If you are having acne flare-ups and breakouts, I guess it will leave red marks that stay for 2 years or longer. Acne scars form like any other scars, with the severity depending on how deep the acne was.
So if you have suffered from the damaging and humiliating effects of acne then you know the feeling of how badly a miracle is needed to get your skin cleared up.
No one wants to miss out on the chance of treating and getting rid of acne scars. There is often no “best” solution that applies for everyone. Actually it depends on the skin on how it reacts to the specified or applied treatment. So it is expected that you will undergo some trial and errors before you find that product that suits your skin right.
Luckily, there are a lot of new treatments available that will help maximize a patient’s improvement. Here are some ways that will help you reduce acne scars’ redness:
1. Exfoliation or laser therapy. The marks extend deep into the skin and the only way to tone down the level of redness is through exfoliation or laser treatment. A dermatologist may help you with this. The process removes dead cells on the topmost portion of your skin giving you a clearer and younger looking skin. It will cost you a lot of money since it’s effective with multiple sessions. But the good news is there are peels available in the market that you could use at home. Home remedies may also work surprisingly well.
2. Most commonly known method is to get vinegar and dilute it with water. Take 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. In order for this to be effective rub it on the red marks in the morning and evening using a cotton swab. You may notice the results in 1 week. Just continue this method along with your acne treatments. If your skin can handle it, try increasing the concentration of dilution. Just make sure it will not irritate your skin and cause too much redness. Another simple trick that can help lighten your acne scar is to slice a lemon in half and rub the juices onto your acne scar. Regularly doing this can help lighten it.
3. Wear sunscreen protection when you go out in the sun since over exposure to sun will worsen the redness. Because sun exposure increases your melanin production this will make your scars become even darker. By applying a sunscreen this will reduce the redness caused by your acne. Make sure that you use one that has an SPF of at least 15, and it should have both UVA and UVB protection.
4. I would recommend you to start using an acne scar removal treatment product to treat and remove acne marks. There are also acne scars treatment products that you can use. Make sure you are wise enough to choose the perfect product for you that work. I know it will require some time but it’s much safe and less invasive. It cures and treats your acne scars slowly and effectively.
