Natural Acne Scar Treatment uses natural ingredients which are mostly commonly available from your local urban store. Some of the more specialised ingredients may have to be purchased on-line.
For the most part, and keeping in line with our theme, these natural make-up ingredients offer a safe yet effective way of make-up, cosmetic and blemish treatments.
These natural ingredients are a combination of gentle cleansers, exfoliants and topical disinfectants that research has proven to be effective for treating acne.
Which plan works best for you?
Thus is entirely dependent on how your skin responds. Don't be discouraged by having to go through some trial and error before you find the plan that works best for you.
When acne has caused a permanent scar, it is normally too late to prevent it. However, acne scars that occur in the first 12 months can be cured naturally by the body.
First 12 Months of Acne Scars
The best way to prevent post-inflammatory changes caused by acne is to prevent acne lesions from occurring.
It is the lesion that causes the potential scarring. An acne lesion is the visible part (what the eye can see) of the inflammation.
After an acne lesion has healed, it can leave a red or pigmented (dark) mark on the skin. This is not yet a scar even though many people refer to it as a scar.
This redness or pigmented mark is an indication of the skin going through healing process.
This healing process can take 1 to 12 months. If no more acne lesions develop in that area, the skin heals normally.
By making your skin healthy again (see acne tips below), you will benefit from natural acne scar treatment without having to use synthetic chemicals.
These synthetic chemicals may well assist you with your acne problems, but may have other side effects that are damaging to your body and/or the environment.
After 12 Months
Any pigmented skin or skin defect that is still present after approximately 12 months is now considered a permanent scar or skin defect.
The first 12 months of your acne is key to preventing permanent acne scarring. This period is critical to maximise your chances of successful natural acne scar treatment.
