How to clear red marks left over after acne

I used to have pretty bad acne, and I still get it occasionally. My problem isn't really the acne itself, but the discoloration it leaves afterwards. I don't seem to have any really noticable scars, since my skin is smooth, but it looks mottled and ruddy. Is there any way I can make what's left over from a year or so ago fade faster? Is there anything I can do to make new breakouts leave less of a mark? What are some good products for evening out skin tone?
