Asked: Getting rid of acne and acne scarring & reviews on Aveeno moisturizer?
I have very sensitive and dry skin. I had mild acne when I was 14-15 (I am 20 now) and I used Proactiv from then until about a year ago. My skin became absolutely perfect so I stopped using Proctiv exactly a year ago. I started breaking out soon after and it started getting worse and worse over time. I had black heads, white heads and even cystic acne (it wasn't severe but at times it got pretty bad). I started using Proactiv again a couple of weeks ago because I realized that sadly my skin is only clear when I use it. It has already cleared up my skin about 75-80%.
I will not stop using it, but now I suffer with acne scarring…and I know Proactiv does not help clear that up. I've been using lemon juice a few times a week, and exfoliating with sugar and baking soda, it doesn't break me out more, I think the acne scars have already began slightly fading. I was wondering if there are any other homemade tricks to fade acne scars?? I do not want to buy a exfoliater because I tend to break out from all exfoliators. Unless you guys can suggest a gentle one that will help fade scarring and won't break me out even more??
Proactiv dries out my skin so I am looking for a good moisturizer as well. I am currently using the Aloe Calming Moisturizer from The Body shop witch is alright. I feel like it does an okay job at moisturizing but that's about it. I am looking for something that will possibly help fade acne scars as well as moisturize my skin. I have looked into the Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer…has anyone tried it? Does it work?

Skin exfoliation can be done with a non-surgical treatment utilizing chemicals. This is called a chemical or acid peel. The chemical solution is applied to and rubbed on the skin where the solution dissolves the outer layers of the skin. While the tissue is dissolving, new tissue is stimulated; a natural reaction of the body’s built-in healing process, thereby exposing a new layer of skin.
Chemical peels come in various strengths and depths. The time for the solution to be left on the skin also varies. These all depend on the many different types of acid solutions elected to be used by the patient and doctor.
This type of acid peel is considered the strongest solution for facial peel. It is resorted to for the treatment of acute wrinkles and severely damaged skin. The consequential risk here is hyper pigmentation, or skin darkening.
Because this solution is very strong, it takes a longer time for recovery in comparison to other peels.
Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) Chemical Peels
The most popular of facial peels, AHA peels of low doses are usually available over the counter in drugstores for self-administration. For stronger doses, it is advised that a professional administers this treatment.
The AHA peels are generally used to treat moderate acne and common skin blemishes. Possible risks to this treatment are mild scabbing, itching and rash development.
Glycolic Acid Peel
This solution is comparable to the AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) peel. Its popular term is “lunchtime peel” since it can be carried out fast. Used for the treatment of acne and skin rejuvenation, the results of this peel stay for a month or so.
Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) Peel
TCA peels are the most common facial peels. The concentration of the acid makes it affect deeply or superficially on the skin. TCA is the accepted choice for skin tightening, improvement of brown spots, reduction of blemishes, smoothing of pigment problems and skin resurfacing.
Patients are advised to apply sunscreens and avoid direct sunlight after undergoing a TCA peel. There is also a very short time for recovery and its only possible risk is a lightening or darkening of the skin.
Costs of Acid or Chemical Peels
A survey of the Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery proclaims that there have been more than 556,172 chemical peels performed in the United States. The national average costs per treatment are as follows:
AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) Peel: $ 188
TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) Peel: $ 344
Phenol Peel: $ 1,100
Glycolic Acid Peel: $ 160
Many clinics now offer financing or payment packages to help the patients meet these costs.
The complete surgical or treatment time for administering a chemical peel is as short as 30 minutes to as long as 3 hours, depending on the concentration of the peel and the depth it is targeting to treat. In general, chemical peels last a long time.
