In Topic: Are These Scars? Will They Go Away?

It just looks like hyperpigmentation to me. The quality isn't the best but I wouldn't be surprised if you had a couple of shallow rolling scars. You can do acid peels (lactic, glycolic, etc.) at home to lighten pigmentation and you can use AHA cream, like Dan's AHA+. The cream you can use every night (but start slow) and peels probably twice a week and then you also slowly work up the percentage.

Your skin looks amazing! I'm glad the DKR worked out so well for you! :) Wasn't the same story for me, haha, but at least I found something else! I used jojoba oil too, when my skin got really dry. While it helped with the dryness, it broke me out a LOT too, plus it made my face yellow. I'm Asian so I already have yellow undertones so I just looked SUPER YELLOW. I used Pond's cold cream when I get super dry in the winter now. It doesn't break me out and it's really moisturising!

Yes I'm still on Diane, but since I've been clear I've updated less since there's not much else to say! I'm just working on my residual PIH and Diane doesn't really help much with that. But I try to update once in a while with regards to my peels and stuff anyway. My skin is usually 100% clear - texture is not the greatest but I'm slowly working on it. I get occasional actives when I'm stressed/during my period, but it's not often. Ever since I hit the 6 month mark everything's kind of stayed the same. 


In Topic: Huge, Super Rough Patch Of Skin After Using Benzoyl Peroxide.

LUCKILY it did not scar, which was surprising because I normally get red marks from pimples even without touching them! It took about a week and a half to heal with lots and lots of careful exfoliation and moisturising. Although it might be because I was so diligent with it that it didn't scar...?

Sounds like a sudden reaction. It's happened to me before - been using BP for at least half a decade with no problems and one day it just irritated my skin. It would get super rough, red, itchy, scaly and the skin would peel when I washed my face. I had to stop for a couple of months but eventually i tried using it again and it was ok. I use very small amounts now though, just in case it happens again. If it persists for a few days, I would say give your skin a bit of a break before trying it again. I never really figured out why i had that reaction :/
