How long will it take red marks to clear (pics)

Recommended Posts

I'm 20, and my acne seems to worsen as I age. Growing up, I had a few breakouts here and there, but they clear up. However, when I turned 18, my skins condition was at its worst. I break out all the time and it's really hurting my self esteem. I just want clear skin again....

Im female bodybuilder so I eat extremely healthy and I avoid dairy products as it just seemed to worsen my skin.

Is my acne severe as I think it is? Or will they clear up beautifully with months? So far, all I see are inflamed red marks and a few purple spots on my cheeks and chin.

1 to 2 years. Try a thorough cleansing product called "Noxzema". It helped me control my acne. Just be glad the scars aren't permanent. Continue taking good care of your face and letting acne heal on its own.

No steroids, right?
I would recommend washing your face immediately after gym and consider bentonite clay :) good luck

Use creams with 

Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)

(I used Noviderm Boreade LP cream and in 4-5 months I was pretty much clear from all the red marks)
