In brief: Improve Acne Scars

I do not know of any effective home-care only ways to reduce acne scars.
Products like tretinoin and lightening agents can be used to reduce textural and pigment irregularities that are seen with acne breakouts. For acne scars, medium depth peels, laser resurfacing or dermabrasion are effective modalities to improve scarring, depending on extent of scarring and skin type.
