Hello everyone,
I'm new here and i really need some advice for my face. I have really red and blotchy skin after I wake up in the morning(i'm really pale in the mornings but my skin is blotchy and red). Then when I just barely touch it, it turns red! My chin is really broke out and has scars. I've tried using just about every OTC product and it doesn't help. I've used Retin-A and it helps for like a day or two but then it just breaks out again. Also when I wake up, my face is extremely oily. Any advice for what I can use or do?
Jani,
I have been using Noxema but I have always used that. Maybe it's from the Retin-A. I haven't used it in awile b/c it dried my face out so bad. Do you think I should try that Cetaphil everyone is talking about on here (for oily skin)? My scars are from my younger years from when I picked at them..I know I know..LOL. I have tried pure Vit. E oil and that doesn't even work. I tried tea tree oil, but it caused rebound acne. They are red areas, not pitted or anything. My acne is probably considered mild all over but moderate on my chin. Why do you think my face turns red and blotchy when I touch it?
Thanks for replying so fast Lauren*10

You probably have oily/sensitive skin. I tried the Cetephil and I personally didn't like it (although I'm sure a lot of people will have different opinions about that).

I would try to clear up my acne first. Then worry about your scars.

For me, Proactiv worked (again you will get mixed opionions on that too).

The best soap/cleanser I have used is Neutogena original formula transparent facial bar. The acne formula dried me out. You might want the Dry/sensitive formula.

Everyone's skin is soooooooooooooo different. It is so hard to give advice to someone on their skin. What you can expect is just a lot of different opinions on what worked for each individual.

I wish I Could Have Been More Helpful. Maybe someone else on this board can be more Helpful to You..Best Of Luck...........
