Have you been avoiding looking at your reflection because of your acne scars? It is indeed true that acne scars can be such a downer. However acne scars can be treated and you can easily get rid of the marks of your past.
We have to admit that acne scars are not so pleasant to look at. The truth is they are ugly to look at. Whether you think that the word ugly is too harsh to describe acne scars, in the real world almost everyone seem to think so.
Although acne scars are not pleasant to look at most people are drawn to looking at your acne scars. You certainly can relate to this if you have had your share of acne problems along with acne scars. When you are in a party or when you are being introduced to someone you probably have caught them staring at the acne scars on your face.

If you don’t want to get the title “Ms Acne Scars” then you better do something to get rid of your acne scars. Before we tackle how you can get rid of your acne scars let us first discuss how to prevent getting the scars in the first place. Let us actually go back one more step and talk about how to prevent acne or skin breakout.
Avoiding Skin Breakouts
- Keep your face clean by washing twice a day with a mild cleanser suited for your skin type.
- Avoid wearing make up as they clog the pores. If you do use make up make sure to wash it away as soon as possible or before going to bed.
- Get enough sleep and avoid or manage stress.
- Exercise regularly.
- Eat a healthy and balanced meat. Avoid fatty and greasy food as well as dairy products.
Preventing Acne Scars
There is only one thing for you to do to prevent deep scarring and that is to never prick, press, pick or squeeze the acne. Acne scars naturally go away after about 6 weeks after the acne has cleared up but if the scarring is deep because of your inability to control your urges to pick, squeeze or prick then the scarring would be deeper and you may need to get a product for acne scar treatment.
Getting Rid of Acne Scars
Apply Argan oil on your scars after washing your face in the morning and before going to bed. You can use this as your daily moisturiser. While the oil moisturises your skin, its high component of Vitamin E helps get rid of your acne scars.
