Brief Answer:
Regarding acne and post-acne spots.

Detailed Answer:

Hello. Thank you.

I have noted your concern and I have viewed the image.

I suggest her to use a benzoyl peroxide creamy wash e.g Brevoxyl 4 %creamy wash instead of a soap. In addition, I suggest her to use a 2%Kojic acid cream e.g Kojic cream during the day and Adapalene with Clindamycin combination gel e.g Deriva CMS gel for night application. These are prescription medications and I advise you to kindly talk to your local practitioner for a prescription of the same.
