Neither aloe vera nor sun will do a damn thing to help, at least in my experience. If your condition isn't that bad to begin with I'd just wait until it goes away.

They will go away in a couple of months. You will notice them fading until then. There's no magic cure for scars without going the painful expensive surgical/peel route, but there are things you can do to facilitate their exit from your life. The most important thing is to make sure you use adequate sun screen. SPF 40 whatever you have, put it on before you leave the house and every 2 hours after that. Remember just because its cloudy doesnt mean there are no UV rays! Use sunscreen every time you are outside. UV rays destroy collagen. Collagen is what helps to repair your skin from acne/scars etc.. Good luck!
