  1. uhm..yes....i been told i don't have it though. I think the redness I have are a mix of scarred pores and redmarks. There is practically nothing that can be done since most scar treatments tend to make big pores bigger.
  2. i have same. some do and some don't. I think keeping it out of the sun helps. spf doesn't though
  3. well, first off, I'm asian not albino and since the Shiseido product I tried (a high spf sunblock) have a very opague whiteness to it, I look like I'm wearing a kabuki mask, or worse yet a geisha girl, when I use it. I've tried high spf products from neutrogena and olay and noever got that level of opague whiteness in the lotion. Also, their sunblock is EXTREMELY greasy and I assume poreclogigng. I can literally feel the thing sticking on my face. It might be appropriate to double as clown makeu
  4. I have the exact same problem. Far as I can tell there is no "cure". Mine came from using too much bp and just generally treating my skin like crap.
  5. I've had bad experience with Japanese products, esp Shiseido. Tho japanese must have mighty good skin to withstand that stuff. But Tancyfan, your post might be more useful if you told us what products caused the problem
  6. Honestly, this was a thread I was thinking about starting. About time...thanks Colin. I have light/medium skin and by that I mean my skin is pale yellow if I don't sun, but I tan very easily. I'm not off-white like some asians can be though. RAM caused me some permanent redmarks, overapplication of bp gave me a red/burn mark ( i emphasize the overapplication here since normal use of it was fine for me), sunscreen/block did nothing to prevent my skin from tanning or burning. It seems only
  7. i had the exact problem as you. I kept a log on this and it really helped. Also, igotmyphilosophy kept a log on it as well as she had the same problem. For me the most important thing was laying off the complicated products, washing w/ purpose or basis antibacterial, avoiding the sun and eating well. It took me 4 months to get my skin tone back to some semblance of normalcy btw, so you ahve to be patient! i doubt u have rosacea. you're too young and secondly, since u were normal befor
  8. ipl is done for alot of rosacea sufferers. Results are not always positive. dependson the practitioner and the patient. sometimes things get worse, sometimes there's no change. you might want to get a second opinion.
  9. Lexy, it does look quite good. Your skin looks quite smooth, it doesn't have that "scarred" look at all. I know you tried alot of stuff but which one do you consider had the most effect? Is it the supercop?? I'm sooo tempted to try it looking at your improvements.
  10. it really helped to switch to a gentle cleansing routine w/ just water and Purpose.
  11. Yes they are continually improving in depth, but he rough texture, wrinkles, hills, valleys, large pores are back! I am going to see a new derm in three weeks. I have a sneaky suspicion that he will say to wait to do micro derm until the rolling indents from the facial have healed completely. I'm a slow healer, so in my case that could mean another six months! Ahh....fuck. I'm just gonna lock myself in my studio.....hide out for awhile, bang out some beats. i have large pores
  12. Lexy, I saw your new image and your skin looks much smoother than your initial pictures. It's hard to believe your progressed so much w/o any really invasive treatments. Are you still using supercop? How do you think it works on scarred pores?
  13. hey...i was diagonosed with it too. Got prescribed stuff, made me worse. Finally I had to start avoiding trigger factors which worked so well ppl can't believe I have it. I hardly believe it myself and am likely to belief I have sun and food allergies! ANyway, I know it can be frustrating but you just have to be patient.
  14. any one i really need to know don't steam. it will break all the blood vessels on your face bit by bit until you look like a tomato. don't steam
  15. wow...your skin really is tough and heals fast. My skin is super sensitive to anything. Even bp gave me a red mark scar between my eyes. Couldn't hardly believe it .... anyway, I'm glad nothing bad happened and the procedure is paying off for you
  16. a moving tomato? That's funny. That's like how I was 4 months ago. anyway, MZ your skin looks alot calmer than the previous pics. Your pores are so non-existent. lucky girl
  17. possibly b/c it amuses you ppl? Anyway, ppl "say" they're doing this and that, how does anyone really know? I mean I can say I wash my face with pee and now my skin is like clear porcelain doesn't make it true.
  18. hey lexy by using super cop has any of your scars actually been dissappeared? or hardly noticable? Some scars have shrunk significantly in diameter so now they look more like scarred pores, and some very shallow ones are now almost level to the surface. I don't think any scars have actually went away though. Also this hideous deep pit I had is a lot more shallow and softer than before. it's no longer saucer shaped either and is not very noticeable anymore. Not all my scars have responde
  19. oh yes, I remember reading a thread by pizzicato (or something whatevah) that with a cross the scar does look bigger initially.

    Right Cheek Scars

    mishmosh didn't say anyone's problem is petty. People post their pictures here presumably to get opinions, else why post?

    Right Cheek Scars

    you tellin thats nothing much what-ever I have to agree with mishmosh here...your scarring is minor at most. This is not equivalent to saying your problems are petty, but just a personal opinion.
  22. no stay like that, wish everyone didnt mind them.. i don't mind them I agree, people who judge the outside are just to thick and dumb to see inner beauty hmm cool no stay like that, wish everyone didnt mind them.. brad pitt has acne scars, as does elizabeth hurley, while cameron diaz and britney spears have active acne. While baby butt smooth skin can be a feature of beauty, not so great skin doesn't hide good looks either. yea but there scars are very mi
  23. your new avatar is very retro cute! Anyway, one time I "accidentally" made a small hole on my nose, and I mean a real hole, not a pit. It was noticeable from say 1 feet away. I left it alone and after 2 weeks it completely healed. So relax, it's probably going to fill up in a bit. i migh add in those two weeks, esp the firt couple of days I was going out of my mind.
  24. is your skin red and shiny right now? maybe that's your first line of business to take care of...my face was red, not shiny though, 3 mos ago. I couldn't look ppl in the eyes. I had ppl coming up to me asking me what happeend to my face. sheeesh
