  1. I've got these dark/red marks I got from scratching pimples in the past and they have remained for a long time.Now I decided I need to get rid of them using either lemon juice mixed with acv and water or just aloe vera.I have used aloe vera in the past but I havent seen any significant changes.
  2. 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 (The two scars under

I can deal with everything no problem but unfortunately I have surgery coming up. I've been waiting to get booked since January and I thought
  5. Hi, I dealt with mild acne for several years but during my senior year of high school, my acne magnified and became much more severe. I finally cleared up my skin the summer after senior year by using the Regimen, but I now have red scarring all over my cheeks, which I'm unable to cover even with high coverage foundations. I only get a couple of spots of active acne occasionally now, but for the most part all of the marks on my face are scars. I think the scars may have darkened over the sum
  6. Help! Last year I went to the doctor because of my acne, and I got something called epiduo (benzoyl peroxide) and I tried to use it but it only worsened my acne. After some while after I stopped using it, my acne suddenly got better. Now in January suddenly my acne got worse. It started with 2-3 bumps on my cheek and then it spread on all over my cheek. I went to the doctor and she prescribed me antibiotica lymecycline actavis. After a month of use, she prescribed my tetracycline actavis. I thin
