Here, through this blog, she is highlighting some tips which can help in preventing Acne Scars.
1. Avoid sun exposure
Dr. Monica highly recommends avoiding excess sun exposure especially when someone is dealing with acne scars and marks. Application of a broad-spectrum sunscreen is mandatory whether indoors or outdoors.
2. Never pop pimples
Popping pimples or squeezing them can be an easy solution to do away with pus-filled pimples. But, dermatologists suggest that this habit is the worst mistake one can make. Pimple popping injures the skin, damaging it deeply. It also forces debris deeper in the dermis layer which can spread infection and worsen inflammation. This can also leave permanent scars and marks on the skin. So one is suggested to avoid pimple-popping altogether.
3. Opt for skin-friendly products
Many skin problems can be prevented if you choose the right products. Gel-based light skin creams that are non-comedogenic shall be used by people with oily skin. Rubbing a towel on the skin is also a wrong practice. One is advised to avoid over-application of acne scar medication to get faster results as that can further harm the skin.
4. Don’t exfoliate
Avoid exfoliation if one is having active breakouts. Acne scars usually pop up once the collagen production has stopped. So, collagen production is to be stimulated to minimize acne scars. Medical treatments can help in boosting collagen production.
5. Home remedies are not for everyone
Home remedies can be super effective for one and at the same time can show no relevant result to other individuals. Natural ingredients can many times trigger inflammation on the skin worsening the condition. It is very important to work on the root cause of the skin problem. Do visit a dermatologist before trying out any home remedies or self-medication as they are well- qualified and trained to diagnose skin problems and provide treatments accordingly.
