  1. Thanks. Will changing my diet actually help clear up the redness and the scars? I don't think a diet change could be that effective, can it?
  2. Picture from today: http://i6.minus.com/jhIrFeVcURihb.JPG Can somebody help me identify what type of acne I have, and how I can get my skin cleared up at this point? I also notice I have some scarring and I have no idea how to treat that either. Please help, thanks.
  3. Thanks for your input. You're right. I still have a small amount of active acne left, and I'm working on clearing that up. Once I finally clear up my remaining acne, then what is the next step afterwards? Treating the scars first, or treating the redness? Thanks for the post. Can you please explain what "Fractional co2" is? I really don't have any idea about any of these procedures. It's a type of laser resurfacing treatment that is used to heal acne scars. I see, thanks. How effective is

  5. Here are some pictures of how my face currently looks. As you can visibly see, I have mild scarring, as well as pretty moderate redness all over my cheeks. (Although the redness isn't very visible in the photos) My active acne has mostly cleared up at this point, and now I'm just stuck with these annoying scars, and the redness everywhere. I just don't know where to go from here. What are my treatment options at this point?
  6. Is it still important to regularly cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin with products even if you don't have acne? Can it prevent wrinkles, for example? What are the main benefits?
  7. At this point, I am getting so tired mentally and physically with dealing with my acne and my skin in general, that I am now considering getting a professional procedure done to get rid of my terrible skin and fix it. Can somebody please tell me what the available treatments are nowadays for acne? The only one I can think of is "Chemical Peels".. What other treatments are there, and how effective/costly are they? Please provide me a list I would really appreciate it.
  8. I've had this blemish on my face ever since I was a child. I'm assuming it's some sort of birthmark/mole. If it is, can somebody tell me what options there are to have it cosmetically removed? I don't want to cover it up. Just removed. It bothers me and it's considerably noticeable and I want to know what options I have for something like this. Thank you very much.
  9. That won't work sadly. I was on Tazorac for 2 years as well as another topical cream and it managed to clear up most of my acne, but now all these scars still remain..
  10. Red marks mainly, with some slight indent scars. Here is a recent photo.
  11. Awesome post, thank you! But I'm confused.. If Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, then what is the difference between that and an ordinary cleanser? Don't cleansers also remove dead skin cells that clog pores? Unless the cleanser has exfoliating stuff in it (like exfoliating beads or grains) then all they do is remove the dirt and grime and open your pores. Youll want a separate cleanser and a separate exfoliate. Dont exfoliate more than 3 times a week. Cleanse twice a day every day. Pat dry.

  13. Thanks for your input. Yeah, that's what confuses me. Why do so many moisturizers contain SPF? Since when is that even necessary? Moisturizers are simply used to give smoothness to your skin and prevent it from drying out.. Not sure where sun protection comes into play.. Makes no sense to me.
  14. Why is it that some moisturizers do different things? For example, some moisturizers have SPF protection, some even out skin tone, some claim to even reduce visible redness on skin, so how can I figure out which one to buy if so many moisturizers do different things? I thought moisturizers are just supposed to make your skin feel soft. Why do they even reduce redness or even out skin tone in the first place? That's what confuses me the most. Aren't moisturizers solely designed to simply smoothe
