helllo folks! i want to update you guys with my skin, it has been so smooth for the past 3 weeks now smile.png i am still on the regimen it has been almost 2 and half months my skin has somewhat clear up but i've gotten red marks, not sure if it's a pimple because when i touch my face where the pimple was, i still feel a bump as if the  pimple grew into my skin and not out,  it's mainly on my cheeks oompf.gif ... i hope there are solutions for this,i will be attaching pictures for you to see, . Please help I want my face to be completely clear. I would love to hear  your comments <3

 

I sometime use jojoba oil with my regimen. Also after my skin stop being flaky and dry , 2 weeks ago I reduced my BP dosage to half a pump since i dont have too much acne left, is that why it's not really working? however i don't think that's a problem and i kinda stop moisturizing...

Hey there, looks like just hyper pigmentation that is left over after an acne blemish heals. Have you tried AHA in the Regimen? I'm using it now and it works well for dark/red spots. 


Daily Regimen:
-Clean and Clear Foaming Cleanser
-Dan's 2.5% BP 
-Jojoba oil as moisturizer
 
Nightly Regimen:
-Clean and Clear Foaming Cleanser
-Dan's 2.5% BP
-Cetaphil moisturizer + a few drops of Jojoba oil

I think it works pretty well to speed up the fading process, a lot of people on these forums swear by it and have had quite a bit of success with it to the heal hyper pigmentation. I'd say it's definitely worth a try!

No product is a miracle product unless you are considering laser treatments. Topical treatments take time and patience. Some hyper pigmentation will take months to heal, especially for older marks, while others take just a short bit of time.. be patient... you can't rush perfection darling... :)

So what i got is hyper pigmentation? and not acne scars? or is it the same thing?

Hyper pigmentation marks (the ones you have) are the red & dark marks left over just after an acne blemish heals. It's not permanent, but it takes several months to heal, sometimes even a full year...it's just not something you can fix quickly, unfortunately. Acne scars are actual indentations left in your skin if an acne lesion was particularly deep...they're usually shallow, like ice-pick scars.

-Jojoba oil as moisturizer

scars fully covered on my thread


1 Start reading --> Help Me! What I Do!?!? /// 2 what to use? right here --> the acne.org line -- why are you making it any more difficult? -- that's all you need. you don't need anything more than that. follow it exactly, then tell me how it was in detail (with photo proofs)

 

3 is it Christmas yet? -->> Cure Acne Guide <<-- (you may pm me one highest quality evidence for my reviewing)

 

look, you may not care, but i do -- misinformation or awfully poor data is extremely dangerousmuch comes from marketers, gurus, other media, and simply unreliable, careless people, fake or real, intentionally or not. they are NOT there to help you -- and they don't care about you -- understand that. if they did, they would make sure the data was reliable -- absolutely reliable -- among other things. so you better have diligence. You should care about where you get your data from, because 99% of it is crap, and if you still don't care, then i don't care, and you can go ahead and eat unreliable fast food junk data and bloat yourself up to become a low-quality person for the rest of your life. good people don't want that for you, only the bad do. at times, you'll piss a lot of people off when you tell them what's reality. there's a lot of sigs, and if you want to keep with quality, this is the only place i personally trust until someone shows me solid, reliable evidence. 

 

i have a one 1-line reply per directly acne-specific thread policy. all distractions/notifications turned off. if you have reliable evidence i should see, you may pm

 

 

* evil people have profiteered off of the expense of others long enough,

 

* so remember im only sharing this guide for those Few people

 

* that will actually care and appreciate it. im doing you a Huge favour~
