Our confidence tends to diminish when pimples enter our world. But sometimes life after this mortifying display can be worse. Do you suffer from acne scars? Whether it scars into a darker spot or indentation, don’t fear – there’s tips below to prevent acne scars from interrupting your life.

Exfoliate

Once or twice a week you should be exfoliating. This will remove all dead skin and free your pores. Nearly all brands have an exfoliating face wash in their collections. The least expensive option being Clean & Clear. 

 

Spot it early

As soon as you feel a zit coming, it’s a good idea to apply a dot of cream or gel for spot treatment. This will work against any inflammation and redness.

Don’t touch

As tempting as it might be, don’t pick, pop or scratch your pimples. That’s the easiest way to scarring. 

 

Dry it up

Patches of zits don’t have to cause anxiety if you treat them quickly. Purchase a good face drying lotion to absorb excess oil to keep pimples at bay.
