    Hi, I'm 17 (male) now, and I've have had these acne scars for quite a long time now (since I was around 14).

    I'm indian (light brown skin), and for some reason these darkish brown scars seem to appear on my face. I've noticed they fade and become darker throughout the year (but they don't completely go away). The scars aren't big, but there's quite a lot of them, and sometimes they are very noticeable. the scars are only present on my cheeks.

    I've tried vitamin E oil and lemon, and while both make them fade, they only make them fade to a certain extent (they're still there). It's really damaging to my confidence.

    If anyone could suggest anything to solve this (preferably natural remedies, simply because it's easier to get hold of). Oh and don't suggest laser treatment either (I know exists, but preferably I'd like to try and get rid of it before resorting to laser treatment).

    Have you considered going to see your GP?

    There maybe some things that they can suggest in the forms or creams etc.
