5 Ways to Prevent Acne Scars

prevent acne scars

It’s disturbing enough to have acne. It hurts when forming deep within your skin. Then it forms a red bump on your face. It annoys you and you have no idea how long it will take to heal. As if that was not enough of a problem, it leaves a scar behind after it has gone. Depending on the severity of the acne either you will be left with a red or brown mark, in  which case you should consider yourself lucky. Or you will be left with a pitted scar, which will be much harder to get rid of. So how do you prevent acne scars from forming in the first place?

The first thing we need to make sure is that the acne heals fast. The faster they heal the less of a scar they will leave. Here are 5 tips which when followed will prevent acne scars from forming after the acne heals.

  1. No Touching

No touching the acne to see how big they are or what state they are in. You are not gaining anything by doing this. On the contrary, you are irritating it, in which case it will stay on your face for much longer than needed. Do you really want this? Really need to see? Walk to a mirror and check it out. Do yourself a favour and keep your hands off your face.

2. No Popping

Popping acne only spreads the infection deep within your skin. This means you are spreading the infected bacteria around so that they can cause more acne. In addition, you will be left with a pitted scar. Not a red or brown mark, which is relatively easier to remove.

3. Exposure to the Sun

Whether or not you have acne you need to wear sun protection when you are exposed to the sun. The early morning or late evening sunshine is not too bad, but if you are being exposed to the sun between 10 AM and 4 PM you need to have proper sun protection. If you have acne on your face please wear a good sunscreen with an SPF of 30 of higher when going out into the sun.

4. Use Honey as a Spot Treatment

Honey is an antibacterial which not only helps heal the acne faster but prevents scarring as well. Use raw, organic honey as a spot treatment on any red angry acne to calm them down and make them go away quietly without a trace.

5. Drink Water

Finally, drink a lot of water to help keep your skin hydrated and provide an ideal healing environment. Dry, dehydrated skin not only looks dull but makes it harder for the acne to heal well.

Even if you follow just the first 2 tips your acne scars will be much lighter and after the acne heals and they will go away on their own after a while.

  1. I like the recommendation to drink a lot of water. It makes sense that this would be a good way to help your body fight acne and scarring naturally. It’s something I’ll have to remember because acne is something I’ve always struggled with so it’s about time I do something about it.

  2. Microdermabrasion therapies are available in many day spas,
    and healthcare offices. What it does is get rid of the
    leading layer of skin from your face or body, getting rid of dead flaky
    skin, and even skin which has been damaged by the sun.
