Thanks for your query.
The dark spots you are getting is melasma and it can be due to:
-Hyperpigmentation due to excess sun exposure,
-If you are on hormonal pills,
-Some medicines also interact with sun light causing pigmentation issues
So please see if you have any of this factor affecting you.
Consult a Dermatologist and get treated.
Take care.
