A Failed Attempt to Foil Those Beastly Red Marks!

Recommended Posts

Well I had a sort of brainwave the other day. I'd noticed that sun gives a temporary improvement in red marks, yet have been told that in the long term it is very bad for acne and red marks. So I figured that I could use one of those moisturisers that give a fake tan after five or so days. I thought the worst that could happen would be to darken the pigmentation of my skin slightly and therefore make the red marks appear lessened.

However I tried it once and was disheartened by the darkening of my red marks the next day so promptly gave up. Maybe I should have tried it for a longer period of time I guess. I used this Dove Moisturiser with inbuilt tanning thing.

Anyway, that's all :)

I don't think it's the tan that helps, but the actual activity of the sun on your face. Kills bacteria or produces vit D or some other such thing.
