Acne marks are a lasting reminder of something we’d all prefer to forget. Now, on top of breakouts, you need to deal with annoying marks on your face.
Acne marks are hyperpigmentation of the skin that can appear red or brown. This happens when a pimple is popped or opened and then heals. Sometimes the new skin doesn’t match the old skin. Or blood vessels break creating the varying colors in marks. Yet another reason not to pop pimples!
Fortunately, acne marks are pretty easy to treat. Many of them will go away on their own in about three to six months, but using over-the-counter products can help speed the process. First, you want to make sure the hyperpigmentation doesn’t get worse. To do that, use a sunscreen daily.
Then, use a product like Proactiv+® Advanced Dark Spot Correcting Serum, which helps fade and reduce unwanted dark spots. The maximum-strength skin lightening medicine – the most effective you can buy without a prescription – will lighten post-acne marks while calming and soothing the skin with sea buckhorn. It’s non-comedogenic. So it won’t clog pores. And it’s also ideal for marks like freckles, age and liver spots.
Goodbye, acne marks. Hello, clear skin!
