Acne is one of the most common skin conditions. It affects about 80% of adolescents. Acne starts as a blockage of the sebaceous glands followed by inflammation.

I am 18 & black african & was wondering what gets rid of dark acne marks on your face naturally? I've tried honey and cinnamon so far.
Postinflammatory hyp: The first and most important thing is that you rid yourself of the acne which is causing these spots. This can be done in many ways and your dermatologist will help you. If the acne is stopped, and the spots are left alone and not picked-at, they usually do go away with enough time. Above all, it is most important to get the advice of your dermatologist. ...Read more

Of course not: This is a cruel internet prank. I'm sorry your acne was neglected and you ended up with scars. Don't continue this. All acne can be managed until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add something that will. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Forgive my frankness: Whoever told you that "natural is better" did you a profound disservice. Painting your face with honey isn't suitable for a grown man when all acne can be managed by today's scientific rx.
