  1. Hi, I was able to see the pictures by copying and pasting the link into my bar. And as I am on day 3 of my own 15% TCA peel, I shall monitor yours with interest also
  2. I have red marks similar to yours and I have seen real and noticeable improvements with weekly salicylic and glycolic acid peels
  3. Well without information on the type of peel there's not much information we can give, I'm guessing it was a lactic or glycolic however. You shouldn't be peeling for 3 weeks after those types of peels, with glycolic and lactic there shouldn't be a 'snake like' peeling off, but some flaking. But again, would need more info on the type of peel
  4. Well I would definitely get control of the acne before you attempt to fade the marks, as new spots can hamper your progress as regards the marks. In your regimen I can see nothing that would specifically deal with the marks, so I would suggest introducing an AHA toner or moisturiser - see how your skin reacts to it - and then progress into glycolic/lactic/salicylic peels if that's something you would be interested in. Alternatively, you could look into any of the suggestions on this red marks bo
  5. I can very much relate to this. Although my acne is largely under control, you wouldn't know if because of all the marks. It's difficult to really be confident and enjoy yourself when you are the only one in a group of people with beautiful skin who has problems. I can't wait till I can perhaps join the beautiful skin group
  6. Generally excessive sun exposure can cause pigmentation issues, so you should really be using physical protection (hat) or chemical (15+ SPF sunscreen), or preferably, both !
  7. If the marks are quite recent, I would leave them be for a few months and see how they fade naturally. They look quite inflamed, and I would be cautious before trying any peeling until they turn into a more brownish colour. Overall though I wouldn't worry ALL that much, but they will take time to fade - possibly leaving some indentations in the skin.
  8. I've had my red marks for 1.5 - 2 years, and I have to admit they have faded quite a bit, but no-way near to the level that I would be happy with as they are still very noticeable. Although I'm hopeful that in the next few months or so I can start to make some real progress using various peels
  9. Instead of your usual cleanser with water, in an emergency you could use cleansing wipes.
  10. I know that EVOO is used by some to help fade red marks, but I was wondering what exactly in it helps with that process?
  11. Really interesting that you've noticed really good results on the older marks compared to the newer ones - personally I don't get many spots these days and so have no new marks but plenty of quite old ones. With a 12.5% 2 layered TCA was there a "snake" like peelings, or more of a flaking off?
  12. Not tried the product personally, but it may have a greasy formula. Also, if you're not used to BP it can be overly drying, and your skin will compensate by producing more oil, make sure you're using a decent moisturiser
  13. Haven't personally tried it myself, but been looking at the site for a while and am interested in something like this : http://www.bravuralondon.co.uk/index.php?m...;products_id=28
  14. If it's just for one day, I wouldn't worry about it too much and just have fun
  15. Heya, it's good to see that you're progressing in increments, you should get better results For my own personal curiosity/nosiness - how long did you wait between applying the layers, and do you start moisturising immediately, or leave it 1 or 2 days? Also, how severe were/are your red marks, and hopefully you'll inform us as to how much they noticeably faded Good luck
