Preventing and Removing Acne Scars...

Everyday I hear from clients and parents alike who want to know how to prevent acne scars or remove them. Acne scarring is the number one concern of so many and the good news is you can take action to prevent and minimize the chances of them occurring.

I think it is important to understand the how and why acne scars occur in the first place. I call the little pock marks and red scars the "Badge of Courage" for acne sufferers.

The tiny scars form as a result of collagen and fatty tissue being displaced by an enlarged and infected pore. This is often seen with cystic acne, but can also occur with tiny pimples in people whose skin easily discolors and scars during the healing process.

In fact, that is just what the scar is – a healing of the rupture in the skin. Your body rushes to protect you from infection by quickly replacing the lost tissue to prevent infection and further damage.

On the head, the skin is hyper-designed to do this in an extremely rapid fashion to protect the sensing part of the body and the brain. In other words, get a cut on the head or face, and your body hyper-heals it.

Now these scars would not be such an issue, but on the face the indentations cause a displacement of light as it crosses the contours of the skin.

This makes the indentations of the acne scar a "shadow" much like the craters you see on a full moon. Hence the nasty nick name used to describe acne sufferers as "crater face" by unfeeling and rude individuals.

The first line of prevention is how you care for the skin during breakouts. Here are 4 simple rules to follow that will absolutely reduce the risk of scarring.

1. You Have Heard It Before But, Do NOT Pick/Squeeze Acne Bumps or Pimples.

Here are a couple of reasons why. First, an inflamed and infected pore (pimple) is full of bacteria.

Squeezing it can rupture the pore spreading the bacteria further under the skin causing more breakouts. Second the rupturing can cause a pit or scar to form as the facial tissue is displaced. So no picking!

2. There Are Special Tools Available At Most Drug Stores To Help Open A Blocked Pore With Minimal Pressure.

You should follow my method in Acne Free in 3 Days for steaming open pores and keeping them clear. This is a daily step of applying a very warm cloth to the affected area for 20 minutes.

If your not familiar with the book, click the button for it on the right hand side of the page to access a free report and learn more.

3. Make Sure You Have A Regular Exfoliation Routine.

Even if you are young, regular exfoliation of the facial skin is a must as it keeps the pores open, infectious bacteria at bay, and the skin in a heightened state of renewal. I talk about exfoliation with the use of special AHA products and Peels throughout this blog.

4. Take Vitamin C and Drink Plenty Of Water.

Take at least 1000 mg of vitamin C daily (unless you are sensitive to it) and drink the recommended 8-10 glasses of water each day. This helps the body to repair skin damage, especially at night when at rest.

Simple enough? I know it is easier said than done, but like I said earlier, prevention is the key.

Tomorrow I will share what you can do about any scarring that you do have. I always like to give everyone more access to information that you can use today so visit the next link below to get step-by-step information on how to keep your skin healthy, clear, and youthful looking!

Hi Chris,

it's great to find you and your book, the method that you suggested indeed very helpful. However, i'm writing this more to my concern over Ginale products for scarring. As you suggested that this line of products are natural and very good for reducing scars, i tried them and i am really satisfied with the results for the first few days. however, after using it like for a week or so, i was starting to get breakouts, which was unbelievable. At that time i did not think it was Ginale as the cause, but then i decided to stop to use it for a while to again back to your method to cope with the breakouts. after my face quite clean, i started again with the Ginale, and again it caused me heavy breakouts :(, that was the point when i conclusively think that the product causing my breakouts.

For the matter of reducing the scar and repairing the skin texture, i adore this product, but why it causes me breakout? i want to know what i have done wrong or why it is not suitable for me? And could you assist me on how to proceed on this matter, should i stop using it or do you have any other suggestion?

Please, i hope you could help me out. Many thanks Chris once again and always stay inspiring :)


p.s : i've tried to reach you by email so this comment will not give prejudice to any of Ginale potential customer, but i could not find your "right " email address :(
