Acne & Scarring Treatments

Acne & Scarring Treatments

No need to grin and wear it! Clear up that skin, and help heal and prevent new scars. We've got you covered.

These are our best picks for acne and scarring treatments.

Want to help reduce the severity of breakouts? Try using a gentle cleanser that cleans thoroughly, without stripping the skin of its natural defenses. Some acne treatments can dry out the skin, so further stripping the skin can lead to it overcompensating with oil... which in turn leads to more breakouts! Stop the cycle in its tracks with some of our favourite cleansers. 

Next, follow up with a treatment serum. If you have breakouts, don't be afraid of the word acid - Salicylic Acid is a common treatment for acne, as it unclogs pores and works as an anti-inflammatory. Botanical ingredients (such as Tea Tree Oil) are also wonderful anti-bacterial agents if you have current breakouts.

If you want to heal acne scars, a powerful serum is your best bet. Look for products with Vitamin A and AHAs such as Glycolic Acid or Kojic Acid. Vitamin C products are also wonderful to help fade scars and reduce the impact of sun damage.

Don't skimp on moisturiser just because you're breaking out. Your skin needs to be hydrated so it can properly repair itself, so choose a moisturiser in accordance with your skin type. Make sure you don't forget your sunscreen - many acne & scarring treatments can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so protecting your skin can make heal time quicker. 

You'll know if you need to try something else if after four weeks you haven't seen much of an improvement. We can give you suggestions on where to go from there.

Are you one of those people who doesn’t believe in primers? I used to be a primer sceptic, until I tried a really good one, then I understood the real necessity of priming your skin for makeup application. Imagine repainting a wall that hasn’t been wiped down, sanded and primed. Of course the finish is […]

I’ve always wished I had curly hair – my dead straight, fine and flat tresses just don’t do it for me. That was until I entered the beauty industry and I realised that having curly hair is like being part of an exclusive club. Unless you’re in this club, you don’t realise there’s lots of knots, […]

If a beauty editor tells you they personally love something, it means that product is good enough to outshine the 257 other products they used that week. So when I heard a few other editors raving about Pureology’s Colour Fanatic, I thought I’d better give it a whirl – I mean, it claims to have 21 […]
