I used to have considerable acne in my teen years. I still have more pimples than I'd like these days, but the rate has significantly died down. The problem is, whenever I do get a pimple, it leaves a red mark for a very long time. At any given moment it looks like I have more acne than I actually do. Under focused inspection you can it's just red skin and nothing else, but I generally think it looks pretty bad.
I don't know why my skin is like this. It might just partly be that I'm so pale, but still, it seems like it takes a really long time to heal. There are two particular spots of on either cheek bone (amazing symmetry) that are particularly strange because they seem to be recurring breakout spots that never entirely go away, and they feel wider and more subcutaneous than normal pimples.
Anyhow, I'm not looking for something that makes acne go away (I wasted enough time on that when I was a teenager), I just want to know if there's something that will make my blemishes disappear.
