Acne is extremely annoying, but the worst part is that acne and pimples often leave behind those telltale red marks, which serve as reminders that you once had unsightly pimples. Once the acne is gone, you can fade acne marks with a series of different procedures. Lemon juice is by far the most recommended ingredient, as it is a natural and inexpensive way to fade acne marks. After cleansing your face, soak a cotton ball in concentrated lemon juice, then rub the cotton ball all over your face. Doing so will brighten your complexion, but if you do not want to treat your entire face, simply concentrate on the affected areas. Once you have done this, let the lemon dry and do not rinse off until the morning. Not only will this fade acne marks but it will also dry out current pimples and prevent future breakouts.

Another fast way to fade acne marks is to practice regular exfoliation. Exfoliating sheds old skin and brings newer skin to the surface and is a safer alternative to getting peels. You can also ask your dermatologist to prescibe a topical retinoid, such as Differen or Retin-A, which help shed layers or skin, revealing fresher skin underneath. Your dermatologist can also give you hydroquinone cream in a variety of strengths, which works to lighten skin. More more ways to clear your skin, check out
