Acne Spots.. How To Treat? (Pics Included)

2 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. :)

So as of lately, my skin's been getting better.. slowly but surely. I suffer from inflammatory acne, and I have quite a few red spots and marks on my face left from it. Yes.. I am a picker, which I know definitely does not help and I'm trying really hard to stop.

Anyways, I was wondering what products can be used to treat them? They don't go inwards into my face at all, whenever I feel my face it's smooth. And preferably products that are on the cheaper side.. we are low on money as of late!

Thanks!
