You can try natural products that are supposed to lighten these hyperpigmantation marks in your skin. They are not scars and normally go away on there own within a year.

From what I have read you can take apple cider vinegar and use a cotton ball and dab it all over your skin. You should put it in a little bottle and mix with a little water to dilute it.

Vinegar has acetic acid in it which is a form of alpha hydroxy acid. It will help exfoliate your skin to eventually fade away those red marks. It is also supposed to help with actual acne lesions too.

There is also this Alpha Hydroxy Acid cream that I bought at Walgreens for like 5 bucks that is 8% AHA of 70% solution. I am not sure how stong this stuff is compared to vinegar. I can't find out the percentage of vinegar anywhere. But it smells considerably better. You can rub this stuff on all day long. It says on the back "fragrance free skin treatment and exfoliator to help gently restore a fresh, healthy and more youthful appearance. Alpha Hydroxy Acid, a natural, non-toxic derivative of sugar-cane , removes dead skin cells, assists skin tone and skin texture."

Hope this helps!
