  1. so i've got mostly red/dark marks left, and i'm using tretinoin cream/cetaphil moisturizer at night and duac/cetaphil in the mornings. i was wondering if it was safe to use a tinted moisturizer to even out my skin tone, like maybe the one from clinique? something like this: http://www.clinique.com/product/1599/15635/Makeup/Foundations/Moisture-Surge-Tinted-Moisturizer-SPF15/index.tmpl i'm a guy so i don't want to use full-on makeup, just something light to make the marks less noticeable.
  2. i have never smoked cigarettes nor marijuana and get red marks on cheeks only everyone is different, but i think it is just wishful thinking just trying to randomly pinpoint the cause of red marks. if you are convinced then you should give it a shot and stop smoking
  3. i have oily skin, which i think is a result of my skin being very dry and then it overproduces on oil. after cleansing and moisturizing i find it less oily i'd look around for some topics on shaving. your pimples seem to be around your jawline areas which is why i brought it up. a straight up electric razor might be too harsh. when i use one my cheeks feel very rough afterward and i feel like it makes me break out (though i only need to shave like once every month ! i really don't grow much
  4. you look fine do you have dry/oily skin? you might want to try some moisturizer also, how do you shave? you might be irritating your skin
  5. how often were you in the sun and did you use sunscreen?
  6. lol i think you misunderstood - i STILL have red marks from 5 months ago. they were dark red but are fading to a pinkish-red though they are still very noticeable. but it is getting better, and you just have to have faith that things will be ok i've tried: apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, alpha hydroxy acid, egg white mask, drinking tons of water/lemon water, eating healthy, vitamin supplements, all with little to no success. at this point i'm still trying treatments but i don't
  7. it's because nobody has an answer. i've tried a bunch of different things and nothing seems to work are you asian? it looks that way from your picture. i am asian and i've had very red marks on cheeks for 5 months. it seems like forehead/nose/chin/etc. all fade in a few days to a few weeks, but cheek marks last a long long time. i've looked through a TON of posts in this forum and it seems to be a trend, red marks on asian cheeks are nigh on impossible to get rid of don't let neverfor
