So I've got red & dark scars left from acne.

Currently I'm on Tetralysal, it's been great and keeps me free from major break outs

The best way to reduce it for best results that I know of is to simply sleep alot, drink water and try to get some sun on my face for a few hours a day.

BUT! Because of my lifestyle and job, it's difficult doing these simple things.

So I've tried a few alternate treatments with oat cleansers, baking soda & apple cider vinegar and even honey for a while, didn't notice any significant results but perhaps I wasn't doing it long enough.

So, does anyone know any other ways of dealing with this?

Yeah, like mentioned, 10% glycolic acid lotion can be found in Alpha Hydrox products or Dans AHA+.

It helps alot.

I don't think AHA would be a good idea in this case. He says that he likes to get a couple of hours of sun exposure a day (and I'm assuming that's without sunscreen). In this case, all acids (possibly even the vinegar she's using) are not a good idea.

OP if you're willing to severely limit sun exposure or wear a strong sunscreen, you'll have a lot more options.
