Discover How to Fade Facial Acne Scars in a Week

Discover How to Fade Facial Acne Scars in a Week

I used to get scars even if I didn’t pick on my pimples / acne (I know TMI) and it’s worse when you’re brown or darker skin tone because those scars just take years to disappear. At one point, I literally couldn’t step outside my house without slapping some concealer on.. that’s how insecure it made me.

So I started using all natural face masks and treatments which would help them fade away faster. But I wanted to find something that would PREVENT them in the first place. I didn’t want to deal with them at all.

One day, I stumbled upon 10 step Korean skin care routine and I was OBSESSED because if you haven’t noticed.. it’s like every Korean has the most flawless skin ever. It’s so flawless I didn’t even believe it was real. I am not exaggerating at all. So it got me wondering how do they not have ANY kind of flaw on their faces. I researched for WEEKS and watched every single Korean skin care routine there is on YouTube. And BTW, their skin care products are decades ahead in terms of the technology and ingredients they use compared to Western skin care products.

So basically, at this point I have adapted 80% of the 10 step Korean skin care routine and I literally don’t get scars anymore. If I do (around that time of the month) they disappear in LESS THAN A WEEK.

You DON’T have to adopt or change the whole skin care routine because it’s only ONE thing that saves me from all those scars.. it’s SUNSCREEN.

WHY SUNSCREEN?

I had heard this from an aesthetician a long time ago but I didn’t pay it any attention because I thought she was just sponsoring some products. But I really should have listened to her.

She explained me that when you pick your skin or pimples, it leaves a mark. But if you don’t protect your skin with sunscreen, that mark can turn darker because of the sun’s UV rays.. just like the way you get tanned. I especially didn’t listen to her because I lived in Ireland at the time and we barely get any sun there. But even the sun’s UVA and UVB rays can affect the scars and make them darker. So as soon as I started using sunscreen, I immediately noticed I didn’t even get the scars.. even if I had a few pimples (which I rarely get now because of this skin care regime). And when I get those ‘monthly’ pimples around the jawline, the scars literally fade in a few days.

Currently I am using Paula’s Choice Extra Care Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 50 but I only recommend this one for dry skin types. It’s not greasy at all but it leaves a tiny bit of sheen on the face so if you’re oily.. it might leave your face looking like a disco ball. I really like it because it sits on my desert-skin really well. I absolutely love it because it doesn’t leave a white cast, it’s fragrance-free, cruelty-free and water resistant. I recommend you wear a sunscreen with minimum SPF 30 on an everyday basis. As well as this, use sunscreens with a good formula that doesn’t contain too many harsh chemicals. Paula’s Choice have really high quality skin care products at a decent price.They also have other sunscreens with Matte Finish if you have oily skin. And I am not sponsored by them. This is my honest opinion! 

Watching Korean skin care routines, I’ve learnt that they highly recommend Japanese sunscreen brands such as Biore. If you want to find your perfect sunscreen, RatzillaCosme is the website for you. Because it’s literally a directory of reviews for every Korean and Japanese skin care product that is out there. It will filter out products specific to your skin type, sensitivity, ingredients etc…

Let me know if you guys want to see my full skin care routine because it has TREMENDOUSLY changed my skin for life.. and I am talking, the pimples, acne, scars, texture, pores, elasticity, plumpness etc…

Gothamista, a well known YouTuber shares videos regarding Korean skin care. She is my FAVOURITE skin care guru on YouTube! I learnt a lot from her channel.

Product Claims:

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule is a dupe of Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex (which is a CULT skin care product of many).

I’ve tried this product for more than a month now and I think it’s one of the best ampoules/serums I’ve tried so far. Although I am only 21 and I don’t have any wrinkles, I recently experienced extremely dry and dehydrated skin. This serum was like a fountain of youth in a bottle for me. It really hydrates my skin from a cellular level.

I use it after cleansing and applying toner in my daytime and nighttime skin care routine. (more…)
