Since December 2011 I have suffered with what I believe to be PIH, Everytime I gained a pimple I got a new red mark. While they are.getting better, they still look very red against my olive complexion. I use a coconut oil moisturiser & exfoliate twice a week with body shop microdermabrasion, I'm getting my make up done for a formal events in June and august, is this enough time for them to fade?

You may want to try incorporating AHA into your skin care routine. It is excellent for fading acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. Dan has an excellent product that is available through the site. Beyond AHA, I say time and perhaps a visit to a dermatologist will help with your skin issues. Good luck and keep us up to date on your progress!! :)
