At one point or another we have all had to deal with one of the worst skin care problems known to women everywhere – acne. Getting rid of acne is never an easy thing to do and for some people it can take them years to get rid of it. In fact most people are left with scars with no idea what to do to get rid of them.
The first choice to reducing and getting rid of acne scars is to visit a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon. However, that is not always an easy thing for us to do. That is why there are a few at home products and procedures that you can perform that could help to reduce this problem.
Some of the more popular products are at home chemical peels and dermabrasion. These products can help to diminish the scarring. If you have sensitive skin than you need to stay away from the retinol and alpha hydroxyl products right after you use the peels and dermabrasion to avoid irritation and redness. If you don’t have sensitive skin than you may want to consider using these products.
Dermabrasion is a technique that has been around for a few decades. A machine is used to remove the damaged skin – which is usually numbed first. Afterwards the skin will be raw and scabs will form. Don’t let this discourage you. After the scabs heal the skin will be red for a few weeks – but you will notice the results.
There are other products out on the market – which can help to reduce the scarring. Mederma and Rosehip seed oil are very common scar reducing creams that work well. For a more natural remedy you should try Aloe Vera juice and lavender oils.
