What should i be applying to my red mark?

Recommended Posts

I have:

Ziana ( contains .025% tretinoin)- my dermatologist prescribed this for the mark but I haven't read about anyone else using it for red marks on here.

Tretinoin .1%

Vitamin E

Vivite Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

Just asking if I have everything I need. Which ones should I be using and when should I be using them?

so yeah my derm also prescribed me ziana. it didn't really stop my breakouts, which i don't get as badly as before (i took antibiotics), so i never really used ziana that much. one thing though is that when i did use ziana for about a week, my skin burned really badly any time it was exposed to direct sunlight. ziana is a retinoid, which supposedly increases cell turnover by making the outermost layer of your skin really thin, so that's probly why it burnt like shit. i have brown PIH not really red so i dunno how useful ziana will be on it, but everyone's skin is different so give it a try

as for vitamin E, i noticed that I get more breakouts when i take it in pill form or put i on my face as a topical. that's just me though.
