I went through a pretty bad few months of recurring eczema (caused by an environmental allergy that i'm now clear of), and it left dark-ish scarring spots on my face. Any paleo remedies to get rid of the scarring? Thanks!

Was under the assumption that if you ate meat you would get plenty of glycine. Is there anything saying extra glycine over the top would provide additional benefits?

Include Homemade Organ meat and Bone Broth, which are rich in glycine. They help in speeding up the healing for gut as well as skin. Glycine is one of the important elements of connective tissue with extracellular matrix whose role is to act as link for cells. Consuming plenty of oily cold-water fish along with pastures and grass fed meat. Follow this three times a week at least. As these foods are rich in omega-3 content they help to resolve inflammation.

Vitamin C serum is really good for pigmentation. It is what is generally recommended by non crunchy people too. You can make your own using ascorbic acid and distilled water.

No real experience but since there are no answers here I'll help you spitball.

Things that might be worth looking into, applying various oils or even potatoes or lemons?? to your face, chemical peels obviously or if you want to get risky you could try a needle roller.

Not really sure what constitutes paleo...as oils arn't really paleo...neither are chemicals or needles. Potatoes are paleoish...but I don't think it's paleo to put them on your face. I would just ignore the 'paleo' part and just look for non-invasive treatments...although maybe that's what you were looking for when you said paleo....hmm.
