So, I started Accutane a few weeks ago and I'm already amazed by the results. I don't have that many actual pimples anymore, just a lot of hyperpigmentation, which I'm fine with. I made a post before Christmas about how bad my face was looking and it's turned around a lot. 

Anyways, any advice for the hyperpigmentation? I don't want to use anything that irritates my skin at all since any bit of irritation causes me to break out. Thanks in advanced.

There's no magic fix for hyperpigmentation unfortunately. The only thing you can do is give it time. Especially on Accutane.

I have read that azelaic acid (skinoren) can be good for lightening skin, but it can also cause discolouration of the skin.

Have you ever looked at a product called 'genius nightly exfoliating pads' from Arbonne that's what I use (personally on my acne brown spots) and it's fading them all slowly but surely. I could send you a whole file on it if you would like
