14 Sep 5 WAYS TO TREAT ACNE SCARS
There are hundreds of products out there that treat acne (or at least claim to). If you have suffered or are suffering from acne then you know the horror and humiliation that comes with it. Men and women suffer from this every day and it’s no joke! Whether it’s popping up at the most inconvenient times or sticking around for the long haul, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. So, what can be worse than pimples? It’s the destruction they leave behind!
Depending on your lifestyle these are 5 different ways to work with those awful acne scars! Since unfortunately airbrushing isn’t an option in real life.
IT’S ALL NATURAL BABY
Aloe Vera is one of the oldest ingredients used in herbal medicine dating back more than 2,000 years!! So you know this stuff is good! Aloe Vera purifies blood and stimulates cell growth, healing damaged and scarred skin. It’s also a natural anti-inflammatory that can reduce the redness, inflammation, and pain that comes with stubborn acne.
LETS GET MED-I-CAL
Retinol is a more surface level way of clearing acne scars. It’s also a well-known way of preventing future breakouts. Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative, and is typically used in a cream and applied topically. It works like little PacMans running around removing all the dead skin cells which then boosts collagen production and speeds up cell turnover.
CRYSTALIZE YOUR SKIN
Microdermabrasion- This is a more aggressive approach than using a topical cream. Microdermabrasion is typically performed by licensed estheticians. It works by spraying tiny crystals to remove the outer layers of the skin. After microdermabrasion treatment, your skin could be sensitive and pink for up to 10 days.
GET WITH THE TIMES
Laser Treatments– There are many lasers out there that can rejuvenate skin cells, but a specific laser called the PicoSure is best known for treating acne scars. To get a little technical this laser works at 1 trillionth of a second, while others operate in the billionths. In short, this mean the PicoSure decreases its chances for any burns or damages during treatment. It takes about 15-20 minutes per treatment and can show full corrections in 3-4 treatments!
BE A COVERUP GIRL!
Make-up/ lightening creams– Need a quick fix? There are miracle techniques out there to make your skin look flawless without looking like a “cake face”. YouTube makeup tutorial videos can be very helpful as well by demonstrating step-by step, easy to learn techniques. There are also specialty makeup lines, such as Dermablend, that can provide 24 hour waterproof- full coverage makeup for all skin tones.
We hear phrases like, “embrace your inner beauty” and “don’t judge a book by its cover” but why go through life with flaws you can fix? Be confident in your skin!
