Please Tell Me If These Are Scars...

11 posts in this topic

I made another topic about this but the pictures were really crappy so I decided to take some new ones...The problem is it's really hard to actually depict how they really look IRL because it looks much more worse in other lightnings compared to these pictures. I think some of them are indented but it's not really shown in these pictures. I have no clue. I'm 110 % that the one on my forehad is a scar though but that doesn't really bother me. What bothers me is the ones on my cheeks because they're full of these annoying and hideous marks.. The marks are really interfering with my daily life and they have managed to completely destroyed my self confidence.

Though let's play with the thought that there are loads of scars on my face. If this is the case, I think they're pretty shallow. And shallow scars do fade and becomes almost invisible with time right? At least me and my wishful thinking hopes so. Maybe I'm delusional.

Could someone please clarify it for me? I rather not live with these marks my whole life.

Looks like a bit of scarring mixed with a lot of hyper pigmentation. I think once you've got the redness of them faded, not many will stand out.

I would say that it is very mild scarring and will be barely visible if you get rid of the pigmentation :)


Morning Routine:

- Avene Soapless Gel Cleanser

- Boots Time Delay AHA Toner

- Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz

- Hyaluronic Acid Serum (homemade)

- Hazelnut oil with rosemary + clary sage (on acne prone areas)

- Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Cream (10% Glycolic Acid)

- SK:N Sunscreen SPF 30

- W7 Camera Ready Primer

Evening Routine:

- Lush Ultrabland + Washcloth

- Soap & Glory ULTIMELT Hot Cloth Cleanser + Washcloth

- Boots Time Delay AHA Toner

- Differin 0.1% cream

- Hazelnut oil with rosemary + clary sage (stops oil production)

- Vitamin C Serum (also homemade) OR

- Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum

Once/Twice a week:

- Green Clay Mask (+ salicylic acid)

- Exfoliate with No7 skin cleansing brush

I think a retinoid would get rid of most of that and that shallow scarring will more than likely go away.

Okay thanks for your answers. smile.png Approx how bad will it look when the marks have faded? If you would compare it to some pictures of scars. Like keanu reeve's scarring? Brad pitt's scaring?

Could you give me some tips on some products that contains retinol?

Your case is very mild...it will clear up 100%. You could try taking a quality multivitamin/ mineral daily. Just eat healthy, exercise gently and stay away from junk food/ processed foods/ processed sauces/ microwave foods/ fried foods/ fast foods/ corn syrup/ processed sugars/ aspartame/ gluten/ flouride/ tap water/ GMOs & sodas/ coffee/ teas etc. Instead, eat lots of raw, natural, organic wholefoods, like salads with fresh lemon juice/ flaxseed oil/ salt and pepper, fruit, vegetables, seeds, nuts, rice, quinoa, chia seeds and super greens (chlorella/ spirulina/ barley grass etc). Also, try a daily freshly made fruit/ veg juice like apple/ beetroot/ carrot etc and drink natural spring water...don't use BP or other harsh topicals or washes...if you have a breakout, use Thursday Plantation's Tea Tree OIl or Lavender oil ...and maybe wash your face once a week with sea salt and spring water until your acne subsides.

So relax, it will heal, just be healthy, enjoy life, get out into the sunshine [just don't burn!], have fun with friends and it will clear itself within a year. If you need extra help, just use beta glucan liquid from New Directions and gently massage your blemishes once a day for a few minutes until it completely clears smile.png

  • Walking is man's best medicine.
  • As to diseases make a habit of two things - to help, or at least, to do no harm.
  • Prayer indeed is good, but while calling on [God], a man should himself lend a hand.

Yeah I eat far from healty so maybe I should start doing that. But I've had acne for approx 4 years and I'm 20 now and it never seems to go away... Btw my cleanser has Tea tree oil in it.

I just started the Regimen with BP, so you're saying that I should quit using it?

Quit BP ASAP or you will get horrible skin, trust me, I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE!

Stop using harsh washes/ topicals too, stick with simple water and sea-salt on occasion (or a mild vegan natural cleanser) and get Thursday Plantation's tea tree oil and place a little all over your infected area. Also, exercise gently daily, get vitamin D (sunlight - but don't burn), quit eating all dairy and start eating/ drinking healthy and drink fresh juices/ spring water daily (with a scoop of this https://www.synergynatural.com/product-information/super-greens.html)...your acne will clear within 1-3 months...try it...but no cheating by eating junk foods or it will show on your face! It's not difficult to do...healthy food/ drink can be delicious as well as nutritious...if you want to look good and be fit/ well, then eat like a healthy athlete/ healthy model...they don't eat junk. Try it & see...Cheers smile.png
