Clear Skin 101: Get Rid of Acne Scars
With the right acne scar treatments and expert tips, you can finally forget your breakout-ridden past
Fight them while they are freshIf you really couldn't help yourself from popping (bad girl!) and you do end up with an acne scar, you need to fight it when it is new. Do this by using a mild exfoliant, which will help get rid of the scarred skin cells. The ingredients you are looking for in an exfoliant are rice extract, salicylic acid, or lactic acid. Try Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Redness Soothing Gentle Scrub, $7.99.
Just make sure you don't go nuts with the exfoliating -- too much can irritate your skin and cause more zits, the things you are trying to avoid in the first place.
