  • Sunscreen on your face every single day. I used to have ugly freckles from hell. I had a skin cancer remover from my face. The Dermatologists is the one who told me that is the best way to fade dark spot.s .

  • A dermatologist can do a light peel that will take away a lot of surface pigmentation from old acne. The deep pitting is more difficult to remove, but you can have other procedures that will help that.

  • I would suggest using a fruit enzyme peel once a week. That will do the most to lighten acne spots.

  • Is it just discoloration..or are you talking about acne scarring? Not much will cover acne scarring but a profession chemical peel or dermabrasion can significantl;y reduce the appearance.

  • First you need to start trying to lighten the spots. You can do this with the Banishing Cream Skin Discoloration Improver by Avon. Its only $8.50 and a jar with last a long time. Then you need to prevent any new spots from happening. I would suggest wearing Mark For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 during the day and if you wear makeup using one of the foundations with SPF included in it. You can try both at www.youravon.com/dhullum I hope that helps!
