I have a lot of scars on my face from pimples. Does anyone know how to get rid of them? My face is very sensitive. Thanks a lot!

I found a great product to lighten acne scars. There is a psoriasis gel over the counter in the pharmacy section. It works for acne, and other skin problems. It has salicylic acid in it, and it fades stuff!
I recently had surgery for a brown recluse spider bite, and after the place healed, I had a HUGE scar! I read about the benifits of Tea Tree Oil and I mixed about 3 drops with some Canola Oil and have been applying it once a day. My scar is shrinking and fading every day. My daughter had a few bad chicken pox scars, so we tried this blend on them, and they too are shrinking! Hope this helps!

Is there any cream to clear up the marks from pimples?
By Riyaz K.
Yeah. Lots of cream offer in the market but I suggest to consult to your dermatologist so that she/he advice you on what cream best for you.
Neutrogina Rapid Clear 2 in 1 Fight & Fade Gel is excellent. Or anything that contains salicylic acid and glycolic acid if you can find a generic product.
I have one month left until my wedding. What care should I take in this one month, and how do I lighten my pimple scars on my face? Please help me out.
Squeeze juice out of half a lemon, warm it up, and add half a teaspoon of eau de cologne to it. Apply this on the face. Let dry. And wash off with plain water after about an hour.
Do this once every day. (I've tried it, and it works!) All the best! (10/03/2007)
The best tactic at this point is to find some really good concealer. (There are even ones made for burn scars, so you should be able to find something.) Perhaps it would be worth visiting a makeup artist, or just going to several department store counters for make-overs. Or try what is on the market now. If your skin is still oily, you would want something without oil in it. Usually if the mark is darker, you apply lighter concealer to even it out. Then cover/blend with makeup and powder.

Well this is probably a late entry, but for people out there that want to get rid of pimples and pimple scars, here are the best tactics.
I've been researching about hair and skin products for a very long time. I have tried many different brands of over the counter remedies and prescriptions. The best thing that works for me is every morning and night to use some kind of face cleanser. I use Clearasil. Then when you take a shower, wash your face with a light soap and then scrub your face gently with a blackhead eliminator. I use Neutrogena. Try not to use lotions on your face too much, because the oils gather in your pores. Oh, and never pinch your pimples. It may seem like a quick fix but it only makes an ugly scar and makes it spread!

You can get a small bottle of vitamin E oil somewhere such as Wal-Mart. It is only about $2-3. You could poke a small hole in a vitamin E capsule if you'd rather. Just rub a bit on the scar at least daily. You'll see a big difference soon! I use it all the time on those pesky burn lines from the oven racks that I always seem to have on my arm. No lingering scars from them though! (10/05/2007)

Vitamin E liquid is the perfect natural solution. Skin craves Vitamin E, as it's very moisturizing and healing. (10/05/2007)
If you have a month, you can do what I do. First, I wash my face every night with a face wash that contains benzoil peroxide. Then I use a triple antibiotic ointment on every scar, and it really does make a big difference. I have even compared the scars with and without the ointment and you can definitely tell the difference. (10/05/2007)
Vitamin E Oil is the best option. Regular use will lighten the scars. You can also use Lemon Juice and orange juice. Mix them together and apply on your face. Rinse off after 20 minutes. (10/23/2007)
