The only thing that's actually worked on me is from PCA Skin care. I don't want to sound like an infomercial, but they've faded quite a bit since using their A&C Synergy and Pigment Gel. My dermatologist recommended it since the other derm in her office is the cso of the company.

I use the Murad acne scar or spot remover. It really helps with regular use. Even with sun spots or marks from acne, like I have.

Hellos!

 

An exfoliator of sorts helps a lot with scarring (my forehead is covered because I'm a picker).

 

I recommend the following:

This one smells like pumpkin pie and uses pumpkin enzymes, aluminum oxide crystals, and alpha hydroxy acid to smooth and resurface the skin.

So far, I've loved the entire line of s&g products for my facial woes. This had gentle beads with salicylic acid to help exfoliate and keep breakouts in check.

Again, with s&g, this is awesome. It's more like a mask. It's creamy and feels great on the skin. So far, has helped with my breakouts and scarring.

 

And lastly,

Fresh is an awesome line of natural products. It uses fruit and sugar to brighten and polish the skin. It's great for all skin types and is very gentle.

 

 I also like the Fresh Soy Face Exfoliant as well. Good old traditional grainy wonderfulness that works as natural microdermabrasion. A quarter sized dollop is all you need and the tube lasts forever.
