redmarks? i dunno

Recommended Posts

I get something that looks like a flat change of a color and i have alot of these marks all over my face. if i look into a dark reflective surface they don't appear so they are extremely flat or something, are these hyperpigmentation marks? and i think i wanna cover them up using foundation, is that a good idea and has anyone tried it?

also more permanent solutions to those marks would be better thanks

If they're marks that are left after acne and they seem to linger, they're probably hyperpigmentation. You can cover them with makeup, and there are quite a few options for treating them. Look around in this forum. Some people (like myself) use extra virgin olive oil. Others use apple cider vinegar. There's also AHA and the tape method, among other things. You have to find the one that works best for you.

Your best bet for a "permanent" solution is to find a treatment that keeps you clear of acne. If you don't get acne, it can't leave red marks. ; )

i have apple cider vinegar, if i drink that but not apply any topically will that still help the red marks fade? or just "detox my liver"?

I don't know, personally, because I don't use apple cider vinegar.

If you go to the main Red Marks Left After Acne page, there's a little magnifying glass icon on the upper right side of the screen that says "Search boards". You can use that to search for "apple cider vinegar" or "acv", and it'll pull up threads that talk about it.
