Do you want to build a skincare routine for acne-scarred skin?
The scars on your face often appear after a breakout. When sore, swollen blemishes finally disappear, they’re often replaced by a red or brown marks which develop when the inflammation from breakouts damages the collagen in your skin. This hyperpigmentation occurs as the skin heals, so although they are called scars, as long as they are red or brown, they will fade – and can fade faster with the help of the right skincare routine.
It’s important to use a good cleanser to keep future blemishes at bay and stop scars before they even happen. This gentle foaming cleanser will help to rid skin of any impurities including dirt and sebum which clogs pores and leads to more breakouts.
Exfoliating is important to get rid of impurities and dead skin. Exfoliate twice a week to see good results and avoid exfoliating every day.
3. Use micellar water
Another preventative measure – double cleansing will help to keep pores clear of blemish-causing buildup. Start by removing your makeup with a micellar water (which is super gentle and won’t irritate breakouts) before you go in with an oil-based cleanser.
4. Use a SPF
Sun exposure will make pigmentation much worse – wearing a high SPF every day is truly the best way to fade your scars as fast as possible. It’s especially important because all the chemical exfoliation you need to fade scars leaves the new upper layer of skin exposed and more sensitive to sun damage.
