Acne is Gone but I Still Have Dark Spots? Help!

Thanks to Rodan + Fields for sponsoring this post.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’ve struggled with breakouts and cystic acne for so long, I have forgotten exactly when it started.  After countless years and thousands of dollars I have found a system and routine with products that work for my skin (of course this changes from time to time dependent on life factors, weather, etc.).  And my cystic acne finally subsided!  But wait… Why does it look like I still have a face full of acne? These spots are flat!  So, it’s not an active breakout.  What is this discoloration?  Why does it look like I am still struggling with acne when I’m not? WHAT ARE THESE SPOTS?!
