If it’s not enough dealing with spots, coping with the scars that follow can be just as frustrating.
Scars can appear in many different forms, most commonly as darker patches (hyperpigmentation) as well as indents in the skin (ice pick and boxcar scars).
Scarring can be permanent so it’s important to do everything you can to help prevent it.
Following these 7 rules will dramatically reduce your chances of acne scars.
1) Don't squeeze spots (especially under the skin ones or cysts)
As tempting as it can be to think ‘just this one won’t hurt’. They all add up. As satisfying as it might feel right now, resist the urge. Future you will be forever grateful!
2) Don’t pick at scabs
Give your spots time to heal or you will continue to damage your skin, causing scars.
3) Exfoliate and cleanse regularly
Anything you can do to encourage skin cell turnover and remove dead skin cells will help to fade scars more quickly, as well as discourage new spots from forming.
4) Always wear SPF
Sun damage can slow down the healing process and increase the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Keep your skin protected from the sun, especially in the Summer months.
5) Use a serum that regenerates your skin cells
Our Regenerative Serum is designed to target scars, fading them more quickly by regenerating your skin cells at a much faster rate, encouraging fresh, new skin in its place.
6) Treat acne as soon as possible
The sooner you can get your acne under control, the less likely you will be to scar your skin. Try our Anti-blemish & Scar Repair Serum, which naturally kills bacteria and reduces inflammation. If topical treatments aren’t working for you, make an appointment with your doctor or Dermatologist.
7) Don’t scrub/ wash your face too harshly
Be careful not to scrub active spots or healing scabs too hard or you will risk breaking the skin and damaging it further. Be gentle and avoid any areas with broken skin.
Remember that you will notice your acne scars more than anyone else.
No-one has perfect skin, and that’s what makes you so beautifully unique.🥰
