How to get rid of red marks left from acne does it work??

I read this on the internet mabey someone should give it a try.....

Remedy for Red Marks Left from Acne #108346
This is a great 3 step regimen to clear up the red marks left from acne!

5 teaspoons baking soda
9 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon egg whites
1 teaspoon lemon juice


First, make a paste with the baking soda and 1 tsp of the water.
Apply it to your face, massaging gently, then wash off immediately.
Then make a mixture of the apple cider vinegar and 8 tsp of water.
Apply it to your face with a cottonball.
Wash off after 10 minutes.
Finally you make a mask using the egg white and lemon juice.
Smooth it over your face avoiding the eye area and wash off after 10 minutes.
Do this once a day or every second day to make your face smooth and free of red marks!

Sounds alot of messing around matey.

Unless your totaly against it, i would recommend using somthing benzoyl peroxide based, this will bleach your skin, and make the red marks fade.

I could be totally wrong, but I have heard that Benzole peroxide actually lengthens the life of the red marks. The recipe that mightbaal posted looks much better as most of those ingredients DO help (supposedly with red marks).

Re: How to get rid of red marks left from acne does it work??

I would think this might be somewhat effecttive on spots caused by hyperpigmentation(an excess of melanin like in freckles and age spots) but as far as the red marks left by acne-I don't think so. Those marks are injuries because the tissue is damaged at a deeper level. You can't just lighten them. They need to heal and that could take several months. They best thing would be something to speed up cell turnover-make you shed and grow new skin, like hydroxy acids, retin-A, a lot of lasers out now. If you want a cream go for something that's regenerating, not lightening.

Re: How to get rid of red marks left from acne does it work??

Time is the best treatment. Leave the red marks alone, because as another poster said, it's damaged tissue. I'm acne-free now, but I had a lot of red marks left over after I finished my course of Accutane almost 3 years ago. I tried hydroquinone, and in my experience, it's terrible. If you have tanned skin, do not go with hydroquinone, because it tends to leave a ring or an outline on the area that it's applied to. Retin-A Micro is effective, but it can be a little irritating if you have sensitive skin. I've never gone the laser approach, but I did get a TCA peel done a half a year ago. TCA peels are an expensive, effective approach, but the results are short-lived. In my opinion, if you still have active acne, then don't waste your money on skin lightening methods/products, because the red marks will just come back. Instead, focus more on finding a regimen that best suits your skin.

Re: How to get rid of red marks left from acne does it work??

i apply the egg white+honey mask almost everyday, but i didn't try the baking soda + apple cider vinegar .
in my opinion, the egg white mask seems to help in skin whitening, but i don't think it helps alot in lightening the acne marks, maybe it did speed up the process alittle it faster
