Its about time there was a large poll of people's red marks treatments, it would actually help alot of people if you could please vote

Note that the products listed are all ones that can be purchased OTC

and although there IS treatment reviews;

- it takes long to see + compare the results between the treatments

- most treatments are for acne only so you have to read all the reviews to find parts about red marks

- this poll shows the best that you had, whilst the treatment reviews anyone can just vote for as many treatments they have had

ill add any other choices that are popular

I was going to start trying Olive Oil, but im scared about the clogging of pores, does olive oil do this? and i noticed your from england, so am i, and if you have to try bio oil seriously it works really well twice a day for red marks.

ive recently come up with a theory that any oil massaged into the skin helps red marks, because of maybe the nutrients in the oil, but MAINLY because blood circulates to the skin faster and can deliver the essential nutrients and amino acids needed for repair and growth? anyone else think this?

I was going to try bio oil but read some reviews about it not being very good for some people and having barely any impact and then i started reading up on olive oil and nearly everyone whos tried it seems to of had results not to mention its a hell of a lot cheaper. Anddd olive oil has no pore clogging ingredients so its safe :) also you start seeing results within a few days.

Basically yeah, you can add a few drops to your moisturizer if you want andd use extra virgin olive oil. Though you can use it how you wish really, even just rubbing it on using a cotton ball will do which is what i have been doing but i think i will add some to my moisturizer at a night time.

Try reading through this thread if you want some more info or ideas about it:

Dan's AHA is the best thing I've used. Everything heals really fast.

Please vote so that people can see the success of Dan's AHA in the poll :)
