Another thing to keep in mind is this, UV rays can cause premature aging and make any existing dark spots look even worse.
To protect your skin against UV rays, make sure to always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30-50 when you’re out in the sun for extended periods of time.
Don’t believe the hype when they say SPF followed by a large number – There’s no sunscreen out there that will give 100% coverage. Don’t buy into that marketing scheme.
It’s also important to remember that even if you aren’t outdoors, your skin can still be exposed to UV rays through glass windows or car windshields, so make sure to apply sunscreen to your before you leave your house!

Exfoliating regularly is another great way to keep your skin looking its best and help reduce the appearance of post-acne dark spots. There are a lot of different exfoliants out there!
Exfoliation will help with removing dead skin cells from the surface of your face, which can help brighten up any dull areas caused by breakouts or acne scars.
Try using a gentle exfoliating scrub followed by a clay based enzyme mask once a week—just be sure not to overdo it as this could irritate your skin! Once per week is all you’ll need. The key is to stay consistent.
