I know sun makes them worse, and I avoid the sun religiously, but I recently got a job at a grocery store in the prepared foods department, where I have to spend a bit of time in front of a big hot oven everyday. The temperature can get pretty warm and you definitely sweat a bit, but my question is can plain old heat from ovens darken your hyperpigmentation? And if so is there anything I could wear to prevent this? Thanks!

I dont think heat from a oven would cause it to be any better of worse. What heat does if draws the blood to the skin.
When you wash your hands or have a hot shower you notice your skin is red. But as soon as your skin cools down it
returns back to its natural colour.

It would be the same as heat from an oven drawing blood to your face/skin. Once you cool down
everything is back to normal.

I wouldn't avoid the sun religiously. Just protect the areas you need to. The sun is great Vit D and your missing out.

Accutane.......  It worked

Accutane made me depressed so I stopped taking it.

Now I'm depressed cause my acne came back. "

I think heat just expands the pores, which is a good thing. Marks will remain unaffected
