  1. Thanks buddy Its going well.. Fade away left over red marks/pigmentation u mean?? ummm.. not really apart from keeping it reasonably moisturised avoiding oily products and products with fragrance etc.. ALSO, for 2 months now ive been using an Even Skin Tone Serum by ULTRAcuticals, cost me $75 for like 50ml or something... i reckon that has helped a bit.. its only applied at night, some mornings when i wake up my marks look like theyre not even there, its so light!! other mornings theyre visi
  2. Hey thanks hun!! yeah if ya look at my 2nd last pics u can see some shallow scarring. Pic doesnt show it well but they are there!! and the so called "redmarks" THEY are my pitted scars! even when the redness goes in time im sure the indentation will still be there. You've got scarring now cause the inflammation has gone down, u dont have that inflammed pimple filling it in... thats what happened to me once acne started clearing. i sure HOPE they "fill in" but i highly doubt it. i'll be looking

    Hey ALL! I honestly and totally forgot about this site! :-S hmm, guess that's a good thing right? *knock on wood* everything is still great, skin wise. Wish i could say the pink marks have completely gone but they're still there - fading...sllowwlllyyy! However, the main thing is no more bloody acne, they have seized and i'm SUPER happy about it! This is a fairly recent pic of me, i'm wearing a bit of loose powder and a little goes a long way! i mean, it manages to cover up the remaining

  5. Greenberg : i seriously wouldnt know?? sorry. In my opinion, the salt minerals found in the water to me seem much more beneficial for the skin - natural! Hope it works for ya but

    Ok its been two months since i last posted a picture.. Took these today. tried different lighting and angle so u can see my scars, aint too deep but i think the pic doesnt bring em out enough.... meh! i tried.

    If you compare my cheek to my neck (esp in the left pic) u can see the skin tone is totally different.. maybe cause i exfoliated just before i took the pic its still over scrubbed n pink. NO make-up in this picture btw!!

    Hmm, i quite like the sun! i tan as much as i can, and my red marks were terribly red. For those of u who dont know and havent seen my Gallery, i went on a two week holiday and was at the beach everyday, the salt water helped, but it was the combination of sun exposure as well (i believe)! My face and body were fairly burnt over the first week there and i was extremely paranoid that my marks would stay or turn brown... but they didnt. Ive continued to expose myself and red marks to the sun sever

    PLEASE help!

    Desitin is over the counter, and yes I used it while on tane. It's perfectly safe. Desitin will be in the babie's section.
  19. hehe thanks! they look much better than they were before! But id give anything to go back and NOT do it ..grr So you waxed your eyebrows while on tane too ha?? How long did it take to scab up and how long did the scab go away and skin was back to normal?? Cause in the picture, where ever u see Red, its stiff and sore. Might be too late for ice since i did it 2 days ago :confused: IM SUCH A FOOL

  21. Ahh thats a shame j0n! Guess it varies on skin types. Anywayyyyy apart from battling these left over red marks i haeve.... ive now made myself another problem!!!! Stupid me went to get my eyebrows waxed and re-shaped. It didnt even occur to me i shouldnt be doing it cause i was just recently on Roaccutane.
