  1. So I've learned that getting your vitamins is super important to abolishing acne and red marks. Here's my daily dosage: 10,000 UI of Vitamin A 50 mg of Zinc 500 mg of Vitamin C Two Cod Liver Oil capsules (containing 2500 IU of Vitamin A and 200 IU of Vitamin D3) 100 mg of Vitamin B6 400 IU of Vitamin E Is there anything wrong with this? Also, what has worked for you? Thanks
  2. So I went to Shoppers Drug Mart and picked up Bioderma Cicabio Soothing Repairing Cream. My acne is mostly under control thanks to daily supplements of cod liver oil and zinc (50 mg), so I've just been looking for a product that will get rid of the marks left on my face without breaking me out. They're not exactly red anymore, more so pink. I remembered reading somewhere on here that Bioderma had almost entirely favourable reviews, so I thought I'd give this cream a chance. It's intended for

  5. Do you think they really will? They haven't faded a whole lot since October
  6. I looked it up and saw that it's a spice of some kind, whereabouts would I buy this? And how did you use it, did you use topically?
  7. I've read about Bio-Oil on this board, and I've seen mixed reviews. I'm looking to greatly diminish these red marks by the end of April, so I have 4 months to work with. Has anyone had success with Bio-Oil Does it cause breakouts? Will it show results in 4 months? Thank-you marks.htm marks.htm
  8. Okay, so I have a lot of marks leftover from my severe acne breakout last summer. As of now, my acne is mild. I get new ones maybe once a week, but when I do they're very small and disappear within two days. My goal is to reduce these marks by at least 75% by the end of April. Completely removing them would be lovely, but diminishing them significantly would be great as well. Currently I wash my face every morning and night with oats, which I swear by since it exfoliates my skin nicely wi
  9. I find that washing my face with oatmeal helps in fading, and it won't break you out either. It's a very gentle exfoliator and it's anti-inflammatory so after a while your redness will go away too. I'm starting college with acne too, so I can completely relate. Here's a video that I used to get a good idea of what to do: I've never looked back, I use it every morning, night, and if my skin is looking a little oily in the middle of the day. It's relatively harmless so cleaning with it
  10. I think that's a really cool way of looking at it I was thinking to myself not too long ago that as much as I would kill to have clear skin, I guess in some way it "happened for a reason" and has actually made me tougher, and empathetic to the plights of other people dealing with their serious insecurities and imperfections. Still frustrating as hell of course... but maybe some character building is a good thing. Now that I've accepted this, can I have my clear skin now?
  11. I'm a girl, so when I see a guy with acne or acne scars, I feel so much empathy. I work a retail job at a hardware store so when a young man comes to my information desk I always look him in the eye and give him a big smile Lately my acne has really changed how I feel about dating and such in general, I almost feel like I'd rather date a guy going through it as well because we'd have a mutual understanding, even if it's not that pretty haha.
  12. You said you're using Diane-35, I was curious because I'm using Cyesta-35 which is supposed to be essentially the same thing! I noticed my acne has gotten worse but maybe it'll get better after a few more months of it. Do you like it?
  13. I start college tomorrow, I'd still like to know what other girls with moderate acne/red marks do when they have to go to the gym as far as makeup is concerned!
  14. The worst part is worrying about my roommate seeing me without makeup It'll be me waking up extra early and waiting til the last possible minute to do my nightly ritual. I kind of warned her I had a "bit" (hahaha) of a breakout and I'll probably be a bit of a "princess" in the bathroom morning and evening, so I hope she isn't completely disgusted.
  15. This is a little depressing, but has anyone thought about someday when we're clear, married, and having kids (if that's what you're planning someday)? My parents both had acne as teenagers, my mother's being moderate severe. So lucky me and my brother, we inherited those blessed genes and now here I am. I'm scared my daughter is going to have to face the same challenges, actually terrified.
