I doubt it. You're better off using salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide containing products (just don't let benzoyl peroxide near anything you don't want bleached, like your favorite shirt, and use a sunscreen with it). However many products there are for dark spots, I think most of them don't really work. Talk to a dermatologist if you can't get your skin under control with over-the-counter products.
Hi and welcome. with what you mention it would be better to use some OTC medication like the Proactive line. If your having a serious acne problem do see your dermatoligist as anonymouse 88 advises. They also sell a dark spot fader at some of the better dept stores like Neiman Marcus. If your at this store you might want to talk to some of the beauty advisors in the skin care dept as make some really great products like Sisley, Natura Bisse, Revive and La Mer. These are pretty expensive but you can get a really great skin product by Kate and is less money. Its important to start with skin care young to avoid wrinkles in the future.
