facial skin discoloration

I have dark discoloration under eyes and discoloration on cheek bone area and brown spots on face.  What can I do?

Not all sun damage related I don't think.

Hi

This may be freckles or moles. The discolorations may be a skin reaction secondary to cream and lotions applied on the face. This may be an allergic reaction. I would suggest that if you have been using certain lotions and creams on the face, then you would have to stop doing so unless this has been prescribed by your physician. Freckles and moles may be due to prolonged sun exposure. Applying sunblock cream on the area may also help reduce the discoloration.

Have you been using some new products lately?
