Always wear sunscreen
Since scar tissue is more prone to hyperpigmentation from the sun, wearing sunscreen can help shade your new scar or mark and keep it from darkening. This will help keep your skin protected everyday and allow scars to heal. We recommend Suntegrity for all natural sun protection.
Leave your skin alone!
This isn’t news to anyone, but we feel it bears repeating: stop picking at your pimples! Seriously, picking at your blemishes leads to secondary infection or more inflammation, both of which lead to an increased risk of scarring.
And of course, treat skin with extra TLC
The best thing you can do to keep scarring at bay is to effectively treat any existing acne. A good skincare regimen is a must when combatting acne and preventing any future scarring.
