  • Great skin but my blemishes/acne won't heal.


    This has confused me for a while. I look at my skin and it's quite soft and clear. But all over my face I have blemishes from previous spots/acne. I can't figure out why my skin is good but my blemishes won't heal. I get a lot of Omega 3 from fish and seeds on a daily basis, so I find it hard to believe it's an inflamation thing, although I wouldn't rule it out.

    It would be wonderful if someone could give me an idea of why this is happening and what I can do to improve it.

    Thanks for your time,

    Can you describe what you mean by "blemishes"? If your skin is otherwise clear and you are not getting new acne, those could be scars.

      Kind of faint bruises are left behind for months and months after a spot is gone. So it looks like it just hasn't healed competently.

        Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Pretty common. They are often referred to as scars, they can take a long time to heal, months to years in some cases. Keep well moisturised.

          Try one of the following solutions...
          -hydroxy acid peel
          -aspirin mask (basically another acid peel, just cheaper). I pair this with a sugar (more acid) and scrub away for 1-2 mins before letting it sit.
          -tumeric paste (Indian peeps use it to lighten their complexion)
          -mederma. It is for healing scars.
