Lasting for years acne can cause both physical and psychological scarring. You start to hate your face and run away from mirrors. Acne scars can even cause depression and low self esteem. People may tell you that you just have to accept it but they dont understand. You cant accept it and you dont have to.
There are scientifically proven remedies for acne scars and if you find the right information you will at least dramatically improve pimple scars And faster than you think.
4 What Causes Acne Scars
Scarring usually results from severe inflammatory nodulocystic acne but may also result from more superficial inflamed lesions or from self-manipulation.
There are two general types of acne scars hypertrophic (keloid) scars and atrophic (icepick rolling and boxcar) scars. The best way to prevent scars from pimples is of course to treat acne early enough to minimize the inflammation time. But there are effective ways to diminish scars even if you werent able to prevent them.
5 Green Tea
While the use of green tea specifically for acne scars is being researched by the scientific community the active compounds in green tea may help prevent acne lesions that result in scars and its antioxidant properties may help assist in skin cell repair according to a study published by the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
Green tea may be internally consumed and topically applied to help with acne and acne scars. The University of Maryland Medical Center suggests consuming two to three cups of freshly brewed green tea per day or consuming 100 to 750 mg of Green Tea Extract tablets per day.
You can also apply it directly to your skin Boil 8 oz of water add 3 tsp of fresh green tea leaves to the water allow it to steep for 5 minutes and leave it until it cools down. Dip a clean wash cloth in the tea and gently apply it to the acne scars where ever they are.(Source is here)
7 Alpha hydroxy acids
These natural acids found in foods such as citrus fruits help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores when applied topically. Alpha hydroxy acids may also improve the appearance of acne scars. They can also cause redness mild stinging and skin irritation so use it carefully and see how your skin reacts. Vitamin C serums are also quite good at lightening scars. I found many raving reviews about MyChelle The Perfect C Serum .
8 Virgin Coconut Oil
Though I didnt find much research about the benefits of Coconut Oil for skin care I couldnt find a single user that DIDNT see significant improvement in their scars after a few weeks of use. All reviews state that this is a cheap effective and basically a miraculous product. The secret is to apply a small amount of it every day and to use a virgincold-pressed unrefined organic coconut oil . Dont settle for anything else.
9 Red Light Therapy
More and more studies in the last years show that deep penetrating red light therapy is a natural and safe method to promote skin healing. Research has found that red light stimulates the dermal layers of your skin to produce more collagen (and faster). As collagen is formed the pockmarks often left by severe cases of acne even out which will bring a smoother appearance and reduce the signs of acne scarring.
There are easy to use FDA approved red light therapy devices (not as expensive as you might think) you can read reviews about the best ones Right Here.
