How to get rid of acne marks

Here is the scoop on how to get rid of acne marks. But first, in order to treat acne marks, it is helpful to learn how to distinguish between acne marks and scars.

Difference between acne marks and acne scars?

According to dermatologist and 2018 Acne Awards judge Dr. Joshua Zeichner, many people do not realize is that a dark or pink mark on the skin is not actually an acne scar. Inflammation in the skin often leaves behind a stain as part of the natural healing process. The inflammation revs up pigment production, creating the mark that fades on its own over several weeks to months. They are smooth to the touch (not raised or indented), and signify that there is no permanent collagen damage to the skin.

On the other hand, acne scars are formed when there is damage to the skin, which leads to abnormal collagen production, and usually appear raised or bumpy. “There are two types of acne scars: depressed and raised. Depressed scars may look like pits or craters, and raised scars may be firm and tender,” explains Dr. Zeichner, who notes that unfortunately, these are permanent.

My Facial Routine

For the past 28 days, I won’t say I have been judiciously using House of Coco Products to get rid of acne marks, but for the most part I have been consistent.

Ever since I got the scoop of having skin regime, I now know how important it is to have a regime. Most days, I,m always bare-face.

My morning routine is pretty simple: I use the deep cleaning anti-acne facial wash and my facial brush to wash my face. Then, I use the cleansing toner to wipe off dirt and excess oil (some toner helps to balance the pH level ) . I have a feeling this toner those same because of the refreshing feeling I get after I use it. Then, I moisturize using the dermal repair face cream and my sunscreen.

For my night routine: I repeat all I did in the morning. This time I use the dermal repair face cream for night on targeted acne marks.

When I have to do makeup: I repeat my morning facial routine, I allow my skin to absorb the product before I apply my makeup. To take off makeup, I use coconut oil as makeup remover.

On most weekends, I wash my face using the the facial wash from House of Coco skincare. Then, I steam my face or exfoliate and mask before I use the dermal repair face cream for day or night depending on the time.

Before and After
