Acne is a horrible experience to go through. Then, after you're done breaking out, acne leaves you with dark or reddish scars!
I have had to go through this myself. It took me awhile but I finally found a technique that works. The magic secret is basically to exfoliate the skin, then heal the skin. However, if you want your skin to look good, you must go about this the right way:
Step 2: Exfoliate every 2-3 days. Do not use harsh chemical exfoliants like salycic acid to exfoliate your skin. These formulas tend to irritate the skin causing it to look more inflammed than it normally would. I found the best method to be GENTLE manual exfoliation. The most effective & economical is wither sand or cornmeal. I prefer cornmeal because it's much cleaner! Mix this with some liquid soap (like Dr. Bronner's liquid castille soap) and some water. Prepare a little a time, to make it easier to handle. Apply the scrub to your skin in a soft circular motion. Don't work on any one area too long. Remember, you do not want to irritate your skin.
Step 3: Heal the skin with pure natural vitamin E oil. Real vitamin E oil will be brownish in color, not clear/yellow. This skin friendly vitamin will do wonderful things for your appearance. The 1st application wll be the one to dramatically reduce scar visibility. To apply, make sure skin is clean & dry. For optimal results, apply after exfoliation. Spread this thick oil on anywhere you want better looking, softer skin. Make sure to cover all acne scars completely.
Step 4: Rinse skin in the morning. Do not wash with soap or cleanser.
Doing this regularly will definitely help your acne scars to fade faster. Skin heals itself while you're sleeping so use these techniques before bed for the best results. You're on your way to smooth & healthy skin!

i do it every night... i just put a small amount of vitamin e oil on my face after exfoliation.. i use maxi-peel cleanser as my exfoliator... but i am used to wash it with a facial cleanser every morning.. hahaha.. now i know its wrong to wash my face a cleanser ever morning.. i got a lesson. i just wash it with purely water... and i will use my cleanser just every night, before i use the maxi-peel and vitamin e oil..

I have had sever acne in the past and was left with unattractive scars on my face.I purchased the Dr. Max Powers Scar Serum from their website online - it was medium expensive for a scar cream - because I needed a solution. The Max Powers Scar Cream does work well, but don't expect to see results instantly. You need to apply it regularly and consistently for about a month in order to see results. It really does work though.My scars are much more toned down and less visible.

I was a little bit apprehensive in getting the Dr Max Powers Scar Serum because of the name (I believed it to be off brand). I have a 14 year old who's face started to break out severally and it left acne scars all over her face. I wanted to get the more expensive name brand acne product but I purchased this @ a good price on sale. We used it as directed "Gently rub into scar 3-4 times per day for 8 weeks on new scars; 3-4 times per day for 3-6 months on existing scars."I could see the difference in her face and about a month later. The downside is that its hard to find in store and we always have to order online, and cant avoid shipping costs. I would use this again if needed. But so far it hasn't been needed. everyone give it a try - it worked for my 14 yr old.

I was just wondering if I have to only wash my face with water the next morning. I feel like it wouldn't feel clean then. I usually wash my face w/ spectro gel it is really mild and dermatologist recommended. I have *knock on wood* clear skin w/ an occasional pimple. Some have left marks and scars for a year or two and won't go away now.If i exfoliate and then put on vitamin e oil at night, can i rinse my face w/ spectrogel in the morning?

fading scars is possible but only if you have time and commitment, i started using cream Melt with vitamin C, it does work but takes long time, i am on my second month of treatment already.

I just applied Jamieson ProVitamina E, & it is clear & sticky, is this how it's supposed to be? Should I be wearing clothes over it..?
