What are some remedies for acne scars?

There's not a great deal you can do to get rid of acne scars, but you can certainly reduce their appearance. Bio Oil is a great product that reduces all scars, or you could look at microdermabrasion or chemical peels. A cleanser or night time cream which contains glycolic acid will help reduce appearance as well.

Mederma is a scar-reducing cream that is dermatologist-recommended and available in most drugstores, such as Walgreens. You just apply it several times a day, and your scars gradually fade away. I used it and it worked on several scars that I had. If that doesn't work, wear a thick foundation.

Acne scars are very hard to get rid of. The best thing to do is to go to a doctor for either laser treatments or some kind of cream you put on your scars.

If the scars are new, you could use Mederma. It helps minimize the appearance of scars. You can also try Retin-A. It dries out your face and causes it to peel a little. To me, it peels away the bad layers of skin and scars and evens out skin. You can go to a dermatologist for a laser treatment too.

You can visit your dermatologists for prescription strength creams that will lessen the appearance of the scars, or they can actually do a procedure that smooths the skin. There are various products to lessen the appearance of scars sold at any local department store.

Acne scars can be easily removed by blotting the skin with Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar, this is a natural astringent and the use of the Cold Pressed Avocado Oil will actually smooth out those scars leaving you with very smooth skin. Avocado Oil is very good for the skin.
