Many of us have acne scars. No matter where you grew up, no matter who you are; it’s bound to happen to many of us. I personally have had a lot of problems with scarring because I chose to pick at my face a lot. If this sounds like you, then you may want to read on and see a few of the solutions we’ve come across.
I want to start off by telling you about the product that has personally worked for me. I began using Proactiv when I was about 14 or so. I had previously had scarring and although that wasn’t my main concern, I started using the product.
I want to say within about a month, all my scars were gone (which were all over my chin, forehead and the area between my eyes and ears). Now, since then; I have quit using Proactiv and more scars have appeared because I continue to pick, but I’m positive that if I were to begin using Proactiv again, I would be able to get rid of acne scars.
Now on to other things that we have found to work. Before we get into the tough solutions, let’s begin with a few things you can do that will naturally get rid of your acne scarring. First of all, it’s important to wash your face with antibacterial soaps at least once a day.
You’ll want to avoid foods that contain a lot of fat or oils. It’s also important to not pop your pimples, which we know is tough. Trust us, leaving them alone is the best option because not only can picking damage the skin but you can also get unwanted bacteria into your skin, causing an irritation.
If you aren’t satisfied with those results, you may want to talk to your doctor about chemical peels, Dermabrasion or Laser Resurfacing.
