Brown spots usually take 4-5 months to vanish completely. Since their is 2 months Gap between your sis wedding and your delivery, the dark brown spots will get fader by this time. Its better that you switch to other style dress. let the spots vanish naturally.

Once you have finished giving birth and aware that the soap you are going to use will not be harmful to you, just try lightening soaps and lotion to your body, then you can see a result in a month. Likewise you can try to put on petroleum jelly which really help softening and lightining the skin.

You can do away from it by applying orange juice,and and ointments.always make sure that you bath well before applying it on your body, you can apply it in the morning after bathing and in the evening after bathing.if you do this for two weeks and it is still not changing , then you have to go and see your doctor.

Well, spots may or may not disappear at the time of your sister's wedding. Whitening creams or lightening lotion can help lighten the discoloration on your face. But a sheer foundation make-up will you a lot during the occasion. Discoloration will fade after months or years depending on how anxious you are to get rid of them.

hello there, most of that skin marks disappear after delivery, that is all up to how your body works with it, some cases it does fade away fast another times it takes couple of months, what can you do is get a help with creams that help to get away from the skin marks but ask a dermato to prescribe then never look and use anything without a medical prescription otherwise you can run to the opposite side as you want, second you can get the help of make up it must help the visible places. cheers.
