If i treat acne dark spots with an olive oil remedy, will it vanish them?

If i treat acne dark spots with an olive oil remedy, will it vanish them?

Don't know: I am not sure what exact "remedy" you are using. Olive oil by itself will not likely cause dark spots to fade. Things like tretinoin and hydroquinone can help. Although time will help to fade most hyperpigmented spots from acne. And treating with things that may keep you from getting acne lesions will help keep them from forming in the first place. ...Read more
