Hey everyone!

 

My skin seems to have a very difficult time dealing with the marks acne leaves behind. As of today, I don't really break out anymore. But past breakouts have left behind numerous marks, especially on both sides of my cheek. I've had the same dark marks on my cheeks for several months, and they don't seem to be going away. Some of them even feel indented just a bit, which is something new to me. Does anyone have any idea or tips on how to help fade these marks?

 

I currently use retin-a 0.025%, although it doesn't really seem to be helping much in terms of fading marks, something I thought it would be excellent at. I also use aczone in the mornings to help ensure I don't break out as much anymore.

 

Basically, I have all these dark marks I wanna get rid of. Since I deal with active pimples less often now, I figure now is a good time to clean up the scars. Any tips would be appreciated. The marks make me so self-conscious when I go anywhere, and I don't like staring at mirrors because of them.

it might take month or few to fade those i think. u could help a bit with aha, maybe some rich in vitamin oil like rosehip (undiluted with other oils) if u dont break out from it, moisturise but most of all its just to not break out new pimples nd give it some months..

Planning on giving it a couple more months, but many of the same marks have been there for many months. Thanks for the tip!
