HOW I TREAT MY ACNE SCARS

Self diagnosed, I think I might also have redness and irritation from over exfoliation, retinol and (too) high percentage of Niacinamide. A lethal combination that eventually weaken my skin barrier, triggered more inflammation and irritation. 

And being an adult with acne didn’t help either. So, if you have Acne-Related Redness problem like me, read on.

I believe, it is best to identify the cause of redness first, in order to pick and choose your skincare products wisely. 

A few tips:

  • Choose soothing and natural ingredients like aloe, oat, cucumber, licorice or chamomile that actually has been proven to calm redness. 
  • Wear sunscreen in the morning
  • Keep a simple skin care routine
  • Last but not least, do not pick on your acne
