I know exactly how you feel, I have had bad acne since 15 and I am now 22. It has taken me awhile but between getting older and hormones balancing, birth control, and a skin routine that works for me I have finally overcome most of my skin problems and my red marks are almost gone!! Your skin looks very similar to how mine used to about 2 years ago.

honestly getting rid of active acne is only half the battle, because you still have the red marks to deal with. I know its frustrating, but red marks take patience, get a good routine and stick with it for at least 6 months and thats when you will suddenly notice its not nearly as bad as it used to be. If you want real results you can always do peels, but my best advice is to see a derm and get their opinion. I cannot afford one, but I after a year of good skin care I have seen a much better side of my skin. So use skin calming moisturizers, use sunscreen, do not over wash your face and drink water.

You can always try a protein mask if $$ is an issue because I got good results from that. mix egg whites and a teeny tiny bit of lemon juice and wisk it (you can use a fork) until it gets a little frothy and then apply to your face for 10 min. and wash off, then moisturize well. You can do this once a day if you want, I noticed a slight improvement just after a week. But again nothing is magic and it will require patience.

They look like red marks, not scars.

You could try Skin Biology Emu Oil, and possibly Retin-A.
