Pimple scars

Come on be honest please... Do you notice a person's acne scars? I have a few. Not those dark scars that fade away over time. Mine look like craters. So I might be exaggerating a bit there. But I do have them. There are days when I can't look straight in the mirror because I'm bothered by them. Do you honestly notice pimple scars? OR they don't matter at all?

I don't bother pimple scars anymore. I am used to it. Logically for me, the moment that you start to noticed that pimple scars, that is also the moment it will spread thoroughly.

I get what you mean. THe more you stress about it the more it intensifies.

Dermatologist can offer creams or treatment, but I think it just meant to make the scar less noticeable and not to eliminate as people often wish. At first its the acne we try to get rid of, then later on the scars. What would be next? I agree that you shouldn't pay attention to it anymore. Take the necessary medication and worry no more.

Get rid of the my entire face? Yep it seems self-esteem has its highs and lows. We pick on the most trivial things when it's really really down.

It indeed is eye catching somehow. And I am not proud of when that's the first thing I look at in a person, not that I mean it, it's really just soemthing automatic.

I guess you're right. It's the first thing we see and we can't help. It's the first thing I see when I brush my teeth so I can't help it either.

It's a crazy suggestion but how about removing that mirror? Just kidding! There are treatments to remove scars. I just don't know if they're friendly to the pockets. But some people would drain all their funds just to fix those. You might consider asking around and saving up for that?

Not a few, but if there are a lot of them, how can you not notice? But after a while you get used to them and don't really think about them.

How can I not notice a crater on top of my nose? But it doesn't matter when I'm thinking of something else crazier to pick on.

Well of course I notice them if they are bad enough, but I don't look and think "ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww", it doesn't really even make it to a second thought, but it would be like if someone had a birthmark on their face, I would notice it, but not think anything about it. If you are really that worried about the way they look, you could ask your doctor about any creams or treatments to stop them from been so apparent. Bio Oil is supposed to be brilliant for scars, so you could try that, it is quite expensive (around £8 for a small bottle!), but it does work...

Pimples need to be handled carefully, never apply your nails, just keep face near a pot of boiling water, squeeze out with cotton pad, over your craters try applying turmeric paste, hope they will become lighter.. Thanks for sharing. Welcome always. Cheers. Professor

oh i have that kind of problem but it's not like big holes i have but the hoes in my pores are big. I am not able to make it disappear but i can make it smaller an less noticeable. i use facial mask. There are different types of products that you can buy at the pharmacy for a reasonnable price. A one use facial mask would cost roughly 1.75$canadien. Check for the type that would clean your face an refine your pores. You can also check burt's bee product. here is one interesting product you can use: http://well.ca/products/burts-bees-pore-refining-mask_8783.html It's a little more expensive but the feedback are good so you might want to give it a try. I ordered mine but didn't use it yet. As for my bestfriend, she had the same problems as you. I remember her big craters on her face. But now, her skin is perfectly pretty like a baby's skin. If you would look at her face now, nobody would know that she had acne. She used proactiv so it solved the problem. She signed up to become a proactiv member and she pays 40$ for each full kit then cancelled her membership wen her skin got perfect. And to answer to your question, I do notice pimple in the beginning but it doesn't matter afterwards.
