How To Heal All These Wounds?

Recommended Posts

Post Inflammatory Inflammation it is. My acne has left SO much stupid fkn RED marks, ahh. I have used Glycolic acid, BHA (salicylic acid) from Paulaschoice.com both didn't help me but hey, they might help you. It's trial and error, try Azealic acid cream, I am using it atm. The pharmacy sells it or 'drugstore' I think you need a prescription in the U.S if you're from there. I live in Australia, consider doing chemical peels aswell but be super careful and start with a low percent. Lactic acid peel 40 percent by makeup artist choice.com is a good start, don't go for TCA because dark skin is at risk of pigmentation from the peeling process.

So just look into the AHA/BHA range from Paulaschoice.com or Azealic acid cream, I think their your best options.

Hope this was helpful for you.

It just looks like the skin is peeling which reveals more of the marks. Keep the area moisturised, try an aloe vera gel.

before I used Aloe Vera gel, but it stings.... Btw my nose is getting scabs tho...post-482517-0-55701600-1438551895.jpg Edited by skyking6s

I reckon just apply a normal type ofmmoisturiser. Have you been using anything drying on your nose? It looks like it's irritated, don't pick at it. It's not even that bad tbh, try not to stress about it too much.

nah, should I keep using Neosporin ? I didn't do anything, but I live in Vegas maybe that's the reason why my nose is dry , but it's getting better I think Edited by skyking6s

It looks better now, yeah vegas is hot so the heat and sun probes irritated it. Keep using the Neo whatever it's called cream, wear spf moisturiser outside to protect your face. :)

I got one more question, should I keep using the Acne face wash or just soap?

What face wash are you using?

Normal soap will irritate your skin.

Do they sell Azclear foaming wash in Vegas. I use it, it's pretty good.

I use this thing but imma skip the nose part.post-482517-0-90188600-1438565719.jpg

Oh I've used that before. It irritated

my skin, it has some pretty drying ingredients and fragrance. Mabye that's what caused the dry skin on your nose.

Get a gentle facewash. :)

Yeah that Azclear wash is only here in Australia I think, haha

Does your local shops sell Cetaphil. Try the foaming wash by Cetaphil. It has a purple lid.

Yes so true! I used to use Proactiv agessss ago and the company kept sending me new bottles without me agreeing. It's a money scam but it wasn't too bad.

Sometimes shopping centers or are they called Malls in America have little proactiv desks that sell their stuff. Your skin doesn't look like it has cystic pimples, the texture looks healthy.

I have marks like that too. Your cheeks aren't bad at all though, since it's sunny in vegas always wear spf 15 or greater, protecting marks from UV will help them fade faster.

The fading takes time sadly, wish there was a cream that took them away overnight. Oh well

It must be annoying living with the hot weather in vegas atm. Here in Australia it's currently winter but it's not too cold here - I like the hot weather but at the same time I hate it, haha

Even now your skin is not too bad. Try to stay positive, once you find a good skincare routine things should clear up! But seriously though, it isn't that bad, there's more to a person than their skin. Keep smiling ! :) Yeah Australian weather is alright,
