Hi guys,

First post on here, but been lurking for a while...

My issue is red/dark marks.

Just a few things I already do
1. I don't get much sun exposure and do wear SPF.
2. I take Omega-3, Vitamin C, Zinc, heard they are all good for scarring/inflammation
3. I have started using aloe vera gel at night.
4. I use glycolic acid toner 5%
5. I use hydraluronic serum day and night
6. I have ordered rosehip oil also; will only use this at night I think.
7. I will be starting weekly lactic acid at home peels (30%).
8. Have order ACV although no idea how I am going to stick this into my routine.
9. I stopped using BP 3 months ago.

My questions are

a) Should I start using a TCA peel in a few months? Where can I buy a 12.5% one in the UK?
b) Or should I go down the dermarolling route? Or is that better for wrinkles/deep scarring?
c) Will time actually make a difference?
d) Any other options?

These photos have just made me really depressed and I hate wearing make-up, I just want clear skin...
