I Have new and old ance scars that were picked and picked... I'm 25. I don't know how old you are but you have to realize that older skin takes longer to heal. "keromask" is a concealer that helps me not to pick because it covers pretty good (not perfect) but I feel I can go out in public and the scars just look like sun spots like every one elses face. I go tanning too.. once a week and its helps keep pimples away and even though it makes scars seem darker i can wear a darker foundation makeup/keromask concealer that helps me feel prettier and therefor I seem to pick less.. the more beautiful I feel. Also The better i look the more I feel like taking good care of my skin.. like i have something that is worth keeping healthy and clean. Keromask is expensive but.. they give you 10$ trials so you can try it first.. also i use it alone with no other makeup which helps me avoid more breakouts.. you can't cover scabs.. so don't bother covering those..but you may find that you pick less!! for ten dollars give it try.. www. beauty cafe. com.

Mychelle "Clear Skin Serum" (organic/natural) has helped me to avoid a lot of new scarring, and has helped with my existing scars, too. It's one of the few products that seems to really help my skin and not make my acne worse (even after I've picked at it). I've been using it for several years, and it has helped me more than any other product. It's kind of expensive, but for me it's been worth it. http://www.mychelle.com/news/clearskin.htm I also find that foundation breaks me out terribly, so I don't use it. I moisturize with pure aloe gel mixed with a gel bronzer, and then spot-cover my blemishes. I use a liquid concealer (Maybelline True Illusion is my favorite) and then a stick concealer to cover the rest of whatever the liquid doesn't (Maybelline Pure.Concealer is the BEST!). Then I use an oil-free pressed powder to "set" the concealers - dab it onto the covered blemishes with the powder puff and then blend with a kabuki brush. I wish I didn't have acne and didn't pick... but until either or both of these things change, THANK GOD for good cosmetics! (I also wish we didn't live in such a shallow, appearance-obsessed culture, but that's not likely to change anytime soon either...). Good luck!
