Scars or hyperpigmentation? Treatment advice?

Recommended Posts

For the past nine months I've been very anxious and started picking at my skin badly. I've always got a few spots here and there, but because I picked at them I always made them worse than they actually were. Recently in the past two months I've started with a good skincare routine (previously I did absolutely nothing except wash it just  water) and I've more or less stopped picking and my skin is clear apart from a few small spots every now and then. I'm proud of myself but the red marks on my forehead are really bothering me. I have super pale skin so it's hard to hide any kind of discolouration with makeup without it looking cakey. Does this look like scarring or hyper pigmentation? I've been using bio oil as well as using a cleanser that claims to fade red marks, should I do anything else?
