Thanks for writing to us.

Wash your face several times a day, with a very mild soap rich in moisturizing oils. This will clean your face and prevent infections.
Exfoliate your skin twice a week, to remove dead skin cells and dirt from the pores of your skin.
Rub a small piece of ginger on the white spots for 5 minutes, 3 times a day. Doing so will stimulate the skin cells and improve blood circulation to the white spots, thus making them disappear.
Crush some cabbage leaves and extract the juice. Dab the affected areas with this juice.
Crush some ginger and extract the juice. Mix the juice with lemon juice and water and consume it.
Having walnuts and figs regularly for a month also help in getting rid of white spots and patches.
Apply tulsi oil on the affected area.
Grind about 25 grams of radish seeds and mix them in 2 teaspoons vinegar. Apply the paste on the affected areas, to treat white spots.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

Thanks for writing to us.
from the description provided, you developed post inflammatory hyperpigmentation at the site of acne or it could also be Pityriasis alba that is common in people having dandruff scalp.

As such the post inflammatory hypopigmentation would resolve on its own with time. However for faster resolution or for treating pityriasis alba you may apply steroid cream and tacrolimus ointment once daily.As such natural home remedies do not work for such lesions. Many say use of cabbage juice, honey and turmeric, ginger juice etc help white spots heal but have I have never advocated use of such things over face.
As far as dandruff is concerned, use of ketoconazole based shampoo should help.
Hope that answered your query.

Take care
