Reducing Red Marks/not Picking! - Progress So Far

Recommended Posts



So I have had acne for almost a decade including the cystic type when I hit my 20s which was when I also started picking my skin which has been for 7 years. My skin has lots of red marks and I have devised a skincare routine to try and reduce these and also stop picking. From the following photos I think there has been a bit of improvement in just a week.


Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

Epitheliale A.H. Cream - If I go out I skip this and use Mineral Powder foundation which has SPF.


Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy Cleanser by Una Brennan

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

Epitheliale A.H. Cream

Every 2-3 weeks

Philosophy in-home vitamin c/peptide peel kit

And probably most importantly - NO PICKING AT FACE!!! Alas I did have a slight relapse as evident from the left side of my face but for me to be able stop was a miracle. Plus I have the occasional spot and am able to leave these alone!!!! I really think being able to do so can be partly attributed to no longer giving a f**k about my skin and starting yoga i.e. focusing on something else completely.

Anyway I'll keep posted on any further progress!
