Finally getting your acne under control to the point where you don’t have breakouts any more can be life-changing, but the sad fact is that for many people, even after the spots have gone, you can be left with scarring and lesions. There are things you can do to improve the appearance of acne scarring and we’ve got a whole bunch of products which can help.
Acne scarring can often change the texture of your skin, leaving you with skin which lacks smoothness. This gel mask from Elemis uses Subtilisine, a skin compatible, bioactive micro-encapsulated enzyme that catalyses the breakdown of proteins into polypeptides to dissolve dead skin cells. It also contains protease, a proteolitic enzyme with keratolitic agents to improve cell renewal. It actively resurfaces your skin and leaves scarred areas noticeably smoother.
This cream contains a powerful combination of three separate acids (glycolic acid, salicylic acid and azelaic acid) which dramatically improve the appearance of acne scarring, as well as pigmentation, rosacea and fine lines and wrinkles. Because it’s such a strong formula, drying may occur, so we recommend using it alongside a rich moisturiser to maintain balance.
Although scarring is what’s left after the acne has gone, often skin which is damaged by acne can still suffer with inflammation and redness, and is often easily irritated. This gentle mask from Elemis contains lavender, which soothes the skin and reduces irritation, calms redness and rebalances the complexion, giving your skin a more even tone.
This product from the Jan Marini Bioglycolic range is a lotion version of the Bioclear cream, which is light and less oily, making it ideal for normal to oily skin. It contains the same combination of glycolic acid, salicylic acid and azelaic acid which will totally resurfance the skin without unbalancing oily skin and leaving you with excess sebum.
This cream from Elemis works in a number of ways; as well as providing the skin with an intense dose of moisture, rebalances inflamed or hormonal skin conditions and provides soothing relief with protection. It’s also a great base for make-up, as it acts like a primer, giving skin an velvety finish.
