Lightening darkened skin
The first approach to this is application of topical agents that have been proven to decrease hyperpigmentation. Some of these agents also treat acne, which will reduce the possibility of getting additional dark areas. Look into properly formulated creams or gels containing Retinol, glycolic acid, green tea, azealic acid acid, and hydroquinone. If you do not see results by two months, consider ViPeels.
