Suffering from hyper pigmentation problem in cheeks and upper arms and back. Effective solution to solve the problem?

Hi, I m a 14 year old black girl . I used to have acne for 2 years but it has gone now but I have been left with hyperpigmentation on my cheeks, upper arms and upper back. I am currently using Lush products (only cleanser, toner and moisturiser) which have been working well. However, I would like a very effective solution that would hopefully solve my hyperpigmentation please. Thank you.

thanks for using Health Care magic .

I would be pleased to answer your question

For the hyperpigmentation , the best option is to get your skin exfoliated by a better method like a glycolic acid peel done every 15 days . A better option for you would be to visit a Dermatologist to avail of these peels . Alternative peel treatments like trichloroacetic acid are also very useful .
i would suggest you get your skin examined by the dermatologist .

for a home based treatment , Application of Vitamin C based serum can be safe over long run.

Thanks and take care .
