Redmarks and blood flow

Recommended Posts

I read somewhere that the reason why a lot of people (me included) find that acne and redmarks on their forehead heal faster than those on the cheek or chin areas is because there is a greater flow of blood in your forehead area (has something to do with your brain being behind there yada yada yada)

So I suppose if this were true increase of bloodflow to chin and cheek areas would mean a decrease in healing time.

I suppose this is why some people swear by ice for healing acne and reducing redmarks.

And perhaps its another factor behind exfoliation...it not only sloughs of top layers of skin but encourages blood flow

Hmmm I think I'll give the ice thing a go

Sorry if this isn't a very helpful post...its kinda me just thinking aloud eusa_whistle.gif
