I'm 15 years old and I've always had acne but it started getting worse about a year ago. My mom took me to the doctor a couple months ago and I was prescribed minocycline which helped clear most of my acne. Now, I'm stuck with these dark marks on my cheeks and forehead that are taking FOREVER to go away. When I go to school, I wear makeup but it's not full coverage enough to cover everything. It causes me depression and anxiety almost everyday. Please give me some advice :smileys_n_people_75:

I don’t have very bad acne but I have scars too from whiteheads and little bumps under my skin which cause redness.

My guess is that you have dark spots I don’t have that but I’ve heard that this helps:

  1. Apply a vitamin C mixture to the dark spots
  2. Put aspirin on the dark spots
  3. Use a cucumber to lighten the spots
  4. Apply vitamin E to the dark spots.
Just choose one method that works the best don’t do them all in one.

good luck xx

It's all trial and error, and not everything works for everyone. That's why you should do them one at a time, otherwise you won't know which one is working. Some things do work better together, but you have to set a baseline first with one product, then add others singly and just keep adding and subtracting until you find the right combo. It's like a little science experiment.

Exfoliating also helps, if your skin can take it. They do eventually go away.

Good luck.
