What Would Be Best For My Brown Marks??

Hi, i'm new to this board and i have mild acne. I don't get new pimples alot(maybe 2 or 3 in a week) but my main problems is the dark brown marks left by old one.

I'm asian and i have fairly dark skin so my old pimples leave a brown makr there. They usually dont' dissapear for at least 1 or 2 months.

I already have a regimen im going through and it seems to be helping a bit:




Afternoon after football practice:


Vinegar Method



tape Method


Now i want to add either vita-k for blotchy skin or a 30% Glycolic peel to my regimen. If i do ill prolly do the vita-k in the morning or do the peel at night and move the tape method to the afternoon with the vinegar method.

So what would you guys recommend for me to get? Vita-K or 30% Glycolic Acid for my dark brown marks?

vita-k won't work for brown marks, only reddish ones.

Both glycolic and lactic acids are better choices.

If you're brave enough, you may consider TCA.
