turmeric or aloe vera.

Seems it was improving my leuccoria only, it has now become watery ( no odor). Should I be concerned or is the cyst burst? Anyhow, would like to start using Ashoka to heal and exterminate cyst.

Sadia. For your condition the best herbs are Dong Quai and Manjakani.
I would suggest that you take Dong Quai capsules, one every day for a month. And after one month, start taking Manjakani capsules, one daily for a month.
these will cure your problems.
