Hey FaceTory Fam!
Welcome back to another blog! Acne-related issues are always a hot topic here. Today is all about scarring, specifically indented scarring. So, let's get to it!
For the quick gist, check out the video below!
As mentioned in the video, indented scars are much harder to get rid of at home, but here are some tips that help the most!
AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid. Products that focus on this ingredient work as a chemical exfoliating product. That means, it can help your skin in the following ways:
- removing dead skin cells
- minimizing texture
If you haven't used an AHA product before, I recommend starting at least 1-2x a week for 1 year. Including a chemical exfoliating product into your routine can help your skin tremendously! BUT you want to make sure you're using it carefully because too much of it may harm your skin barrier. Less is more (:
Here are some common AHAs that you may have heard of:
Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid, and Lactic Acid
I recommend checking your product's ingredient list and also look for products that focus on those!
Seek a professional
Sometimes there's only so much a product can do to help your skin. If you're looking into seriously taking care of indented scars, then meeting with a professional dermatologist or esthetician won't hurt! Here are common services that will help improve the appearance of indented scars!
- chemical peels
- laser treatments
I hope these tips help you! Remember scars take time to heal and fade, so don't forget to be patient with yourself and your skin. You're always glowing, FaceTory Fam <3
