Acne scars are among the most frustrating, and embarrassing, skin problems. There are several different types of scars, from slight discoloration to deep scarring. Depending on whether it's a newer or older scar, you have to treat them differently. Here I want to share some advice on getting rid of those marks once and for all.
The first and most important thing anyone can do, is prevent. Prevent, prevent, prevent. It's much easier to keep ailments away than to treat them. Start with a good skincare routine, avoid picking and popping or causing any trauma to the skin. Always use spf, even when you think you don't need it. All of these will help in avoiding acne scars.
If you have any fresh scars, you want to treat the inflammation right away. Anything that boosts the production of collagen in the skin will help to prevent new scars from becoming old ones. Thickening the skin helps to make the scars less noticeable.
If you have those pink or red marks, salicylic acid will help to reduce redness, brighten skin and produce cell turnover. Plus, it'll reduce breakouts altogether.
Vitamin C is also another good ingredient to any of your skincare products to help skin repair and brightness. This will lighten scars with consistent use.
Again always remember spf!! This will always help to prevent your spots from getting darker and more stubborn.
Love and light,
