Does anyone have tips to fade acne scars? I am 24 and I am suffering from mild acne for the first time in my life. I use all LUSH skincare products as well as natural oils like Jojoba and essential oils like Lavender, Tea Tree and Chamomile. I'm just wondering what else I can do to fade some of the acne scars I now have. Thanks.

I know it might sound strange but the best thing i found for any kind of scar and stretch mark is coconut oil. It wont be gone over night but if you put it on every morning and night it will do wonders for you!. thats all i use now.

The thing about tea tree oil is that it can be super potent.
I like to put a little tea tee oil into some coconut oil.
The combination does help a bit. But I am always looking
for more ideas too.

I've found vitamin e oil and taking the capsules helpful. I just read though that lavender can actually Cause microsopic skin breakdown. Not sure how much research has been done on it but it was an actual dermatological paper.

I've never used it myself, but I've read that licorice root extract is really good at fading/lightening scars and dark spots.

I highly recommend Bio-Oil! Last summer I was in a hurry trying to get to work on time and I burned my neck with my straightener. Since I was going to work I didn't put ice or anything on it so it left a really bad scar. My co-workers actually wanted me to go to the hospital because the burn was that bad. I have always been a really clumsy person and have a lot of scars that I have just accepted, but this one was really embarrassing. Someone actually asked me if I cut myself with a knife. I always felt like people were staring at it and it made me really uncomfortable. I bought Bio-Oil and used it twice a day (morning and night) and my scar started to fade in two weeks! It was completely gone in 3 months, even the scar tissue is gone! I started experimenting with what it can do and now I put it all over my face every night and it takes away my acne within two days. It also evened my skin tone so now I don't even wear foundation. I know it is kind of expensive, but it works so well and it lasts forever! I have been using it since August and still have 3/4 of the bottle left. I highly recommend you try it!

If you really want to see a noticeable improvement,rub the juice of a lemon onto the skin, clean off after about 3 minutes, moisturize. Lemon juice is a natural discolouration. Please try it.

I also recommend Bio Oil. I have had a couple of surgeries in the past two years that left me with big, ugly scars (6 inches). I have been using Bio Oil on them and they are really fading! Can't recommend enough.

I know this is an old post... hopefully, your scars are gone...
But what has worked for me (I have light brown skin) I have used any thing with vitamin C.
I drank a lot of lemon water, which also helps to detox the body. But I also used truth serum by ole henriksen, and within 2 weeks by scars weren't as dark as they were, and now two months later they are completely gone

Tamanu Oil FOR SURE.. Also, I have been using the Vichy Dark Spot Corrector in the Blue Tube.. It honestly works.. Seriously, the Cosmetition at the Pharmasave I buy it at is amazed at how my scars are almost commpletely gone now.. I have used it though for about 1 Year now, and I will keep using it. I pay $50.00 for it, and it lasts me about 10 weeks. I use it 2 x daily. Also, I have heard her tell me good things about the Roche Posay Pigment Clar. which I have used as well and was very happy with too. They really work, it took about 10 days for me to start seeing my scars actually lightening, and then some totally disappearing in 3 weeks depending on severity.
I had very very very bad acne scars as I had adult Cystic Acne in my early 30's.. I hope this helps. Oh, and the Tamanu Oil will take down your acne instantly too and it helps re-build new skin cells. It is amazing and 100% Natural.
