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 -- so don't give up hope for 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.
