Post Q. for Everyone...

Is it just me, or have you guys noticed that acne on your forehead or nose tends to never leave scars? Itís almost always the worst on my cheeks. Is it just because most people break out around their cheeks? Or that the skin around the cheeks is just more sensitive?

It's interesting that you mentioned the two places where most people experience the most oil. I think that must be the connection. I rarely scar because my skin is oily and I take several vitamin supplements, but it is true that my nose and forehead don't show even the faintest signs of past breakouts.

hmmmmm.........Good point. I have what I think is really oily skin and I have never scarred even though I used to pick a lot. It would be interesting if I could be thankful for my oil for once......

I always had really oily skin but it never scarred, but then when I started taking accutane my skin dried out kinda just became normal skin, but the bad thing is I scarred on my cheeks only, not my forehead. so I guess it is kinda true. Do you guys know any cream that takes away the scars or at least makes them look flatter?
