I have gone through your query and image.

You have post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and tanning.

You need to use good sun protection and detanning procedure.

You should avoid sun exposure by using handkerchief , umbrella , caps etc.

Also a good quality sunscreen with SPF of 50 should be used (like neutrogena).

Also few procedure like chemical peeling with salicylic acid /glycolic acid will be useful.

Chemical peeling procedure is an office procedure available at dermatoogy clinics.
4-6 sittings will be required.Results will be good.

If you have have any further queries please feel free to ask.

Hi again ,

Peeling is to be done at dermatology clinic under doctors supervision.
Any qualified dermatologist would be able provide you chemical peeling.
It can be done at your nearest dermatology clinic.

Neutrogena or lotus sunscreen with SPF 50 is a good option.

Hope this helps.
