Keep skin moisturized to boost cell turnover:

In addition to addressing the pigment issues, a good product will have moisturizing agents like glycerin or hyaluronic acid that can be more beneficial to boost cell turnover.

Keep hands off pimples and blackheads:

As tempting as it may be to scratch a pimple  or  squeeze a stubborn blackhead, remember never ever  pop your pimples.

Scratching and picking at a spot will only increase the inflammation that’s responsible for skin discoloration and causes acne scars.

Protect your skin from the sun:

The most effective way to prevent sun-induced discoloration is to always  apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or greater, every day, even on cloudy or cool days.

UV rays just send the pigment into overdrive, turning dark spots darker. You must wear sunblock daily on exposed areas to prevent hyperpigmentation.
