Not everyone who gets acne gets acne scars.
And really, we feel like that's just adding insult to injury.
While we would love to make acne scars and marks disappear overnight, we can tell you now it’s a journey that requires a little patience.
What we can help you with is a bit of information that may just help you prevent and treat acne scarring with the best products for acne scars and blemishes.
Firstly, What Causes Acne Scars?
Before you start looking for the best acne scar removal products, it’s important to understand what causes acne scarring, so you can figure out what your strategy should look like.
Genetics play a key role in determining whether or not you’re likely to scar from acne. If this is the reason you’re scaring it’s best to take a preventative approach and use clarifying products that help to minimise congestion and acne.
When acne becomes inflamed, it can damage the skin underneath and in order to heal the skin a scar often develops. Delays in treatment, as well as picking, squeezing and popping can exacerbate scarring. In this scenario it’s more about how you treat your acne when you have it.
In both scenarios if you do end up with scarring, we have a host of products for different skin types, which help speed up the repair process and make those marks make a move.
