Is This A Scar Or A Red/dark Mark And What To Do About It!

Hey guys,

So I've had a bad case of acne every since college. It's very strange because I've never gotten any sort of acne until then. I think the acne may be due to stress. Anyways, I am a 21 year old asian male and I've made the mistake of popping all my pimples.

Whenever I pop them, I get scars or red marks such as the one in the picture. I'm not sure if it's a scar or red mark...or both.


Anyways I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions in getting rid of these types of marks?

My original plan was to mix honey, oatmeal, and lemon juice and put it on my face every night. Then I would either use this product: http://beautymakeupcare.com/neutrogena-healthy-skin-enhancer-medium-to-olive-60-1-ounce.html or this product: http://www.amazon.com/Nicel-Night-Renew-Cream-Oz/dp/B005TU2GK8 as moisturizing agents.

However, I'm not sure if thats the best way. I was also considering using just this: http://www.amazon.com/Manuka-Honey-Oil-Skin-Cream/dp/B001DBC8K0/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Any opinions? I appreciate the help in advance!

Retin-a works. But there might be good natural remedy as well.

Try a natural approach. Like fresh aloe Vera gel from the plant, organic honey mask. Etc. Look up more natural remedies so you can figure out what is easiest to obtain. Goodluck! It should go away pretty fast, since it is small.
