I don't have brown skin so I can't help you with that, but if you are looking for an alternative to hydroquinone, you can try kojic acid. It's used in many lightening / evening-out serums. It's best to only use it a night, though, because it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun...but not as bad as hq.
Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials... (although I have been slacking lately)
