Hi. I have had moderate acne on my face for a couple years. I have tried all sorts of solutions and even a couple prescriptions. I am on Proactiv right now with Burt's Bees tea tree oil before the third step of Proactiv, for at least a month and a half, and it didn't seem to help. So after some research I have stopped using an SLS toothpaste and SLS exfoliate. That was a couple days ago and I have noticed (don't want to jinx it too bad!) that my face has improved a bit. My pimples themselves are easy to kill I think, but the left over red spots don't seem to be going anywhere, especially on my jaw line and around my mouth. Is there any way to make these disappear, or should I keep on with my newly effective Proactiv/tea tree regimen and hope things get better?

I've heard that aloe vera gel and emu oil helps to fade red marks but I personally have never tried it before. Red marks generally take awhile to fade.
