Best Tropical Cream for Hyperpigmentation caused by Acne?

What's the best over the counter product for Hyperpigmentation which left due to Acne.

My dermatologist just tells me it will fade but will take time... but I want to do something to at least help the process go even faster.

Will appreciate any input.

Thanks in Advance

I use Polysporin. It helps fade faster. You can also use Tea Tree Oil

I use Polysporin - the Original Cream - never the ointment - only this one type. Note though that what works for one person will not work for another - skin type, allergies, reason for acne etc.

Interesting and you just apply it over the mark and you have seen it help with the Hyper-pigmentation?

It's one thing applying it to a fresh pimple that's been pop where the likelihood of leaving behind a pigmentation is high, but what about ones that are done and closed?

Thanks in advance.

In my case I am now able to use the Polysporin cream regardless of the stage of the pimple - during or afterwards.

But everyone has different skin - and reasons for the breakouts. Skin type, hormonal acne, allergy to a particular food or chemical (laundry detergent on pillow slips is a big one as are telephones that are pressed against the cheek).

I know other people that have had great results with the Polysporin cream and others who haven't. It is worth a shot but it does take some time. But if it does not work on your face there are other uses for the cream. I just wouldn't use the ointment.

I hope that you are able to find something that works for your skin at this particular time. Always remember that as the years pass and your skin changes that you may need to change products - based on your skin type and the continuous reformulation and/or discontinuation of the products that you do use.

lol i was going to say this.

To OP, if you are willing to pay a little more, you can get Dark Spot Corrector by Khiels or similar higher end brands.
