ASK THE EXPERT: HOW DO I FADE ACNE SCARS?

| 2 Comments


Todays post was inspired by a recent question a reader sent me asking how to fade discoloration and scars on the face, post acne. This is a topic that is fresh on my mind lately as I am currently rehabbing many scars and pigmentations from my past acne breakouts.

Many people suffer from discoloration, not just acne prone women like me. Sun spots are also a big issue I get asked about, and this topic completely applies to you as well.

So to answer your question: The best cure for acne scars is a retinol based night cream.

I talked about the importance of Retinols on this blog before, and I don't plan to stop any time soon. Seeing as retinols are the single most important product to have in your skincare regimen, when it comes to anti-aging.

They help to turn skin cells over and generate new healthy collagen in the skin. A good retinol will be pricey, but they are worth the expense hands down!

Right now I am using and loving the Trifecting Night Cream by Lumixyl. It is aggressive enough to get you good results, without being to drying or harsh at the same time. I've seen rapid lightening of some of my darkest acne scars, and I also think this product is helping to reduce my cystic acne pain. It also resurfaces the skin so the pores are tighter and smaller in size overall.

Wearing your retinol at night is crucial, as your skin will be able to absorb the product uninhibited by the sun and environmental factors, or other products and makeup. Wearing the night cream for 8+ hours will give the fastest results. 

I recommend wearing a thing layer all over the face, then adding additional spot treatment on the problem areas. And remember that retinol products like Lumixyl will slightly thin out the skin and can cause sensitivity, so be sure you are wearing sunscreen everyday, which will also prevent future sunspots or scars. 

I hope that helps answer your question, and that you'll add a night time retinol to your routine, xo
P.S. The Lumixyl Cream is currently 25% Off with this link, enjoy!
