I decided last night to try zinc oxide, Burt's Bees diaper rash cream.
It isn't my favorite diaper cream for my little one, so I had a practically unused tube.
I probably shouldn't switch around from one remedy to another so much, but I just thought I would give it a try.
I washed my face and put it on my red marks last night (just a tiny bit) before bed.
My red marks are a lot less noticeable this morning!
I am actually sort of amazed that it did anything. I thought it would make me break out because it is so thick and creamy.
Maybe it would work like a mask for occasional use between peels to help with red marks.
Does anyone know how long you have to leave it on for it to work? I just slept in it.
I was impressed, and thought I would share it with you. Probably zinc oxide cream intended for the face works better, but this worked pretty well for me.

I always like finding the least expensive skin solutions and this is one of the best you can get for your money.

I stopped using it because it contained 2 antimycotic ingredients and wasnÃ‚Â´t an acne product... I donÃ‚Â´t know of an acne product containing exclusively zinc oxide here where I live....
...so I bought a few creams from eucerin, one has zinc oxide(1 of the components) and the other lactic acid... and they are meant for oily skin....
so, I hope they work

edit: woha! I just read the 2nd article you posted. I really need this! I have a HUGE pimple on my face (it's actually 2 pimples fused together...how disugsting is that??) and I've been at home for a week now (missed all of my classes!!) and I don't think im going for the next few days. It would be great to have this product for future reference.

I'm really excited to start using zinc oxide!
Just today my mom bought some all natural sunscreen with 12% zinc oxide and other ingredients such as jojoba oil, EVOO, lavender oil, aloe vera, etc.
I really hope this works for my red marks!
I will report back in a week or so! (:
