What causes acne scars? To everyone who picks their pimples: Stop doing it! We’re not here to judge, we’ve all been there! Bacteria and inflammation develop when impurities, skin damage, and excess sebum production are removed.

This causes pigment-producing cells to become overactive, leaving dark spots and acne scars. What types of acne scars are there? There are different types of acne scars. Once you know what type of acne scarring you are

experiencing, you can choose the best products to treat your skin.

Hyperpigmentation is the most common type of scar, and fortunately, it is not permanent. It tends to occur more commonly in darker skin tones. In fair skin tones, hyperpigmentation often leaves pink or red patches on the

surface, both of which resolve on their own after a few weeks.

Jagged scars, also called atrophic scars, are located beneath the surrounding skin and occur when not enough collagen is produced during wound healing. Atrophic scars can be divided into three specific types: ice pick, boxcar,

and billowing scars.

Hypertrophic scars, also called keloids, are raised scars above the skin, usually on the chest and back. The Best Products for Treating Acne Scars. Now what have you been waiting for! It’s time to find out which ingredients are

Pro Tip: Before starting acne scar treatment, make sure all active breakouts are gone and always avoid removing these offending blemishes.

1.Nicotinamide: Niacinamide (or vitamin B3) is a water-soluble vitamin suitable for all skin types and all ages. It helps reduce breakouts, minimize pores, and relieve hyperpigmentation and redness.

Plus, it's a great addition to your skin care routine, helping to balance oily skin and improve the skin barrier. These benefits make niacinamide the perfect acne scar treatment!

Instructions for use: Shake well before using niacinamide products. Apply a few drops to clean, dry skin. For best results, apply morning and evening. 2. Retinol: Retinol is one of the best products for treating acne scars and

is a great addition to your skin care routine.

Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, is great for reducing discoloration and helping to fade scars by increasing collagen and elastin production.

However, it can make the skin extremely sensitive to sunlight, which is why you need to use a sun protection factor (SPF) to protect your skin. No reason! Retinol is an effective acne scar treatment for atrophic scars.

How to use: To complement your evening skincare routine, apply a few drops of Retinol Serum to cleansed and toned skin. Gently massage into skin before completing the final steps of your evening routine.

3. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a whitening agent and antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals that damage cells over time.

As an acne scar treatment, it's great for building collagen and helping to remodel the skin to protect, heal and produce new skin cells for radiant, even-toned skin.

Vitamin C is great for all acne scars and is an essential supplement, whether changing your diet or adding a new ingredient to your skin care routine.

How to use: Vitamin C is a super simple supplement that can be used once or twice daily. Due to its protective properties, we recommend applying a few drops to your face every morning to protect your skin throughout the day.

4. AHA

Alpha-hydroxy acids (or AHAs as you and I call them) are derived from sugar cane and are commonly found in most anti-acne products.

AHAs help remove dead skin cells and prevent clogged pores, thereby reducing the appearance of scars. The acid exfoliates the outer layer of skin, reducing skin discoloration and eliminating roughness.

AHAs are very effective and suitable for all types of acne scars.

How to use: Apply to clean face, avoid using on damp skin. Apply evenly to face and neck and leave on for up to 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

5. Salicylic acid

Salicylic acid is a familiar ingredient to many acne sufferers.

It helps clean pores, reduce swelling and redness, and exfoliate the skin, making it one of the best treatments for all types of acne scars.

While it's easy to incorporate into your daily routine, we recommend using it sparingly if you have sensitive skin as it can cause dryness and irritation.

How to use: Apply a thin layer to cleansed face. This product can be used every day and blends seamlessly under foundation to transform your skin throughout the day.

Always use sun protection

To protect your skin, it's important to wear sunscreen. Sun exposure can exacerbate pigmentation, so applying SPF daily is one of the fastest ways to get rid of acne scars.

It's especially important to consider SPF when using chemical peels and acid treatments to reduce acne scars. These treatments can reveal a new surface layer of skin, which means the skin is more sensitive to sun damage.
