If you have scuffs and scrapes on your helmet, you need a new one. If it's as a decoration, I don't really think there's much of a way to do that without removing the paint too

Is this from going down in the helmet or just little marks from shit hitting it when going down the road?

If you have gone down in it, I'd get it inspected first, or just buy a new one.

If it is just little markings from stuff like sand and what not hitting it going down the road, I use Plexus and it cleans the helmet up pretty nicely.

I use a product called Acrysol that I got from a body shop I used to work next to. It's awesome for tar/road grime, plastic scuffs, and all kinds of other stuff. It's safe for paint and even for plastics yet it's pretty wicked. As an adhesive remover it's probably 3 times better than Goo Gone.

It's clear coated paint. You polish it with the same stuff you polish your bike. I would recommend and extremely fine finish polish.
