  1. So I have very acne prone skin, but this year I discovered The Regimen, which cleared up my skin! I had moderate acne before this, and The Regimen has worked miracles for me. Anyway, I used everything acne.org told me to - the cleanser, the 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, the moisturizer, the AHA+, the jojoba oil, the suggested sunscreen options. I know this site says NOT to introduce any other products into this regimen... but now that my skin is clear (aside from the unfortunate leftover hyperpigment
  2. Well I've heard from other users on here/other websites that Retin-A is a collagen boosting product, it will apparently tighten/plump the skin and diminish the look of pitted acne scars.
  3. Sorry for the late response, but two questions - 1) Do you know if Retin-A will permanently diminish the appearance of pitted acne scars, or only while you're using it? 2) If my skin is almost clear from The Regimen, will switching to Retin-A still give me that initial it-gets-worse-before-it-gets-better break-out? I'm basically clear at this point, but I'm still very acne-prone, since skipping The Regimen more than once will break me out. I've made a new post about this if you want to check i
  4. I cleared my skin up through the Regimen from this site but am considering switching to Retin-A since I've been left with pitted acne scars. I was wondering if Retin-A permanently diminishes the appearance of pitted acne scars or if it only does that while you're using it.
  5. So back in February I started The Regimen from this site and it has been my holy grail. Cleared up my skin nicely besides the occasional break-out. However, I have been left with pitted acne scars and have heard Retin-A can do the trick. But I've also heard your skin on Retin-A gets worse before it gets better. Since my skin is almost clear at this point, will I still get the initial bad break-out from starting Retin-A? I am still very acne-prone -- whenever I skip The Regimen more than onc
  6. I've looked into Dermaflage and apparently it comes in a very small tube and isn't all that useful if you have a handful of scars like me because it'll run out so fast. :/ Have you tried the Ben Nye Tattoo Cover Enkore suggests? It looks awesome in his video but I don't know how I feel about wearing what's basically stage makeup everyday.
  7. Lately, I've been searching Youtube up and down for tutorials on how to conceal pitted acne scars. I've come across three videos that struck with me and am wondering if anyone else has tried the products from them and can tell me how well they concealed your pitted scars: From video 1: (video by Diamondsandheels14) Makeup Forever HD Micro-Perfecting PrimerShiseido Refining Primer Makeup or Shiseido Pore Smoothing Corrector Dermablend Cover Cream (I especially want to know how well these tw
  8. I was thinking of posting it there but thought it may have more success over here. But thanks, I'll post this over there as well!

  10. Thank you!! I've seen you in the scar forums quite a bit recently, do you think you could tell me some more of what you've found out from your scar treatment research? You can private message me if you want or just answer here. :) I think I'll be posting some pics to help determine whether or not my scars are considered shallow.
  11. I found an article on Livestrong.com about how to get rid of pitted acne scars. I can't afford professional treatments at the moment, so I'm just looking at the first two steps listed: Step 1 Treat shallow scars with a homemade papaya mask. Combine ½ cup mashed papaya and 2 tbsp. honey into a small bowl. Let the mask remain on the skin for about 20 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water. Step 2 Apply a collagen-boosting cream to your scars. Apply three dots of a drugstore or department
  12. Hmm, I've never heard of airbrush makeup. Are there specific brands/products you use?
  13. Do you have any names of specific products you could recommend?
  14. I know that pitted acne scars are almost impossible to get rid of unless you get special professional treatments that cost thousands of dollars... But is there ANYTHING I can do at home that can help at least a little? Maybe some sort of vitamins I can take to increase collagen production? (not sure that's how it even works... I'm not very knowledgeable about this). Like many people, I can't afford treatments that are worth thousands of dollars. I cleared my skin up through the regimen and n
  15. Do you recommend just the Fitme concealer or the foundation and powder as well? And did it break you out at all?
