You will find skincare products that can treat all sorts of issues. One of the most popular issues is acne. Acne itself is bad enough! Trying to hide those annoying red spots every week is difficult so getting acne scars afterwards is just cruel and unusual punishment on top of everything else you need to deal with. The problem with acne scars is that it can mean a wide range of problems. Acne scars can be anything from discoloration to uneven skin texture. You need skincare products that will take care of all these issues. So here are 10 skincare products to help you end the tyranny of acne and their descendants, acne scars.
1. Aveeno Clear Skin Moisturizer
Salicylic acid is a common ingredient in most acne prevention and treatment products. So if you have acne prone skin, you might already be using this ingredient in your daily skincare routine. What you may not know is that salicylic acid is also great for acne scars. If you have a product with salicylic acid, you should stick to it. But if you have not gotten your hands on some salicylic acid products, you should go out and buy this moisturizer from an Aveeno skincare line that is designed specifically for acne prone skin.
2. Murad Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel
After finally getting rid of those bright red zits, those brown spots that pop up afterwards are supposed to fade over time and your skin will clear up. But sometimes, they are very stubborn about sticking around or you do not have the time to wait for it to disappear on its own. Break out this Murad Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel to spot treat those stubborn acne scars and clear up your skin. The AHA, a prominent ingredient in this gel, will help exfoliate your skin and remove those minor discolorations.
3. Banisher 2.0
If your problem with acne scars is not just simple brown spots, you probably have indentations and uneven skin texture leftover from particularly annoying zits. Exfoliation and lightening treatments are not going to make the cut. You need something that will really penetrate your skin and boost collagen to help even your skin back out. Try the new Banisher 2.0. Banish has made improvement upon the original Banisher tool by focusing on spot treatment. The new design refines the needles to create smaller and more narrow piercings that allow products to soak in and cause less stress to the skin.
4. Philosophy Help Me
Retinol is a stellar ingredient in many anti-aging products because it helps to reduce wrinkles and boost skin elasticity and firmness. But retinol is also great to treat acne scars. Retinol, which is a key ingredient in the Philosophy Help Me product, will not only keep you looking young longer but also even out skin texture and reduce the appearance of brown spots. Just be careful and keep in mind that retinol will make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Use the treatment at night and wear sun protection during the daytime to avoid reversing the improvements the product has done and doing more damage to your skin.
