My face is ACTUALLY clear- no active pimples- just minor red marks.
i had seriously bad red marks and tried all sorts of peels- and lemon juice (which worked great) and glycolic etc.
honestly- my red marks are fading fast and i use a shit ton of BP. the best thing is time. as long as the bp is stopping new ones from forming.. the old marks finally get to heal.
heres my routine and it workssssssss for me and my olive easily scarrd skin:
olay daily renewal wash - but i use the exfoliating wash pads to wash with (i dont use a wash cloth (germy and abraisive) and i dont just use my hands (toooooooooo gentle... no exfoliation- when i did this way according to dans method of being gentle- i just noticed dead skin building up)
- and i BLOWDRY my face with the COOL air (ive heard people sleeping w fans and just the circulating air helps their face a LOT- this is working huge for me i think.)
dans bp- let it dry- and follow with neutrogene visibly even moisturizer (i swearrrr by this stuff! moisturizes... even skin tone (i think this is helping huge w the red marks) and it doesnt cause mroe breakouts or shine (my skin is wicked oily)
i use EM makeup w the MUF HD primer underneath
at nite i wash off - maybe do a mask if im in the mood- and LOAD LOAD LOAD on bp.
lifes been good ever since.
thak god for dan
red marks are fading and i use all the bp i can load on. sooooo i do no agree that it prolongs it =)

Well I use salicylic acid in place of BP; rather than killing bacteria SA works to slough off dead skin. For some people BP works better; for others, it's SA. You might want to give it a try, I see Dan's making SA now.
I still have stubborn red marks though...real annoying cause they look just as bad as zits depending on the lighting!! grrrrr

wash with dans cleanser( i really like it)
tone with acv+green tea mixture 1/2 and 1/2
then mix 3 drops jojoba oil (full of vit E) to 1-2 drops pure tea trea oil (anti bacterial)
wash with dan's cleanser
use grean tea matte moisture (from the body shop..i loooove it it kepps my face from getting oily.)
then put on makeup (has spf in it)
Oh yea and then i drink 2tbs of ACV mixed with a glass of water 2wice a day (this is a Godsend really u have to try it)
And once every 1-2 weeks do a lactic acid peel (only for like a couple of months)...suuuper mild but ive done it twice and it seems to be helping already? Its supposed to be done 6-8 times
so this regimine works great for me& may work for others...just stick to it

Personally, BP is the ONLY thing that keeps my active acne away, and so to prevent further breakouts that would lead to redmarks, I use the BP and an AHA as a moisturizer to help with the scarring.
