Holistically Clearing Whiteheads and Hyper-pigmentation?

Recommended Posts

So my acne is pretty mild (just whiteheads on my forehead, cheeks, and around the mouth/chin area), but it looks so much worse than it is because I have a lot of hyper-pigmentation. I've tried lavender oil and it did seem to help some areas of hyper-pigmentation but otherwise it just irritated my baby sensitive skin and caused some cysts. I've used some diluted lemon juice twice now and have not seen much improvement in anything but nothing has gotten worse either (should I keep trying with that?)

Are there any other ways to holistically rid my skin of hyper-pigmentation (I'd be fine with whiteheads if they weren't accompanied by this)? Has anyone tried Bio-Oil for this?

Thanks for reading!

For red marks I use olive oil. Not only does it make my skin soft and smooth, but it really gets rid of my red marks. I apply it to my face at night and sometimes mix in a couple drops into my morning moisturizer.
