I've been using differin gel, along with benzoyl peroxide cream (10%), and washing my face twice a day with benzoyl peroxide exfoliator (8%) for over a year now. The results have been wild, in a good way, 98% of my acne and hyper pigmentation have cleared up, however, I now have another problem. All the medication to my face has made my skin real sensitive to the sun. I can't walk out in the sun for more then 20 mins without getting dark spots. Especially in the summer, my whole face becomes a shade darker. I use spf 70, but It doesn't really seem effective. What should I do?? Can I stop taking differin, should I cut out some of the benzoyl peroxide? Also because I apply my medication to everywhere except my nose it's a lot lighter then the rest of my face. I fr need help. 

what can I do to get my face back to its original tone?
