Whilst on accutane there is nothing that you really can do, as your skin is very sensitive. The best healer for red marks is time! But use the search function up the top and you'll find many methods.

these are all good for helping fade redmarks:

- aloe vera

- AHA (such as glycolic acid)

- exfoliation (any type of scrub such as the C&C Blackhead Clearing Scrub)

- tape method (http://acne.org/messageboard/viewtopic.php?t=1320&highlight=tape)

- vinegar and lemon method (http://acne.org/messageboard/viewtopic.php?t=4885)

just do a search on any one of these. personally, i would recommend aloe vera as it not only helps with redmarks but is a great moisturizer also, and is good for sensitive skin. just make sure you buy 100% aloe vera

Even Aloe Vera shouldn't be used whilst on Accutane! It makes red marks fade SLOWER!!
