Re: Show of Hands
Jun 9, 2007
I've had adult acne for 3 years (I'm 32), and for the last month, I haven't had any new spots, and my skin is so much better and less oily. Here's what I've been doing for the last month:

omega 3 fish oil from GNC (2 tablets daily)
saw palmetto (1 tablet daily)
GNC women's ultra mega (2 tablets daily)
the above tablets I take with a ton of water (they are big!), which I'm sure helps too
Yasmin

wash face every morning & evening with Olay Regenerist face wash
apply Neutrogena facial moisturizer with AHA & SPF 15 each morning
use Everyday Minerals some days as make up
apply nothing at night after face wash

My skin is the best its looked for months, the problem I have now is the deep red marks from old acne. I think they are fading a little, but its hard to tell. Was thinking of trying the Olay microdermabrasion? I know my skin is better - looks better, feels better, better texture, no more oiliness, no more spots - but because of the red marks it doesn't look much better to anyone else :(

In the past I've tried Duac & Differin, Yasmin, various OTC topicals and Proactive (3 -4 months of trying each thing), none of which really helped. I felt my skin needed a break, especially since I read BP ages your skin, and at my age I wanted to use products meant for older skin, and not teenage products.

My skin really does feel better now, and no new spots since I've started this regimen! Not sure which thing is making a difference, but I do love the Olay Regenerist wash.

I was about to go on Spiro but just cancelled my appt with the derm... hope I won't be making it again next month!!

Hope this helps someone else!

I have the same problem. My skin is smooth to touch, but the red marks give the appearance of pitted skin. So far everybody just says give it time to fade, but it could take a year! And it's almost imossible to cover with makeup completely. If you try the olay microdermabrasion and it works, please let me know :)
