Are you frustrated because of acne breakout and the dreadful appearance of acne scars?
Acne is one of the most common skin problems, and it has a great impact on one’s appearance, self-esteem, and overall well-being. The etiology of acne is multifactorial, and the causative agents responsible for this condition are pollution, dirt, oil, makeup, diet, stress, and hormones. Many people experience this severe form of disorder in their adolescence phase and sometime later, and that is most bothersome as their appearance is affected.
Acne results in scars when they are present deep within the skin, thereby damaging the skin tissues. These depressions or scars appear when there is not enough collagen produced during the healing process. An individual can get rid of these scars by using certain home remedies or in-office treatments by a dermatologist.
