post-acne marks

hi there! I would like to know what your favorite ingredients and products are for fading red/pink/purple post-acne marks. tips and advice are also welcome. I’m very curious about your faves, especially since I’m dealing with them right now. I think retinoids are supposed to be top tier for red post-inflammatory marks but it doesn’t hurt to gently supplement, right?

How about niacinamide? This also has barrier repairing ingredients while you're at it 😉

Post acne marks are bit different than PIH, what works for them are: azelaic acid, EGCG (catechin found in green tea), Caffeine. I also like to use Vitamin C and tranexamic acid on them, eventually go for glycolic acid over 10% concentration (GA is the most active AHA, but it needs to be in concentration above 10% to have exfoliating properties). If you want to try professional treatments then some retinoid treatments, microdermabrassion or acids should work well.
