I have googled it but all I see is product promotions and loads and loads of creams and it’s just difficult for me to decide because it seems like everyone is just trying to sell a cream/fake reviews. Anyway if anyone has used acne scar treatment and it has ACTUALLY changed your skin.. then please let know. What genuinely worked for you? Thank you!!

you could try african black soap. i've heard it helps reduce hyperpigmentation and acne scarring. be sure to get the real soap that is in a bar cuz fake ones ca have chemicals which are bad for the skin.

Wear sunscreen and do not expose your skin to the sun. Your red marks will fade quicker if you reduce exposure to UV light. There is no 'cure' as such, but I heard Pulse Dye lasers can help reduce the redness.

It can take several years to fade. But see a private skin/dermatologist consultant and they can advise you on the best laser treatment to speed it up.

The clinical term for it is 'post inflammatory erythema' if it helps
