The question of how to conceal acne scars is a challenging one.
If you struggled with acne that left deep acne scarring, learning how to best conceal acne scars can make you feel confident in your appearance. Here is a run-down of the most popular categories of over-the-counter products for how to conceal acne scars.
- Scar creams, gels, and peels
- Traditional makeup
- Advanced cosmetics like Dermaflage.
Scar Removal Creams, Gels, and Peels
Scar creams, gels, and peels are a good option if you are looking to conceal milder acne scars. The main goal of scar removal formulas is to make acne scars fade. These formulas can either come in the form of a solution or a cream. Be careful with these products and consult your dermatologist if you have sensitive skin.
The active ingredients in scar treatment formulas exfoliate the skin, causing scarred cells to slough off which allows new, normal cells to form in the scarred cell’s place. Scar creams won’t give you instant results, but can show gradual improvement over time.
The photos below are an example from a leading scar removal product, Revitol. Revitol is a company that provides natural health and beauty products that they have researched and developed.
Most of these products take at least a month for results to be noticeable. These products are not intended to make acne scars disappear completely, rather they are used to fade scars and reduce discoloration. Since these products are chemically based they can irritate sensitive skin. Ouch!
Makeup to Conceal Acne Scars
It is worth talking to a make up artist about your particular acne scars, because there is not a one size fits all approach. And if you don’t have a good technique, make up can often backfire by creating a cakey, unnatural look.
There are different colored concealers for blocking out different shades of scars. Green concealers are best for covering red and pink scars, yellow concealers hide brown and purple scars, and makeup that matches your skin tone conceals white scars.
For many people who want to cover up their scars, makeup is the first option that comes to mind; however, it might not be the most effective. Makeup conceals discoloration, but is not great at creating an even texture on scarred skin. Make up can often highlight the uneven skin. Not good!
