Does Emu Oil Make Red Marks Darker Before They Get Brighter?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've been using it for a week now, before bed and leaving it on overnight. Does it work as an exfoliant as it contains acids? My red marks have been getting darker and I sometimes feel a tingling sensation (only slightly) when I put the emu oil on. Is this considered normal?

Since it is moisturizing, I struggle to see how it could be an exfoliant also. Yet my marks are darker. Thoughts?

Also currently on accutane.

** Title is meant to say lighter, not brighter.
