    Maybe the cause of the black spots since you did not state any might be you are having pimples and you just pinched or peeled before it needs to get peeled which leaves your face with black spots or likely it comes naturally. If you have pimples then you don’t have to pinch or peel. Use a clean towel soaked in warm water use it to clean your face with a good medicated or Antiseptic soap. Clean face twice a day. Apply a good cream with vitamin E and vitamin C. Also try natural remedies like lemon mixed with sliced tomato apply on face for 30 minutes. Wash off and repeat everyday.
