Re: whats best to fade acne marks?
I assume you mean for face acne.
Here's what worked for me to clear my acne and redmarks.

First, if your acne is really bad.
You got to use an antibiotic.
The best one I'v tried for acne is Doxycycline.
Get the Doxycycline thats 100MG per capsule. Take one a day.

I also use besides the Doxycycline.
I like the Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Cleanser.
This cleanser uses Oxygenated Amino-peptide, plus oxygenated derma-beads to gently removes dead skin surface cells to detoxify.
It regenerates skin's surface at the cellular level.
Its got nice ingredients.
Beta Hydroxy, vitamin C, E, B5, Amino Peptide.

I also like the Juice Organics Nourishing Cleanser
They sell this in CVS.

This soap-free cleanser is made with organic juices and antioxidant vitamins to nourish and revitalize skin cells.
It uses Grape Seed, Aloe, Chamomilla, Sunflower seed, Apple, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, B5, Citrus.
This is a really good cleanser and feels good on the face.
Leave it on for a minute then wash off.

For a toner, I like the Avalon Organics Vitamin C Balancing Facial Toner.
It has a ton of vitamin ingredients.
Ester C, Chamomille, Green Tea, White Tea, Echinacea, Aloe etc.
This toner helped fade my redmarks.
Put in on and dont wash it off.

2 lotions I recommend for acne on the face and redmarks.
One is the Neutrogena Multi Vitamin acne treatment.
Unfortunately, Neutrogena stopped making this.
They were so stupid for doing this.
This was a great product.
It helped bring down the acne without creating marks or little scars.
It used nice incredients.
1.5% Salicylic Acid, Grape Seed, Kiwi, Honey extract, Oatmeal, Glycolic acid,
Vitamin A, E and B5
You can still get it.
Some stores still have it and you will see lots of them on e bay.

I also recommend this new product.
Its called Wet and Wild Spot Treatment.
Dont be fooled by the name.
This is a great lotion for getting rid of acne and redmarks.
It uses top of the line incredients.
It uses 2% Salicylic Acid, Green Tea, Aloe, Nobilis Flower, Tee Tree Leaf Oil,
Cucumber, Algae Extract, Licorice Root and Witch hazel.
They sell this in Walgreens and Rite Aid.

Dont use these lotions at the same time.
Try each one and see which one works best for you
