For masking, hyperpigmentation can be treated either by lightening the skin or by methods that increase skin cell turnover to bring the skin to the surface, causing it to peel off.
The first rule for pigmentation is patience. It will take a while for this sun damage to arrive, and it will take you a while to fix it. Most products take at least four weeks to see the results.
The second rule is hard work. It makes no sense to buy and use a large amount of skin care products and get professional treatment if you don't wear sunscreen every day and thoroughly protect your face from the sun when you go outdoors. The pigmentation is always just below the surface, like an animal, waiting for the chance to come back. Do not allow it.
