For faster facial scar healing is it optimal for the skin to be moist or dry? These type of scars are left over after acne.

In brief: Moist AND CLEAN.
While dry wounds are less likely to become infected, moist wounds are more likely to heal faster with less scarring if kept clean.

In brief: Neither
Scars do best when they are neither excessively dry or excessively moist.
Use a good cleanser and keep your skin hydrated.
