Red marks on cheek that won't go away?

Recommended Posts

I have red scar marks on both side of my face that hasn't gone away in a year. 
I did some research and I think it's Post inflammatory Erythema. 
For those who had the same scars and successfully got rid of it, what treatments/products did you use? 
No prescribed medicine- just over the counter please. 
I'm  currently using tea tree oil. IMG_4054.JPGIMG_4055.PNG

Tea tree oil is great for active spots/acne, not so much for red marks.

Pure Aloe vera, Vitamin E (you want the highest IU count you can get) , Vitamin C (products ideally with 20%+ l-ascorbic) all help with fading these red marks. 

Oh and please do use sunscreen when you go out!
