  • Redness = Low immunity?

    This was something my facialist said....

    I have several red scars left by acne which are rather persistent. They have been there like for ages and refuse to fade away...

    So my facialist was saying that my immune system was weak. I have neva heard of such theory has anyone encountered that before?? Then she went on saying my skin is too thin...

    Ya..those red scars have been there for so long and nothing i tried seems to help. I got a fren who have all these scars too but hers disappeared within 2 weeks. She used hydroquinone but that seems to have no effect on me

    Will Vitamin C mask and daily intake of Vit C help? I am taking Apple Cider Vinegar every morning now, can Vit C and ACV be mixed and taken together?

    Anyone has any advise? Thanks..

    Hi jace, is there any treatment your facialist recommend you to take? I've very skin that turns red very easily. I can get quite depressing looking at my skin.

      They recommended Vit C treatment. Which cost like a few hundred for just a few bottles that last like only a few days due to oxidation.

      Sometimes i dun really trust *** the facialists says. Cos they have contradicted themselves a couple of times already.

      Like sometimes they say I have stress then breakout but its during vacation so how can i have stress. They say I ate too much oily stuffs so breakout but all i ate were soupy stuffs. So I dun really trust what they say. Sometimes they say it due to the COMMISSIONS they will get if you buy their products.

        Ya... I get what you mean. I'm not prone to scar, just redness. I've done Vit C treatment at DRx, but it's too expensive for me to sign on more sessions. So I'm finding some other alternative, like EOs.

        I guess your facialist might be wrong, scarring is due to low metabolism rate, and low cell renewal rate, as far as I'm told.

          hi,


          i think huili is correct. ur red scars takes a long time to heal because ur skin cell have a slower turnover rate.

          using vit C will help lighten the red scars beacuse it helps boost the skin cells. personally i think the best vit C to use for red scars is Cosme Decorte vit C powder (do search & read up on the Cosme Decorte thread). it is the fastest & most effective form of vit C, well worth the high price. Diligently use it for a few days, u will be able to notice the effect. i've tried other vit c masks before, but will still rate the CD powder form best

          alternatively, u can try collagen masks. it can help to speed up ur skin tissue renewal hence i believe it will help in the fading of the scars.

              hi the price is available at Singapore Price List


              it is called Fresh Concentrate D-NA. A box of 4 tubes costs $113.

              should be alright to use even if u r having breakouts. so far not a problem for me. but i hardly get breakouts anymore.

                jace, i have sensitive skin too, face flush easily around cheeks area. its true about what vit c that it reduces scar marks and gives your face that radiant look. i've been using 180degree vit c face wash n taking vit c supplements diligently for weeks and can really c improvement to my face in terms of more even skin tone, less flushes, lightening of marks..
                the vit c face wash costs $68, also available in a set with mist, sunblock n moisturizer, but i m only using the face wash alone with my other skin care..

                  Vit C is reputed to
                  - lighten skin
                  - speed up recovery rate of skin
                  - anti-oxident , protecting the skin

                  if you have sensitive skin prone to redness, be careful when testing out Vit C products as they are slightly acidic and may cause more redness. I know of a couple of people with sensitive skin whose skin would flush upon using vit c.

                    actually, IMO, taking vitamin C orally is even more important than using facial products infused with vit c. I realise that when you take vit c orally, you see that your skin heals faster. thus, take more fruits (orange) or vit c tablets. On the plus side, chewable vit c is so tasty!

                            I think the vit content depends on the tablet you take. they range from 50 to 1000mg.

                            not an expert in this at all but i recall reading that effervescent vit C has a high dosage and is taken as a shock treatment when one is falling sick / sick.

                            For daily purposes, time release is supposedly better as our body can only absorb a certain amt of vit C at a time. Any extra is passed out of body. Hence if we take a high dosage in a short period, most of it will not be absorbed.

                              u are right snowstar, that's y supplements should be taken twice a day to allow our body to better absorb it, especially for vit c. vit for one tablet can sometimes be equivalent to more than 3 of those chewable ones, so better to pop one and get the best out of it ya...
