So, I’ve had acne since I was 11, and I’ve tried everything under the sun. It’s been getting better, because I’ve been drinking more water and washing with an all natural scrub. The problem is it left a lot of scarring behind. I was wondering what you guys might recommend to help me get rid of the scarring faster? I’ve heard that this stuff called Egyptian Magic is really good, but it’s $40 a jar.

Okay I would really only do this if you have like SEVERE scars.

I had a scar on my neck from a cancer surgery and I started using scar therapy patches from Walmart and they are amazing. They dramatically smoothed the scar out and make it blend into the rest of my skin. Ofcourse you can still see it a little bit, but it worked wonders. The only down side is that it’s about the same as that stuff you mentioned, 40ish dollars. Plus you do have to wear them for about 6 hours a day for 3+months. I just wore them while I was sleeping and they worked amazingly. Again, if you don’t want to spend that cash, you can always go see a dermatologist for any other suggestions.

Thanks, I might try that. They’re not too bad, but I’d prefer for them to not be there.

Rubbing Vitamin E on scars can reduce the redness in size and redness as well as any product with green tea in it such as Sudden Change Scar Zone A, it’s affordable and available in most drug stores!

A prescription retinoid (see your family doctor or dermatologist) + sunscreen. For an OTC remedy, a retinaldehyde product by Avene (Diacneal, Eluage or Ystheal) or a glycolic or mandelic acid-based leave-on treatment (acne.org, Alpha Hydrox, Garden of Wisdom, DDF, etc). Again, you need to combine these with sunscreen during the day as they can make your skin more photosensitive.

Although it is great for minor wound/scar-healing, many people with acne-prone skin find that vitamin E oil is comedogenic (pore-clogging). I’d double check the ingredients of Egyptian Magic for potential pore-cloggers before use, too. For marks from full-blown, medically recognised acne, you’re likely to need something more potent/aggressive.

I had mild to moderate drug-induced acne (from a long-term medication) on my chin/jaw which left red marks and some ice-pick scarring. I use retin A (tretinoin) at the lowest available strength (0.01%), which after only a few months had done more than anything to halt the acne, but had also reduced the scarring to the point where it’s no longer visible to anyone but me…and I have to squint up close in the mirror. I have very sensitive skin, but I used it responsibly and had no problems.

Retinoids shouldn’t be taken lightly, but they can be extremely effective.

australian tea tree oil, it helped me, and it’s a safe way to treat them. I have a medium acne problem, but I do have a lot of scars. I mix nivea regular cream with some oil rub it on my clean skin in the morning and in the evening. During the day I make a honey and lemon mask and keep it on my face for 15 minutes. Also I noticed a big difference since I’ve started washing my face with cold water only, and I stopped wearing foundation, I just put some mineral powder and that’s it. Small steps make a big difference. I advise you to try some of this things too. Also, I completely changed my diet , and started taking B complex and Zinc. Good luck!

Facial acne is easier to treat than body acne, but has a bigger chance of coming back in the form of flare-ups. Dust, air pollution, cosmetics and shaving are all factors that work in favor of acne by irritating your skin or clogging your pores.

I use to use a fade creme for mine that worked really well. Then one day the clinique counter at my local macy’s was having a promotion so i tried their 3 step process and I have feel in love with it. It is a little more expensive because it is 3 different products and each one can run up to $30 dollars depending on size but it is well worth it. There is a soap, that is used to wash your face, then a clarifying lotion which pulls the dirt out of your pores which tends to sting when you first use it which shows how dirty our skin really is and then there is a moisturizing lotion to put healthy oil back into your skin.

Hi, my dear! I know how difficult acne problems can be! I have also struggled with it. You would need to see your doctor, but Retin-A has worked wonders for keeping my skin clear and evening out some pretty bad scarring. I think you can get over-the-counter retinol treatments as well. I’ve heard they are just as effective. Be warned—when using this type of product, it may get a little worse (my skin was a little dryer than normal) before it gets better. Good luck to you!
