- Prevent and treat acne scar with natural ingredients that have clinically proven studies!
What Are Acne Scars?
They say skincare is a journey – well, acne is a longer one.
Many of us often skip the aftercare of acne on our skin. This puts all our effort from not popping pimples or scratching at healing acne scars to waste.
These scars are more of the pigmentation changes our skin goes through in the process of healing as New York-based dermatologist Blair Murphy-Rose mentions.
Here’s the scientific explanation:
Acne scars are fibrous tissues that develop after an injury or inflammation on the skin. These fibrous tissues contain abnormal and damaged collagen fibers, which result in the skin not looking at its healthy appearance.
Why Lasers and Microneedling Don’t Get Rid of Acne Scars Completely
In a study done in 2016 it is shown that there is a lack of clinically proven studies surrounding acne scar treatments. There is even lesser research on the long lasting effects of such treatments.
Laser treatments and micro needling can’t remove acne scars on its own. This is because these lasers do not treat all types of acne scars at every depth. Hence, they are not a permanent cure for treating your acne scars. The most one can expect is “greater improvement” as compared to if the acne scars were left untreated.
But this does not mean that laser treatments do not work. They are just not the permanent solution.
How Do I Decide The Best Acne Scar Treatment?
Prevention is key – always apply SPF as it is known that acne scars and dark spots from pigmentation worsen under direct UV light. Start regularly applying SPF, even if you are indoors! While this does not help to remove acne scars that you have currently, they help with future prevention of acne formation.
Skin Soothing & Hydrating Booster To Treat Acne Scar Naturally
A great addition to have as an acne scar treatment for pre-breakout and post breakout. The Skin Soothing & Hydrating Booster includes concentrated actives that target the P.acnes bacteria and stoop its growth. It promises to reduce skin redness within 30 minutes, soothe the skin and reduce skin damage caused by oxidative stress. The serum’s soft and easily mixable formulation blends well into the skin, giving it a softer and calmer feel the moment you apply it.

Pore Minimising Booster To Prevent Acne Scar Safely
This booster is so much more than your regular face serum for oily skin. Pore Minimising Booster offers 2 very unique plant extracts to help shrink the appearance of large pores and regulate sebum.
- Lemon Myrtle, a native flower to rainforests in Australia, helps moderate oil levels on the skin, for a refined and matte look throughout the day
