Acne Scar Skin Care for a Better Self Image

Acne Scar Skin Care for a Better Self Image!br>
If you are a teenager or adult who has acne or used to have acne, you are probably faced with the question of what to do about acne scars.
There is probably nothing that helps maintain a positive body image than a face with beautiful skin, and if acne has scarred your teenager’s face – or your own – you may want to try some products that specialize in acne scar skin care.
If you are under the care of a dermatologist for acne or other skin conditions, he or she will likely have some god advice for you to follow with regard to acne scare skin care or skin care in general.
There are a variety of products available both over the counter and as prescription that can help reduce or minimize acne scars.
Corticosteroid creams are sometimes used for acne scar skin care, as are other creams, gels, or lotions. Accutane is a powerful anti-acne medication, but it carries risks with it – mostly for the unborn – so women who use Accutane should not get pregnant.
In addition to products, a dermatologist may recommend other options for acne scar skin care. Lasers or intense pulsed light treatments are a high-tech option, and some doctors may also recommend gel sheetings or pressure treatments.
Cocoa butter has long been touted as an effective way to reduce the appearance of scars of all types, including acne scars.
Cocoa butter is inexpensive and can be bought in its “pure” form, or you can find products that contain cocoa butter as an active ingredient.
Women have been using it for years as an anti-stretch mark product, and there is no reason to believe that it is not just as effective as an acne scar skin care product as it is for stretch marks.
