Men: What do you use at night to fade red scars?

Any good products out there that I can use every night before I go to bed to help prevent acne and also reduce wrinkles and red spots + acne scars?

I'm interested in prescription products too like retinoids...

normally whatever works on women will also work on men.. there is no need to make the females on this forum hesitant before posting a possibly helpful reply.

i use bio oil and it works pretty well.

Klaron NULLIFIES red acne lesions. (If you get a red zit, it will NOT be red the morning after you put the klaron on...try this stuff it's awesome).

To get rid of red-marks after acne (hyperpigmentation) I have used:

-11% Glycolic Acid Toners (such as AquaGlycolic)....takes a few days/weeks to work

-Aveeno Ultra-Calming Moisturizer (relieves redness)

-AVOID THE SUN & BRIGHT LIGHTS AT ALL COSTS! (UV makes the marks more red)

wait a minute! I know sunlight makes red marks darker, but this is the first time I heard of bright lights making red marks worse. That has to be incorrect...

Apple Cider Vinegar diluted with water 50/50 for the first week or so. Then you can lower the percentage of water when the skin has accustomed to ACV. It smells like shite, but it works for me!

From what I understand, there are UV rays in certain lights (halogen is one). It's usually a pretty low level (and domestic manufacturers are required to put some sort of UV screen or something to block it out), but nonetheless is there, when you're sitting at work or in class. I also heard that computer monitors give off the rays too. Not sure how true that one is. That's why it's important to have an SPF on, even if you're just going to work and only exposed to the sun while commuting.
