Something with either AHA (glycolic or lactic acid) or enzymes. Also vitamin C is good as well. A combo of an AHA and Vitamin C product is pretty effective for getting rid of red marks/scars.

HI,

I had a $3,000 laser resurfacing done for my acne scars and I still have scars. Granted, they are a little better, but that didn't even take them away. I thought it would. But my skin looks much better.

What I have found that works really well and keeps wrinkles at bay is coconut oil. Pure virgin organic cococut oil. Not the refind stuff. I wash with an organic cleaner and put coconut oil on my face and around my eyes. That's all I do. Coconut oil has a real bacteria fighter built in, plus, it's a medium chain fatty acid. Great for the skin and the inside of your body. I also put it on my hair. It makes it so shiney!! I also cook with it.

If you are talking about pits, I don't think those can even be partially removed without professional treatments like chemical peels or lasers.

How would use use the Vitamin E to clear scars. I have seen it sold in capsules to eat but would you rub it on your face?

By the way www.veganessentials.com has a wonderful selection of organic natural acne cleansers, creams, and masks. I have tried some of them and they work pretty well.

Proactiv makes a "skin lightening" lotion. I bought it but I'm too lazy to put it on often enough for it to work. The lady at the Proactiv kiosk said it works though.

Proactiv tests on animals, doesn't it? Let a lone all of the chemicals they use, so to hell with that IMO. Most of those 'scar serums' are mainly vitamin E, you can buy liquid vitamin E in vitamin shops and just put it on your skin. You can also eat the liquid stuff and that way not have to buy the gelatin capsule E vitamins. Rub the liquid on your nails and cuticles makes them grow great.

There's also a process called "photo derm" that works best with old scars, it's a plastic surgery type of thing. Also recommend lots of exfoliating, which is what AHA does too. I don't know how 'natural' AHA is though, maybe just try using lots of scrubs.
