Treatment For Pimple Scars

You probably want to know how to get rid of redness from pimple scars if you suffer from the appearance of scars resulting from previous acne outbreaks. It's a troubling fact that even after acne is done away with, there are often telltale signs left behind long afterward, such as the scars that can result and the redness that they bring with them. Luckily, you will find with even a little research that there are trusted ways to reduce the redness and significance of these scars, so that they will be less troublesome and noticeable for you.

Choose your treatment strategy

Acne scars can be treated through a variety of methods, ranging all the way from home remedies to surgical treatments, such as punch grafting or laser resurfacing. Of course, you aren't going to just jump right into a laser resurfacing treatment without consulting an expert first! Your dermatologist is the best place to begin when starting to learn how to get rid of redness from pimple scars. They will be able to provide you with medication to improve your redness, home remedy ideas, or even recommend a surgical procedure that is a good fit for you, if you would rather go that route instead.

Prevention is best

Of course, the best type of treatment for the appearance of acne scars is to keep them from showing up in the first place! This can be done by a good prevention program that includes regularly washing your skin with a mild soap, getting plenty of sleep and watching your diet as much as possible. In general, a healthy lifestyle can promote healthier skin, along with a decreased amount of acne breakouts!

Even if you do find out how to get rid of redness from pimple scars, you should increase your awareness of prevention methods so that you can stomp out future skin issues before they occur. and you just need to do a little research to find out which methods you should start with. There are a lot of ways to learn how to get rid of redness from pimple scars, and you just need to do a little research to find out which methods you should start with.

While you can experiment with home remedies on your own, for other strategies you should get the advice of a professional, so that you do not waste a bunch of your time and money trying out methods that aren't suited for the types of scars you're suffering from, your skin type, or other factors.

    Clean and Clear treatment?
    Does the Clean&Clear advantage acne spot treatment work on clearing pimple scars, & pimples? if so how many days to see the results? Can i see the difference in one night ? by the way, do i need to moisturize my face first before applying the clean and clear advantave acne spot? My everyday thing is i use cetaphil for my whole face then aply the oil-free moisture from neutrogena with spf 15 . is that good ?

    • ☮☮☮ says:

      your current routine sounds good and no
      do not use moisturize before using the clean and clear
      and no it will NOT clear up your scars
      your will have to use something like mederma for that

    I need help with skin care.?
    I have scars from past pimples, and currently I am breaking out, but not that bad. Are there any products that anybody could recommend for scar treatment or pimple elimination? Also- what is the best product to use for blackheads?

    • Olivia says:

      To clear your scars, try Skin Eraser. Its a product that is made for getting rid of scars left behind from acne.
      Check it out:

      As for your blackheads (I used to have really bad blackheads as well) try Biore Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Clenser. Recently, I bought a warming facial cleanser from Olay and I’m loving it!!!! What warming cleaners do is they heat up when they hit water and friction! It feels amazing and really cleanses and exfoliates your skin. Check out this one from Biore that i recommended:

      Also, here is my skin rotine for you to try out. I really hope it helps you. I used to have HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE acne, but these products/rotine worked amazing.

      Step 1-
      Remove all of your make-up, dirt, and oil from your face with Olay Daily Facials Express Wet Cloths. Just wipe down your face throughly with one to get everything off your face. Try using circular motions.

      Step 2-
      Wash your face with a clenser. I use Olay Warming Deep Purifying Cleanser. Splash your face with water to moisten it, Squeeze a little of the cleaner onto your wet finger tips, rub them together, (this will activate the heat), and rub it onto your face. Leave on for 1 minute- rinse off with warm water. It makes your face feel sooooo good!!! (If you want to get rid of your blackheads, maybe substitute this cleanser with the Biore one.)

      Step 3-
      PAT (don’t rub) your face dry with a towel.

      Step 4-
      Apply an alcohol free toner. (MAKE SURE IT’S ALCOHOL FREE!) I use Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner. It’s so great! Put it on a cotton ball and apply it to your face in upward strokes. I really like the clean smell too :)

      Step 5-
      Go to bed.

      *** As you can see from step 5, this routine is for night time. If you are going to shower in the morning/ wash your face, skip steps 1 and 5.Just use the cleanser, dry your face, and tone your skin. I got all these products at target for a low price- nothing over $10 <3

      hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What is a good effective treatment for some dying pimple that are now scars?
    I have these scaring pimple and they are flat but they look pimple from front view. It is just really bugging me because it was use to a big pimple but now its flat and it look really big when you look it at front!

    • kelly says:

      Well,when it comes to acne scars,you should include a scar serum in your skincare regime since this could improve your scar appearance by promoting healing and cell renewal.Plus,you could also use Vitamin E or Cocoa Butter since these really works wonders on acne scars.However,if you would like to opt for remedies,I would suggest different 4 steps that you could try at home to improve your scars.

      Baking Soda-Exfoliate your skin with baking soda. Often times, a version of baking soda is used in cosmetic microdermabrasion treatments. You can give yourself a mini microdermabrasion treatment by mixing one teaspoon of baking soda with the two teaspoons of filtered water.Then gently rub the mixture on your acne scar for sixty seconds then rinse it off.

      Fresh Fruits-In addition to eating fresh fruits to supply your skin with collagen building vitamin C, you can also smear them onto your face for gentle acid exfoliation. Just puree a forth a cup of pineapple and smooth it onto your face. Leave it for 10-15 minutes, then rinse. Since the pineapple contains ascorbic acid, it will impart a brightening effect on the face, and help fade acne marks.

      Apple And Honey-Using a blender, make a mixture out of 1 peeled apple with 1 tablespoon of yogurt, half a cucumber and 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply on face, leave for 20 minutes and wash off with warm water.

      Olive Oil-Massage a pea-sized amount of olive oil onto your face.Acne scaring can cause the skin to lose its elasticity and suppleness.The moisturizing nutrients in the olive oil will penetrate the skin to deeply moisturize the skin and soften the skin’s texture.

      Well,these are those 4 remedies that works best for your skin that impose no irritation to your skin.Good luck trying these at home and pick one that suits you.Hope this helps and great skin wishes.

      P/s:You could also opt to use a facial scrub once a week to gently exfoliate your dead skin cells to improve skin complexion.Do try these remedies I suggest you.It work wonders on my skin and I’m sure it would do you the same.Hope this helps:-)

    How to get better skin? and scars?
    when i was in 6th grade i developed a bad habit of popping my pimples and re-popping them and re-popping them until they scabbed, then sometimes i would accidently itch the scabs off. Now i have really bad scaring on the back of my arms and my back and forehead, i know that people say theres nothing you can do about acne scars but if you have used scar treatment and its worked for your scars (not neccesarly acne ones) could you please tell me the brand that is the best, thanks

    How to get rid of pimple scars? How fast will the treatment take to work ?
    I have pimples i haven’t popped and some that i did. The skin now looks red and some looks brown… it looks burnt looking.

    What home remedies are there? How long will it take for the results?
    I want the quickest fix, but any remedy will work.

    • Baby #1 due December 25, 2009 says:

      It depends on how fresh the pimples are. Old scars will take a while, and you can see a dermatologist who can prescribe bleaching cream, which insurance does not cover and costs around $100. For severe scarring, laser surgery is recommended and can cost over $1000. There are OTC (over the counter) skin bleaching type creams for scars.

      If you just picked them, use Neosporin. It sounds like they will probably scab if they are fresh, and that can lead to scars. It will take a good week or two to heal. You can also use Vitamin E cream. And, next time, use black salve if there is no head on the pimple to draw the bacteria to the surface.

  19. Mike says:

    How do you heal pimple/zit scars?
    On my chin I have like little faded red dots that have been there for like over 6 months now and no matter what acne or zit treatment I use, the dots may slightly fade, but they will still be there! I’m pretty sure they are scars from past pimples I have had there since I popped them but now they are just dots instead of pimples. What should I use to heal them or get rid of them??

  20. sscisme says:

    looking for a cream or treatment to fade out the redness in pimple scars?
    preferably drugstore or under $20. thx!

    • 앙투아네트 says:

      1. Squeeze the juice out of fresh lemons or limes.
      Apply the juice directly on your acne scars using a cotton ball. Let your skin soak up the lemon juice for a while before washing it off with water. Lemon juice improves the appearance of dark acne scars and blemishes by lightening them.
      2. Mix sandalwood with a few drops of rosewater to make a paste.
      The sandalwood and rosewater paste can be used as a facial mask and can be directly applied on the scarred area. Leave the paste on for more than an hour. Wear it overnight if you can. Wash off completely with water. This is an effective method of how to treat acne scar because of sandalwood’s soothing and cooling effect on the skin.
      3. Slice up a tomato and place it over your face.
      Tomatoes are rich in vitamin A that hinders overproduction of sebum that causes acne. Vitamin A also has antioxidant qualities that refreshes and renews scarred and damaged skin.
      4. Olive oil does not only improve the taste of food, but can also improve the appearance of acne scars.
      Massage olive oil on the scarred skin. Olive oil has a moisturizing quality that softens the skin’s texture and reduces visibility of acne scars.
      5. Honey is another natural moisturizer that can help in treating acne scars.
      You can use honey as a mask or orally take a specially formulated honey acne scar treatment.
      6. To treat acne scars, use this mixture as a face mask:
      1 tablespoon of sour cream, 1 tablespoon of yogurt, 1 tablespoon of oatmeal, and a few drops of lemon juice. Pat the mixture onto acne scars, leave on for 10 minutes, and rinse off.
      7. A popular way of how to treat acne scar is to use a face mask made out of tomatoes and cucumbers.
      These two combined can greatly reduce the visibility of acne scars. Using a tomato and cucumber face mask also tightens the pores of the skin giving it a nice, even texture.
      8. To get a quick relief from acne scars.
      Rub some ice cubes in a pack on the affected area. This soothes the irritated skin and also shrinks the size of pores.
      9. Fenugreek is an effective solution to how to treat acne scars.
      You can make a paste out of fenugreek leaves and use it as a face mask. You can also boil Fenugreek seeds in water and use the solution on acne scars after it cools down.
      10. lavender oil
      Saturate a cotton ball with a few drops of acne-fighting essential oil such as lavender oil. Apply it on acne scars at least two times a day.
      11. Use cucumber juice or fresh cucumber paste as a face mask.
      Cucumber soothes inflammation, refreshes the skin, and heals acne scars.
      12. Egg whites are a cheap yet effective way of how to treat acne scar.
      Dab some egg whites onto acne scars using a cotton ball and leave on overnight to prevent acne and treat acne scars.

    is hot water fermentation good for getting rid of pimples and scars?

    How to get rid of pimple scars and get a scar free face?
    I don’t really have acne… I just get a few pimples here and there, every now and then. People say I have “clear skin”, but I beg to differ. My skin color is a soft honey color.

    This means my pimple scars are a medium brownish color. It’s like they stained my skin in those areas. They are not raised bumps or anything, just dark circles on my skin (not big circles, small…). I want to get rid of them that way I wouldn’t mind going out in public without makeup. I’ve tried everything, and all of these pimple scars have been on my face for at least 1 year.

    My main pimple bothering area is my chin. I have two small dark circles (that you can tell but it’s not THAT noticeable). I REALLY want those to go away. Any suggestions on how I can remove pimple scars.

    I’m currently using bio-oil.

    Also, for washing my face I am using Acne Free Response for Sensitive Skin kit. I wash my face with an antibacterial wash. Then, I moisturize it. Then apply the salicylic acid spot treatment on my pimple scars, because I don’t have any acne. Should I not be using the acne kit? Should I just use a normal antibacterial face wash, toner, moisturizer?

    I need a thorough answer… 10 points for the best one! Thank you! :)

    • justinbieberfan says:

      i have the same problem. But there’s an old remedy that you can use. It dries it out, but you have to use it every single day, and wash your face before you do it. Wash your face with dove sensitive skin, don’t use any of that other junk, cuz you wanna keep your face really healthy. Also sea salt soap for your face. Wash you face frequently, you know more than once a day. Now what your gonna need to do is, don’t scrub your face hard when you wash your face, cuz that only irritates the skin, but wash your face first, then use another rag to pat your face dry. Pat it gently.This is the old remedy, use milk of magnesia, unscented, make sure it’s unscented, Phillips brand. you use cotton balls to put it on your face, when it dries it turns white, so i suggest you put it on before you go to sleep, or if you know your not going anywhere, so you can wear at that time and before you go to sleep. you’ll find it at a store like wall mart or Walgreen’s or something, cuz its medicine. It’s a laxative, so look for it. Make sure it’s unscented. have to use it everyday, cuz eventually it will clear up completely. But keep using it i promise it will work, use it everyday until it clears up.if you have to buy a new bottle then do that, just keep useing it. Cover your entire face with it. Don’t eat it. You put it on your face, lol.

    Which is better for SCARS? cocoa butter, Mederma, Sebo de Macho, etc.?
    I heard these things help lighten or even erase scars completely but I want to know which one is the BEST PRODUCT for people who have tried EVERYTHING for their scars to go away. Especially for PIMPLE SCARS and MOSQUITO BITES (even though you tried really hard not to scratch them but it still left some scars).


    cocoa butter? – If it is, what brand and where can I find it in the Philippines?

    Mederma? – Can we buy it in the Philippines? Is it available in Mercury Drug?

    Sebo de Macho? – Many Filipinos use this but does it really help or it just whitens the skin? (which will look nasty if you only put it on some parts of your face)

    Johnson’s baby oil gel w/ aloe vera and vitamin e?

    Bio-Oil Scar Treatment?

    those Vitamin E gel capsules that you can prick and apply the gel on your skin? – If so, which brand?

    • bellamia1946 says:

      Yes, in my experience, to some of the above. I’ve used aloe vera gel and aloe from the actual plant. Also, vitamin e capsules are great for scars! Any brand works well; you can also buy vitamin e oil in a bottle. Any health food store carries the oil, most stores (such as Walgreens, Walmart, Kmart,etc) carry the capsules. Also, take Vitamin C tablets orally–this is important for healing.

    Finally cleared pimples.. how do I treat scars?
    I just recently got clear skin thanks to an Avon facewash, but I as wondering what I could do for the purple scars I have on my cheeks. they aren’t the acne scars with the holes r anything. just a purple color that seems to show a lot when I use makeup. would regular scar treatment work for acne scars?? I can’t spend a lotand I don’t want to use a different facewash

    • Joely • Sparkling Diamonds... says:

      What you need to do is get yourself on a good microdermabrasion system. I highly recommend “Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion & Peel System” It will give your skin the nutrients and brighten the skin. Lifting acne scars, redness, and basically help take off that first layer of rough skin that was left from the acne. Changing the texture, and well like new skin I guess hahaha. You should use it about twice a week, or even go for 3 times, but since it’s “regenerating” your skin, I definitely wouldn’t use it anymore then that.

    What is the best treatment for Acne scars?
    When i was a teenager i suffered from severe acne. Now i am 30 years old, i no longer get acne but i do have acne scars on my forehead, chin and side of my cheeks. I also have enlarged pores which causes my skin to get oily. I was my face to control this and find it hard to wear makeup because of the oily skin. I hate makeup anyway lol but i only wear it to cover my scars at work. I was considering microdermabrasion or laser scar treatment and i really can’t decide. I know i should go to a skin specialist but i want to hear from people who have had the same problem and what they did to solve it. My scars are small as i only got small pimples but are a little deep so you can really notice them along with the enlarged pores. Please, only people who HAVE had treatment! Thanks.
    So people are aware, i am speaking of scars that are hole related by acne not blotches from acne. These scars are 15 years old, you see what i am talking about now?

    What’s the best treatment for getting rid of scars from pimples on your face? Something that works quickly?
    I’ve heard so many different things but is there a shelf product in Australia that can help? I’m using Nivea face cleaner for men, and a clean and clear blackhead cleaner after I shower but I want to get rid of allot of teenage years of picking at my face. I want clean looking skin.

    • Nickie says:

      Bio oil helps reduce the look of scars which is quite cheap and you can buy off the shelf. But it does feel quite oily. It’s available in most chemists.

      I would try it though.

      I would also recommend SILK PEELS.

      I would recommend finding a Beauty Salon (they cater for BOTH women and men) and find one that offers Silk Peels. (I am in Australia)

      The beauty Salon I went to had this treatement. A Silk Peel is basically they used this little vaccum sucking machine to clean your face. It sucks up blackheads/pimples/dirt/oil etc. completely safe, and not dangerous at all and doesn’t hurt. All you feel is a sucking motion on your face…(there is no peel or anything). I’ts great. After you get one done, you can feel you face and your skin DOES feel like Silk!!!! (hence why they call it that name). It used to cost me about $ 100 per session.

      I have had some scars that i have, that have been reduced immensely, and seen photos of other people where it’s improved.

      I’m not sure where you could get them from. Only a few beauty salons have it i think. But if you did some research I would definitely recommend it. I used to do a Silk Peel monthly in combination with my cleanser/mosituriser creams (I use dermalogica products).

      Here I found from the place I go to what it says about the Silk Peel.

      SilkPeel Dermalinfusion is the most advanced form of micro-dermabrasion available in the world today. It is a breakthrough treatment that combines non-invasive exfoliation with infusion of skin-specific solutions to improve and revitalize your skin. Benefits include:
      Immediate skin improvement
      A non-invasive technique
      Simultaneous exfoliation, dermalinfusion, lymphatic, muscle and nerve point stimulation.
      Specific solutions to address clients concerns
      No down time
      No peeling
      No prior skin preparation time required

    • karmaa says:

      Try mederma or neosporin – keep it moisturized – cocoa butter lotion, or vaseline at all times. Also the inside of Vitamin E gel tablets. There is a new acne product out that is supposed to reduce scarring by Clearasil I think – check out that aisle in the store and read some of the labels. The more recent it is the better chance you have of clearing it up.

      Last resort if nothing works – makeup – concealer/corrector for the body. You need something for your body – you really need to see a dermatologist so he can give you something that is stronger than what is sold in the stores – that is the only thing that would help probably if these don’t – I would see one asap as you only have a few months! Congrats & good luck!

    we all know that black peoples skin is way different then white peoples skin and i was wondering if there is a treatment for acne scars

    • shexybeast. says:

      It doesn’t matter what color skin you have-the key is exfoliating. Get some scrubs or look up natural remedies. Also, try putting honey on your scars or all over your face in general.(after exfoliating, if you can.) Honey does wonders for any scars and acne prone skin. I should know, I use it every week and my skin feels so much softer!

    How to heal a pimple scar?
    So i tried popping a pimple (dont ask). After a while there was a scab but i pulled it off too early and now theres a nice pink scar left.

    is there any way to treat this?
    any way to make it less noticable?

    i’ve been putting on AcneFree Scar and Erase treatment for the last 2 days..but wanna hear other opinions

    • Nocine says:

      I’ve heard that vitamen-E oil helps. You can buy it in a little flask at Walmart -think it’s called Fruit of the Earth. Or buy the real Vit. E gel pills. Prick w/a needle & squeeze out the oil. A little dab on the blemish will do ya. Just DON’T put around the eyes, cuz when it dries it can prematurely wrinkle up the skin.

    My scars aren’t indented jn my skin they’re just like little red/purple dots. PLEASE HELP ME GET RID OF THEM :(

    • xashleyleyx says:

      it’s very difficult to get rid of acne scars and usually over the counter products do not help. I have acne scars on my chest (keloids) and I see my dermatologist to get steroid injections to help reduce the size, the small ones disappeared and it helped lighten the color on the big ones, they also provided me with cordran tape, it’s a steroid tape that you apply on top of the scar as well.
      Anyway, the best thing to do is see your dermatologist. Good luck!

    Pimple Scars?
    Do you get pimple scars after you go do your treatment? I don’t know if I should leave my Aesthetician, I have been w her for almost 2 years but early this year, I had more pimples than before and she popped them now I am dealing w pimple scars. I used to have flawless skin even I had pimples I never had scars before I went to her. Is this normal? I am using a face mask on the scar area to cover up. I lost my flawless skin. Don’t know if it’s mine or her fault or if this is normal. She said it’s what I digest and from what I eat. But I am eating healthy coz I’ve been on a diet.

      apply proactive or benzoyl peroxide its very effective for acne and pimples…
      drink 8-10 glasses of water
      apply ice to your face regularly it closes the pores so that would definitely reduce the acne breakout
      check this site to find out how to get rid of pimples and its mark , it has good home remedies and info on aloe vera gel hope this helps

    whats the best treatment for red acne scars?
    i recently starting taking accutane and its working pretty well for my acne…i dont really have any active acne but i have all these red marks/scars from previous pimples that i popped, scratched, etc. ive been drinking plenty water bc i heard that helped, havent really seen any improvement, i also use retin-a every once in a while, not too much because it dries out my skin alot…but what else could i do?

    How to get rid of acne scars?
    I have several acne scars from past pimples. Is there anything I can do to eliminate or reduce them? Could I use a scar treatment that is meant for your body on my face? Or is there something else I should use?

      Here are some of the Home Remedies for pimple scars :

      1. Tomato, which has vitamin A. Vitamin A, controls the production of excess sebum and also an excellent antioxidant. Slice tomato and apply slices directly to skin.

      2. Your skin needs water to keep the skin plump, remove toxins and build new skin cells. Drink at least 80 ounces of filtered water a day to give your skin the quality and quantity of water it needs to reveal healthier, fresher skin.

      3. Cucumber is one of the refreshing treatments used for the treatment of acne. Blend the cucumber into a paste and apply it on the spots. Leave it for 30 to 45 minutes and then wash it off.

      4. The sandalwood and rosewater blend can be used as a facial mask and cab be instantly applied on the pimple areas of skin. Wear it during the night before going to bed.

    Does Neosporin or Desitin work on zits, blemishes and zit scars?
    I’ve read a little of these remedies and wondered if Desetin (baby rash ointment) or Neosporin (scar treatment) really work for zits, blemishes, and zit scars (e.g. you pop a pimple, oops now you have a red dried blood crispy spot)

    • soccer girl says:

      i think that neosporin would be the only thing that could possibly work in a situation like this. i have put it on from time to time and it does help to reduce the redness and the swelling. but it is different for every person. i would recommend getting something like the bare escentuals blemish kit because it works wonders on your skin or something like oxy to apply at night.

      good luck! :)

    Does anyone know the best treatment for my type of acne what is a chemical peel?
    My acne is red and bumpy and its sensitive to the touch. I don’t get the whiteness to my pimples they just stay red. I’ve tried everything from presciptions to proactiv I feel like nothing is helping. My face is all dried out from all the stuff i’ve used. I read on another question someone suggested a chemical peel or laser treatment for scars can you get it done for acne too?
    My acne is not that Rosola?? the patcy redness, my acne is big red pimples

    • n0luckz says:

      What I used were dove facewipes and my spots completely went. I have smooth skin and whenever I didn’t use them for one day, i’d get spots that day and they’d go when I next used them.

    • Caroline says:

      see a dermatologist and they might prescribe you accutane if the break outs are that bad. accutane works like almost 100% or something, its really powerful but they have to check your liver every once in a while but its really really effective.
      or they could just put you on anti biotics which work too but arent that strong

      they also might give you topical treatments like tazorac but that dries up your face a lot. idk but the dermatologist usually knows whats best for your face. just do that and get something to calm down your break outs and once they are down you can get laser treatmants for acne scars!

      if you dont want to go see a dermatologist then just get pro active or the clean & clear acne kit or murad acne complex kit

      i know what your going through :/

    Does Oxy Maximum (acne) wash, pads, and spot treatment help acne scars?
    I bought Oxy Maximum and it completely got rid of all my acne!!!! But i still have scars from all those times i popped a pimple(b4 Oxy). Will Oxy eventually get rid of those? If yes, How long dose it take? If no, What will? They are HUGE acne scars so they are very noticeable. 10 points for best answer!

    • Jemma says:

      Heyy I’m not sure about the oxy thing u mite have to do abit of reserch the only thing that 100 percent works is laser treatment sorry bout not having much info good luck hun :) xx

    Laser treatment for pimple scar?
    I had pimples on my nose a couple time (real nasty ones lmao) and over a year later there is redness and hyperpigmentation, that is the colour does not blend with my natural skin tone.

    It looks like a permanent blemish; my question is can Laser treatment fix this and is it very costly?

    thank you!

    My face isn’t that bad, but I have a few blackheads around the jaw area of my face.. And few pimples on my cheek area and scars too.

    • Brandon says:

      Clean and Clear. I used Proactive for 2 year and it worked for awhile but a year later it started to make me skin peel really bad and it was not treating my acne anymore so I switched to clean and clear about a month ago and nothing has ever made my face so clear! Even with proactive I always had some pimples but for the first time in a long time my face is clear and is staying that way….hopefully. It also smells good.

    Best treatment for pimples and scars?

    I currently have several pimples on my forehead and on my right cheek, and some old pimples scars from a few months ago on my cheek as well.

    I was my face twice everyday- morning and night- with laneige professional cleanser, then use Neutrogena alcohol-free toner, and olay complete spf 15 moisturizer for sensitive skin.
    **I also have very oily skin year-round.

    What treatments for current pimples and old scars are the best?

    thanks :)

    • SisiSeeTheSea says:

      I’m a huge fan of the brand MURAD. I’ve used it for 4 years now and it has done wonders! I used to get terrible acne sometimes I’d get the cystic kind where its just a large hard red bump that doesn’t go away for weeks. I tried Pro Active, Clearasil, Neutrogena, Skin MD, and a few others with no results. I finally started using Murad since that was the skin care line we carried at the salon I work at (It’s a hair salon but we do sell products too mostly hair but we have 1 skin care line and a mineral make up line) and it cleared up my skin so fast! I rarely break out now if ever. They sell the kits for like $60 and it comes with a facial cleanser, a toner, a face lotion and a spot treatment. They also so have a Post-Acne Mark Lightening gel that gets rid of scars and it really works. I always get so excited telling customers about this line because it worked so well for me. I know it did it’s job when they get skeptical with me and go “you don’t look like you’ve ever had a pimple in your life” or “yeah but you already have great skin” I literally have to pull up on old picture of myself for them to believe me. Anyway enough raving. Try it yourself. Let me know if you need me to put up a before and after pic lol
