Ask your pharmacist for any cream with benoxyl peroxide. start with the one with 5% benoxyl peroxide, if your face aint sensitive, use the 10% one. also make sure your face is always clean and avoid cleansers and astringents with alcohol. it's usually too harsh on the face.

Inexpensive stuff to use.

The best product I have used in Glyquin fading cream. It is prescription, but you can order online. Also, try exfoliating with moist coffee grounds weekly. Moisturize the coffee grinds with honey & Vitamin E and let it stay on your face for about 15 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. Next, moisturize your face with Vitamin E. Also, take a Vitamin B complex pill twice daily. Do not pick the bumps because this causes the dark spots to be even worse. Also, if the dark spots are caused by ingrown hairs (not acne), try using tend skin and then shave (do not tweeze) the hair. I am female, and my skin is doing so much better now!
Try using Clear essence lemon plus vitamin c series.http://www.clearessence.com/clearessence.com/clearessence/productseries.php?cPath=44 . Use the perfecting serum or the smoothing cream. You can get it from any cosmetic shop or even in the market. It works really slowly but that's the beauty of it:it won't make u lighter. It may brighten your complexion a teeny weeny bit. I use the smoothing cream and I'm very dark but no one has commented that I've grown lighter. But I'm seeing results with each passing day.
I know what you're going through also. I used to have a lot of pimples, then i started to use pro-active but i still had scars all over my faces. What i did was buy Vitamin-E capsules with gel, then i poke the capsule open and rub the gel all over my face. Vitamin-E is one of the #1 cures to marks on skin. I did it and it worked. It doens't take long for you to notice changes though. Good luck.
stop picking the acnes, if u do then d problem is half solved. I did, and it helped to some extent and presently i use rose water, which is working for me. U might wanna try it
I have the same problem. My dermatologist called it Hyper-Pigmentation, which is common among black people. Your best option is to go to a dermatologist and let him prescribe whatever is best for your particular skin, because if you experiment too much, and follow alot of other people's advice you could end up damaging your skin or burning it. Your skin is very delicate. That is what happened to me. But my dermatologist gave me Brevoxyl-8 and Retina Micro, these worked wonders. I don't know your situation, but if you cannot see a dermatologist, the best thing is to wash in the morning and at night with Dove soap for sensitive skin, and at night before bed rub Palmer's Cocoa Butter alll over your face to blend your skin and fade the black spots. I use these products and my face looks great now. Also never, ever use skin bleaches or lighteners cos these products will casue more acne and will burn your skin and make the spots worse, if you use these you will be sorry, trust me I been there and done that. Good Luck!! I hope you find something soon.
U can try Betnovate C Cream, though a bit scarce, u can only get it from a pharmacy. Does not lighten nor bleach and d spots fades overtime. It was a recommemded to me by a pharmacist. I"ve used it and is good.
Honey on the face is a good moisturiser but definetely not for spots.
the best thing to do is to stop eating junk food and wash properly with detol soap when i say wash properly this means day and night and make sure you wash the soap offffffffffff properly

Acne Is A Message From Your Body Telling You Something Is WRONG Inside
Your body sends you messages all the time. Most of us ignore the majority of them. Acne, blackheads and many other skin disorders and all its related symptoms are after all a desperate message from your body telling you something is wrong inside.
Your acne, the infection, redness and irritation associated with it, are like an alarm signal warning you that your house (your body) is on fire. By ignoring those messages, your condition is bound to get worse. When your house is on fire, you cannot shut off the alarm, go to sleep and expect everything to return to normal.
By using drugs and creams to shut your body's alarm system, you are practically ignoring your body's messages and neglecting the root cause of your problem, thus making your condition worse in the long run.
The only way you can ever cure your acne is from within by listening to what your body is trying to tell you, work with it and free yourself.
When I finally figured that out along with what was going on in the acne and skin care industries, I decided I had to take action so I put things on paper and began guiding other acne sufferers using this new clear skin system I developed. Now, for the first time ever, the same clear skin system that has helped thousands of acne sufferers all over the world to transform their acne into a clear and flawless skin is available to you in a single, jam-packed, 220 page e-book:
Your treatment must take place inside as well as out.
It is important to scrub your skin with a facial scrub or preferrably a brush made with natural fibers.Uric acid,dead cells and general toxins are eliminated through the skin and would damage healthy cells if not eliminated.
On the other hand,i would suggest taking Vitamin A,B complex,B5,D and E as well as calcium and magnesium(Anti-oxidant,improve blood circulation and repair body tissue).Take GINSENG if you can manage to lay your hands on it.
Don't get too much sun and detoxify your liver using Aloe vera gel and fruit juice.
It will be convenient to do a peeling with a cream containg AHA or retin-A as these promote a change of old skin cells for new ones.
What are freckles?
Freckles, also known as ephelides, are 2 mm to 4 mm tan, discrete specks or spots which develop over sun-exposed surfaces, particularly the cheeks and nose. They are most common in fair-skinned individuals. Microscopically, the freckle is distinguished by increased melanin production. They are first noticed during childhood and are common in fair-skinned individuals. Usually occurring on the face, they darken on sun exposure. The spots develop randomly on the skin, especially after repeated exposure to sunlight and
particularly in persons of fair complexion. Freckles vary in color -- they may be red,
yellow, tan, light-brown, brown, or black -- but they
are always darker than the skin around them since they are due to deposits of the dark pigment called melanin. The word "freckle" comes from the Middle English "freken," which, in turn, came from the Old Norse "freknur," meaning "freckled." (Some speakers of Old English and Old Norse must have had a tendency to developing freckles.)
Freckles are small brownish spots on human skin, predominantly found on the face. Predisposition to freckles is genetic, though exposure to sunlight is a factor in how many appear. The gene for freckling is related to the presence of red hair. Based on recent genetic research, it has been suggested that this gene had Neanderthalic origins. (The basis of the claim is the age of the gene; this is not in itself proof, since Homo erectus pre-existed the Neanderthals.)
Freckles are small flat brown marks arising on the face and other sun exposed areas. They are seen in children and in fair skinned people especially those with red hair who have an inherited predisposition for them. On the face and other areas exposed to the sun they are an inherited characteristic. These small brown marks are most often seen in fair skinned people, especially those with red hair. Known as ephilides, the colour is due to pigment accumulating in the skin cells (keratinocytes). Ephilides are prominent in summer but fade considerably or disappear in winter as the keratinocytes are replaced by new cells. As the person ages this type of freckle generally become less noticeable. Apart from sun protection, no particular treatment is necessary.
Larger flat brown spots on the face and hands arising in middle age also result from sun damage exposure. Unlike freckles they tend to persist for long periods and don't disappear in the winter (though they may fade). Commonly known as age spots or liver spots, the correct term for a single lesion is benign solar lentigo (plural lentigines). Lentigines are common in those with fair skin but are frequently seen in those who tan easily or have naturally dark skin. Lentigines are due to accumulated pigment cells (melanocytic hyperplasia).
If the brown marks are scaly, they may be solar keratoses (sun damage) or seborrhoeic keratoses (senile warts). These are usually treated by cryotherapy. It is important to distinguish the benign solar lentigo from an early malignant melanoma, the lentigo maligna. If the freckle has arisen recently, is made up of more than one colour or has irregular borders or if you have any doubts, see your dermatologist for advice. They fade in winter and, in the absence of sunscreen, increase in number and darken in the summer. They have no malignant potential, and no treatment, apart from sunscreen, is recommended.
How to get rid of freckles?
Bleaching agents, the most conventional treatment for freckles, have limited success in masking the appearance of freckles. Bleaching agents attempt to fade the freckles to a color approximating that of the surrounding skin. However, they can sometimes lighten or darken the skin surrounding the freckles, calling even more attention to the spots. Occassionally, bleaching agents cause
rashes or chemical burns. Some people have had success using alpha hydroxy acids on a regular
basis, combined with sun
avoidance and the use of sunblock. Some dermatologists recommend prescription-strength retinoids for the treatment of freckles. Modern treatments for lightening freckles include freezing them with liquid nitrogen, and the use of strong acid peels or ablative laser treatments. Freezing, chemical peels and ablative laser treatments, while more effective than conventional treatments, can damage healthy skin, cause scarring and require lengthy recovery times. The use of Intense Pulsed Light is a new treatment option for those wanting to fade their freckles.
Freckle removal is easily achieved with lasers. Before lasers, it was difficult to remove freckles because the lesions are so small. But with laser, the treatment can be pinpointed at even a very small spot. Other methods used to remove freckles include laser resurfacing, Retin-A, and chemical peels. Laser resurfacing is a pretty significant procedure to recover from, so it is usually done only when there is severe sun damage or undesired wrinkles to remove as well. Retin-A is a good treatment, but good results take several to many months of use of the product. Chemical peels are of two main types, superficial, and deeper. The superficial peels, such as glycolic peels, are able to remove freckles, but usually with many repeated treatments. The deeper peels will get rid of freckles all at once, but recovery is more significant.
What treatments are available to remove freckles?
Efforts to diminish the appearance of freckles go back centuries. Ancient Egyptians used oil of fenugreek to fade freckles and age spots. In more modern cultures, lemon juice was a favorite home remedy. All of that gave way to modern cosmetics and bleaching agents, none of which have been overly effective. More advanced techniques including freezing, chemical peels, dermabrasion and
laser resurfacing may get rid of freckles and age spots, but such treatments can be painful, and
they may damage healthy skin or
Conventional treatments for freckles include cosmetic cover-ups and bleaching creams, neither of which have garnered satisfactory results. Heavy cosmetics need frequent touchups, and are not a good fit for today’s active lifestyles. Bleaching agents attempt to fade the freckles to a color approximating that of the surrounding skin. However, they can sometimes lighten or darken the skin surrounding the freckles, calling even more attention to the spots. Occassionally, bleaching agents cause rashes or chemical burns.
Some people have had success using alpha hydroxy acids on a regular basis, combined with sun avoidance and the use of sunblock. Some dermatologists recommend prescription-strength retinoids for the treatment of freckles. More modern treatments for lightening freckles include freezing them with liquid nitrogen, and the use of strong acid peels or ablative laser treatments which are also used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Freezing, chemical peels and ablative laser treatments, while more effective than conventional treatments, can damage healthy skin, cause scarring and demand lengthy recovery times.
Most prescription creams used to lighten the skin contain hydroquinone. Bleaches lighten and fade darkened skin patches by slowing the production of melanin so those dark spots gradually fade to match normal skin coloration. Prescription bleaches contain twice the amount of hydroquinone, the active ingredient, as over-the-counter skin bleaches. In more severe cases prescription creams with tretinoin and a cortisone cream are added. These are somewhat irritating to sensitive skin and will take 3-6 months to produce improvement.
There are now several highly effective laser treatments. The q-switched ruby and other pigmented lesion lasers often remove pigment without scarring. A test spot in an inconspicuous place will need to be done as they sometimes make things worse instead of better. Intense pulsed light (Photoderm) has a similar effect. Carbon dioxide and Erbium:YAG lasers vaporise the surface skin thus removing the pigmented lesions. Results are variable but sometimes very impressive with minimal risk of scarring. With superficial resurfacing techniques, there is minimal discomfort and no down-time but several treatments are often necessary. Unfortunately the treatment occasionally makes the pigmentation worse. Continued careful sun protection is essential, because the pigmentation is likely to recur next summer. Unsightly benign skin moles may be removed using traditional surgical techniques (excision biopsy or with a resurfacing laser.
There are also natural remedies to fade or get rid of freckles. Wash your face with sour milk. Lactic acid will provide gentle peeling effect without irritating or drying your skin. Lemon juice is a time proven freckle fighting remedy. It is not necessary to rub your skin with a piece of lemon. Applying the juice with your fingers will do the job. Fruit and vegetable masks (apricots, strawberries, cucumbers, red currant). Sour cream mask. Do not rinse this mask completely, just remove gently with a facial tissue, then apply a moisturizer. For oily skin - use lemon juice before applying the mask. Natural parsley juice (or parsley infusion) mixed with equal amounts of lemon juice, orange juice, and red currant juice under your favorite cream will help you keep your freckles invisible.
How can freckles be prevented?
Many people would rather not develop freckles or, if they already have freckles, they would like to get rid of them. Freckle prevention is obviously better than developing them and then needing to treat them. Therefore, anyone with an hereditary tendency to freckle -- who freckles easily -- should wear sunscreen whenever appropriate and also minimize their sun exposure. The aim here is twofold -- to
suppress their tendency to produce freckles and, much more importantly, to reduce
their risk of developing skin cancer. The tendency
to freckle easily goes along with the tendency to sun-sensitive skin cancer. Freckles are a warning to people who have them that their skin is highly vulnerable to sunburn and to skin cancer.There are steps that can be taken to prevent them, lessen their appearance, and fade them considerably.
Use sunscreen. Wear a sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. The product should contain one or more of the following active ingredients: Parsol® 1789 (avobenzone), titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Apply the sunscreen every day when you get up, and reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating.
Wear a hat. Get a broad-brimmed hat without mesh or weave that could let light through. A hat is a great way to take shade with you everywhere, and it will keep the sun from directly hitting your face.
Avoid peak sun hours. If you can, don’t go outside between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., as this is when the sun is most intense.
Stay out of tanning beds. These devices expose your skin to lots of pigment-inducing UV radiation, and it’s only inches from your skin. One tanning bed session is equal to a whole day spent at the beach.
Check your medications. Some things you take internally or apply to your skin can cause skin sensitivity. Among the medicines that can cause this are certain antibiotics and birth control pills. Topical products that can cause sun sensitivity include alpha hydroxy acids and benzoyl peroxide. You need to be especially careful in the sun if you use these. Check with your doctor or pharmacist to determine if what you use on your face or take internally would make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Don’t stop taking any medications without your doctor’s orders.
Try fading creams. Look for over-the-counter fading creams containing hydroquinone. Make sure to buy a preparation that comes in a tube or pump so the product is not repeatedly exposed to air and light. This would cause the ingredients to break down and become ineffective. Follow the directions and precautions on the package.
Be consistent. Even a few minutes of unprotected sun exposure each day will add up, such as the rays your skin absorbs from walking to the mailbox and getting in and out of your car. And don’t rely on your car or house windows to shield you from the rays, because most of the pigment-causing UV rays still come through them. You will set yourself back in your skin-lightening endeavor if you aren’t consistent in your efforts.
What causes freckles?
Freckles are flat tan, brown or black spots that appear over time on areas of skin that have been exposed to the sun. Freckles are common among those with lighter skin who sunburn easily. Age spots, which appear later in life, are superficial collections of the skin pigment melanin which occur within the top layer (epidermis) of the skin. Freckles and age spots, classified as symptoms of
photoaging, are commonly found on the face and hands, or any other part of the body that
has been overexposed to the sun.
The basic cause of freckles is special cells in the skin that produce a pigment called melanin. Melanin is what gives skin its color. Sunlight hitting the skin causes the production of more melanin in order to protect the skin layers underneath. If you have melanin that builds up in one place, it will result in freckles. Sunlight also causes freckles already present to become darker. Dark skin that appears during pregnancy or while on birth control pills is called melasma, or the mask of pregnancy. Sun exposure makes these patches and spots even darker. Flat, large spots on the skin in middle age are caused by sun exposure, and are known as age spots, liver spots, or lentigines. Sun exposure is also powerful enough to change certain skin cells into dangerous skin cancers, leading physicians to recommend protective sunscreen and clothing. These actions can also help slow the appearance of both freckles and age spots. For those who already have any brown, discolored lesions, an in-depth consultation should be scheduled with a physician. He or she will perform a careful examination to determine that these spots are not pre-cancerous. This can develop on the skin causing growths that have irregular borders and strange colors such as black, red or pink. Look for spots that don’t heal, have lack of symmetry, or are of a large size. See a dermatologist if you have any spots on your skin that look suspicious.
How do freckles develop?
Freckles are caused by uneven distribution of skin pigment melanin in the skin. Freckles become more prominent when exposed to sunlight because the skin produces extra melanin in sunny conditions. The sun and sun-tanning lights emit ultraviolet (UV) rays. After exposure to sunlight, the outer layer of the skin (the epidermis) thickens and the pigment-producing cells (the melanocytes) in the
skin produce the pigment melanin at an increased rate. After exposure to sunlight,
the outer layer of the skin thickens and the
pigment-producing cells in the skin produce melanin at an increased rate. (This gives some protection against future sun exposure.)
People differ of course a great deal in their reaction to sunlight. To take an extreme example, there is no pigmentation in the skin of an albino because of a defect in melanin metabolism. On the other hand, people with dark complexions are relatively less sensitive to sun exposure than fair-skinned persons. However, persons with dark skin are not entirely resistant to the effects of the sun and they, too, can become sunburned with prolonged exposure. Persons with blonde or red hair are especially susceptible since they tend to be the fairest skinned. Irrespective of skin color, it is the uneven distribution of the melanin pigment in the skin that results in freckling. A freckle is nothing more than an unusually heavy deposit of melanin at one spot in the skin.
Freckles, age spots and pregnancy mask have several things in common. They are formed in sun exposed areas: face, hands, chest and back. These unwelcome brown patches are nothing more than accumulation of skin pigment melanin which is always produced by the skin. The amount of melanin present determines the skin tone of an individual. Extra melanin is produced by the body in response to sun exposure. It absorbs UV rays and does not allow them to penetrate deep into the skin layers as it would be damaging.
first of all boil the kettle and pour the water into a heat resistand bowl or whatever,
then get a towl put it over your head and lean over the bowl so the steam can escape (be careful not to burn yourself) the steam opens up your pores. do this for about 10-15 mins.
Now once your pours are nice and open squeeze lightly and the dirt inside should come out easily after squeezing spash cold water on your face a few times to close up pores so no further dirt can get in and cause more black heads :) Good Luck
