The best remady for any marks on face is aloevera gel. You will be amazed with the results. Just try it and the best part is, It won't cause any problem on skin.

Oh wow, I'm so so sorry to hear your story.

That's a very powerful glycolic acid you got there, so essentially you burnt your skin.

If after 2 years you still haven't seen significant improvements, then I think you need to look at more aggressive treatments. Look for skin resurfacing treatments that can help heal your skin from the deeper layers of your skin to resurface new, healthy, not-stained skin again.

Good luck!
