As a teen, none of us have probably been able to resist the thought of popping a pimple or acne. Well, that leaves us with a scar, reminding us of those pimply days. Whether it happened two months ago or it’s been ages, you may be still; living with the old acne scars, knowing no ways to get absolutely rid of it. Even the best acne scar removal treatment will not be able to give you the result you are looking for, unless you know how to apply the treatment properly.
The effectiveness of acne and scar removal treatment depends on the way you are carrying it out. If you are not persuasive about the treatment, it is likely that you will not get any positive result. So, you must learn about your options and start taking the necessary steps.
Exfoliate your Facial Skin
Old acne scars are deep-seated; they may lay several layers under the skin. You should exfoliate your skin gently with a fine grained facial scrub. Work it gently into your skin with some warm water, moving your fingers in circles before your rinse and pat dry.
Glycolic acid is one of the most potent ingredients that can exfoliate the skin and remove dirt and dead skin cells. After using it for several months, acne scars and discolorations will start diminishing, and new skin will develop.
For acne scar removal, it is very important to undergo thorough skin conditioning from time to time. To keep the skin properly conditioned, use a light and non-oily moisturizing cream or lotion. It will make your skin smoother, softer and suppler. It will improve the skin’s own ability to remove scars by regenerating fresh and healthy skin cells.
Apply skin moisturizer containing macadamia oil and avocado oil. These are rich moisturizing ingredients that can promote smooth, healthy and glowing skin. Also, these ingredients help in healing the skin much faster, thus making it smoother. Over time, it will show remarkable improvement in the quality of your skin, while reducing the appearance of scarring and increase elastin and collagen levels.
Condition the skin with 100 percent coca butter. Simply apply the cream to your face and allow it to blend with the fingertips. It will sit in about 20 minutes and you can wipe it off.
Apply Bleaching and Skin Lightening Products
There are different types of bleaching and skin lightening creams and products that should be applied to your skin to remove old scars. Do not let the words “bleaching” have adverse effects on your mind. You will not have a white-washed face or features after using. Simply choose skin creams containing 2% hydroquinone for bleaching.
