Option 1: Use my Porcelana Skin Fade cream for a week. It contains 2% hydroquinone! however.. it has mineral oil.... So I don't wanna cause breakouts,.. I already have like 3 going on
Option 2: continue using Tretinoin Cream (my 11th week) However... it makes me flaky and my makeup looks awful

Hydroquinone doesn't really do much for Red marks, mainly sun exposed brown marks.
You're looking for something scrubby, and penetrates enough to speed up the wound healing process.
The downer, Red marks tend to stay on the skin for a decently long time.. Depending on the treatment.
I've had my red marks since 9th grade, which is now, 4-5 years. But during this time i continued to get breakouts which would cause new marks. I really didn't have a skin treatment going on.
This is what i recommend:
1. DermaRoller .5 - 1.5 mm Needle ( Needles that penetrate the skin, will cause bleeding, but works in the long run ) I did this for 4-5 months with great results.
2. I mixed Baking soda, Water, Lemon Juice, Sacylic acid (2.5%) , Little bit of Vitamin E Petroleum Jelly, all in one mix. Scrub on face..
Most important step in the process of defeating Acne, KNOW THE ROOT CAUSE OF YOUR SPECIFIC PROBLEM.

Mineral oil has a 0 comedogenic rating so you don't need to worry about it clogging your skin. However a few ingredients in Porcelana are rated 3+ on the comedogenic scale:
Water , Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum) , Glyceryl Stearate , Cetearyl Alcohol , Isopropyl Palmitate , PEG 100 Stearate , Propylene Glycol , Emulsifying Wax , Stearic Acid , Hydroxyethylcellulose , Avocado (Persea Gratissima) Oil Unsaponifiables , Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) , Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C) , Retinyl Acetate (Vitamin A) , Disodium EDTA , Sodium Metabisulfite , Citric Acid , BHT , Methylparaben , Propylparaben , Diazolidinyl Urea , Fragrance
You can also just use lemon juice. Sounds dorky, but I actually find it works quite well for marks if used regularly.
