Can you describe what's going on with your skin?

Look like a little scarring and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, I hope I said that right. Jojoba Oil and AHA supposedly help speed up the healing process of hyper-pigmentation. But either way, for both it will just take time. The important thing to do now, is to stay on the regimen and prevent future break outs that could cause more pigmentation and scars.

The only thing sunscreen will help with is the appearance of those marks. Usually if you are going to be out in the sun, the marks will get more bright, but the sunscreen will help it so that doesn't happen.

I'm not an expert on this, but there is many threads on this in the red marks forum, here is just one thread:

Anyway, jojoba oil and AHA are 2 things that seem like they are fading away my red marks.

Actually, sunscreen doesn't help with the appearance of red marks. Being in the sun will temporarily make your face look better by 'blending' your skin tone to look more even. Being in the sun for too long,however,could lead to a breakout (propaganda? :rolleyes: ). AHA will help in getting rid of those redmarks. Goodluck.
