i heard that the Eucerin renewal moisturizer and the neutrogena multi vitamin thingey recieved rather high ratings in getting rid of red marks, but the problem is we'll never find it in Singapore. =( Have you all heard of the Activa Condalissa scar reducing stick(available at guardians)? Wonder if it helps.

yea, i've got a question to ask, are there any places with a very wide range of acne treatment products? The range of rproducts at Watsons's, guardians, and all those supermarket chains are pathetic. Also, where can i find the eucerin renewal moisturizer? cant seem to find it anywhere

used to have clusters of red marks too, then I went for IPL and it helped quite a bit. As for acne products, I think NSC pharmacy should carry many of these huh?

Well, i'm just like you. I am in sec 4 and next week is my N-lvl... This year when i got back to school, my friends was like... 'Hey, what happen to your face? so many pimples..' I was so stress and feel like slapping those girls even they had a nice skin.. After 9mths of the red marks, rolling scars and pitting scars.. I've still not given up on my skin.

And today, i was walking with my friends which is all girls. I was walking with my stead, and the other was asking me 'did i wash my face? so oily.. ur skin is from bad to worse' after this, i was totally back to my fucking stress mood, I've TRIED TO BE UN-STRESS, BUT WHAT NOW? FUCK IT. everything just sucks. My stead asked isn't those pimples pain? i said no! cos they dun even know what is red marks and PIMPLES! aiya cb one la, but luckily my stead dun comment on my skin.. if not... sure dulan.. But actually my stead did ask me the question b4.. hai.. very cb 1 those pimples.. NOW stress la. knn.. dunno how to study liao la...

cool it dude, it's always like that, just learn to ignore them, hopefully you'll feel less stressed. Some Singaporeans are really inconsiderate, i've had similar experiences too, so you're not the only one. The next time they tell you all those nasty things, just tell them, "So wad, not happy izzit?!" i believe they'll juz shut up after that.

IPL is an abbreviation for Intense Pulse Light. Beams of light from the IPL handpiece are flashed onto the affected area to lighten acne scars.

I went to a clinic at Jurong East to do it, although it's a GP clinic, the doctor provides various types of facial treatments, loads of people go to him for services like IPL, peels and microdermabrasion, etc.

My scars were mostly deep red marks, but they are flat (not dented or pitted type). I had them only at the sides of my face so when I turned my face sideways, it looked as if I got severe acne but actually it wasn't the case, just cuz of those damn red bastards! I got really depressed over it and my mom suggested that I go to this doctor & he recommended IPL. The results were more evident after the 2nd session ( I did 5 in total). The cost..if I remember correctly, it shld b ard $560 for a total of 5 sessions. A bit ex lah but when you got acne, you'll try anything to get rid of it. And this is considered cheap already cuz one IPL session usually cost $1000+ at those private skin specialist clinics.

Other than IPL, I also used a cream and mask made for lightening acne marks. I think these 2 products helped a bit but IPL was still the main factor lah. I remembered reading some posts on another board where people were applying squeezed lemon juice on their face to reduce the redness, maybe can try that also. But I think those with sensitive skin better be cautious cuz lemon juice maybe too strong for the skin and made it even redder instead. Better try on a small area first to see how it work..
