@secretbee33:  i would reallysuggest an appt with a dermatologist or cosmetic center. 

Have you considered getting a microdermabrasion treatment? They will try to sell you a package of 6 but honestly even one makes a difference! It makes your skin seem smoother and multiple treatments reduce the appearance of scars. I love getting them!

Umm honestly I wait for a groupon and then just go there. I always research the placebeforehand tho! Usually it’s a spa or cosmetic center

@secretbee33:  I have been dealing with some hyperpigmentation from a bad breakout with switching pills. After trying everything and making my skin so much more sensitive from strong products and lots of chemicals, I did research on natural skincare. I started using rosehip seed oil mixed with evening primrose oil and it’s making a huge difference in fading the marks. They both promote healing and are loaded with essential fatty acids which are great for hyperpigmentation. Also.. this sounds weird, but it has worked wonders for any of my pimples and acne marks. Use a banana that is ripe (yellow with some black spots on it) and rub just the inside of the peel on your face. Let it sit and dry like a mask for about 15-20 minutes, the rinse off with water.

@secretbee33:  I was seeing a dermatologist prior to my wedding, and I was on accutane for severe acne. I even had some of the deep ones that you can’t pop, and they would leave horrible scars even though I didn’t touch them.

My the time my makeup trial rolled around, most of my acne had cleared up significantly, but I had a LOT of red marks and hyper pigmentation from the residual acne and the healing process. I still do have faint red marks on my cheeks to this day, but it was much worse before my wedding.

My makeup artist was highly reputable and had worked with acne before. He used airbrush makeup on me, and a little concealer.

Honestly, you have nothing to worry about. A makeup artist does this for a living.

Here is me on my wedding day while clearing up from very significant acne which warranted taking accutane for 7 months (the most powerful acne drug on the market, which they even have to do monthly blood draws to monitor).

One thing that is worth a shot is good quality vitamin e oil. I use a lot of products– retin A, good nightcreams, etc., but I find the best thing for those red spots is very inexpensive and basic. I especially recommend using it as soon as the hreakout starts calming down. I also put it   on in the a.m. I don’t find that it causs breakouts, despite being oil, but I’d start by using it as a spot treatment.

I have also found taking zinc a few times a week makes an enormous difference– it was what finally cleared up my acne, and did so quickly. I still get pimples, but nothing major at all.

@secretbee33:  a good MUA should have great, full-coverage foundation. That’s what a trial is for. I have HORRIBLE skin so I really took my time, researched, and paid dearly for a good MUA in my area. i have dark marks all over my face and she airbrushed me for the wedding and it looked flawless.

@secretbee33:  Nope! it is considered a dry oil. It absorbs supoer fast and isn’t known to clog pores. I have very sensitive skin too, especially with new products and haven’t any problems with it.

@secretbee33:  Let me know how it goes! I can’t rave enough about it. If you look on-line there’s tons of positive articles and reviews about it 🙂 I got mine off Amazon for about 6 bucks. It’s by a company called Now.

I have found that microbrassion  sand chemical peels do wonders. I did a series of 6 together and it helped with scarring and really just made my face smoother and pores look smaller 🙂 then I got pregnant and even 6 months after baby my skins back to square one. I started microbrassion again and have an appy with a derm next week because my skin is still actively breaking out.

I would really make sure you get a makeup trian. The least of my concerns of makeup was covering the red marks because I do it every day and figured a makeup artist would have no problem being a professional but after my trial I had to re cover all my marks myself :/ thankfully I had a trial pretty far out so back on the hunt for a makeup artist
