The DIY Skincare Routine Helping Me Fade My Acne Scars
I took small steps initially and tackled the skin staining, or red marks, first. My first port of call was regularly applying sunscreen. Skin specialists aren’t lying when they say that a high factor SPF specifically intended for the face is key. Despite pricey recommendations, I found that The Body Shop’s Skin Defence SPF 50, £17, worked best for me. Light as a feather, it doesn’t block my pores or lead to more spots. Dr Justine Kluk adds: “If you keep out of the sun, you could expect to see red or brown marks fading to some degree over the first year post-treatment.” However, she notes, you can optimise this further through skincare.
