Hello. Thank you.

I am Dr. kakkar(Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have gone through your query and it have noted your concern.
Acne, specially if severe grade, may heal with post acne hyperpigmentation and scaring.
I request you to kindly upload a few images in "Reports Section" for better evaluation of the severity and type of post acne marks/ scars and the most appropriate remedy for the same.

Brief Answer:
Remedy for post acne hyperpigmentation and glow

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. I have viewed the images.
You still have active acne however the marks are not very obvious in these images. Anyways, acne may heal with dark spots therefore you may use 2% kojic acid cream(kojic cream), twice daily, for post acne hyperpigmentation, after your acne have subsided. As far the glow is concerned I suggest you to use a mild exfoliating face wash e.g a glycolic acid and salicylic acid based face wash (e.g AHAglow S face wash). Use it twice a day once your acne have resolved and after you have discontinued topical treatment.. Don't use this face wash along with your other antiacne topical treatment as it may cause dryness. Use it after your acne resolve - for mild exfoliation and glow - and after you have discontinued topical treatment. Since it is an exfoliating face wash it will also keep your acne under control.
