In Topic: Does this regime help with red marks?

Yeah I've been using a Salicylic acid peel 20% for the past 4-5 weeks and haven't seen improvement with my red marks what so ever. I'll stick with it a bit more though. I've heard good things about AHA and Apple Cider Vinegar..

BP does appear to prolong red marks for many people; however the best prevention for red marks is to prevent acne in the first place, so you should aim to use BP anywhere where you are prone to acne as it will help to prevent any future breakouts (thereby preventing future red marks).

You can incorporate AHA+ into the regimen which will exfoliate your skin and may help smooth your complexion and fade the marks over time. There really is no quick fix unfortunately and BP is the best way to prevent future acne!

Okay thanks, what's the best AHA+ and where can I buy it seeing as you live in England as well? Thanks biggrin.gif

So last week I went on holiday, with already moderate acne. Anyway the night that I arrived in Greece where I was staying I looked in the mirror and saw that I had 5 white heads on my chin  redface.gif My skin didn't have any active pimples before I went on the flight as well, so I kept on breaking out while I was there with about 2-3 new white heads everyday, luckily though the sun faded my red marks from previous acne massively (I DID wear sun lotion btw). Unluckily though on the flight home it was even worse as I had another 5 new pimples which sucked even more because I was at a music festival as soon as I got back so I popped most of them because they were too embarrassing and btw I would normally never pop them.  So Now I have even more redmarks then before. HELP sad.gif
How can I prevent something like this from happening in the future? How do you deal with your acne on flights? thanks


thats quite strange.

I know, I guess it could be because of the dirty recycled air conditioning and the dryness of it. Also because I didn't moisturise those days  confused.gif

Hey everyone,

Well it's been awhile since I have posted on this board. After battling my acne for a bit I seemed to have finally got in under control. My dermatologist said overall my complexion was good despite my red marks and scars left by the acne. She suggested that I do chemical peels to help with that. My appointment is tomorrow and I have to admit I am kind of nervous. I am going to be going through a series of 3 of them. I've heard for some it hurts afterwards others it doesn't and that your face gets super sensitive. What do you guys recommend I do to help with the process?

I've done 2 at home, there's only a little bit of stinging for the time that it is on. It's fine. Just make sure you moisturise after as your skin will get dry.
