  1. hello, I have been battling trying to rid my cheek of these stubborn spots since a bad breakout back in November. although they have faded noticeably using just a saclictic acid scrub, I just started using a light glycolic acid mask some nights, as well as bentonite clay. They seem to be helping. However, I have a dermatologist appointment in 15 days and I am curious about bleaching methods. Does anyone here with fair caucasian but not porcelain-like skin have any experience with products like
  2. Is anyone on here familiar with using silicone for post inflammatory erythema (PIE)? The red marks that you get from acne that take forever to go away? I've seen a handful of people on the internet claiming that silicone gel or sheets can help with PIE. Is there anyone currently suffering with these post acne marks that is using silicone and can confirm that it is giving good results? If so how well is it working, and how are you using the silicone? The amount of information on how to get r
  3. Hi guys I am a junior in high school and i have had acne since freshman year. My acne has been flaring up recently so i decided to take some pictures so i can get some advise from all of you guys. I have been using pro-active for about a year now and i also have Retin-A at my disposal and recently i have been using that at night time because my pro-active has not been helpful recently. I also have a problem with my acne after it has gone. There are dark purple marks where the acne was(they are f
  4. Okay so about 3 months ago, I switched from my regular makeup to Bare Minerals. BOOM cysts formed in clusters on my right cheek. Guess I'm allergic to the bismuth. They were very Hard and deep, and I still have a few left. Lucky me. Anyways, they left behind lots of REALLY red and purple marks, I know this is the beginning of them starting to heal but, what will help speed up this process? This is the reddest my hyperpigmentation from acne has ever been. I read that apple cider vinegar could he
  5. Hello everyone! im new this this forum, and I'm sorry if I've posted in the wrong thread, however I do have some questions concerning my acne spots. i'm a female bodybuilder and I drink a lot of protein shakes, which makes me believe that it's the main reason why my acne is worsening. I can't just stop drinking that stuff, I know that I can switch to food with lots of proteins, but it we'll never be the same without my supplements. I've been using clean and clear acne spot treatmemt, and it
  6. Hi, Over the years I have formed many unsightly flat scars from acne spots, I have brown - light brown scarring with the occasional purple scar, all from spots and I have one from a chemical peel (which is fading). I was wondering what is the best product for these types of scars, and what have you found that works best for flat scarring?
  7. I use to be an idiot and read somewhere online that taking in 50,000 iu of vitamin A daily will get rid of purple marks/pink marks, so i did this for about 3 months...and my skin became so sensitive, it wasn't helping the marks at all, so i stop'd it, this was awhile ago, and my marks remained the same, if not worse. However recently i went on a holiday where it was about 35-to 40 degrees, and i sunbathed a lot, (with sf30 where the marks where) and since i've been back its been 2 weeks and
