how to fade acne scars (it works)

this was how my skin looked like 2 months ago u can see that i have a lot of scars from my pimples and their pretty red
i think this was me a few weeks ago with my bb cream on as a concealer u can see it's somewhat lighter but that's because it was covered up
and this was yesterday right out of the shower
I washed my face with purpose cleanser along with the best bath store acne bar and that was about it
(the dark spot under my nose is so much lighter now and my chin also looks a lot better)
the frontal view of my face

side view
well now you must be wondering "how did do that"
1st of all it takes time it's been about 2 months and my skin is slowly healing
2nd find a method that works for u
3rd try to stick to your routine as much as u can

the products that worked for me are
the body shop seaweed pore cleansing exfoliator, clinique post blemish solution, and skin food gingko bb cream.
heres how i use these products
1. in the shower i wash my face with purpose cleanser along with the best body shop acne cleansing bar
2. then i exfoliate my chin and acne scars everyday but only those spots it's not good to exfoliate your face everyday it's too harsh
3. right before bed i dab on the post blemish solution into the spot and rub it in
4. the nest morning before i head out i dab on the post blemish soultion in my spots again
5. after that i use a concealer brush and dab on the bb cream like a concealer
6. lastly i set it with a powder
all done the spots might not be completely covered but i'm ok wiht that i try to let it breath as much as i can

this is what works for me and i hope it'll work for u too i know the clinique blemish solution is pricey $13.50 for either 0.74 oz or 0.5 oz but hey it really does work i see results i tried the body shops tea tree oil thing and it didn't work it was like $20 something for 2 oz and it didn't do shit a total waste of money

hope this helps i'm gonna go to bed now and talk to my boyfriend

Good night

My haul from the past few weeks
(i know i know my bed sheets are not very girly)

1. clinique #2 toner
(on my lazy days i just take my makeup off wipe my face with a towel and rub this toner on my face and i don't get pimples the next day)
2. clinique take the day off cleansing balm
(trying it out for the 1st time if u used it before tell me about it?)
3. clinique moisture surge
(i love this moisturizer i use it everyday before i out on my makeup it keeps my face soft this is my 3rd jar i went for the 2.7 ounce it's my HG moisturizer i usually use something and leave it for another but i've been completely loyal to this product)
4. clinique post blemish solution
(this little tube is so worth the money it really is fading my scars i will do a post right after this one about my acne scars this is my 3rd one and i will keep buying it as long as i have scars)

1. Mac smoke & diamond e/s
(it can't out before and i missed it i wanted it for the longest time and now i have it mac is not my favorite brand for e/s but i'm obsessed with smoky toupy colors i just can't help myself)
2. Nars Laguna bronzer
(this is my back up i have the one where it's the laguna and orgasm compact it's my HG bronzer i tried others before but they all made me look orange and this one didn't)
3. Philosophy hope in a jar SPF20
(i never used this before so let me know what u ladies think about it)

1. cetaphil cleaner
(i have given up on brand name cleansers it doesn't do anything for me so far i'm loving my purpose cleanser it's so cheep too i will use this after i finish up my purpose)
2. evian refreshing spray
(this stuff is awesome on a hot day it feel like water on your face but it doesn't melt it off )
3. rimel london stay matte foundation in 200
(my mac color is nc 25 and this matches me face completely i use this as a concealer and it's the only foundation i own i had mac ones but i returned them because they break me out this one doesn't but i haven't put it on my entire face so i don't know)
4. skin food ginko in shade 2
(this color looks a little pink when i look at it but it works for my face and once again i use it as a concealer on my scars)
