ATM i am using benzol peroxide and it was working well but it does nothing for my red marks, there have been marks that have been there for 2 years+. I am thinking of moving over to neutrageona products which contain 2% salysilic acid and was wondering if they would help my red marks or not?

I found that benzoyl peroxide actually slows down the healing process of the red marks. It works well and it has cleared my acne, but when it left all those red marks on my face, it worried me.

 

I did however find that using AHA really makes a difference. I use a 10% glycolic acid gel. I spot treat the red marks every morning and night before I use my benzoyl peroxide and it has made such a difference.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

i barely have any pimples anymore thanks to benzoyl peroxide, but i have many red marks and some tiny acne scars. i was wondering if salysilic acid would do better for the red marks and keep the pimples away as benzoyl peroxide is.
