Lacto Calamine gives your skin :
2. Acne & Oil Control
3. Dead skin Removal
After applying, you'll sweat a lot.
Then you have to re-apply it again.Source(s): Self experience

Lacto-Calamine was earlier used as a lotion for soothing the skin especially during summer. The lotion had germicidal properties and more importantly had a cooling effect on the skin. The brand was also prescribed by dermatologist for skin rashes and sunburns. I am quite prone to pimples when I use creams but that never happened when I used this. you can try!

Lacto calamine is anti tan, anti blemish and anti acne
It gives smooth, soft and fair skin
One has to use it minimum for 3 months
cost is Rs 50/ for 120ml
Lacto calamine lotion is a soothing lotion contains Zinc Oxide (as skin protectant and anti-microbial), Zinc Carbonate, Glycerin (as ’humectant’ for moisturizing purpose), Light Kaoline (coagulative) and Castor oil (increased circulation and healing tissues) besides permitted colours, emulsifiers, preservatives and aqueous base. It evens out your skin tone and gives you light foundation like coverage. It protects from harmful UV rays as it contains Zinc Oxide which is a UV protector. It acts like a skin smoother.It claims for fairness factor but Im not sure of that. Also the shade is light so may not suit to dark skin tone.
