i wish i knew what i could recommend for you but first off stop using BP or you will get darker.. maybe if you stop your normal skin will come back.. it will probably take a month as the cell turnover cycle is completed in 1 month.

how do you know this will work?

because i've had to deal with hyperpigmentation and this is what they gave me and it worked lol. i mean, it's not an over night fix, but it speeds it along.

Maybe once you stop using the BP, exfoliate gently every night, the cells will come back lighter? That's what I would hope for. Otherwise, I know you can do something with a lemon juice formula that can lighten skin after exfoliation, but obviously be careful with that, the citrus on your skin and around your eyes and such. I'm not sure of the actual ingredients, but it might be something to look into if nothing else works.

um, i believe that's it's primary use. but, i think it's carcinogenic, so, if that's something that worries you, i wouldn't recommend it. but, my derm gave it to me after i experienced some hyperpigmentation and it worked very well.
