mederma is great for getting rid of scars. I’ve used it on some unsightly scars on my legs.  Their website says it’s safe for acne scars. It takes some time to work though

Does this product help with redness and mild acne scarring? I’m desperate…

For whatever reason I started breaking out in monster goobers a few months ago.  Here’s what has helped me sfter trying proactive and many other products.  I found AcneFree at CVS and Walmart (it’s like $20), similar to proactive system but it actually works for me. 

I also started using baking soda as a scrub once a day to exfoliate.  Make a paste and massage gently and rinse.  I also use it on my arms and back to be super smooth 🙂

I read that you can use apple cider vinager as a toner and also to help with red spots.  When I run out of the tonor that came with my kit, I plan to use this method: Mix 1 part vinager with 8 parts water, allow to dry on face, RINSE OFF.

This is the best part of my regimen…..Egg white and lemon juice mask.  Take one egg white and wisk, add 1 teaspoonn of lemon juice, wipe on face and allow to dry.  It stinks alittle, but not too bad.  Rinse and WA LA! Smoothest face ever! I do this once a day after cleansing.  The egg white has a tun of protein in it that’s good fro your skin and the lemon juice “bleaches” out those red marks over a few days to a week.  Plus there’s something else in the egg white that discourages breakouts.  I haven’t had one in 2 months 🙂

Hope that helps….

@k_nash:It works and it’s crazy cheap!  Just don’t rub hard, be very gentle.  Your face will be so smooth! And use it as a body scrub too, works great!

@TheFutureMrsLamkin:

This baking soda thing has intrigued me! I have never heard of that before. Do you buy regular baking soda at the grocery store?

I use tee trea oil at night and it really helps to fade acne scars. I keep breaking out on my chin though! I make a conscious effort not to rest my chin on my hand, but it hasn’t helped. boo

@FallBride100111:Yup. Just regular grocery store brand.  And you only need a little bit, it goes a long way.  TRY IT!

@ktisthatbees:I had an issue there as well but not anymore! 

I also stopped using foundation too.  I started using a moisturizer with a hint of color from Olay and a concealer pallette and brush for under eye circles.  I think this has also really helped, no more clogged pores with yucky makeup!

I just discovered BenzaClin. You have to get a prescription from your doctor, but (for me) it works better than any other acne medication. It is a topical antibiotic that kills the bacteria that causes the acne. So, it is not super drying

Yogurt facial masks are great they clean out your pores and make your skin feel awesome.. Greek yogurt one tsp of hunny and some fresh  lemon. I did it last night.
