ACNE SCARS HOW TO AVOID THEM AND HOW TO GET RID OF THEM?

Acne is far from uncommon and most of us will experience acne in our lifetime. While most people usually get rid of the worst of it during their teenage years, it is actually also possible and quite common to have acne breakouts in adulthood. The reason why most of us experience acne breakouts during adolescence is that the body then experiences increased production of sex hormones such as testosterone, which in turn increases the production of sebum in the skin. Oilier skin then has a higher risk of having clogged pores and sebaceous glands, which results in acne. Acne in adulthood is due to several different factors, including hormonal changes, but also other causes such as various diseases, medications and steroids, and stress.

When you ask skin therapists and experts for tips to avoid acne and also reduce acne scars, you will see that there is a lot of focus on good skin care. Among other things, it is important to have regular skin routines where the skin is cleaned both morning and night, which helps you remove dead skin cells and open up your pores. At the same time, diet also plays a certain role, where fast carbohydrates and even dairy products can affect acne. When it comes to which products you should look for, it's mainly the ingredients that play a big role. Look for ingredients like BHA, AHA and salicylic acid as well as vitamin A and retinol.

5 TIPS TO AVOID OR TREAT ACNE SCARS


The joy is usually great when a pimple finally disappears, but the joy doesn't last long if you see that the skin remains red, bumpy or scarred afterwards. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to prevent acne breakouts, uneven skin texture, and uneven skin tone.

  1. Use sunscreen even when you have pimples and impure skin all year round. The sun makes scars darker!

  2. Exfoliate regularly. You can alternate between a chemical peel (with alpha hydroxy) and a mechanical peel (with grains), both of which will remove dead skin cells and increase cell renewal.

  3. Use products with a lightening effect, among other things, products with vitamin C give good results. Ingredients such as grape extract, licorice extract and Kojic Acid also have good lightening properties.

  4. Do not squeeze pimples, this only worsens the inflammation.

  5. Use acne patches / pimple matches that help heal pimples faster.
