Mirror, mirror on the wall, please tell what’s the biggest problem of all?
“Oh Master, acne is the biggest problem of all.”
Removing acne is an arduous task. However, the thing more dreadful than removing pimples is the scars it leaves behind. These dark marks are tough to get rid of. So, for all the labour, here’s a guide on how you can tackle this head-on.
No pricking or popping
No matter how tempted you are to get the bulging pimple away from your face, always, remember one thing that your first task is to prevent acne scars. Pricking or popping it causes scarring which becomes permanent over time.
Treatments for spots
Treatments of spots with the help targeted formulas are quite essential. This will also help you in tackling your scarring head. Using these creams consistently can lead to a significant reduction of acne.
Using retinoid for removal of scars
Topical retinoid are an acne treatment with blurring benefits and scar-smoothing. Further, this also speeds up cell regeneration with a noticeable change in your skin’s texture. This can help in reducing discolouration by making scars less noticeable.
Use of AHAs
A key ingredient in the products made for the treatment of acne, Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) help in removing dead skin cells and clogged pores. What’s better is that AHAs assist in making acne scars less noticeable. Using mild acid in AHAs exfoliates the outer layer of the skin in removing discoloration and rough skin. Using a BHA Peeling Solution is a good option for AHAs.
