Acne scaring advice?

Hi everyone! Brand new here. I really struggled with acne around my chin this summer. I started using CLINIQUE Acne Solutions™ Clinical Clearing Gel 1 oz/ 30 mL twice daily and a charcoal mask from Mac (Reset & Revive) three times a week - both of which have helped considerably. I also use Clinique's 3-Step system to wash/tone/moisturize. 


Unfortunately, I'm left with a bunch of red spots from scaring. Any advice on what I could add to my routine to help? I'm interested in The Ordinary, but I'm not exactly sure where to start with their products. Thanks!

Depending on what the rest of your routine is, @smmc1223, I'd look at a vitamin C (ascorbic acid) serum if your scars are discolorations or an AHA (lactic or glycolic acid) serum if you're scars are more textural.

Thank you! I’ll look into those!
