Brief Answer:
Kojic acid cream and sunscreen

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have reviewed the attached photograph.
If I was his treating doctor I would recommend him to use a kojic acid cream on the darker areas of the face twice daily along with frequent and liberal application of a sunscreen gel on the entire face 2-3 times in a day.
Various kojic acid creams available in the market are kojic cream, kojiglo cream, kojivit cream and kojitin cream.
He can use either of the above twice daily for 6-8 weeks.
Besides this avoid direct sun exposure and make use of umbrella, sunglasses and cap whenever out in the sun.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
