i've given up trying to treat my acne scars.  Lasers, creams, light treatments, etc aren't making a big difference. As a result i need to know how to cover up or conceal the acne scarring. My skin is brown / olive in tone.

I did many trials too, just to remove the scars on my face but it's not really easy. We need to invest time and patience until I found jarviscosmetics which gave me smile after a month. I tried their free trial for a month and now they're getting better. I will continue using this product too because it's good for the skin.

Even after acne treatment following a diet is really important.I did my acne treatment from fairview clinic, Toronto. I have been using a cream given by Dr.Jain.

Is dieting better with supplements?

Diet intake is necessary if you want an effective backup for any treatment that you use.

Exactly. It's not an instance to get what you're aiming if you're just talking without any action on it. We need to move to do something about it. We need self descipline. That's the exact word ....

you may try jarvis product girl. It's quite new but they're offering trial if you want. It's satisfying.

sairaa , you don't know the ingredients. INVICIBLE is undoubtedly a great product but it does not contain hydroquinone. Hydroquinone can cause ochrnosis, which is permanent discoloration. It's just bad. Invicible scars donot have hydroquinone in it .. http://www.inviciblescars.com/scar-treatments.html.. check out their ingredients. They're just perfect

try invicible. It's great. Also , try putting on concealer until they're completely gone. You can apply make up over invicible scars. Isn't it great ?

Go for a product containing vitamin C, hydroquinone and also silicon sheets. They are specially required for treating scars.I used invicible for my scars.It worked really well.It's just the smell that uncomforted me a little bit else, the product's worth trying

Google dermaflage. They're a pain to put but if you do it correctly, it looks good.

I've been using the Made From Earth Rosehip Serum for over a week, and wanted to share how thankful I am for finding it.

As soon as I put it on my face, it felt softer, much softer to where my husband wanted to touch my face. Nothing else has helped my sensitive and upset, unruly skin. I feel better about myself already because I'm not ashamed to look at my face in the mirror, because it looks smooth now, and I don't just see lots of pores and little pockmarks from years of troubled skin and picking at my face. I don't imagine this will completely disappear the pockmarks, but I think it has given my skin the hydration it was really looking for, which helps my skin appear much, much smoother.

I'm hooked. My hubbie is using it too, he likes it.

I agree strongly that natural remedies are the best, as the skin seems to develop immunity to chemicals, even though they may seem to work initially. I have been dealing with acne and acne scars lately, which I've never had before in life. I have tried and like many of the remedies posted, but I have found that pomegranate juice works wonders for both acne and blemishes, and has worked the best for me. Fresh juice made by squeezing the seeds with very clean hands or juicing in a blender directly on a clean face (steamed a little to open pores) has drastically improved my skin, and I anticipate a full recovery from all acne and acne scars with continued use. This is very potent, and totally different from what you would get in commercial products, which have the processed(and therefore much less effective) form mixed with other chemicals. I also believe sleep before 10 pm does wonders to heal the skin and body. I hope this helps someone.

My acne scars were horrendous. I am of Asian origin and the scars left pockmarks. When I was 27, the surgeon who removed my tonsils, performed a dermabrasion and while it did not completely removed the marks, I was at least psyched into believing that they were not that bad.

My home-made natural scar lightener is very simple--i mix oatmeal with a little milk and nuke it for a few seconds. I then make a paste by adding lemon juice and a little honey. I apply it over my face and let it stay there for 5-10 minutes. I rinse and use moisturizer. I prefer Neutrogena products but I change brands once I am done with it to make sure my skin does not develop resistance to the product.

In 2007, I paid for a Fraxel peel. It made my skin glow but for this glow to continue, I have to maintain it so I still use my true and tried oatmeal "facial." My skin looks flawless with a light powder but I can still see where the scars are. My dermatologist even gave me an acid peel long ago but he told me the best advice he could is "Eat healthy, use non-comedogenic products, drink a lot of water, use sunblock, use moisturizer and remember that when a man's eyes are THIS CLOSE to your face, the light has to be off already." I laughed at that but saw the wisdom in that advice.

I totally agree with your oatmeal paste remedy. Not only is it great for acne and scars it's great for helping you look younger. I'm 45 and people never believe me and think I'm 30-34. I also add brown sugar (or white) mixed with the oatmeal. After the oatmeal I wash with Dove soap and end with palmers cocoa butter. I work in a major department store and even the makeup people ask what I do and use. I laugh when I see all these women spending hundreds on over the counter products that don't work. If only they knew!

I have struggled with acne/cystic acne for about 15 years and I have had to deal with numerous scars left behind on my face. About a year ago I started using Neutrogena's "Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Serum" every night. I don't really have an issue with wrinkles but I had read that it's good to start using products with retinol when you're in your late 20's. Retinol speeds up the cell turnover process so that you gain new skin faster. But what I found was that it actually faded my acne scars more quickly. It's not a miracle formula but I did find that it sped up the process. And I believe it is because of the retinol. Hope this helps.

hi...

We cant do acne scar technically scars at all. They Hyper pigmentation, which is normally doesnt help to scar by using scar cream. Kojic acid, hydroquinone, or just look for help with Hyper pigmentation. And remember that sunscreen products bear the increased because the sun make Hyper pigmentation worse. Well, I don't really know any remedies for, but I know helps out staying. I hope this stuff is useful.

yup. treat it naturally. or try creams that have no hydroquinone. perhaps you have been using creams that contain harmful ingredients. you can check out NeuCell skin lightening cream. aside from spots and blemishes, it also works for scars, stretch marks.
