Acne scars can be a horrendous thought for anyone. However, they are especially traumatic to teenagers – these young individuals going through a troublesome yet exciting phase in their lives are sure to have their self-esteem dealt a blow by the acne scars. Fortunately, there are a few ways to treat them through which these scars can go away for good or can become lighten which means less prominent;
This is the most widely-suggested solution to acne scars. However, there are a few things to remember while applying makeup. Firstly, always wash your face before applying makeup. Then apply toners and moisturisers that cleanse your skin. After this, you should apply a concealer that is half a shade lighter than your own skin tone. After this you dab the foundation onto your skin and the colour of the foundation should be the same as your skin tone. Remember, dab the foundation, not drag it across your face.
This method is relatively expensive and quite complicated as well. However, the expense is only one-time and you do not have to spend hours applying make up to your face. Laser treatment is usually suggested in cases where the scars are too deep to be hidden by makeup. Similar to laser treatment is the filler injection treatment. The filler injections simply fill up the indentations in order to level out the skin and make it appear smooth.
Scar Removal Formula & Other Medications
There are several such creams available in the market that can help the scar situation. Make sure to select the ones that are congruent for your specific type of skin. You may use a cortisone cream, which is harmful if you use for extended period of time but can be very effective in the short term. Cortisone cream is basically to deal with sore red skin by relieving the swelling.
Regularly Washing your Face
Although this may not exactly count as a groundbreaking tip, its importance cannot be overlooked. Make sure that you wash your face regularly and properly. Nowadays, most of us neglect washing our faces properly and I personally know many people who don’t wash their faces just because they think they don’t need to since they just had a shower. Do not make this rookie mistake. Washing your face helps to cleanse your skin much better than any cleanser ever will. On a different note, avoid over-scrubbing as this can cause irritation.
Lemon is an acidic gift of nature and the natural acids that it contains have magical properties. They can make your freckles disappear and whiten your skin as well as make those scars fade away. Simply take lemon juice and apply it on your skin using a cotton ball. Leave it there for five to ten minutes and then wash your face. Mix this juice with honey, almond oil and milk to make a miraculous mask that can be a cure for the unsightly scars. However, remember not to expose your skin to the sun immediately after applying lemon juice on your face.
Most importantly, be proud of your skin and do not let a few scars take away the brilliant shine of your personality. It is important to be confident and the last thing you want to do is to give up to a few dark spots on your skin. So be confident, be proud, use these tips and enjoy the perfect skin you have.
