4 Ways To Get Rid Of Acne Scars
No one can be blamed for wanting to know how to get rid of acne scars. More than just spots, acne can be physically and emotionally painful, and result in different types of acne scars and dark spots.
What Causes Acne Scars?
There are two basic types of acne, inflammatory and non-inflammatory. Inflammatory acne, including papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts, often cause acne scars and dark marks. Blemishes on acne-prone skin happen when pores are clogged with excess oils and dead skin cells.
The pores swell and eventually break open on the skin’s surface, which produces a lesion. Smaller lesions often heal completely, but larger lesions can leave scars and marks.
