RESTORE YOUR SKIN TO ITS NATURAL BEAUTY
Acne scars are the result of your body’s inflammatory response to irritation in the deeper layers of the skin. When the body over-reacts to acne bacteria, this can lead to inflammation. Intense inflammation over time causes scarring. Some people are more prone to scarring than others and end up with significant scars.
Generally, acne scars are classified into four types: ‘ice pick’ (deep, narrow pits), ‘hypertrophic’ (thickened, raised mass of tissue; keloid), ‘rolling’ (bands of ‘wave-like’ skin) and ‘boxcar’ (oval depressions with steep sides). Because acne scars are most commonly found on the face, they mask a person’s beautiful skin underneath and can lower a person’s self-esteem.
HOW TO PREVENT ACNE SCARS
The best treatment for acne scars is preventing them from occurring.
Since inflammation is the single greatest cause of acne scar development, here are a couple tips to help prevent acne scars.
Direct exposure to sunlight can prolong breakouts, even making them worse in people who are prone to acne. Avoiding direct sunlight at peak hours, using sunscreen, hats and other forms of protection.
Resist the urge to pick at acne, even when the pimple has resolved and dry skin is left behind. By picking at your skin bacteria can spread deeper and can cause collagen loss which may prevent the skin from healing normally.
