fighting red marks and acne at same time

Recommended Posts

Hi. My acne is not that bad and I usually can spot treat it really well with benzamycin. The only problem is that every time I get a pimple it leaves behind a red mark. So now for 1 and a half years I have accumulated a ton of red marks on my chin, which looks a lot worse than my actual acne. So I was wondering if there was any product out there I could use to treat both acne and red marks at the same time? Or anything I could use to treat my red marks while still applying the benzamycin? Thank you so much!

I know what you mean, I agree that red marks can look worse than active acne since they can be such a contrast in color from your complexion. I want to treat my red marks but I am going to get my active acne under control first, because otherwise more hyperpigmentation spots will result from the consistent acne. One product I tried a few years back was hydroquinone, I believe it bleaches the red marks, you may want to look more into it to see if it treats active acne. There is a post about topical application and/or ingestion of tumeric to help with the spots, you might want to check that out too. Good luck!
