Dear P,

You can try a vitamin E cream like Vitaforce or Natrodale. Please do not use an oil-based product, it is too fatty to use on your face. If this doesn't help, ask your doctor to prescribe something like RetinA. Laser therapy is also very effective and safe. Ask at your nearest beauty salon for details. Make sure that you always use a sunscreen when outside, otherwise the marks will get darker.
Most important...wear sunscreen!!!!!!
Keep well
