    Who is using Vaseline for scars & red marks?

    Let's have a roll call here- who is using Vaseline for red marks and scars.

    I'll start.

    Name: Phil
    Age: 24
    Acne: Had it since 11
    Location: Minneapolis
    Vaseline Usage: Used it for 14 - 16 weeks, 6 times a day
    Progress: Marks peeled at Week 10 of use, scars getting finer now. Using cream scrub and facial brush to make them finer.

    Hapaguy and BabyJac

    Congrats on your progress!! The marks will slough off close to week 10. Don't forget to use a facial brush to scrub skin.

    Angela,

    No. I just use Vaseline but you have to apply it 6 x a day. It can be a b**ch to keep doing it!

    I can't imagine that vaseline will help you with red marks and scars. I have a better idea for you. Buy Evening Primrose Oil capsules at the health food store. Using a manicure scissors, cut off the end, and use your finger to apply the oil to the areas that you would normally use vaseline on. I bet you'll see more results.

    I just emailed BabyJac and she said her skin is much better after Vaseline - the scars are fading.

    BabyJac, if you see this...post your experience so others can benefit too!!

    Re: Who is using Vaseline for scars & red marks?

    Don't know ifthis helps but I work w/babyjac so I see her everyday & her skin's less bumpy & her existing acne looks much much less inflamed/vicious. Maybe it's the Vaseline & her combination of products but she's diligent abt the 6x a day even tho'she thinks she look like an idiot half the time!
    I dab peasize Vaseline on my little spots (I don't have acne) after applying RetinA only at nite & it's not hurting me! But I like it in that it's helping in not drying my face out.

    Re: Who is using Vaseline for scars & red marks?

    HI, phil & jen,

    Let's see,How long has it been? About 3 weeks now, I use BP almost all over my face and vaselline on the spots.

    My face is like phil said 'baby smooth', the redness is still there, but the smoothness is really very convinsing. These days when I apply vas with cotton bud, I can see some brownish thing sticks on it, believe they are dead skin. Furthermore vas is the best moisturizer ever to be used with my leftover proactiv BP!!
