Recently, my skins often leaves indented scars after the acnes are gone. It happens either when I pop the acne out or the acnes go away by themselves (I use BP).

 

I have been applying vitamin E from capsules on the scar at night since the Acne went away. I just noticed today that it is forming an indented scar. What should I do? I have Retin-A lying around but I have never used it on my face before. Will it help preventing the scar?

 

I have too many indented scars already and this is very depressing to me. Please help.

 

Thanks,

Start taking MSM powder once a day together with lunch. Just blend a teaspoon of MSM into water or fresh juice (it has a bit bitter taste, so it's best to blend it with juice). MSM accelerates healing and improves collagen production, I'm taking it for a month now, and I can feel my skin has become smoother, some small scars have disappeared. My skin has become very scare-prone and it's depressing me too. I feel like I'm starting to loose my natural skin youthfulness and ability to recover. Totally understand how you feel! Try MSM, it basically has no side-effects (except looser stools, which for me was a benefit, actually) :)

do you know what ive heard, and i believe this, basically if you try to keep the wound moist before it has had a chance to naturally crust up and scab, you effectively interrupt the healing process and you are more likely to scar..

 

i have witnessed this first hand, i used petroleum jelly (vaseline) to heal a picked spot, and it left a small depressed pock like mark that never healed, in comparison to where i left it and treated later..

 

food for thought.

 

a picture speaks a thousand words though. but i'd say up vit c intake. hope it heals, i know how you feel..
