Most of you all know me from the Chatty Shack and Acne General, but I don’t think I’ve ever posted here…
I don’t really have the horrendous breakouts that I used to (occasionally my skin goes a bit nuts, but it’s mainly from eating too many carbs or sweating…!), so I’m thinking I need to move on to the next step: dealing with my scars.
I’ve got all kinds–shallow, deep, ice pick…my chin, under it, and the tops of my cheeks have it the worst. Where should I start? I don’t think I can afford laser treatment, etc. How much does microdermabrasion cost?
I also have some red marks from cysts that have come and gone (and occasionally come back again). What’s a good fade cream that won’t put me in the poor house?
I realised long a go that I would never have smooth, perfect skin, but I can at least make it look a bit healthier. I was on acne meds for so long that once I finished my second course of accutane about 8 or 9 years ago, I just stopped being so agressive and just used OTC products. Now that I’m getting a bit long in the tooth, I think I need to start looking at moisturisers–maybe…? I just am not sure where to start–feel like a babe in the woods here!!
Can someone point me in the right direction? It’s so frustrating–I’m still dealing with acne, and now I have to worry about wrinkles. Bloody *^%*& h*ll!!
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?
