Ok I have been suffering from ACNE for about 8-9 years now, I have had my fair share of ups an downs an made plenty of mistakes along the way. One of the biggest mistakes I made growing up trying to fight my acne was tanning, it made the redness go away an evened out my skin tone however over the years I realized I was doing more harm than good but the damage had already been done.

For the past year or so I have gotten my oily skin under control an I did not breakout at all really. However whenever I looked in the mirror I see these patches of redness an almost a red mask surrounding my face. It is oval in shape an pretty much goes from the top of my forehead down to my chin. Looking in the mirror however I realized my skin tone was very uneven an I did not know what to do about it.

I just got back from vacation an even though I applied tons of sunscreen I got burnt to a crisp which was not good at all. The past couple of weeks I have been having minor breakouts but worse of all my skin tone is completely botched even more an I am scared that their is nothing I can do about this. I will accompany some pictures so everyone can see what it looks like. I have been fighting ACNE for so long I just want my skin to look as nice as possible an ITS ALWAYS SOMETHING...whether I break out or my skin tone is all blotchy...anyway I would appreciate any an all advice on perhaps treatments or things I can do to help even out my skin tone. KEEPING IN MIND I HAVE EXTREMELY SENSITIVE SKIN AN EXFOLIATING IS TOO MUCH FOR ME


This was before I went on vacation as you can see the mask of redness is much more visible here


This was after getting back from vacation its harder to see the blotchiness but its still there


A front shot once again the redness is still there just masked better by some sun
