hi all,

new here from Syd Aus.

i've read through a lot of the topics here but didn't come across questions about the acne marks.

just want to know if BP actually helps get rid of the dark marks the acne leaves.

i've read that it helps rid the acne but i'm also concern about the the dark marks.

this might be a silly question, sorry if i waste eveyone's time..

than you

Hi! I'm a newbie too!

I recently read that salicylic acid will help, perhaps a bit more than BP, because it increases cell turnover rates. I'm not sure how accurate that is, and I'm not going to swear by it (I'm a chemical engineering major, so without evidence I put no bets down). Anyway, maybe look into that a bit.

No, I may be wrong, but I am almost certain that it keeps the red/dark marks that way. Once they are fully scars, you can use scar treatments or AHA.
