Fighting against acne and the scars that come along with this naturally occurring phenomenon within our bodies can sometimes feel like a battle.

One that we will never have a white flag waving in the wind with a signal of surrender. Although acne scars aren’t as tricky or uncomfortable as the acne that caused them, their overall appearance can be pretty bothersome when looking at your reflection in a mirror.

Some individuals purchase thousands of different makeup products to try and diminish the appearance of these scars, while others grin and bear their newfound natural appearance. Fortunately, it’s not entirely impossible to reduce the overall appearance of acne scars.

The answer lies within the ingredients of the products you utilize in your daily skincare regimen! Let’s look at the best skincare ingredients known to fade acne scars.

1. Vitamin C

  • Is not only beneficial for boosting your immune system when you begin to feel sick!

  • This ingredient is incredibly helpful in fading acne scars.

  • Vitamin C has the unique ability to promote collagen synthesis while also brightening your skin tone – making for a great acne scar-diminishing combination! These are some of the best Vitamin C serums on the market today:

2. Glycolic Acid

  • Reduces the excess buildup of skin cells associated with many common skin problems such as acne, dry skin, severe dry skin, and wrinkles.

  • However, did you know this beneficial ingredient can stimulate the development of new and brighter-looking skin by eliminating dead skin cells? It can also decrease the overall appearance of pores, ultimately smoothing out the uneven scar tissue that may be left behind from previous breakouts.

3. Kojic Acid

  • Is a skin-lightening agent that acts as an antioxidant.

  • Kojic Acid is a tyrosinase inhibitor.

  • Combined with allantoin and other proper ingredients in sunscreen formulations, this combination can inhibit UV-caused erythema and accelerate wound healing.

4. Azelaic Acid

  • Acne scarring can be made worse by extreme darkening caused by melanin, which sits within our skin cells. This skin hyperpigmentation can be challenged with azelaic acid.

  • A natural element in certain grains encourages extreme cell turnover, which is a complete game changer when it comes to lessening the appearance of facial acne scars.

5 . Licorice Root

  • Is considered an anti-irritant.

As a depigmenting agent, licorice extract is described as more effective than kojic acid and seventy-five times more effective than ascorbic acid.

Dealing with acne can be a tiresome and frustrating experience, especially when your breakouts lead to acne scars. With the proper maintenance and the right skincare ingredients, acne scars can quickly become a triumphant battle that you can label as won.

Using skincare with the ingredients listed above, acne scars can be significantly diminished!

This is why is so important to read labels before you purchase a product with your hard-earned money; At the end of the day, skincare is an investment.

I'm here to help you invest it wisely!
