Hey ALL!

I honestly and totally forgot about this site! :-S hmm, guess that's a good thing right? *knock on wood* everything is still great, skin wise. Wish i could say the pink marks have completely gone but they're still there - fading...sllowwlllyyy! However, the main thing is no more bloody acne, they have seized and i'm SUPER happy about it! smile.png

This is a fairly recent pic of me, i'm wearing a bit of loose powder and a little goes a long way! i mean, it manages to cover up the remaining pink marks nicely cry.gif where as before i had to wear heavy makeup.

Dunno what else to say, but if any of yas have questions please feel free i guess...

xo

    I know what i want NEXT christmas..

    you look AMAZING.

    did you end up with any shallow scarring besides the redmarks? if so, have you noticed if they have improved at all since time has passed?

    i ask b/c i never scarred before, but since I've gotten clear (from Accutane, I'm on month 5), i can see i have some shallow scarring. my derm insists that they will "fill in" but i'm skeptical...

    anyway, you seriously look great. :D

    Hey :dance: thanks hun!! yeah if ya look at my 2nd last pics u can see some shallow scarring. Pic doesnt show it well but they are there!! and the so called "redmarks" THEY are my pitted scars! even when the redness goes in time im sure the indentation will still be there. You've got scarring now cause the inflammation has gone down, u dont have that inflammed pimple filling it in... thats what happened to me once acne started clearing. i sure HOPE they "fill in" but i highly doubt it. i'll be looking into some kinda procedure for mine. Good luck with it =)

    That's awesome. Great job and best of luck to ya. I got a quick question though - while you were on tane, did you experience any redness and facial blushing?

    Nah i didnt experience neither one of the two! If anything i'd be more red in the face comin out of the hot shower, where as i never used to. I hear it's normal to experience redness. dont stress!

    I was just checking out your whole album/journey and now I see this picture I am soooo impressed! you really look great and your face is looking so smooth. This is my last month of my first session of accutane, and I look pretty clear sometimes I get one red spot but they go away after one week. Btw do you have tips for me how I can fade away red spots... like you said... it's fading sooooooooo slowly...

    Congrats again with your good looking facial skin!

    Thanks buddy :D Its going well..

    Fade away left over red marks/pigmentation u mean?? ummm.. not really apart from keeping it reasonably moisturised avoiding oily products and products with fragrance etc.. ALSO, for 2 months now ive been using an Even Skin Tone Serum by ULTRAcuticals, cost me $75 for like 50ml or something... i reckon that has helped a bit.. its only applied at night, some mornings when i wake up my marks look like theyre not even there, its so light!! other mornings theyre visible! but yeah.. something to give a go... *shrug*. With the serum, it has thing light stingy/tingly sensation on my skin when applied (which goes away) and i feel as thought it's good or my face and keeping bacteria off it. I was told it acts as a very light peel too.. so it has the capabilities of reducing the look of scarring.. but i havent noticed TOO much of that.
