Mild Acne - Prone to Scarring - Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have anglo-Asian skin type (so I'm olive-brown) and suffer from mild acne, that is that I break out with 2/3 spots every couple of weeks or so.

More annoying than the spots themselves are the scars that are often left behand when they disappear. Perhaps scarring is too harsh a description, but my skin often blemishes/darkens in spots (both cheeks) after a spot has gone.

While I've conceded the darkened/blemish patches may not ever disappear, I definitely need do something to better control and prevent my acne breakouts.

At the moment I just use a:

Facial wash: The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator

Moisturizer: REN Ultra Moisturizer Comfort Plus

And at night, I just rinse my face with water and apply DUAC BP 2.5% cream/gel to the spots themselves.

The system obviously isn't working.

So after doing a bit of research, I thought of doing this:

Facial wash: Anthony Logistics Glycolic Facial Cleanser

Moisturiser: Biotherm Homme Aquapower Moisturiser

Spot treatment: Duac BP 2.5% (in the mornings)

Night treatment: Some sort of RETIN-A

Any help!?

LOL. I wash my face everyday and prune my nails regularly.

I just have mild breakouts, but they always seem to leave dark patches/scarring/blemishes...

Just want to know of some good products and routines I could do? I have combination/oily skin..
