Aries,

A good and effective idea would be a product containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) such as Neostrata's range of products (e.g their pigment lightening cream). Ask at you pharmacy to order it for you - Very few pharmacies stock it, so they'll probably have to order. They can also recommend something similar.
A vitamin E containing product such as a tissue oil can also be used or combined with the AHA containing product. Treatment need to be continued over an extended period of time (6 Months +) for optimal results.
