  1. I'm not going to turn this into some stale argument but anyway. Note that I used the word I - I simply said that 50% is for people who have built up tolerance and was suggesting to him what might prevent him from getting burnt, that's why I stated you should only use 50% once you immune to lower concentrations. Did I say he was immune to lower concentrations? No I did not.
  2. Yeah, it has something to do with your bodies response to healing. The more inflamed the acne, the more chance you have of developing a red mark, though that's only true to a certain degree. As we grow older our body slows down it's healing mechanism, thus acne/marks being more persistant.
  3. Put on some sort of topical that will help and fasten the healing process. Aloe vera, like the great reizo suggested and even copper peptides, ecspecially the ones from skinbiology.
  4. Kligman's formula is a good treatment for dark discolourations/brown marks/post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation which consists of hydroquinone 4%, tretinoin 0.025%, kogic acid 2% and an corticosteroid 1%. I don't recommend the corticosteroid which is only their to counteract the irritating effects of the tretinoin and to promote healing. If your skin isn't sensitive ask your dermatologist to prescribe it for you without the corticosteroid. Anyway, I'll explain the other ingredients. Hydroquinone
  5. Molly, I'm pretty sure he said brown marks. Ricky, Aloe Vera is an anti-inflammatory which will help soothe inflammatory acne or any redness. Brown marks are the leftovers of your skin's response to the inflammation caused by acne. I would suggest hydroquinone, tretinoin, azelaic acid or kogic acid. Maybe even some type of combination if a dermatologist near you can compound it. Hydroquinone is safe when used for about 3-4 months. After that, discontinue use
  6. Hydroquinone cream is very well tolerated. Some people may experience minor and temporary skin irritations including mild itching or stinging and reddening of the skin (irritant contact dermatitis). Side effects that should warrant stopping the cream and seeking medical advice immediately include severe burning, itching, crusting, or swelling of treated areas (possible allergic contact dermatitis) and any unusual skin discolouration (ochronosis). Generally it is safe if you use it for no longe
  7. The ingredients in Meladerm won't do much for red marks but it depends on the type of red mark. If it's the type of red mark leftover from an inflamed acne lesion you can't do much but if its finished the whole inflammation process and their is a slight tinge of red and signs of hyperpigmentation, it could help. Though redness on one's complexion is usually associated with rosacea or sunburn. I'm pretty sure Meladerm hasn't had success of treating such skin disorders. Anti-inflammatories will

  9. Nutritionist with SPF 15+ is an awesome moisturiser. Contains omega 3+6, magnesium, grape seed extract, zinc, vitamins C, E and A. It's around $17.00 from your local pharmacy/supermarket.
  10. Smokey eyes, but not too overdone. Just be subtle. Nice neutral brows, not too thin or over plucked. I personally hate the look of brows that have been plucked to the max. Nude or peachy lips. A peachy, appley blush. Gotta make it natural looking
  11. Thanks guys. They emailed me and they said its fine for me to write it out. Yay!
  12. Hahaha sorry, I created that post just after you did. I did email them a few hours back but they haven't replied yet so yeah I hope they just let me send them my invoice via email and money by postage like you suggested. Anyway, thanks for your help Oh yeah and how much glycolic acid does Avon's ANEW Retexturizing Pads contain?
  13. Hi, I've ordered my sample kit but all I need to do is send them my invoice and money because I chose the option of money order. In regards to sending my invoice, could I write it out because I don't have a printer Thanks
