SERUM that will help lighten acne marks and hyperpigmentation?

Hi ladies. I'm trying to find a good serum that will help lighten my acne marks and hyperpigmentation. Any recommendations?

 

For reference, I have acne prone, oily and sensitive skin.

Hi friend! :smileyhappy:


Seems like we have the same type of skin! I have tried so many different things to try to fade mine as well.

 

The Murad Post-Acne Spot gel is good- but it was a bit too harsh for my skin. Clinique's Dark Spot Correcter didn't work for me- I used the entire bottle. Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum broke me out in hives because the Vitamin C concentrate is too much for my sensitive skin.

 

What I found that works for me (so far) is Caudalie Vinoperfect Serum. I am 1/4 through the bottle and I think I am seeing results... I will let you know when I finish the bottle!

Unfortunately, no. I live in the Philippines. I buy my Sephora stuff online then have it shipped to my parcel forwarder in California which in turn would send it to me here in the Philippines.

Hi CzaCee I agree with PoesRevy. Murad makes some fantastic products for hyperpigmentation.  The Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel is a great choice since you are dealing with acne scarring and hyperpigmentation.  It needs to be applied in the evening and you will need to wear a sunscreen during the day as it can make your skin photo-sensitive.

The first thing that I thought of was a product by Murad called Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel...

 

I've used Philosophy Help Me in the past (also not a serum) , it helped. I have similar skin issues and I had to build up to using it daily just to ensure there would not be any irritation.

 

Do you live near a Sephora where you could get samples to try?
