  1. These type of scars may never go away. Just live life the best way you can. I'm sure a lot of girls will still chase after you despite your small skin flaw which isn't a big deal at all.
  2. Use benzoyl peroxide to get rid of acne bacteria and then AHA glycolic acid to fade your red marks. In 4 months time, you will see a big difference after using the AHA. Also, avoid sugary drinks and stick to water during your skin therapy. Best of luck.
  3. One word: stress. I bet it's one major factor to your breakouts. Try to relax, listen to music, meditate, exercise, spend time with your friends, or play with your pets to reduce some stress levels. Best of luck, you'll be fine.
  4. Your acne looks like a mild case to me. Just keep on following the regimen and drink lots of water. That should do the trick. Cheers.
  5. It sounds like your skin isn't used to the BP yet which is alarming since you've been on the regimen for 3-4 months. Make sure you gradually increase your dosage. A sudden increase will cause your skin to panic especially if they are not used to the BP. Also, you should mix jojoba oil with your moisturizer before you apply it. When I first used jojoba oil, it also made my face red but I stuck to it and it eliminated the redness on my face after several days of using it.
  6. No, you should only apply BP twice a day and no more or less than that. Just apply moisturizer if needed.
  7. Try mixing jojoba oil with your moisturizer and the redness should fade. I had the same problem too and people would ask me why my face was red. Unfortunately, the red marks are there to stay but if you get lucky, they will fade in several years.
  8. If you're going to use AHA, you don't have to use the jojoba oil as the AHA will take care of the dryness. Just mix the AHA (pea sized) with your moisturizer (the general amount you use) and then apply it to your face. I've used both jojoba oil and AHA in the past but I didn't like the shiny/greasy look on my face so I stopped mixing them. You should only use jojoba oil until your face is used to the AHA, then you can use AHA by itself, even without a moisturizer after 3 weeks or so.
  9. Aaron is correct. Jojoba oil is the best solution to your problem. It worked for me, when my moisturizer couldn't get the job done. I don't use it anymore though as AHA+ takes care of the flakiness for me now.
  10. I use the Olay 15 spf all day lotion for sensitive skin. You have to use it while under the regimen if you plan to go outside or else, the sun rays will damage your skin.
  11. I think you should wait a week or two before you start using it. And when you first use AHA, you have to use a pea size and then work your way up just like you did with BP. Last week, I tried one pump on one side of my face and another pump on the other side and I looked like I got sun burnt. :/ Not cool so I only apply one pump now every 3 days although I've been using the AHA for almost 4 weeks now. Just don't use too much at first.
  12. I know how hard it is to feel insecure because of your looks but you're only 21 once, so why not have the time of your life and forget about your acne. When you're outside, you will forget about your problem until you look at a mirror but don't let that get in the way of your happiness. Go out and have some fun with your friends. They'll still accept you, acne free or not. Take care.
  13. Try salicylic acid and see if that works for you. It's less drying than BP.
  14. Go buy yourself some jojoba oil and mix it with your moisturizer to get rid of flakiness.
