Natural Ways to Get Rid of Acne Scars

Does your scar bother you? We at the Zara, Asian Bridal Makeup Artist London UK, bring you natural ways to get rid of acne scars. Nobody likes a scar on his face and wants it to go away.  It can affect your appearance and can make you feel less confident. An acne scar is formed as a part of the natural healing process following acne. When the second layer of skin, the dermis is damaged, our body makes collagen fibers to repair the damage, and that creates a scar. So a severe scar is made based on the severity of the damage.

There are different types of acne scars like Atrophic scars, Boxcar scars, and Ice pick scars:

Atrophic scars:

Atrophic scars are formed by the loss of tissue. They are seen flat against the upper layer of the skin. Atrophic scars form darker skin pigmentation than the rest of the skin.

Boxcar scars:

Boxcar scars are broad. They form a box-like depression and sharply defined edges.

Ice pick scars:

Ice pick scars are usually smaller. They are narrow scratches down into the skin's surface.
