How can I get rid of scars on my face from acne?

The good news is I have solved my acne problem and am not getting any new acne, but I have red marks on my face from when I used to have it. This is extremely frustrating. Is the acne medication I used to get red of the acne effective for this? What should I do about these redish marks, or “scars”?

    When you pop them you get scars. But there are treatments you can use like Mederma and I also highly recommend the Proactive Solution it has a cleanser (to treat and prevent), and a healing toner and moisturizer. Here are the sites for both.

    man, i have the sammmme problem right now. I’ve been breaking out like crazy for two months. But now it’s starting to get back to the great skin i used to have but the marks are still there. Try lemon and put it on your face for 15mins and wash it off. It’s a natural bleacher and should get your skin back to it’s normal color.And or use a great toner for your skin.

    Acne scarring is perhaps worse than the acne itself.

    My acne scars weren’t horrible. They probably weren’t even that noticeable after I put on my foundation. However, I certainly noticed them and that was all it took to bother ME.

    If you’ve got acne scars, you may feel a bit helpless. But you don’t have to because there are alternatives to getting rid of acne scars. And you CAN do something about it.

    So what do you do about it? Well, there is totally a solution … actually there are many.

    These are NATURAL treatments.

    Now, just because you hear the word “natural”, I don’t want you to shake your head and think you need to just buy some over the counter miracle cream. These remedies WORK! And you’ll find that by consistently using them, your acne scars WILL fade just like mine did.

    So without further ado, here are my favorite natural acne scar solutions:

    Vitamin E
    Don’t underestimate the power of this healing lotion. You can get it at any drugstore in topical form. I have a HUGE bottle of it under my sink :) . Vitamin E naturally heals scars by moisterizing the damaged skin. Use it everyday to fade away acne scars.

    Cocoa Butter
    This one should be used carefully. If your acne is not already under control, cocoa butter does pose the threat of additional breakouts. However, if you’re using the 3 Day Cure technique and your skin is finally clear, this is a powerful healing tool. Cocoa Butter will soften skin, lighten the scars and make them fade into nothing. I love this one. By the way, Cocoa Butter also works great on fading stretch marks.

    Honey
    Okay, this is totally gonna change your life! Honey works overtime on acne & acne scars. Yes, Honey! When I first learned about this natural remedy, I was pretty bewildered. The sound of it alone is confusing. Honey is a sticky, sugary substance. How can it possibly clear up skin?

    Honey kills bacteria while simultaneously lessens the red look of irritated skin. The acidity in the honey evens out your skin tone, shrinks current pimples and will give your skin a softer feel. Listen, I know you may be skeptical of this solution. I was at first, then I tried it. This natural acne scar remedy works great.

    Lemon
    Lemon will help clear up acne as well as fade acne scars. Plus your face will smell like a freshly shined harwood floor, so that’s a plus ;)

    The acidity in the juice will lighten the redness of the scars and balance your skin’s pH levels to prevent future breakouts. Give it a shot.

    You can find a lot of other natural acne treatments and acne scar treatments through the source link below.

    Cheers!
