As a 30 something old year female, I have had my own fair share of dealing with acne years ago. It was a horrible expensive and one I cannot forget ever! Acne sucks! Most of us cam testify to how horrible acne is and the scars it can leave behind. I have been able to get rid of all my acne scars thankfully, which is why I decided to write this how to get rid of acne scars fast post. Here are some useful skincare tips that may help you get rid of your acne scars fast.
Use Vitamin C skincare products
Vitamin C skincare products are great for lightening acne scars and hyperpigmentation. It also stops new dark spots from appearing. I find Vitamin C serums great to use. They have helped clear my acne scars and I still implement Vitamin C products into my daily skincare routine. My current favourite is this Viola Skin Anti-Ageing Vitamin C Serum.
Exfoliate your skin weekly
Exfoliating your skin every week is a great way to improve your facial skin and get rid of acne scars if any. Getting rid of dead skin cell with a facial brush is a quick and effective way of exfoliating today. I use my exfoliating facial brush once a week and it leaves my skin looking smooth and supple. Exfoliating the skin, scar will reveal the smoother skin beneath. If you are battling with acne, you should try this Magnitone London First Step Vibra Sonic Compact Face Cleansing Brush below.
If you are battling with serious acne scars, laser acne scar removal treatment may be the best solution for you. There are now ways to reduce the appearance of acne scars thanks to the advancement in technology. I would recommend this for extreme cases only. If you are dealing with mild acne scars, you can easily get rid of them with the right skincare routine.
This is a no brainer but still worth a mention. You should apply sunscreen to protect your skin; use a minimum of SPF 30. This will also help you get rid of the acne scars gradually and protect your skin from more damage.
Stop picking the face
No matter how tempting it is to pick your face when you have acne, try not to! Picking your face will only lead to more acne scars that may take years to go away.
Cleanse the face
Cleansing your face is important to ensure your skin stays clean and healthy. Sleeping with makeup on is the last thing your skin needs, especially when you are trying to get rid of acne scars. It is also important to use the right cleanser and the right amount of cleanser – the size of a water bottle lid.
There are many home remedies for getting rid of acne scars like the use of Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil, Lemon Juice, Baking Soda, and more. These are based on many different experiences and worth trying if the tried and tested methods don’t work for you.
