Babser, I was reading online about different possible things that could be the cause of what you are going through. It sounds like your skin has been through quite a bit in the past 3 years so your skin may be in the healing stage right now. If your acne has calmed down the past 4-5 months and the only thing that seems to be persistent is the odd flaky skin and raw skin underneath, possibly it is just your skin trying to rebuild itself. It could also be the broken capillaries, because alot of people who have them were talking about how they had used lots of products on their skin and it damaged the delicate veins. I personally use a face wash called clinique redness relief soothing cleanser, and I've used it for about 5 months and all redness on my face is gone. It might help with the raw, red skin underneath. And yep, I'm here to help you out!
Yeah, i guess it has.. I just hope it isn't permanentely damaged. The way my mindstate is like i really couldn't live with myself if that ought to be the case.
Im gonna wait for my products from Paulas Choice (they seem to have good knowledge about skincare judging from their website. A lot of info and so on) and be very gentle with amounts and see if it improves my skin. If it doesn't work i will definetely give the clinique redness relief soothing cleanser a try. Thanks again you've been most helpful
