Every time a pimple goes away for me, Im left with hyperpigmentation. Their not deep scars at all, their smooth. But very red & noticeable. How can i get rid of them? My complexion would look soo much better without all of this redness! Also, how can i prevent it from happening? I dont pick at my face.

I have the same problem im very pale and even though I never pick my spots they leave a red mark and on my pale skin it looks even worse. Theres nothing you can do to stop it happening all you can do is use a chemical exfoliator like an AHA to speed up how quickly they go.

Use SPF to prevent the hyperpigmentation from getting worse, and keep out of the sun. Time is the only tried and true method, they will have to fade on their own. And they will, as long as you stay out of the sun.
