The Scars That Mark Me

Recommended Posts

Hello. My name is Valeska. I am an average 17 year old in college instead of high school. This sounds impressive, but it's only because I lack a social life. Ever since seventh grade, I have been picking at my acne. Scissors, needles, fingers, Q-tips, and other such things were what I used to "control" my acne. This never worked.

Now I am covered in scars from head to toe. The dermatologist I saw not long ago was even surprised by the sheer amount of discoloration. So what do I do? How do I react when others call me "stoner" and "emo"? This destruction of my skin is not for attention. I need help... My attempts to heal my wounds with Neosporin, excersise, and eating healthy failed to help.

Is anyone else in this position?

Maybe you should try the AHA provided by this website or go to makeupartistchoice and pick up the radience peel or the salicylic/mandelic acid peel. They always have a daily deal where you can get 15-25% off your purchase! I have a bunch of discoloration too..and I've been using these produts for about three weeks now and I see improvement.

When you say scars, do you mean post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (red marks) or actual acne scars that are pitted? People often confuse the two.
