help a noob get rid of his red marks

Recommended Posts

here's my situation: I used to have moderate acne in the area around my mouth, but now it's a lot better. However, I still do get pimples every once in a while, but they aren't much. But, it looks like I still have a lot of acne because of the red marks. For the past couple months I've been using moisturizer+sunscreen and washing gently twice daily, but my red marks haven't gotten any better.

Now, I've read a little bit about skin peels, and they sound like they might be right for me, but I'm kind of scared to try it. For one, it seems like most of the people who've had success with peels have had acne on their cheeks and foreheads and stuff, and in my experience these areas are less sensitive than the mouth area. I'm really afraid that it will make my skin red and irritated or something, especially since I haven't used any harsh chemicals in a long time. Also, is it okay to do peels if I have still a couple pimples? or should I wait until they're all gone?

For anyone that has been through this, any advice is appreciated, and if you could basically walk me through the steps of using these peels and getting rid of the marks that wouId be awesome, and I know this has been discussed before, but I fail at finding, so any links would be appreciated too.

thanks!
