Use soy for acne scarsWhen you're trying to diminish the red mark left behind from a recent breakout, look for a product that contains soy, like Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30, $16.99. "The proteins in soy help diminish redness and blotchy coloring," says Warren Wallo, a research scientist with Johnson & Johnson. Plus, sun exposure can turn a temporary red mark into a permanent scar (because the "new" skin is more susceptible to hyperpigmentation). So, the SPF is an added bonus that'll help prevent that from happening.
