How to Get Rid of Acne Scars for Good
With the right acne scar treatments and expert tips, you can finally forget your breakout-ridden past
Good for: Speeding up the fading process
Even if you have old acne scars from years ago, the fight isn't lost -- there are still acne scar treatments that can help you get clear skin. Dermatologists agree that exfoliating and brightening skin care products can help fade old red or brown spots.
Johnson recommends a lightly exfoliating ingredient like rice extract, a spot-fader like Vitamin C and a skin regenerator like vitamin A (found in over-the-counter retinol products) to help diminish acne scars. Board-certified dermatologist Ava Shamban, MD, recommends using all three together for best results.
We recommend: A retinol like Jouer Daily Repair Treatment Oil, $48, or Roc Multi Correxion Skin Renewing Serum, $28.99; a vitamin C serum like Boots No. 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Serum, $27.99; and a rice extract cleanser like Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser, $10.
