16 years old (scars)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My name is Ken. I'm 16 years old and from singapore, and got breakout last year. I didn't squeeze my acne because i know it will left scars behide. After 1 month, i got alot of red marks and i don't know what to do. I brought acne treatment(can't remember the brand) to treat those red marks. I was stupid doing that. My skin is getting worse each time, i really don't know what to do. My brother brought some scrubs facial. I

use them. It make my red marks worse and also have shallow scarring! Oh my god, I really need help. What can i do? Oh and by the way, my skin is very very oil.

* What i do everyday now *

1. Drink alot of water and fruit juices.

2. Spash water in the morning and afternoon.

3. Wash my skin using cleanser at night only.

4. Exercise like jogging example.

5. Eating fish oil which including Vitamin A and D.

Please help me, Thanks in advance.

[email protected] is my e-mail if you could email suggestions there or here would be fine.

Some things you might want to try (not all at once):

- Vita K for blotchy skin

- the tape method of exfoliation

- products with hydroquinone

- lactic acid peel

If you do a search on any of these topics you'll find a lot of advice/opinions from others on these methods.

He is 16, i think these procedures might be a little on the expensive side and should be used as a last resort. Not all people are well off and can do these sorts of things.

The list you gave is good and should be adhered to. Water cleans out toxins.

For more info on acne treatments and routines go to the regimen forum and/or clearskin4me forum.

Its never worked for me, so thats my own opinion and i have a right to it.

Cuz ive tried it.

and non ablative lasers are like 1000 dollars for 4 treatments

and since it regenerates skin and hes young

it shouldnt be used as a LAST RESTORT

i had my scars at 15

anything cheap doesnt work

neither does microbrasion

i think i know what im talking about

thanks!

Actually the Nothing method is good. It's natually curing although is slow.

when you stop taking fruit etc...your complexion goes back to the way it was.

its just temporary improvment.

and ive been their done that with these cheap improvments

i havent tried vinegear cuz i cant! so i didnt say anything about that.

narko, since it's just red marks you are working on... and being 16, I will assume you have limited funds, I suggest the following:

1. vinegar method

OR

2. Scotch tape method.

My shallow scars are healing quite fast (im 17), I just drink about 3000ml of water a day and use the tape method. My scars have improved by about 50%.
