If I mix 1vitamin e facial oil capsule into my moisturizer will it fade away my pimple /acne marks nd is is gud for skin?

Acne Mark: Acne isn't the only thing that can cause discolored skin marks. Other dark spots and types of skin hyperpigmentation can come from aging, sun damage, and even using birth control pills. To help them go away faster, wear sunscreen consistently, you can also consider using prescription retinoids, like differin, retin-a, or tazorac, (tazarotene) chemical peels, lasers, and microdermabrasions from a dermatologist. ...Read more

Perhaps: Perhaps this could be scabies? Scabies is the human itch mite that is passed from person to person. It is an extremely itchy infestation that can cause intense itching at night. Take a look at the picture in the link to see if this looks possible. Typically, there are red bumps and excoriations about the trunk and especially the extremities. Diagnosis is best made by a skin scraping by a dermatologist and then Permethrin cream is applied to the affected persons (and all clothing and linens are washed). I hope this helps! ...Read more

A product called bio-oil, they said for scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging&dehydrated skin, how far its write and do you recommend to use it?

A product called bio-oil, they said for scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging&dehydrated skin, how far its write and do you recommend to use it?

Nothing special!: There's nothing wrong with bio-oil except its claims to cure everything from acne to scars, to wrinkles and age spots. Wow, that must be some great stuff! But really, all it does is moisturize and lubricate dry flaky skin. Any good lotion will do the same. If it really did all it claims, it would be regulated as a pharmaceutical by the fda. If sold as a cosmetic, it's proven not to "work" as drug. ...Read more

What's the best way to treat mild back acne? I also hav derma oil which gets rid of scars stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Is that okay to use?

Usually need Rx: Acne on the trunk usually requires both a topical agent such as benzoyl peroxide, retinoic acid derivatives, and/or salicylic acid, plus a systemic antibiotic for at least a few weeks which you'll need to get from your physician. You are free to use your derma-oil but if you actually believe it will "get rid of" scars and pigmentation, you'll be disappointed. The world's full of misleading ads. ...Read more

That doesn’t bother some people, but if you have a tendency to get clogged pores (blackheads, etc), coconut oil might exacerbate that problem. ...Read more
