Hyperpigmentation

Lately, whenever I get a pimple or any kind of acne it leaves behind a spot of discoloration/hyperpigmentation. This never used to happen to me so I’m not sure how to go about it, are there any products that might help?

I really loved this serum from Facetheory (it has licorice root, vitamin C, and tranexamic acid). But lately I have been seeing great results from this combination of serums from The Ordinary which includes vitamin c, alpha arbutin and retinol!

First do not forget SPF50 every day. Second, i would recommend for you to use a combination of tyrosinase inhibitors to target dark spots: ☆azelaic acid, ☆ascorbic acid, ☆(alpha)arbutine, ☆ niacinamide ☆ acetyl glucosamine combiner with niacinamide ☆ kojic acid ☆ retinoids ☆ AHA and BHA, especially the combination of mandelic acid and salycilic acid

I'm currently using a vit c ( dear klairs ). To help fade those hyperpigmentation. It's pretty effective for me. You can also check out niacinamide, azelaic etc. It's not an overnights treatment though. Lightening them could take weeks so it's about consistency too.
