I wanted to tell you about a great product to help fade your acne scars and not just mask them with makeup.  Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is a highly concentrated oil-free serum that improves the appearance of dark spots and promotes even skin tone.  Perfect for all skin types, this satiny complex offers remarkable results, helping to correct dark spots, acne marks and scars.  Naturally powerful Viniferine, olive squalene, mint, caraway and galbanum work to counter stretch marks, scars, and damage while bolstering collagen and elastin, for glowing results.  You can read more about it at:

I hope this helps you.  🙂

Sorry! I forgot the last thing! I also had dark circles, but once i started using Eye Hope that really changed. You don't want to use much (like half a pump and my under-eyes are completely covered. I ran out and couldn't get to a store for about a week. I didn't realize the amaze-i-ness of this product until I was with out. It really does an incredible job.

Hi! I had used to have slight scaring and acne, but it dissipated after I started using the makeup optional kit from Philosophy. They've recently changed the system since I began using it years ago, but the micro delivery system that comes with it is AMAZING! My skin is finally fully exfoliated but not destroyed as it was with other exfoliating systems. The lotion they provided was also INCREDIBLE! Unfortunately it was recently discontinued (something similar replaced it but I haven't tried it yet.) The face wash from Philosophy honestly changed my view of what face cleanser was. I always thought I had oily skin until I tried Purity. It balanced out my skin, which is why i started using the lotion which continued the balancing. I was amazed since I'd always thought I didn't need to use lotion since my skin was so oily. One thing that I love about Sephora is the try it before you buy it option they offer. If you are able, go into the store and ask for samples of Purity and a the Philosophy facial lotion that has salicylic acid in it. Good luck! The only other thing that also helped my skin was drinking more water. I know it's cliche but it really helped.

I would consider investing in a skin care regime. Proper, cleansing, toning with exfoliator, and moisturizer can drastically reduce/control oil production, help with not trapping dirt under your makeup and keep your pores clear.  Ideally you want to not get any more scars and a nutrient-rich skincare system and hydration will help heal new/red scars.
