  • Pimples causing scars..

    Recently i've had a few pimples around my cheek and fore head area. Got the bad habit of squeezing it. And after it heals it becomes a scar. Looks So UGLY ="(

    How do i get rid of the scars? What products should i use. I notice i got quite alot of black heads around the forehead and cheek! What should i do every day to keep my complexion cleaR? =(

    hmm u using any products to treat the pimple after squeezing? Cos if you dont the wound left after squeezing will get infected and leave a scar.
    I have pimple prone skin for quite long and it is clearing up, lots of improvement. Mainly you want to use a good cleanser for oily/blemish prone skin, toner for oily skin, a pimple gel for the whole face, a good lightening treatment for the scar marks and then a moisturiser.
    If you feel you dont really know what to look out for, a good place to start is to visit Dr Ong of Maple Clinic. She is popular with people with acne problems and has good products to keep acne at bay. I am using her products as well, like the Vit C serum, Glycolic Gel and the Concealor which is a pimple treatment as well as a good concealor
    Also, once a week you may want to use a deep cleansing mask. You may want to try HABA mud pack or Kirare Detoxifying mask. I prefer the Kirare one although it is more expensive but it works wonders for acne skin. It is available in Sasa.
    I hope this helps! Also do use tissue to blot off excess oil secretion now and then as the oil attracts dirt that may cause pimples

      Thanks Heidi =))

      I started getting a few. Isnt that bad though just a few here and there. I dont use cosematics too. Should i be using toner every night? Will it help?
      What kind of toner and moisturiser should i use? Im using the ganier pimple cream and the lightening thing for my scars. It helps... but takes sometime still.

      I wanna get rid of the black head =( Looks ugly

        You know the best way of clearing the scar, as well as preventing it? DON'T SQUEEZE!!!! I've learnt the hard way, so I hope you don't have to. Sorry I sounded harsh but I really do mean well

          I have acne scars as well. Heard that rosehip oil helps so why not try that?
          its long term though, not a short term solution.

            i think it varies individually. for me even if i don't pick at my zits, scars still form.

            i've tried rosehip oil before and it took quite some time to see the results. using whitening products can also help to fade scars.

              Toner is just to help prepare the skin to asorb nutrients from moisturiser or treatment products that you will use after toner. Try to use oil free, non greasy toners perhaps mattefying kind. Moisturiser also use oil free one, water based type. Dont use Garnier, not a good brand as it's ingredients doesnt do much to improve skin condition well.
              Scars is not a one time application and it vanishes kind of problem. You gotta apply like whitening products that are rich in antioxidants to help not just lighten marks but also improve overall skin condition. If you dont really know how to squeeze pimples, like what Tintin said, dont squeeze wor.
              I have become a fan of Niks Products by Dr ong of maple clinic though so I tend to recommend the products from there. Maybe one suggestion if you dont really know what kind of products that suit you is consult Dr Ong for one time and let her prescribe some products suitable for your skin and then later follow her advice and use what she recommends you

                i read it somewhere in CLEO and i find it quite true; eating prawns can help prevent scars/ healing them faster. Something like that. Personally, im a very big eater of prawns. Like other ****, i do have pimples.. but one thing i notice is that my pimples though got squeezed, will not leave any scars. I don't know why, probably is the prawns thingy which i think was quite true. Cuz my sister is'nt a seafood eater. And her scars become "permanent resident".

                  that's really weird cos for my case. i used to eat prawns and all and no improvement to skin. went to a skin doc and she told me that seafood would have certain 'toxins' so its better not to take?

                      haha, im not too sure but ive stopped having seafood for around 2-3 yrs. now starting to take in bit more but still no shell food.

                      more fruits will help cos of the vitamin C right?

                          oh... maybe it varies from one to one? my sister used to avoid prawns.. her skin conditions were so poor that she went to see specialist. After so many visits and pocket's emptying, she got mad and started eating whatever she should'nt eat. Surprisingly, her conditions didnt worsen but improve abit. However, the permanent scars are there, just that new pimples doesnt leave scars at all. Maybe its the logic of yi du gong du.

                            Even though i don't squeeze my pimples, they still form 'marks' on my skin.
                            These marks take very very long to fade.
                            Although i eat lots of prawns & seafood, they don't seem to help.
                            I've tried applying whitening serum on the marks, but no effect.
                            Really need help here, cos the marks are so ugly!!!

                              They cost $98 each box but buy during promotion period is much more worth it. I bought 1 box at $78 where there is 4 sets of the powder and liquid and they gave me one more set free. Then decided to take a second box as it is half price of $78 ($39) and they gave another one more set free. So I got 10 sets of powder and liquid for $112 much cheaper and more worth it then non promotional price of $98 for 4 sets.
