Dark circles on the face, acne. Need a remedy


I am 25 years old. My problem is I am building up more deeper dark circles and my face skin tone is not equal all over my face. I have dark upper lip area and dark near the jaw lines. I have had serious acne problems before to which i had treated for few months. I obtained results but my skin has become more sensitive to everything now due to treatment. I follow a healthy routine but my problem is persistent rather getting worse day by day. Please help me with this problem.

Many thanks !

You are having acne vulgaris and facial melanosis.
Acne is exacerbated by stress,oily food, ghee, milk,heavy exercise, sleeplessness.. etc.
Take antibiotics like azithromycine or doxycycline for long time.
Apply clindamycine gel daily at night.
Avoid all factors suggested as above.
Hypermelanosis may be reduced by protecting the skin from sun rays.
Apply sun screen gel during day time and apply kojic acid and vitamin C containing cream at night.
Cleanse the face with salicylic acid containg face wash.
Have healthy food.
Take proper sleep.
You will be benefitted., still, you consult dermatologist.
