can anyone recommend products that deal with this? I've seen commercials for 'bio oil' and 'vichy' and a million more. I'm not sure what to use - any tips would help!

Still working out on how to get rid of acne scars. As for acne itself, the previous answerers have pretty good suggestions. I was want to add that when looking for a scrub to exfoliate, make sure it contains salicylic acid.
You should also you a cleanser that contains benzoyl peroxide. This not only removes the dirt that clogs your pores, but the benzoyl peroxide kills acne causing bacteria.
When looking for a moisturizer, look for one that says noncomedonic and contains SPF. Noncomedonic means that it is oil free and will not cause acne. SPF, obviously, protects your skin from sun damage. You may also want to look for one that contains Vitamin E, which fades scars.
As for specific brands, everyone is different. One brand that works for someone may not work for the next person. Perfect example: Proactiv. Some people swear by it, while others hate it. Generally, just look for salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide for exfoliation and cleansers. Look for noncomedonic, SPF, and vitamin e when looking at moisturizers, make up, etc.0
