Nobody likes pimples. They arrive without warning (right before you have a big party to go to), and leave after ages of fussing over them. And worse, they leave marks!
The best way to keep your skin free of pimple marks is to prevent breakouts. But that is easier said than done! So, here’s what you can do to deal with pimple marks.
Use a Mark Treatment
People often think that all pimple marks are the same and will go away on their own. But that’s not entirely true. If you find that you have dark marks left on your skin from a pimple, you can treat it with the CLEAN & CLEAR® Acne Mark Treatment. This product also contains ingredients that help diminish the look of post acne marks.
Stay Away From the Sun
A great way to ensure pimple marks vanish faster is to avoid the sun as much as you can. Exposing pimple marks to sunlight will cause them to darken even more, and slow down the healing process. And when you do step out, don’t forget the sunscreen!
Don’t Pop Pimples
Keep your hands off the face! Popping pimples or squeezing them is never a good idea. Poking pimples will irritate your skin and spread germs, which means more pimples, and more marks.
Don’t Irritate Your Skin
Be as gentle as you can! This will not only make your pimple marks, fade away but it will also reduce their chances of returning. Products that are mild for your skin can help lighten your pimple marks and blemishes. And remember, only use products that suit your skin type.
When the damage caused by pimples is too severe, your skin may respond with too much or too little new skin. This is how stubborn scars appear. If you are left with scars that look like little depressions or raised areas, they won’t go away unless they are treated by a dermatologist.
