Best Remedies for Red Marks?

I recently picked at my face (I know, I know..But I couldn't help it..I'm a compulsive picker) and now I am left with a ton of red marks. I've read through all the posts...Aloe Vera..Vitamin E..etc. But what works really good, and really fast? Their pretty new so they should heal quickly if I put something that actually works on it.

What have you used?

Daily exfoliation and moisturizer speed up the healing process of red marks a lot. I never have red marks last more than a week!

well...

you can search the boards for Asprin Mask, there are many excellent threads about it.
i am going to tell you anyway because you will find almost the sae information.

First, you need to have uncoated Asprin (that disolves in water within seconds), crush 4-5 Asprins or drop few drops of water and wait 2-3 minutes to make a creamy paste.

Then you apply it on your face as a mask. You have to wait 15-20 minutes.
but i would recommend to apply it for 10 minutes for the first 2 days, then 15 minutes the 3rd day and then 20 for the rest of your days (just to make your skin used to it)
then you can wash your face. it ill come off very easily.

if you find your face extremely dry after washing your face, you can apply some Aloe Vera gel (Natural gel right from the leaf is the best but you can also apply 99.9% gel tubes on the shelfs like GNC which i sometimes use)

you will feel the difference in your Pimples and red marks within 12 hours of the first use. Continue using it (no more than 20 mins) and then you will SEE the difference.

i have tried many things (all natural or homemade) and Asprin Mask worked the best!

the other Benfits other than reducing redness is it shrinks the pimples very fast, heals them, stop them new ones, makes your skin a little glowy and some other that i cant remember right now.

hope that i have covered most of the important stuff.

Best of lucks.

Oh Definately!
The Baking Soda Mask was the WORST thing i ever did to my face.
i would like to warn everybody that the Baking Soda mask makes your skin feel great for the first three times and you might think that its the best thing ever. but WRONG! almost everyone who tried it was really happy first but then broke out so badly that the threads got deleted.
So Please dont even try them.

Asprin is really good (its been 9 days i am on asprin mask and it Does reduce Acne unlike Baking Soda giving peimples to the area's of the face i never had like forehead, neck and jawbones).

well i have a very old and big mark. that sometimes looked blue rather than red otherwise it was red. i havethat for almost two years. and after the Asprin mask, i cant say it disappeared but it looks smaller and much more lighter, like regular redness in the Acne era. so i suppose it might help.
tonight i am going to try somethng new that my friend suggested for my old red mark.
its Betnovate (Betamethasone). She said if applied regularly, my mark will go away within a wek. but she warned me, and it also says on the tube Precautions that if used for long-term, thinning, sigmentation etc might occur.

i'll update you if i have any success with it.

another popular thing is Lemon juis, Multan Mud, Rose water and another thing i cant remember the name of is used for Red marks. but i am going to give a long gap and not apply anything to my skin and then try that mud mask. will also tell if that helps.
