Am I The Only One...?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else feel like they look like a meth head because of their scars. I feel like when I go to the gas station, store, whatever without makeup on people look at me and think they I am on drugs. God damn I'm just ready for the nightmare to be over with. Can you imagine waking up in the morning, going to the bathroom and brushing your teeth and simply think about the things you need to get done for the day... instead of having your first thought be, EVERY SINGLE MORNING, "my face looks awful."

I saw this chick on intervention and she was a meth addict and her face looked just like mine eusa_wall.gif awkward...

Vitamin E is known for helping scars in general. You can buy it at the store and rub it on your scars. They also may fade over time. It may cost a lot, im really not sure....but they also have laser scar removal. I've never had it but i really want to get it one day if my scars dont fade by the time i get older. Im only 13 after all. Once again i dont know, but i also read online that the laser scar removal has minimal pain as well. Good luck rolleyes.gif

Your not the only one. I've been dealing with acne since I was 12. My acne is allmost gone but I have tons of marks. Try out lemon and ACV.

Nope, not the only one. I could care less about the scars, it's the skin tone, it's so out of whack. I have a dime sized area on my temple that shows me what color my skin should have been (an amazing color by the way), but instead I have red everywhere. I look sun damaged.

Been burning away with acid for a little while now. Might help eventually, but it will never be that natural olive of that little dime-sized spot.

I feel for you, and from what I see everywhere I go, we are the rarity.

I found this article through Google. I hope you find it helpful:

4 Natural Ways to Remove Acne Scars Forever!

You know - I think it is probably easier to get rid of your old habits than those terrible acne scars! I mean, these scars don't just disfigure your face; they can also stay for a long time, which is why they are quite annoying to say the least! So, is there something you can do to remove them quickly and easily? Well, in this article I will tell you about 4 easy and natural methods you can apply in order to get rid of acne scars completely!

I must tell you beforehand: please keep your expectations reasonable! I mean, if you are undergoing an expensive surgery, that is one thing, but when you are using homemade treatments, it would take some time for the scars to heal, so please don't expect overnight cure! The advantage of these treatments is that most of them are inexpensive and free from any kind of side-effects; if you want to get rid of your blemishes but are short on budget, these remedies are what you should use!

1. Tomatoes: You might have eaten those sweet-n-sour tomatoes a dozen times but did you know they can also help you get rid of acne scars? Tomatoes are a rich source of Vitamin A which is why it nourishes and rejuvenates your skin. By helping your skin grow quickly, it manages to remove the scars from your face!

Using tomatoes for acne scar removal is very easy: no, obviously you won’t be eating tomatoes; instead, you should slice a tomato into four pieces, crush them into a pulp, and apply the paste on your face! There is another method you can use which is a bit more complicated: take tomatoes and avocados/cucumbers, grind them together to make a paste out of them, and then apply it on your face as a facemask.

No matter which method you use, it is recommended that you keep the tomatoes on your skin for at least an hour, before washing your face with lukewarm water!

2. Sandalwood: Sandalwood is yet another remedy for quick acne scar removal! Mix sandalwood with rosewater to make a paste, and then apply that paste on your face (assuming that you got acne scars on your face, if you have got the scars in some other area of your body then that is where you should apply the paste instead). Don't wash off the paste from your face too quickly, no matter what! You should keep the sandalwood paste on your face for at least an hour or longer (I would suggest that you apply the paste on your face at bedtime and leave it there overnight), after which you can wash off your face with a mild soap and water!

3. Lemon Juice: The lemon juice treatment for acne scar removal is quite similar to the sandalwood treatment discussed above, in that you need to apply the juice from the crushed lemon on your face at bedtime using a clean cotton swab or cotton ball, and leave it there overnight! The strong acidic and anti-bacterial components of this vegetable would help get rid of the scars and blemishes caused by acne (if drunk, it also detoxifies your body)!

You might experience burning sensation immediately after applying the juice but it usually lasts only for a little while. If the skin burns too much then dilute the juice with water! Please note that daily usage of lemon can cause your skin to go dry, so, in case you notice flakey skin then add a little bit of honey or (if you are applying the juice at bedtime, in which case it would be difficult for you to get sound sleep with honey on your face) milk to the lemon juice!

4. Mederma Gel: Did you know that the Mederma gel is extremely effective in minimizing the ugly appearance of acne scars? Well, that is because this gel is rich in both Aloe Vera and onion! Note that it does NOT remove your acne scars completely, but if you are going to say, a party, then this gel can reduce the visibility of the acne scars on your face. Usage instructions: you can apply it on your face for no more than four times a day; in case you experience any kind of skin irritation, then you should immediately STOP its usage!

Note that these are just some of the methods you can use for acne scar removal; there so many more acne scar removal remedies used widely!
