Red Marks Used To Disappear Quickly--What's Wrong?

I have had acne since age 15. I am 30 now. I have dealt with minor breakouts here and there, but I remember, even just one year ago, thinking "Oh, that'll disappear in a few days." My breakouts used to heal so fast, and now they take weeks. Furthermore, the red marks leftover have been there for months and months.

Just in this last year, this healing process has slowed down to almost nonexistant. What is wrong? is it a change in my body chemistry? I have been eating all organic foods, most vegetarian. Drinking tons of water, and taking all the recommended supplements for skin problems.

So why is my skin so slow to heal? Is this a mental condition?

I have started taking MSM powder and Vitamin C. Has anyone noticed an improvement with these supplements?

I take a multi vitamin (centrum or something) would you consider that enough to make a difference?

i dunno...really.. nik of time ... i was taking a mutivitamin as well...but i had to take 3 of them at different times throughout the day and i would always forget...so that wasnt working for me.... at least this way i know im getting everything i want ... and i feel i get the benefits of them...

if the centrum ur taking is potent enough , meaning enough mgs/iu, whatever ...then yes :) ... i feel satisfied with my supplements...i feel they help my skin renew itself/heal itself

I guess I'll religiously continue with these supplements, but it's been a year, and still...these damn red marks!! Argh!
