    Vitamin K or Cocoa Butter???

    I read below that Vitamin K can lighten acne scars.....is this lightening permanent or only as long as you take it?
    I also heard Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E can do this?? Is it true, is it permanent??
    Please any feedback on how I can lighten acne scars is appreciated.

    Any cosmetic product that one uses on their skin to soften, moisturize, condition or 'heal' has to contain jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is the only oil with a molecular structure small enough to penetrate the surface layer of the skin. Any cosmetic product not containing jojoba oil will only sit on the surface and act as a lubricant. Only prescription medications can claim to alter or change a body function, and this includes scarring.

    Hey! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> I know that Vitamin E is really good for scars. I had this awful scar on my hand that was pretty deep. I put pure Vitamin E oil on it and it really, really helped. If you rub it in really good, it will start lightening up the scar pretty quickly.
