  1. You could try massaging the scars to "plump" up the skin. By massaging means you have to do it in a special way. The idea is to force the collagen that stay beneath the dermis layers up to the upper layers of skin since the collagen molecules are too large to penetrate. Same theory as microneedling that to promote scar healing is to allow the collagen to pass through the dermis upto the epidermis. I am consuming vitamin C and spirulina to assist in scar healing. My massage method is squeezin

  5. Benzoyl peroxide breaks down into benzoic acid and oxygen though it kills p.acne but it also oxidizes the skin lead to more "unnatural" dead skin cell and clogged pores. Fish oil has a lot of unnecessary oil in it try those dry vitamin A. Or Omega3/6 for inflammation? Acne is very weird as there is still no permanent cure for it. Yea sugary stuff, dairy products, spicy food and oily food all linked to acne. Sometimes hard to resist those food.
  6. You can try crush vitamin A tablet get it from Solgar Dry Vitamin A it has retinyl palmitate 5000IU and L-ascorbic acid 10mg and apply the powder on the scars and apply hot water compressed 60-70degree into cotton ball and hold onto the scars areas 1-2minutes. Wash it thereafter.
  7. It could be hormonal since I just realise you are only 15 topically might not get rid of acne. Consulting skin specialist/dermatologist is a way to go as dont wanna mess things up with experimenting stuff. We can only advise and everyone is different.
  8. Vitamin A helps to keep sebum under control, vitamin B5 helps too but that would need super overdose to see effect. An vitamin A overdose can be harmful to bones and skin, causing weakness and brittleness, even leading to fatigue and vomiting. Excessive intake of vitamin A is toxic, at dosages of around 20-25,000 IU daily. Consuming more than 25,000 IU of vitamin A per day (adults) and 10,000 IU per day (children) from either food or supplements or both is known to be toxic. If your acne se
  9. Agree should consult doctor immediately at the same time try to maintain healthy diet and proper supplements as it will occasionally return.
  10. Cystic acne might be a sign of internal problem. Diagnose it what to eat and what not to eat. Hormonal usually only small to medium size acne but not amounting to large cystic acne. Take healthy diet and proper supplement
  11. Since you have dry skin, you can either just wash with plain water or gentle mild cleanser. I want to know you are using AHA+ for spot treatment only? What is the strength you use? Did you apply it to whole face? tablet is not as harsh as BP so it will not interupt your AHA+ routine. You can apply AHA+ after topically use tablet. Make sure to wash off the tablet as it might clogged pores. Yes, it helps to control your sebum as well when consuming. Topically it will helps speed up the healing
  12. Cystic acne might be a sign of internal problems and it seems hormonal imbalance may or may not be the caused of it. Though accutane or BC is not a permanent cure sadly, you can try maintain it with healthy diet and proper supplement.
  13. Hey there, cold shower doesnt get rid of acne it might be good for redness temporary but not for acne. warm/hot shower on the other hand good at bringing up acne to head and easily to squeeze the pus out. Cold shower will prolong the symptoms as the pus trapped under the skin unable to reach the surface. The faster you squeeze the pus out, the better your life would be.
  14. You can try this http://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/362095-diy-acne-scars/
  15. You will need to maintain your complexion and healthy diet as accutane is not permanent cure sadly. If you have moderate severe acne accutane is the best remedy atm. Otherwise, you could try alternative Solgar dry vitamin A which has vitamin A 5000IU and L-ascorbic acid 10mg. You can also use it topically for acne scars by simply crushing it into powder and apply it on scars areas massage 30sec - 1minute followed by hot water compressed 60-70degree wrapped in cotton ball and hold it on the scars
