Dark Spot Correctors That Won't Break the Bank?

I have struggled with acne for 15 years now. These days its mostly under control when I use Proactiv, however the last decade and a half has wreaked havoc on my face. My daughter asked me today why I have spots on my face :( I was kind of embarrassed.

I'm 21 weeks pregnant and need something safe but effective that won't break the bank. Anyone have any suggestions?

It won't let me post the link but ANEW Clinical Absolute Even works really well.  I have talked to people that noticed a difference after only using a sample 2-3 times.  I would definitely talk to your doctor before using anything while pregnant.  Maybe print the ingredient list and show it to the doctor.

Most bb and cc creams have spot correctors in them, even the cheaper brands.

 I'll look into that, thanks! I definitely plan on clearing anything I try with my dr first

Is that like the makeup stuff I see ads for? I don't really wear makeup often because its always made my acne worse.

Yeah but it is more of a tinted moisturizer then a foundation.

No idea. I am trying to find a good micro dermabrasion or chemical peel that won't break the bank. My wright tends to Yo Yo and that has led to me looking older than I am.

I have tried.microdermabrasian and chemical peels and they torture my skin. My face is so sensitive.
I hate these spots. I used to never wear makeup but I'm starting to feel like I dont wanna leave the house without it because I look like a junkie or something :-/

Nothing will take them totally away but I hear Neutrogena makes a good one for around $20. Olay is another good brand but I am not 100% sure they have a dark spot corrector.

If they faded enough that makeup will actually cover them well I'd be happy. Hate feeling like I have to coat myself in paint to feel confident. I'll look into neutrogena, most of their stuff is pretty good. Thanks!

Lemon. Take a slice ok lemon, put brown or granulated sugar on it add honey and scrub you face. The lemon juice will help lighten the scars, sugar exfoliates, honey moisturizers leaving skin soft and nice.
