    Vaseline is working

    Well i heard that putting vaseline can reduce scar appearances left after acne is gone.i didnt believe it because i posted and asked wat opther people thought and they said not to try it,but i had nothing better to do so i tried it.wat suprised me the most is that today some of the dark spots just peeled right off ,with new skin underneath.i hope this vaseline thing keeps working

    I already told everyone this and put my before and after pictures for those who didn't believe me about the Vaseline.

    I could not believe it when my scars and red marks started peeling (after 8 weeks). Make sure you also use the Retinol Serum, to keep it baby pink!

    Don't forget to apply it often- and only on the red spots.

    I didn't get the message how much- until the nurse told me up to 6 times a day. The red mark has to be TOTALLY MOIST.

    Most people think Vaseline will break you out but NOT if you put only a dab on the spot and ONLY on the spot.

    (The downside is I have to reapply at lunch and in the afternoon- a little dab and I'm good to go).

    Re: Vaseline is working

    Hi guys, I think the vaseline thing may actually work, I had a facial done once and the lady squeezed my face so hard that there were black and blue marks everywhere, to calm it I had put A & D ointment on it and you guys said it peeled right off, like in about two or three days. There is also a product in Proactiv solution, the repairing lotion, I used to put globs of that on the pimples and it would just peel off in about two days with new pink skin underneath, I am thinking of doing that that again if I get new pimples.
    But I glad that you found something that you are pleased with.

    is the vaseline put on active spots or once they have "resolved" and left a mark??

    You need to cover the entire spot- when its red to when it has turned bluish-brown.

    After 8 weeks of non-stop application (several times a day- i dab it to the spot with those cotton bud things you use to clean your ears), it will start to peel, revealing pinkish, scar-free skin.

    Re: Vaseline is working

    Yes, you can put Vaseline across lots of scars. My scars extended thru my forehead, cheeks, chin. It was very bad scarring.
    But after Vaseline, the scars got a chance to heal properly and now they are 75% better (still there but will go away).

    See my before and after pictures in my post under "Could this be considered an acne and red mark cure".

    hi phil.

    ive read and saw it, gr8 pics, but it wasnt just vaseline that done it was it, you went for laser and other things, so im guessing that vaseline on its own wont work?

    thanks

    Re: Vaseline is working

    Hi,

    As long as you have a scar (any wound), Vaseline would work. The laser (light) was for the red marks, but the scars got a chance to heal with the Vaseline.

    Also look at the post 'Clinical proof that Vaseline heals acne scars'.
