    I would stay away from active creams for a few months.

    Apply vaseline to a clean moisturised face in the morning. Prevent TEWL and help PIE marks fade.

    Obviously, use sunscreen if going out....

    Sun beds are not to be used. UV light is extremeley damaging. Try the LED machines but proceed with caution. The red wavelength may help your chest.

    I quit the Skinoren in the end. It was sensitizing my face way too much. It'd be going bright red at random throughout the day. Packed it in about 3 weeks ago and the flushing stopped. I still have...

    Skinoren is 20% Azelaic Acid. This may help, but before you start putting this on your face, get a 10% Azelaic Acid over the counter. The Ordinary do one. Build up to it slowly.
