I use NeoStrata toning solution (8% glycolic acid) to fade away my red marks and it works really well.

Your regimen looks good. The MAC Cleanse-off oil doesn't clog pores? (I'm scared of anything that says it has OIL in it.) I've never tried the vinegar/baking soda or the aspirin mask.

Truthfully, I think all you need is patience. How long have you been using the Diacneal? I have heard that it's a fantastic product for getting rid of marks (NB to readers: Diacneal contains retinaldehyde and glycolic acid).

Since your skin is still getting used to the Diacneal, I would NOT add any more acids to your routine (the aspirin mask = salicylic acid = bad idea). The ACV/baking soda could be OK, but don't scrub!!!! Retinaldehyde makes your epidermis quite fragile, be GENTLE with it.

I use a retinol product myself, and I love it. But I have learned (the hard way) that when you are using highly active products, patience is key -- and sometimes less is more.
