Ways to Reduce Acne Scars
How many times have you allowed your acne to affect social aspects of your life? Maybe you cancelled a date or called in sick to school or work to avoid the embarrassing looks or comments that may develop. The only thing worse than a sudden and rapid breakout is the scars that these breakouts can leave behind. Try these tips to reduce scarring:
1. Cocoa Butter
This soaks into the skin, reducing the appearance of any imperfection that could be resting on the surface of your skin. This lotion also helps increase the effectiveness of your body’s natural healing. Cocoa butter should only be applied to the body, but not the face or neck otherwise it can cause you to breakout.
This process takes off the top layer of dead skin, leaving fresh and new skin behind. This fresh skin looks healthy and glowing, reducing the appearance of acne scars on the face.
Sunscreen needs to be used daily to protect the skin and reduce the redness that comes from acne scars. When scars get exposed to sun they can become more irritated, so protecting the skin before you go out is the best way to reduce the appearance of all acne scars.
4. Baking Soda
Baking Soda and a Water paste: This combination will help to clean impurities away from acne scars while also exfoliating the skin, leaving fresh skin behind.
Following these four simple suggestions can not only help reduce the appearance of these acne scars, but they can help you regain parts of your life that you would have otherwise avoided. You do not need to make excuses to save yourself from feeling embarrassed anymore! Take control over your life and your skin once again, and enjoy all of the many things life has to offer! But remember, you notice your imperfections more than anyone else so don’t allow scarring or acne breakouts to take over your life. Go out and enjoy life regardless!!!
