Post Skin Problem

Hello, this is my first post in this forum and I am very impressed with tips offered on this forum

I am High School graduate at 18 years of age, and looking for some healthy tips.

I have passed the Acne part but since the dissappearence of ACNE, my skin tone is getting very dark. Specially my face, the rest of my body is light colored since my early years but my face color is getting darker for the past year or so.

People have told to me to drink alot of water which I have been doing about 15-20 glasses of water per day.

I have been working out at a local gym for the past month, specially runnining about 2 miles every day, and heating healthy foods, not too much spicy food.

But the problem is getting bigger and bigger everyday.

I will appreciate some healthy tips.

BTW- I was originally born in Pakistan, and came to USA 8 years ago, but I have always been a like skinned person. I usually don't go out under the sun, and I don't use any fancy medications.

So please I would appreciate any help possible.

If your skin is getting dark in 'patches', it could be Melasma. You might consider seeking the advice of a dermatologist to rule out that particular skin disease. It is easily treated with prescription medications/ointments.
