Acne scars are marks left behind after a blemish has gone away. These pesky marks often appear as dark spots on the skin, resulting in an uneven skin tone and texture.
How Can I Help Prevent an Acne Scar?
If you notice a blemish on your skin, do not mess with it! Messing with a blemish is more likely to cause it to leave a scar. Instead, use skincare that is formulated with ingredients to target blemishes and help even the look of skin tone to help avoid a blemish that may leave a scar. We recommend the following products to help with blemish-prone skin:
Clarity Skin-Clarifying Serum: Using a Skin-Clarifying Serum with ingredients like Salicylic Acid and Retinol help gently exfoliate skin for a smoother, clearer-looking complexion that can help clear up blemishes to help avoid potential acne scarring.
