Actually Retin-A Micro is supposed to be very good for redmarks and even very shallow scarring. That's pretty much the only reason my derm keeps me on it. In fact, I don't think it really effects my active acne at all. Which is kind of annoying but oh well.

I started using Cliniques Extra Mild Clarifying lotion (it's actually a toner, alcohol free). It has aloe vera and .5% SA in it, and I just put it on a cotton ball and sweep it across my cheeks. So far, it's been wonderful. It's not sticky, thick, visible, stinging, or irritating. It preps my skin for makeup, too. Try it out!
