You may think that once you have got rid of all your acne, you’re going to have a beautiful flawless skin. Well, think again because the journey towards getting that porcelain doll like skin has not ended yet. Instead, your skin is going to leave you with hyper-pigmentation and scarring issues that may take even longer to deal with. So treat them fast! Below are some tips for fading the acne marks fast and effectively.
Exfoliating plays a huge role in fading the acne scars. Our skin shed dead skin cells naturally every 28-40 days on average through a process called desquamation or cell turnover. By using products with physical or chemical exfoliator, we are helping the natural process of cell turnover by removing the dead skin cells shed by our body to allow new skin cells to generate. That is why our skin appears brighter and softer after every exfoliation process. Overtime, acne scars and hyperpigmentation will fade.
2. Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is one of the most popular ingredients in the skincare industry due to its never ending list of benefits. Vitamin C can help to reduce inflammation and boost up collagen to plump up the skin and lessen the appearance of those deep pitted scars. It will also help to even out your skin tone and brighten up those marks and hyper-pigmentation. You’d want to use a serum because the concentration of vitamin C in serums are more potent comparing to the amount that you can get from using just a moisturizer with Vitamin C as one of the ingredients.
I cannot stress out more about how important sunblock is. If you want to fade the acne scars, you don’t want to take any risk of them darkening up again. Choose a sunblock with a high SPF to protect your skin from the damaging UV rays. Make sure to apply them even on rainy days, 30 minutes before you head out. Sunblock will also prevent your skin from premature aging, dryness and even skin cancer. So, make sure your skin is well protected, and don't forget the umbrella!
4. Derma roll
If you got the extra buck, try to get derma rolling treatments from a professional. This method is proven to be very effective in fading acne scars fast. Derma rolling is an action of puncturing your skin with a derma roller that is packed with tiny needles. This action will trick your body into saying that your skin is injured and therefore the body will send collagen to your skin surface in order to repair it. In result, acne scars will fade faster and your skin will look healthier. And don’t worry, it does not hurt.
