Learnt from the "Beauty & Cometics" forum that tea tree oil with some moisturizer helps... I have the same problem - just bought a bottle of oil yesterday. Waiting to see results... Any one out there with better suggestions - I would like to know too.
I had severe acne for 4 years, in the early 90's.
I've since been focusing on all-around skin care, and I'm proud to say that my scars aren't very noticeable anymore!
I wash my face morning and night with a gentle cleanser (you might want to use one with salicylic acid in it to prevent further breakouts if you're worried). I always moisturize.
And very importantly, EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE!
I use mud masks 2-3 times a week (different ones) - it doesn't matter if you're male or female. Masks deep-clean the skin, help keep it healthy, and exfoliate the dead skin. The only way to get to the good skin underneath is to get rid of the dead skin.
(I also use a home dermabrasion system).
I dont know if you can tell me here or not, but i would like to know what dermabrasion kit you use at home, i was looking at 1 near by for about $40. looks like the same one that was on TV.
If you cant post it here you can e-mail me. Thanks
