  1. Yes, they can work... As you know, The tomato contains lycopene and this is a natural anti-inflammatory. Pimples are infections, they are red and thick and sometimes even painful. The lycopene from the tomatoes can soothe your skin and reduces inflammation. In addition, Tomatos contain an overload of vitamin C and A. These vitamins can give your skin a healthy glow. Also, tomatos have astringent properties, this means your skin will feel a little tighter after use. I used to make a mask with fr
  2. Look for the next sun filtering agents in a sunscreen: (I have done a lot of research in the past about this subject) Tinosorb M or Tinosorb S Why? Because these sun filtering agents protect against UVA and UVB, have low risk in skin allergies, are very stable and our body hardly absorbs it. Sadly enough, sunscreens that use these sun filtering agents are relatively expensive. Other good sun filtering agents are: Mexoryl XL Has the same properties as Tinosorb M and Tinosorb S, only less Stabl
  3. This red spots are usually hyperpigmentation. A 0.5 mm dermaroller can improve pigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is kind of superficial most of the times, so that's why a short needle is sufficient.
  4. Yes that's true. It was a bad example. What i'm trying to say is, if someone has a handsome face or just a nice face, acne scars don't destroy that.
  5. I think jojoba oil will be better for your acne prone skin because it breaks down sebum in plugged-up pores. The similarity between jojoba oil and human sebum is what does the trick.
  6. I used the lightstim Acne light for a while... It uses Blue and Red Led, because some researches have shown that the combination of Blue and Red is more effective for acne than only Blue. Blue light can lessen acne because it's close to the sterilizing UV-A. For me, It did help only a TINY bit.... But it took too much time and effort for so little improvement, so i stopped it. It's now in my closet somewhere. But that it didn't work for me, don't have to mean that it also wouldn't work for you.
  7. I don't think acne scars make somebody ugly. To give an example: Megan Fox. She has acne scars... And she's beautiful
  8. I agree with californiaEstie. Honey is a great ingredient to put on your face. I use Manuka Honey from the healthshop and i love to mix it with yoghurt. Yoghurt acts as a mild exfoliator. I can really recommend this mask. Also nice to eat though
  9. yes i know this feeling. I'm always happy when the sun doesn't shine. But i am a female, they can wear make up, males can't really... No that isn't true... Ofcourse they can! But most of them don't want that. Don't give up.
  10. I think your type of scars may benefit from Saline Injections. You could just try it and see what happens. I just logged in on this forum, after lurking here for a week or so, because i also have acne scars (what a suprise) and i am hoping, like everyone, to find a way to improve them... First i'm going to give the Saline injections a try, and if it doesn't help, i'm going to look for the more ''heavier options.'' I suggested them to you, because your scars are not that severe (neither are mine
