Over time it could help with scars but I would recommend seeing a dermatologist for a gentle clindamycin gel. Also, if this mask doesn't exfoliate enough for you Lush carries a super exfoliating mask called "Don't Look at Me"- It's bright blue and smells a lot like Froot Loops. I really like the powerful exfoliation every so often. Lastly , if you want to tone and calm your skin I recommend "Rosy Cheeks" or Catastrophe Cosmetic". All 3 of these masks are suited for acne. Don't hesitate to stop into your local Lush and ask a few questions. They give awesome little samples as well.
