Hello Shweta,
Welcome to healthcare magic.
The medicines you are currently using for your pimple and pimple marks seem fine to me.
To become fair, you could use a broad spectrum, gel based sunscreen with SPF 30 and above every 4 hours even in cloudy weather and even while indoors. Most of the "fairness creams" available in the market have sunscreen component along with niacinamide. ( which is in melaglow cream which you are currently using).
You could also opt for glycolic peels done by a qualified dermatologist. This will help to remove the existing tan and will give you a better complexion.
Eat a healthy diet rich in anti oxidants.
Have lots of water.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Johny Chacko.
