How to conceal and treat acne scars?

Acne can happen to anyone and everyone

Acne can happen to even the best of us, not just young adults. Acne happens when hair follicles are clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It mainly affects areas of the skin with a high number of oil glands, which are areas such as the face, forehead, upper back, chest and shoulders. All skin types can suffer from acne, including dry and dehydrated skin. Acne is characterised by pimples, oily skin, blackheads or whiteheads, and potential scarring. These dermatological reactions will often affect one’s looks and confidence level.

Clogged hair follicles is one of the leading causes of acne. Some of the other factors that contribute to acne are a change in hormones, your diet, medications and stress. Adopting a healthy lifestyle, for starters, is a walk in the right direction. However, it is also important to deal with acne scars that were left behind.

Getting rid of acne scars

Acne might be a temporary problem, but acne scars if not treated well, can become a permanent problem. Acne scars are actually not true scars, they are post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), which is a temporary skin discolouration that will slowly fade away with proper care.

Firstly, treat your skin to some tender loving care

Acne scars or acne spots are often the most unsightly consequence of acne-prone skin. Before you try and conceal a spot, treat your skin to some tender loving care. A flawless complexion starts with cleansing your face morning and night with the Gentle Foaming Cleanser. Next, apply the Pore Control Serum containing Grapevine Flower Cell extract as it helps fight against enlarged and elongated pores. Adopt the habit of applying the SOS Pure Mask once or twice a week. Its Organic Alpine Willow Herb extract purify skin in 10 minutes. When your face is clean, it is less prone to permanent acne scars. The next step is to conceal acne scars with make-up.

Next, conceal acne scars with make-up

Here’s how to hide acne scars with make-up. Make-up is ideal for concealing spots on your face. Begin with the Everlasting Cushion Foundation, which camouflages blemishes without suffocating your skin. For absolutely flawless correction and make-up to hide acne, try the Instant Light Brush-On Perfector. The brush helps you single out the smallest imperfection for a clear, glowing complexion.
