Try using apple cider vinegar. Its great for getting rid of red/brown marks left after acne. Lots of people here have been using it and have seen very impressive results. Check out Delna's original post for more info: link

Correction, I'm 15 not 13. I'm a sophomore in high school but there are some 14 year olds. I just don't know what to do I'm confused. I'm afraid if I use the aspirin mask it'll just make things worse or irritate my skin. As long as many people say it got rid of their red marks I'll use it!

don't know about aspirin, but SA irritates the hell out of my skin, and vinegar doesn't. I get more breakouts on SA than with vinegar

Ben, I know you love getting technical, so I just thought I'd let you know that aspirin as actually acetylsalicylic acid not SA (I believe it gets converted to SA when taken internally, but thats not important if being applied topically). I'm not sure about direct cost comparisons, but a bottle of a few hundred is only a couple of dollars. Your using only 5-10 pills per mask.

Aspirin works well for me to reduce redness, but I wouldn't use it daily. For me daily was too harsh. Two or three times a week will be fine. Its a great exfoliator.

After reading the wonderful MakeupAlley reviews on the aspirin mask...I decided to give it a try....Oh, how I wanted it to work but, it did nothing for me...

The guys who say ACV worked for them. Do you use it as a toner with half ACV mixed with half water and rub it on the skin using a cotton pad? Do you leave it on overnight? I was just wondering how you did it as it doesn't seem to be helping me. doubt.gif
