Acne almost gone but the marks seem to stay??

MY skin FEELS good, and it looks OKay, but looking closely you can see the dead -old places where the acne used to be. it's not really red spots - just kinda brownish and tiny dots.. how do you get rid of these?

also, can I use BP + AHA as moisterizer or is it better to use regular kind?

I think this is normal, I've been using ACV and now im clear I have a few red marks which are slowly starting to fade away :)

Just give them time... Thats my advice, most of mine are just about gone now.

Dont do anything to them! Your skin is perfect, if I had skin like that, I would consider myself clear. Putting any harsh chemicals on that will only make it worse, stay away from BD, Im not sure if AHA is also irritating. So my advice is to wait it out, leave them alone. If youre really desperate to get rid of them which you definately shouldnt be, I suggest you try some of these.

Lemon juice

Tea tree oil (can be irritating, just one drop)

Yogurt (rub in, leave on until dry, wash off)

Honey (leave on for as long as you can, wash off)

ACV

aspirin face mask

also if you can, go to a sauna it will help.

baking soda

Thanks for the feedback.

I guess it is just irritating to think you have clear skin yet those old cells from acne are there to remind you that your skin is not totally clear.

why is sauna good? I go 3 times a week at the gym usually. Wet sauna or dry?

The wet ones are better,i suppose.

It opens pores and the dirt is pushed/pulled out. Also more blood and oxygen are brought to the skin surface since the capillaries expand. One more I can think of right now is that the sauna apparently speeds up the skin regeneration cycle, so youll have fewer dead skin cells hanging out on your skin.
