So the acne is gone, but you’re left behind with red marks or deep scarring and have no idea how to fix it. How can you speed up the healing process of acne scarring to reveal a clear, smooth complexion once again?
End the search, I’ve found the cure.
How to cure acne scarring is one of the most commonly asked questions I get asked everyday. What if I told you there was a way to magically speed up the healing process and help improve the appearance of acne scarring?
How Acne Scars Are Formed
Acne scarring can strike at any age as a result of moderate to severe acne. In particular, the formation of cysts or nodules can cause inflammation and damage the natural collagen in your skin.
Then there are the red marks that appear when your skin is trying to heal itself. The good news is that most red marks are not permanent and are easy to cure.
Acne Scar Removal Products
I’ve tried and tested countless scar removal methods over the years, some with no success at all. There are thousands of products available promising amazing results but deliver nothing. I’m here to clear the air on what works, and what doesn’t.
Your Go-To Acne Scar Removal Product
It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. The product that will become the staple product in your bathroom for curing acne scarring is rose hip oil.
Yes, oil. I’m telling you to put oil on your skin. Seems crazy huh? Truth is, brands have been brainwashing you for YEARS. You’ve been told to use oil-free products if you have acne and dry your skin out completely to help heal and prevent breakouts.
I’m here to tell you otherwise. Oil is not the enemy and will not ruin your skin. In fact, certain fruit oils can actually re-balance your skin and give it the hydration it needs, thus minimise breakouts. The best part is that it not only rebalances your skin, but it also helps to improve the appearance of acne scarring.
If you dry your skin out too much, it will not only become dehydrated but it will also be more prone to further scarring. The best thing you can do for your skin is keep it hydrated, both inside and out. That means you must eat foods that hydrate your body internally, drink lots of water and maintain a good skincare routine.
The best type of oil for your skin is rose hip oil. It’s packed full of essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants to keep your skin hydrated and help to improve the appearance of any scarring.
You only need 2-3 drops to reap the benefit of this magical oil. Simply massage into clean, damp skin morning and night. Follow this daily for up to three months to see best results.
Which One Do I Use?
Quality is very important when it comes to oils. Although you may not think it, there is a difference between budget rose hip oil and a premium quality rose hip oil.
Look for Certified Organic rose hip oil that has been accredited by the USDA, ACO, ECOCERT or BioGro. An organic governing body has officially accredited any oil with this accreditation and you are guaranteed to receive the real deal.
Rose hip oil should be dark. Not clear. Rose hips are red so it’s only natural that the oil should be a similar colour. If the rose hip oil is lighter than a golden yellow, try something else. The darker your rose hip oil is, the higher the quality.
How Do I Use It?
There are three golden rules to live by when using rose hip oil.
1. Firstly, rose hip oil must be applied to clean skin after cleansing or exfoliating.
2. Secondly, it MUST be applied to DAMP skin to help with absorption. Never apply to dry skin.
3. Thirdly, less is best. You only need to use 2-3 drops. This will be more than enough to cover your face and neck area.
P.S Don’t be surprised if your skin purges a little after using this product, it’s known to detox the skin and release any built up grime that has been trapped under the skin.
