Sun avoidance: It sounds liek you have sun spots. Sun avoidance is important and you may have melasma.

It really depends on: the cause of the hyperpigmentation. If this is melasma there is no cure, but sun avoidance and lightening agents will help. Also you can see dermatologist for peels or lasers. Other causes of pigmentation have other treatment options. See dermatologist for diagnosis
