If you've ever fought the "good fight" against a long bout of acne and won, then you may feel like the battle is over.
However, blemishes and patches can remain visible on your skin for months - even years. Ugh ! Yes I hear you... I've been there.
Another main skin condition that Black and Brown skin people face is acne scarring. You can either get medical treatment or leverage at-home tips that we're going to share with you below. But first...
WHAT EXACTLY ARE ACNE SCARS ?
Scarring are marks left behind by breakouts. Most types of scarring can be treated without a doctor. In some instances such as keloid scarring, which darker skin tones are prone to, a dermatologist or surgery may be advised.
Unlike hyperpigmentation (that was explained in our last blog post), acne scarring occurs when there is over-production of collagen (a skin protein) around a wounded area.
HOW TO GET RID OF ACNE SCARS ?
A. Microneedling or the use of small needles to create micro abrasions on the skin surface. This technique is useful for more severe scarring and requires the presence of a trained professional, which can get quite a bit pricey.
B. For less severe scarring, natural face masks such as Le Masque Coco with gentle exfoliant are perfect to renew the skin and smooth out acne in the comfort of your home - without breaking the bank ! Get yours today and say goodbye to scarring once and for all.
