acne 004.jpg

Before I go to bed I cleanse my skin with ordinary soap. After that I use a product named stioxyl which contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide. In the morning I cleanse my skin with ordinary soap again and after that I use a moisturization product (no Benzoyl Peroxide in the morning.)

Although it doesn't seem to help, anyone knows how to bleach the red marks?

    depends how long have you been on the regime?

    Almost a week. Although I doubt that Benzoyl Peroxide will bleach those red marks. Hmm but I'm going to continue with this procedure and see how it goes.

    Maybe I should have posted this album in the scar section.

    I have some pretty bad red marks too. A LONG time ago, a poster on this board had one of her skin care experts recommend that she use a simple formula to clear her red marks. She posted it on the boards and people went wild because many of them were seeing great results. I tried it myself and had a nice experience but unfortunately, it couldn't clear all of mine up. Still it helped. For one thing, it flushed most of the color out of them so that now they're almost brown. I think that's better because they don't look like acne marks. The regimen was based on using everyday products, specifically apple cider vinegar and an egg white/lemon mask at night. Here's what her plan entailed:

    MORNING:

    1. Wash your face with a sensitive skin soap.

    2. Exfoliate your face with a baking soda paste. Make the paste by adding a few pinches of warm water onto some baking soda, turning it into a paste and then gently srubbing your face with it.

    3. After washing off the baking soda paste, apply apple cider vinegar to tone. Do so by starting out with a weak concentration, i.e., one tablespoon of ACV combined with eight tablespoons of water. Let the ACV sit on your face for 10 minutes before washing it off. As you continue the regimen, gradually make your way down to a 1:1 ACV/water concentration.

    4. If you're still acne prone, apply your acne cream.

    5. Apply your moisturizer.

    NIGHT:

    1. Wash your face with a sensitive skin soap.

    2. Take one egg white and whisk it with a sqeeze of lemon until it becomes frothy. Apply this to your face to form a natural protein mask. Wash off after 15 minutes.

    3. Apply your acne cream

    Lots of people had results with this, maybe it can help you.

    Thanks for the information. I do wonder if spending more time in the sun would help me?

    The best thing to do is let the "time" bleach it itself? Because some of the marks will fade as the time goes right?

    stay awayyyyy from the sun when it comes to red marks/spots!!! once theyre brown its all over. brown spots take forever to leave if not ever. make sure u keep em nice n red and speak to ur derm, try diff things. Basically.. as long as theyre still red/pink, u still have a chance in gettin rid of them to some extent.

    I'll do my best :| I think the only way to get rid off the brown ones is to let the laser beam do its job :dance:
