So I've been dealing with acne for about a year and a half now. I was finally able to stop my breakouts about 3 months ago and I've been left with red marks, some of which have left physical scars. I can't seem to get these scars to fade, they seem to have stopped healing. On top of that, my acne seems to have starting coming back.
To get rid of this I'm thinking about buying a new cleanser, moisturizer, and exfoliator. I've heard good things about Clean&Clears foaming cleanser for sensitive skin, and Neutrogena's visibly even moisturizer. Anyone have any exfoliant suggestions?
I've also heard AHA/BHA helps a lot to get red of these marks. Which one is better, is there any brand suggestions, and how often should you use AHA/BHA?
Thanks in advance.
It great news that your breakouts have stopped however you need to be patient when it comes to acne scarring and red marks. You really don't want to risk over aggravating your skin and becoming prone to more breakouts. In short, keep it simple, if you have found a regime that has stopped your breakouts keep doing that regime. It is an often occurrence that people may react or breakout to different products so just keep this in mind. Long story short, AHA and BHA are a powerful exfoliants and can be used for red marks when used in a gradual process and a lot of people have had positive results. However, the best treatment for red marks is preventing acne in the future, just consider this before embarking on a new range of products that may potentially aggravate your skin. All the best.
