When I was younger I picked my spots and they left horrible red marks! I don't pick them anymore and am following a strict face cleansing routine but Bio-oil and Cocoa Butter don't seem to be reducing the appearance and worsen my skin by making it more oily causing it to break out.
Does anyone have any spot scar recomendations which can be bought at local chemists or beauty stores??
No surgery suggestions, please, even though it may be the best option.
Help is much appreciated.Acne scars?!?
So you've followed our tips on combating acne and your skin is blemish free, but now you're left with red or brown spots or your skin appears to be pitted. There are two ways to deal with acne scars. The easier option is prevention. Most acne scars are caused by the type of acne known as cysts. These are painful, red bumps underneath the skin. If you pop this type of blemish it is more than likely that you will develop a scar. Even though it may be uncomfortable, you need to use the right treatments and let your skin heal.
If you have done your best to treat your acne and you still end up with scars, it is not the end of the world. Pigmented scars are red or brown marks left behind after an acne blemish has disappeared. Pitted scarring is a result of damage to underlying skin tissue. There are ways to plump up and repair that tissue. Pigmented scarring is the most common and while it is not permanent, it can take weeks or months for it to clear. This news may make you want to run and hide under a rock, but don't worry there is hope for your damaged skin.

asprin mask is good basically you get like 4 asprin tabs wet them a little and scrub your face with them and leave them (not too harshly)
this takes the dead skin cells of and also helps tone down redness.
one thing thats really good also is lying in the sun for a bit- without sunscreen not too much though! the sun is good for the skin as it gives you Vitamin D and also a healthy glow but be sure to put sunscreen on, on a daily basis as too much sun may worsen the condition.
YOU SHOULD GO SEE A DERMATOLOGIST! YOU DEFINETLY SHOULD NOT BE USING COCOA BUTTER BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT IS BREAKING YOU OUT. WHEN YOU ARE ACNE PRONE EVERYTHING YOU USE ON YOUR FACE SHOULD BE OIL FREE. IF YOU CAN'T GET TO A DERMATOLOGIST THEN LET ME RECCOMEND TO YOU THE PROACTIV 4 PIECE KIT WITH OIL FREE MOISTURIZER FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS TO A TEE AND YOU WILL BE AMAZED! BUT PLEASE STOP PUTTING COCOA BUTTER ON YOUR FACE! AS FAR AS THE SCARS YOU NEED OT SEE A DERMATOLOGIST FOR THAT. CHEMICAL PEELS MAY HELP WITH THAT TOO OR MICRODERMABRASION!
