Acne Scars

Does anyone know how to get rid of these unsightly acne scars? I look fine with make-up on but not without it!

Re: Acne Scars

Hehe join the club........I can't wait till my problem is only the scars. I think exfoliating is good. And I hear that olay regenerist is good too.

Re: Acne Scars

I use epidermx, glycolic acid and copper peptides.
Actually I'm not sure I'd recommend that lot for most people but I have tough skin and very old scars. It'd probably be disasterous for people with sensitive skin.

Does anyone on this board have olive or dark skin? I have very olive skin and I've heard you shouldn't use glycolic acid on olive or dark skin. So far I've had no adverse reactions - just quite good results on my scars. But are there long term effects of glycolic acid on skin that isn't "lily white"? Does anyone know?

Thanks in advance to anyone who answers.

Re: Acne Scars

wat kind of scars are u talking about?

I recommend glycolic acid.

Vana: doesnt matter what color skin you have as long as you dont have sensitive skin. I spoke w/ several dermatologist and facilist.

Re: Acne Scars

You will find tons of posts about aloe vera being excellent at fading scars. I haven't tried it myself yet but from what I've read, it does seem like it would definately work.
