Hi dearies,

I started the regimen on 28th October last year and I have to say, I'm extremelyyyyyyy happy with the results - I love Dan's BP Gel and the Eucerin Skin Renewal(both which costed me a bomb to buy online!) and that Neutrogena's Benzoyl Peroxide stinks, literally. After a month of applying it everyday, I had to hold my breath every single time - ithe smell's so disgusting I wanted to puke. Okay, I digress.

The thing is, are there any particular foods that help with acne scars? I mean red marks. It's very sad to have your mom tell you about your 'pimples', and when you tell her it's not pimples, she gets angry. :( Oh, she never got acne before, soooooooo. And everyone believes that my consumption of chili is making my acne worse. Does chili really do that?

My questions are :

1. What are the foods that help with the fading of acne scars/red marks? Tomatoes?

2. Does chili, which I'm a big fan of, make my acne worse?

Thank you! :lol2:

lol if tomatoes did clear red marks it'd very ironic! Im not sure about foods that help red marks, but a moisturiser with aha will help loooooooooads :)

I would think any vegetables would make acne better. Depends how you cook them. Steaming or boiling would be preferred.

There is no link between diet and acne, let alone red marks or scars. Alpha hydroxy based lotions will eventually take care of those red spots, but it will take quite a while. I'm on my third year and the red marks are mostly gone, but there is still some trace left. I use that Eucerin lotion with mild alpha hydroxy acids.

i think overall good health would help your skin heals itself faster and make you look and feel better in general...so lots of fruit and veggies!
