I have an acne scar on my chin. I have 38 days until my wedding. I do have a lovely make up artist…….but any advice on helping red skin to fade is appreciated. It has healed, just bright red!. I was reading lemon juice works but am sceptical. Any tried and tested methods? Thanks
General advice on clear skin always helpful x

Pure vitamin E. I got a stick of it at GNC for less than $5.

Witch Hazel clears me up pretty well.
edit: WebMD says
“Witch hazel contains chemicals called tannins. When applied directly to the skin, witch hazel might help reduce swelling, help repair broken skin, and fight bacteria.”

I’m a big fan of Carley’s Clear and Smooth tamanu cream. I like their products in general (I have really sensitive skin and it seems like anything with dyes, fragrance, etc. aggravates it), but the tamanu cream is amazing for getting red blotches under control.
It’s under “Products” > “Acne Solutions” > scroll down, last item on the page.

I’ve also gotten good results from neem tree oil and tea tree oil applied topically, and from a salve called “Healin’ Hollers.” All of those can be found at natural foods stores, organic groceries, etc. The salve is here: http://www.healin-hollers.com The Carley’s that I mentioned up above is not available in stores – you get it by ordering through the website or from Ebay. (They send lots of little bonus samples with every order, too – it’s worth checking out just for the freebies!)

My skin, is super sensitive, I just exfoliate using Dermalogica’s daily cream exfoliant or Paula’s choice BHA gel, Make sure you use an SPF on it to avoid sun damage to your skin any further.
hope it goes quickly.

I would def try the lemon juice…Aloe vera… and i’ve heard about raw potatoes…Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Scrub, Pink Grapefruit is awesome. The salicylic acid will help with acne scarring. As for the person who said tea tree oil… i got a HORRIBLE breakout/reaction from putting that on my face that took months to get rid of. fyi!

Oh, and my two HG face products are Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Buffing Beads For Face and Body. Completely cleared up my skin. And Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay face mask. Really makes my face tight, bright and glowy.

Also: massage it lightly to break down scar tissue.

@rushingangel: Yes I have had poor reaction to tea tree as it is too drying and I’m in the needing moisture stage! Thanks everyone, appreciate it.
