Red/brown marks appearing

Recommended Posts

I've been getting red and brown marks, mostly brown marks, appearing on my left cheek out of nowhere. Most of these marks were never acne, they're just random spots of discoloration.. I have no active acne aside from a few small whiteheads that are unnoticeable unless very close but these spots are extremely annoying.

I'm currently on the water only regimen and it's been great. I haven't had any type of inflamed or cystic acne since starting it and the only noticeable blemishes on my face are these spots and they almost all reside on my left cheek and there are a few on my right side but they aren't noticeable. Other than that I'm almost completely clear.

I was thinking maybe its sun exposure but I haven't even been out in the sun a serious amount lately. The skin isn't dry or oily in that area either. They are just randomly scattered brown spots and I've never had this dense of a coverage of any kind of acne, marks or spots on my skin ever, so it really hurts to see them. I have a feeling they will fade, as I've seen similar spots in the past, just not as many but I was wondering if anyone had an idea what it could be from so I could avoid them in the future.
