Acne scars can be the worst! Ugh! Besides the putting you down, there’s the added pressure of hiding them with excess makeup, which in turn, suffocates the skin, leading to pimples and what not! So, it’s essential to invest in products that can improve our skin’s condition. Your skin goes back to being clear and you go back to feeling more comfortable without layers and layers of makeup weighing you down all the time. Here are a few recommended products by our Beauty Experts that will help you restore your to it’s former glory!
KIEHL’S CLEARLY CORRECTIVE DARK SPOT SOLUTION
Always voted as one of the best, this serum is a bit on the heavier side of the wallet. So, if you’re willing to spend a few more rupees, do go ahead because it works miracles. It contains a potent, latest-generation clarifying complex of Activated C, White Birch and Peony Extracts, all of which penetrate the skin’s surface to help correct the appearance of dark acne spots. It also helps in giving you visibly brighter and more radiant skin with daily use. Suitable for all skin types, safe and gentle to use even on sensitive skin.
CLINIQUE EVEN BETTER CLINICAL DARK SPOT CORRECTOR
Again, on the expensive side, this one is also a miracle worker. In about 4 weeks of use, you will surely see a visible difference in the tone of your spots by 1-2 shades. At the end of 12 weeks, they claim you will see a 58% improvement in your dark spots. The corrector serum is suitable for all skin types (YAYYY). Also, it is gentle enough to be used all the year round. So, this is definitely an option.
CLEAN & CLEAR ADVANTAGE MARK TREATMENT
This one is for all of us, who die a little on the inside when we have to spend a bit too much money on skin care and beauty products. Priced at only $8 or around PKR 800-900, it won’t hurt our pocket at all especially for the work it does. So, this one claims to treat pimples too when they break out and also treats acne scars which appear post-pimples. 2-in-1, what more could we ask for? However, before using it on your skin, do test it out on your wrist/arm to see if it suits your skin.
BIO OIL SPECIALIST SKIN CARE
This oil doesn’t hurt the pocket either. It has been a miracle worker for some women when it comes to scarring, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is a great moisturizer as well as a cuticle lotion. So, it’s safe to say it does a lot of work for the price it’s available for.
PALMER’S SCAR SERUM WITH VITAMIN E
Now, don’t let the size of it intimidate you from buying it. It is small, Yes! But, it works. So, why not get something less in quantity that works than something more in quantity that doesn’t work? Logic, right?
This Vitamin E serum tackles problems like scars from surgery, injury, burns, pimples, stretch marks, etc. The Vitamin E in it enables it to improve the appearance of your scars and imperfections.So, you get even skin tone and visibly reduced acne spots after using this one.
We hope this helps you in reducing your acne spots. But, always do try to set a daily skin regimen and try to avoid break outs that way. No pimples means no acne scars, right? Unfortunately, if you do happen to get pimples, then try to protect your skin using sunscreen so that the sun doesn’t get to your pimple to damage and irritate it- this will cause it to become permanent. Moreover, try not to pop or touch your pimples because those will 95% leave a very dark and stubborn acne spot behind. If products don’t seem to help, you can try mild, at-home remedy treatments. If those don’t help, off to the dermatologist you go!
