Salicylic Acid And Red Marks

3 posts in this topic

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.

Evening Routine:

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.
