Hi there. I've just finished reading one of your posts from back in May, and I am sooo hapy I did. I can't believe that I have finally found someone with the EXACT same problems as me. The red scars, the makeup, the boyfriend, the family.....THAT'S ALL ME!!

I've never had a really bad problem with acne, just the scattered pre-period breakout(one or two zits). A few years ago, I started noticing that everytime I got a zit(which wouldn't be that often) it would leave a scar. Even if they weren't that bad and I wouldn't pick at them. Now a few years later, my chin has one huge scar and about six or seven small scars that I am dying to get rid of, because once they are gone, I will be able to throw away all of my concealer, foundation, and powder that I have been using for years.

My boyfriend has NEVER seen me without makeup on. Neither has my family. One day my makeup was starting to rub off and my scars started showing. My mother looked at me and said" what have you got all over your chin?". I felt like dying.....I LOVE tanning and having a brown face, but I have been ghost white for so long, because tanning will make scars darker. And if I tan my face I will have white spots on my chin where I apply concealer. Everyone always asks why I am sooooo pale (I am really pale naturally), and I tell them that I don't like to get sun on my face because it is bad for your skin. I don't want to say "well, you see I have these acne scars...".

Currently I am using Hydroquinone lotion and egg yolk masks to fade them, but no results so far. All I want is to be able to wash my face and go out, with no makeup at all. I hate makeup, but I am a total slave to it. I have flawless skin, exept on my chin. I am desperate to get rid of these scars.

Anyways, when I read your message, I completley felt your pain. I feel you and I are in the exact same boat. I would love to hear from you and see how you are coming along with your skin (the message I read was from May). I would also love to know what products you are using to help fade your scars, and if you are seeing any results. And if you stumble upon a miracle cure PLEASE SHARE IT WITH ME! If I hear back from you, I would gladly update you on how my battle is going. Our stories are so similar, maybe we could help each other. I hope to hear from you.
