Hey everybody! I've never posted here before but I thought I'd introduce myself. I am Dutch/Indonesian+Irish/Native American (Jessica Alba=coloring wise I have the same color skin as her). I was the first born American on my mom's side of the family. I have a question for you mamas with olive or darker skin tones. I asked on the natural body care but nobody had any advice for me. I have olive skin tone and occasionally I will get cystic acne (like maybe one a month) and if I am under high stress, like I have been lately, it will leave a brown scar (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). The scar will last for upto a year without treatment. I am using alpha and beta hydroxy acid toner on it but it's not really making a difference. Right now I have 2 scars on my cheek and one on my chin. Other than that I have a clear complexion (except freckles ) Any advice on how to get rid of them faster? Has anyone used Mederma on acne scars or derma e scar gel?
