While we're on the subject, do "ditch" type scars ever go away? I have a few small ones, look kinda like they're from chicken pox except I've never had it. How do I conceal these and/or make the skin come back up?

I would recommend the mac select cover-up (comes in a sqeezable tube) just cause it's so easy to apply and it covers my scars pretty well

Since you're a fella you probably don't want a heavy make-up look. Try Physicians Formula Pearls of Perfection in translucent. It evens out the skin tone with a made up look. I don't know how dark the marks are so it might cover everything but it will look natural.

Try s product called bio-oil - its about $14 from supermarkets and you rub it on your face at night and it seriously reducing scarring! It is great! Made so much difference! I really hope it works for you.

Everyone keeps talking about mineral makeup but i've never tried it and i dunno if it works.

I have acne scars, bumps(increasing daily and i use full coverage makeup to hide my scars. My newest makeup works so good that if someone sees me without it they won't recognize it's me.
I use Revlon Colorstay makeup(it's oil free) and i know a lot of you are thinking it's drug store so it's probably not as good as other brands but honestly the coverage is MUCH better than anything else i've tried.
The foundation itself is thick and smells a little but i'm not the kind of person that gets turned off by smells. I dont use a concealer either but my scars are covered perfectly. Also, it's longlasting..a bit too longlasting so you have to make sure you use a good cleanser to wash it off at night.

It really works and the best I have used. But don't use too much on the face only a few drops and rub for a few minutes before you go to bed. Not for day time, especially if you have oily skin, just every night.

I'm on acctuane right now, so the problem is not acne, just the hyperpigmentation from earlier acne. Thanks for the site. I just wonder how much of the product is actually used and how much is airbrushed. I'll try it out and I hope they have a good return policy.

I use a concealor from maybelline on my scars, and nuetrogena foundation. I think it provides a naturnal finish, but really helpscover up all my scars!! Hope it helped.
