Scientific Rx: Just use the stuff as a wash. This will clear mild acne in a few weeks. If it seems not to be working, your physician can add something that will work with it to clear you. Since you're female, it may be spironolactone, an antibiotic, or the oral contraceptive pill. Severe acne may require stronger Rx. Acne's unrelated to lifestyle; ignore "pop" advice. You're an adult now & need it gone.

Tips for scars: If out in the sun, be sure to apply sunscreen to the scar--direct sunlight can make scars very unsightly. Vitamin E oil is great for scars--gently massage it in. I have also seen good results with Mederma. Alternatively, there are compound creams that pharmacies make for scar treatment. These usually have steroids and other medications. Careful with chemical peels, you may irritate it more.
Home chemical peel: I do not recommend home chemical peels for any of my patients. While chemical peels are a very commonly performed procedure, they are not without risk of unexpected outcomes that can be worse than the original problem you were trying to improve. I encourage you to consult with a cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist.
See an expert: Chemical peels can be tricky. Best to see a paramedical aesthetician, who can use their experience to help you select the best peel for your skin type, and help you through it with a minimum of problems or complications.
Not recommended: Only if extremely low potency.Get a more detailed answer ›
Simple Care: Sunburn is response of the tissues to injury from solar radiation. It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to the area to promote healing. Do not use ice as this can injure already injured skin. Cool water soaks can help as can taking anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen). Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring . Good skin cream applied daily/gently helps.See 1 more doctor answer
Chemical peel: This would be a bad idea. Chemical peels occur because the chemical agent (usually an acid) burns and causes necrosis to the epidermis and dermis. This can cause permanent scarring. Chemical peels should only be applied by a doctor that is experienced in the procedures. A dermatologist can give you creams that will cause some exfoliation that you could use at home.
