  1. Have you considered make up? Seriously if you feel that bad about it then its worth a try - people shouldn’t even know you are wearing it if you do it right. Check out mineral makeup, its best for your skin. Also a good sunscreen, moisturiser and some kind of healing serum such as vit E (Estee lauder night repair is my fav) is what you need. But I don't think its that bad - to me it looks like it will heal up eventually and your skin will look fine. The scarring won't even be that notic
  2. Are you sure its pigmentation? I thought I had chronic pigmentation (have had same red ‘marks’ for quite a few years) but then I went to a skin clinic who did this photo thing which showed I actually had redness due to blood vessels etc being close to the skin. It’s genetic so check out your parents face for redness, also if you tend to blush or go red when exercising or drinking then you likely have it. (I don’t go that red but more than others iykwim) Harsh cleansers, scrubs etc will make i
  3. Differin worked for mine, but you need a prescription. Not sure if a doctor would give it to you since you look basically clear (I may be wrong of course, and its worth a shot). It took a few months but that flew. You could try 10% AHA, that worked very well although there was an initial breakout. Also I love clay masks, I use a natio one. Not sure if it clears them but it makes your skin all smooth and nice. Finally you could check your products/makeup to make sure none are clogging your
  4. Differin cleared me up if that helps. There wasn't much of an initial breakout and it took a few months to be near 100% clear ( still get one or two on my chin when stressed) Did little for my enlarged pores, red marks, scars etc. But at least I have no new ones and they can heal now. My clogged pores/ closed comedones/ whatever are gone and my bumpy forehead is now lovely and smooth which is a plus. I just used johnson's facial wipes at night, and neutrogena ultrasheer lotion with sunscreen
  5. Anyone heard of mircozone before? Its a type of facial I believe. I went into a salon to buy some dermalogica products and the lady recommended this to me. I booked but now I'm not so sure because I use differin and I forget to ask if thats ok. She said it would be good for blackheads which is my main complaint (besides redness and scarring). She also said it is fantastic for breakouts so I was wondering if anyone here had tried it.
  6. Where has it been proven? I've always heard that the sun is good for acne but bad for hyperpigmentation and red marks. And wikipedia ( I know, a great source haha) says sun exposure can cause hyperpigmentation. I'd be interested in reading your sources. Especially since you are making these claims and telling us not to criticise you.
  7. How about a flesh coloured bandaid? Or have you tried vit E oil? Thats what I use on any scarring. Its thick like honey and takes ages to soak in but I think it works really well. Also make sure to put heaps of sunscreen on it to help it fade - suntan/burn will only prolong it. I think its sad you feel you can't wear certain clothes because of this - I have a decent sized hypertrophic scar on the front of my ankle, about 3cm long (and its at the end of a scar that goes half way up my calf). I

    Bio-oil

    I haven't used bio-oil but I am using vit E oil. Its not clogging my pores and I have had no breakouts since starting it - its been a few weeks now. I'd probably only use it if you are already clear though. I wouldn't mix it with moisturiser but just dab/rub some in. I put it on only in the mornings if I'm not going out straight away to give it a chance to soak in, instead of rubbing off on my pillow. If you already have bio oil, why on try it on a patch of skin for a week and see how you go?
  9. I don't think there is any such thing as tanning in 'moderation'. Tanning is a sign the skin is damaged and your body is trying to repair it. My dad has had skin cancers burnt off since he was 21 and I know (or heard of) many other people who have skin cancer. Scary stuff. "I know the risks of sun beds, but could using them about half a dozen times in a few months really do damage?" Yes, I'm fairly sure sunbeds are more highly concentrated then sunlight and so are just as bad or worse then sit
  10. I tried it at 10%. I did break out at first, mostly lots of little bumps (whiteheads/closed comedones) but they cleared up after a few weeks. Not so much actual pimples if I remember correctly. I know it didn't clear my red marks up 100% but I think it helped a little. Most acne products do breakout you out at first and take at least 1 month once to work in my experience.
  11. Is this for me? I was talking about pitted scarring as well . My surgical scar healed very nicely with vit e - you wanted to know what would reduce scarring from a new wound, not what would get rid of established scars. I havent broken out in ages so I can't try it on new acne. And I have enough of both to know the difference. ic. thanks for the input. Just curious, how did you stop your acne? Is this for me? I was talking about pitted scarring as well . My surgical scar he

  13. Vit e cream/oil. I have only just started trying it for my old acne scars/red marks but have used it for a surgical scar before. After 6 months its just a white line that no-one hardly notices (which is great since it runs about 10+cm up the front of my calf). Its only been 3 days on my face but I think they are a little better - but then it could just be my imagination. I should really take photos to compare!
  14. Haha maybe I should just kill two birds with one stone and inject my insulin into my face Btw most people produce insulin naturally, its not some kind of ultra dangerous medication. (Not that I'm advocating trying this, I don't think it would work. ) I do find this interesting, perhaps one day there will be a "perfect cure" for acne scarring. I just don't think it will anytime soon.
  15. Depends on whats in the treatment. If its a AHA or some other kind of peeling acid, then yes it will help a little. If its BP or some kind of antibiotic, then no. Better off using an all over acne treatment really. Prevention is much more effective then any cure when it comes to red marks.
