Skin Care Questions and Answers About acne_scarring
I have a question regarding acne scarring. I am a 38 yr old female. When I was young I had an acne problem. I still get an ocassional outbreak but for the most part my face is pimple free. I was taking an antibiotic for sometime but stopped taking it when I got pregnant. As I am getting older and now with a 4 month old I feel as if my scarring is more noticeable. I was having dermabrasion done monthly for about 2 yrs however it did not appear to make much of a difference. Is there anything I can do to lessen the appearance of acne scarring?...Read Response
If you experience some discoloration, I would first recommend using a daily SPF for your skin such as the Aloe Moisturizer (SPF-15). Using gently AHA’s such as fruit extracts and glycolic acid will help to gently even out your skin tone. Hyper-pigmention and discoloration may take a long time to even out. I would strongly recommend using a daily SPF such as the Oil Free Moisturizer (SPF-17) or higher to hydrate and protect your skin for further discoloration. Then I would consider using the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 2-3 times a week at night only to help promote gentle exfoliation as it evens out skin tone. Do not over use this product as it may over dry the skin, otherwise this deep cleansing treatment will be very effective for lessening the appearance of old acne scars. Lastly, you could use the Whitening Mask 2-3 times a week for 10 minutes to help brighten the skin and even out overall skin tone as it discourages further discoloration.
