TAZORAC. It is my favorite for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation because no matter what color your skin to start, it fades dark spots from acne and folliculitis without lightening your normal skin tone.

Talk to your board certified dermatologist to be sure you get the strength and protocol right for your skin type.
