redness confusion...help

Recommended Posts


i had and still have a little bit of acne left on my face, but at no point was it ever REALLY that bad. However my face is really really discolored and extremely blotchy. Even in areas that my acne never existed, my face has turned a redder/dark brown to me. It's just right beneath my eyes that still has my normal skin color and hue.

I'm controlling my acne with a clindoxyl gel (2% BP i think) and so far it's worked. However i'm fearing that it's preventing my face to return to its original color. So now i'm only using the BP for spot treating and i'm using a wash called vichy normaderm that's supposed to help with my complexion. Every night i wash with dove, then apply the vichy normaderm, then wash that off, then spot apply the BP, then go to sleep. WHen i wake up my face is EXTREMELY oily so i never moisturize at night time.

I also can't seem to get my face to look smooth anymore. It feels smooth, but it's pretty obvious that the actual texture isn't smooth. Again, it's only beneath my eyes that still retains my oringal and normal looking skin.

what do you guys recommend??? should i do some lactic acid peels?? get some emu oil??? aloe vera?? vitamin K??
