Brown patches on the face due to sunburn. Used sun block. Advice?

Last April my face was sunburned while visiting FL... two brown patches came up under the outside corner of my eyes just above my cheekbone. I have been very careful about tanning and using lotion with sunscreen every day since i burned last year and they seemed to lighten over time... I just returned from FL again and they are very dark again (I liberally applied 50spf face sunblock this whole trip)... (I am a 38 year old female) What should I do?

Thanks for the query.
Its good that you are using sun screen regularly.
Along with this use a depigmenting cream like melalite regularly at night.
This balanced approach will be much better.
This may provide her some relief.
