What products can I use to get rid of dark spots and blemishes?
Acne scars can be lightened with Tretinoin or Retin-A which helps speed up the skin's natural healing process so that new skin can be revealed.
Other ingredients that help fade unsightly acne scars are Glycolic Acid and Vitamin C. Garnier recently launched its Dark Spot Overnight Peel which reduces the appearance of dark spots after just one application.
For a vitamin C type of remedy, I rely on Dr. Perricone's Vitamin C Ester 15 which will not only help fade scars but also soften and brighten your skin.
