In brief: You have PIH

It sounds like you have post-inflammatory hyper -pigmentation.
Try to minimize any inflammation such as pimples. Gentle cleansing, use of benzoyl peroxide products, plenty of sleep and a good diet and exercise will help you keep pimples under control. If you get one, do not squeeze it! you might want to consult a dermatologist for help in control and fading these spots.
