How to prevent acne scars

For anyone with acne scars, the battle for smoother, clearer skin may seem like an endless fight, but it is one that you can definitely win - and we're here to tell you how to beat your acne scars with a two-pronged approach!

The first half of your battle plan, naturally, is to ensure that you have an effective acne scar reduction treatment. This means that you need to:

1
Find a treatment that really works

Avoid home remedies and unproven natural ingredients - you need to ensure that your chosen treatment is clinically proven to be effective at reducing acne scars.

2
Make sure it does not worsen your skin

Some treatments, such as microneedling rollers, may not only be effective for treating acne scars but also be effective in causing acne outbreaks - avoid those.

3
Be consistent in your treatment

The key to any effective scar reduction treatment is consistency. You should pick an acne scar treatment that you won't have trouble keeping to the treatment schedule.

Thankfully, you won't need to spend too much time looking for such a treatment - Dermatix Acne Scar meets all of these requirements!

Containing proven ingredients such as CPX Silicone gel technology, ActivGCS (snail slime extract), Vitamin B3 and Zinc Gluconate, Dermatix Acne Scar has been tested and shown to visibly reduce acne scars in as little as four weeks.1

The ingredients are also non-irritating, making it suitable for the sensitive skin that most acne sufferers have. On top of that, Dermatix Acne Scar is easy to apply and dries quickly and invisibly, making it a breeze to keep up with consistent treatment.

Now that you've got your acne scar treatment ready, it's time to reveal the second part of the plan - treating your acne. Less acne naturally means less acne scars, right? Of course. You've probably already settled on an acne treatment that works for you, but there's actually more that you can do - here's a list of tips to help you better treat your acne and reduce acne breakouts!

Use gentle cleansers2

Use warm water and a mild facial cleanser, as harsher soaps can irritate inflamed skin.

Always use a fresh washcloth2

Whether you're using it to wash your face or to pat dry after cleansing, never use a washcloth more than once before washing it, as dirty towels can spread bacteria.

Get a noncomedogenic moisturiser2

Acne treatments frequently dry your skin, making moisturiser even more important. Be sure to pick one that has noncomedogenic on its label, as those are formulated to not cause acne.

Avoid makeup where possible2

Foundation, powder and blush can worsen your acne situation - if you have to use makeup, be sure to wash it off at the end of the day.

Avoid oils, pomades and gel for your hair2

These products can clog up pores if they get on your face. If you have long hair, keep it pulled away from your face.

Leave your pimples and acne alone3

Picking or popping them will only lead to inflammation and a higher chance of scarring, so resist that urge with all your might!.

Change your sheets

Dirt and your body's natural oils can get on your sheets, which will rub off on your skin as you sleep.

Avoid the sun

Ultraviolet rays from the sun can damage your skin and worsen the appearance of acne and acne scars. Use an SPF moisturiser and wear sunblock whenever possible.

Don't pick your scabs

Scabs are there to protect your wound as it heals. Picking scabs off will only prolong the recovery process and increase the chances of scarring.

With reduced acne and less scarring from the acne that do appear, you'll be well on your way to smoother, cleaner looking skin!
