    Hey guys, about a year ago I began to get acne on my face. I've managed to get rid of most of my acne but I still have those damn scars. It's not just a little bit as well. It's mainly on my cheeks and forehead. I always have to wear some foundation and concealer before I leave the house to that I don't have to feel self conscious. But I really don't like caking my face Any advice as to how to get these acne marks to fade faster and how to prevent more acne from appearing? (And please tell me I'm not the only one suffering from all this acne!)

    Have you seen your GP about the acne? There are treatments they can give you to help. In fact, talking to a pharmacist would be a good place to start as at least in some areas, they are able to prescribe treatments and will at least be able to suggest what to do. A lot of people swear by cocoa butter and bio oil for scarring as well
