Acne scars are the worst. Here’s what to do.
Know the problem. Are the marks on your face acne scarring?
Redness and discoloured marks right after acne heals are not technically scarring, but could be post-inflammatory, hyperpigmentation and/or post-inflammatory erythema. Because they’re not scars, they eventually go away.
On the other hand, there’s scarring. Sometimes, the damage can be so bad your skin loses collagen and elastin, its main support structure. Other times, your skin produces too much collagen, resulting in raised scars. But whatever the type of scars, you don’t have to live with it forever.
Only treat skin that has healed, not openly erupted. Treatment products’ moisturising qualities may not do so well on open wounds.
There are lots of clinical solutions including lasers, fillers, and micro needling. However, these are often costly and come with their own set of potential risks. If you’re keen on trying interventional treatment, do plenty of homework.
A solution you can start right at home is Hiruscar Post-Acne, a clinically-tested gel designed for post-acne skin. It improves how scars look, keeps skin healthy and targets post-inflammatory redness and dark spots.
Think of it as a superhero acne scar-busting dream team of active ingredients: There’s MPS (mucopolysaccharide polysulphate), which promotes the natural wound healing. Niacinamide encourages the elasticity of scar tissue and suppresses inflammation. Allium cepa minimises the size of scars and helps them look smoother, while allantoin hydrates skin, keeping it soft.
Try Hiruscar Post-Acne twice-a-day for better, clearer skin. Another bonus– it’s not greasy at all, so you can layer skincare and makeup on as soon as you’re done.
Bye, scars, bye!
