Alpha H liquid gold is amazing, but it’s hard to get in the US. There are some online websites you can order it from though, and it’s a great product if you’re not sensitive to AHAs.

There is one thing that it’s cheap and works very well.  It’s sold in your local Wal-Mart or CVS for sure.  It’s “Palmer’s Skin Success Anti dark spot  fade cream”. A tub is like $5 (in comparison with $70 high end cream with the same ingredient. I have skin that tans easily and if I have any acne it leaves a dark spot behind.  So I’ve been using this for years and have excellent results.  It works by  peeling away dark cells much faster than it occurs naturally.  My average post acne dark spot fades away by good 75%-100% in 2 weeks of twice daily application. I have to be careful applying this cream to tan skin because it eats away tan as well,  therefore I apply it all over my face and body for  even lightening.

Mmjernig:  I had good results using an AHA lotion every night to fade dark acne marks (not scars, but purplish areas). but it’s not good if you have sensitive skin so I had to stop. maybe hydroquinone (palmer’s lotion) works for that too, but I haven’t tried it myself. 

now I use a generic retin-a, and it seems to keep these marks at bay.

as for hyperpigmentation (sun spots), that’s a much different story. I’ve read that pretty much the only thing that’ll really take care of it is a combination of lasers + daily use of hydroquinone cream and sunscreen.  I used just the second two and got no results after several months. IDK, it’s possible that may also be because OTC hydroquinone is not going to be as strong as Rx.
