Dark tone around my mouth, how can I reduce the darkness other than bleaching creams that haven't worked before? (photos)

Ive had the area around my mouth look like a five oclock shadow, i dont shave ! Ive tried hidroquinone and still not results. I have pcis so dont know if thats also a result of that since my neck and knees are a bit dark too, and o its not a hygiene problem since i shower everyday.
