hey,

have you tried using a AHA moisturizer, that exfoliated my skin like crazy, and the red spots went away pretty fast. don't overload though b/c thats what i did and my skin flaked like crazy.

also, how long have you been on BP? because after a while the stinging and redness goes away

Yeah if you can get your hands on a moisturizer with glycolic acid, that should help fade your redmarks. One is Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion, which has 8%. It's quite strong so be sure not to use too much.

You can try the CSR only at night which is what I do. I allow my face to heal in the day and have started an exfoliation scrub to help with the red marks. My marks seem to be looking better after only 2 days.

Well, I would prefer the red marks over more acne because more acne could lead to more red marks and the possibility for scarring. How is your acne? Do you have any current acne, or just red marks?

i wuz wondering about this...is this moisturizer only to be used after the acne is gone or can it be used while still battling acne to help heal red marks at the same time
