Acne Scars?

Hi, I know that you can't get rid of acne scars, but is there something to help lighten them? I have quite a few in my t-zone, and I would like to lighten them. Is there a cream or face wash that I could use?


Thanks much!

Re: Acne Scars?

If you still have acne, you should stay with gentle formulas because the ingredients used to lighten dark spots can be irritating. I recommend using a daily wash with glycolic acid, spot-treating with salicylic acid, and using a brightening mask weekly (Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial is great).

a really cheap option is neosporin every night. trust me it has helped me so much

Re: Acne Scars?

For post acne marks, please take a look at a very detailed post in the below thread where I broke down many of the common used ingredients in fading treatments and brighteners used on the market today. This will help you gauge the effectiveness of products better and determine what you need for your skin:

The Dr. Jart V7 vitalaser 2.1 would be a good product for you to research! Hope this helps!Smiley Happy

Re: Acne Scars?

@lovebaking123, I'm on the same boat as you! I've recently been introduced to the DiorSnow skincare line, which specifically targets lightening discoloration. It's quite pricey, but it has had wonderful reviews! Has anyone tried this line?


@dianabt the Caudalie serum sounds promising! thanks for sharing Smiley Happy

Re: Acne Scars?

Hi lovebaking123, 


I really like the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum which has done wonders to help fade away discoloration on my skin>

And my new favorite serum is the Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu which is 30x more brightening than vitamin c. Make sure you follow up with an oil free SPF on top of your skin when using these serums!
