For the last 6 months my skin has never been clear, and since I'm a moron who can't resist picking my skin, I'm left with marks all over my face. The beauty of this product is it's ability to fade those "new" acne marks really fast, please note that I've put an emphasis on the word new because I found that it doesn't work that well on old marks.
What I usually do is to spread a thin layer on my acne marks every night and those areas will usually start peeling and the pigmentation will be gone in a few weeks.
Please note that by applying this product on open wounds (recently picked acne that hasn't healed yet) will burn like hell, apply at your own risk.
Another warning for new AHA users, don't start by using this on a daily basis, it will burn your skin, I've started by using this product once every week, your skin has to build it's tolerance towards this product.
Once your skin has build it's tolerance towards this product, you'll love it because it will speed up the clearing process of your acnes, and since you only need a tiny bit of product for each application, one bottle will virtually lasts forever. I had my bottle since 2008 and is still working.
