In a desperate attempt to get rid of my 6 month old red marks, I have totally over exfoliated my face. I was using mandelic acid 2x daily, manual exfoliation 2x daily, 6 weekly lactic acid peels, and copper peptides 2x a day. My skin was looking really rough and wrinkled. For the last month, I've only used Emu Oil 2x daily and Pure Demings Intense Gel 1x a week , but it doesn't seem to be getting much better. I probably over-exfoliated for about 3 months and for have been using strong actives for about 6 months.

So my question is, has anyone else experienced this? If so, how long did it take for your face to return to normal? I was hoping a break for a month would do the trick, but it doesn't seem to be.

PS: I'm 30 years old and I'm also taking Zinc, Vitamin C, MSM, Primrose Oil, Multi, probiotic, and drinking green smoothies a few times a week.

I want my red marks gone, but I don't want to have dry/wrinkled skin as a result.
