I tried using Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar last week and broke out like I haven't broken out in months. This definitely has steered me away from using ACV at all, regardless of how much it is diluted. I'm very upset because I was looking forward to the positive aspects of using the ACV such as taking care of hyperpigmentation and improvement of overall skintone. I've heard that you have to get through the intial breakout, but I'm very afraid I will only end up with more red marks. Maybe I should dilute it even more? Or should I just give up on ACV entirely?
ABR:

Morning:
Gently buff jojoba oil on dry skin to exfoliate
Acne.org cleanser
2 pumps Acne.org BP
Dan's moisturizer + jojoba
50 mg Zinc, Selenium, Multi-Vit, Vit E, Fish Oil
LOTS of green tea and water

Night:
Acne.org cleanser
Pat jojoba on before BP
2 pumps Acne.org BP
AHA+
Vasoline under eyes (perfect moisturizer!)

I use Derma E Scar Gel. It seems to be doing a pretty good Job. But know this everyone is different.

The scotch tape method costs like nothing and works wonders!! Search for it on this site. Afterwards, I just wipe my face down-apply the Aveda exfoliant toner-and moisterize (at night)
finally free!

I read the article but don't know where to start. I'm a fifteen year old guy and red marks / dark spots are ruining my social life. It sucks. I've had them for about 9 months. I have about 90% of active acne and breakouts under control and they've subsided. Now I'm left with dark spots on both of my cheeks, and some lighter but still obviously discolored marks on my jawline.

What safe things can I try as growing teen to reduce the dark spots? I just don't want to do anything that will WORSEN my marks/spots, so I'm willing to try anything as long as it won't possibly make my condition worse.

PS: I did see a dermatologist. He was very vague and didn't seem that helpful. He basically put me on Epiduo and Dorox pills to fight breakouts and active acne but the main thing I was hoping he would help me with was the scars. But he said the scars could not be addressed for a few years but he didn't really say why. My only guess would be because my face is still growing since I'm still maturing so is the derm right,or can I do something now? I am really suffering self esteem and social wise due to these scars so I REALLY would like to take care of them now.

Please, any responses. I'd really appreciate some knowledgeable help.

The prices make it clear! Preventing acne is better than having acne scars. Economically and pshycologically!

Sorry, but the article was pointless. Most of the stuff, we knew already!

No it doesn't, not in my opinion at least. BP actually makes marks more red and prominent. I only started using the AHA but haven't seen any effects yet.

Guys I struggled with red spots for 2 years! Ugh, I tried everything I could get my little hands on and I'm telling you nothing worked like Lemon juice. Don't buy that fake lemon juice crap that comes in a bottle, get actual lemons and squeeze them in a little cup and every night after washing your face take a Q-tip, dip it in the lemon juice and rub it all over your face. It will sting at first but your skin gets used to it in about a week, I really wouldn't recommend watering it down unless you have SUPER sensitive skin, otherwise just put up with the stinging and redness (which goes away pretty quick) then moisturize. Lemon reduced the red marks about 80% in about 2 months, Hydroquinone and retinol creams had barely done anything in the 6 months that I had used them. The lemon juice had even worked faster than the 3 sensi peels I had. Trust me you won't regret it! I still use lemon juice and it's still lightening some pigmentation, I have also added a 30% glycolic acid peel (a home kit I ordered) which I use once a week. I would also highly recommend Glycolic acid, that stuffs pretty amazing too. At first it seems like it makes your skin look worse for like 3 days and then MY GOD you start to see the results and I've only done 2! Anyway this is what has worked the best for me guys, hope this helps! =)

I do NOT recommend using steroids for acne. I was just recently on prednisone. I had almost no acne before starting it, and while on it, I suffered from the worst break-outs ever! I'm still trying to get rid of it all. Plus, if you look up prednisone, one of the side effects is acne...so I'm not sure why anyone would use steroids to treat it.
