A bit of background: I'm a 21 year old girl, suffered from acne as a teenager which was worst on my back, chest and chin, some on forehead but very mild/non-existent on my cheeks. Since going on accutane 3 years ago it mostly cleared up but I've been left with red, blotchy skin on my chin, nose and forehead which doesn't seem to fade. (I have much worse scars elsewhere but that's a separate issue...)
It's easily covered by make-up, more noticeable in some lights, and some days seems worse than others- is this definitely post-acne marks that will eventually fade or could it be rosacea or something more permanent? I've tried mild glycolic peels with little effect so can anyone recommend anything to help? I'm also very fair skinned could this be why the redness is more noticeable?
(These pictures were taken about 2 months ago, I'd just stopped taking yasmin contraceptive pill...stupid decision...the more prominent red marks in the pictures were from recent spots but I'm referring more to the general pinkness/blotchiness of my skin in some places. At the moment my skin is much worse so now need to start treatment again and strongly considering dianette. So any advice on how to stop more red marks appearing and lasting in the first place would also be helpful!)
Oh, and I live in the UK, so products available here would obviously be more useful
