The oily skin does not cause hyperpigmentation or darkening of your skin. There is no great treatment to relieve the oily skin as this really is more a function of the genetics of your skin and your oil glands The hyperpigmentation may be able to be treated by a dermatologist through the use of various bleaching creams.
