Thumbs up Acne almost gone!! :D (Acne scars??)

I have 2 zits LOL.. My face is sooo smooth. BUT IT LOOKS HORRIBLE. It looks like I am still covered in Zits because i have spots, I don't know if these are what scars look like.. or just dark spots?

I used pro-active to get rid of all my zits, and they have a "spot-fader" that I used.. but this one didn't work for me.

Any ideas? Anything I can get from like wal-mart or somethin?

2% hydroquinione (spelling?). Also you can go to a derm and what they will most likely do will put you on retin a or something of the like to really exfoliate plus get rid of any residual acne once and for all with a bleach cream. Just make sure you are reallyc lear cause retin a will make you breakout and I found that by doing this combo on skin with clogged pores made my skin get more marks, go figure. Chemical peels help as well plus help with acne. You can try to find someone who does glycolic peels. Also use a sunscreen when you do this stuff, the fading cream you are talking about and what I am mentioning needs to be used with sunscreen to be fully effective. Azeliac acid helps as well and is a prescription acne med too you can get from your doctor. Hope I gave you some ideas.

Same here. My face feels like a baby's behind but it still looks like I have quite a case of acne.

Most of my redmarks are like a year old.....I've recently started using a scrub, hopefully that will help.
