Are acne scars making you self-conscious or embarrassed about your skin?
While some people are lucky enough to have blemishes that just come and go without leaving a trace, others are left with visible reminders of their past breakouts, which can lead to an emotional ride.
We all know that finding the right product for our skin concerns is not that easy… nobody said it was….especially if you live with the fear of breaking out. Sticking with what you know works for you is not always the best thing to do either, your skin might get used to products and they will start losing their effectiveness, so rotating products is always a good option. If you don’t need to find other alternatives and you just need something that might help you fight your breakouts, this post is for you too.
This isn't news to anyone, but I feel it bears repeating: Acne scars suck. Anyone who has suffered from post-pimple hyperpigmentation knows this truth to be self-evident. And, post-puberty, they affect every age and skin color. They manifest as red or brown marks that can last weeks — and sometimes, for the really unlucky, months.
Some people find that acne scars are an unwanted reminder of a painful and bothersome condition. Active breakouts are frustrating enough, but the scars acne can leave behind can feel downright diabolical. The good news is that acne scar can be treated. However, before treatment can start you first have to get rid of any acne once and for all since new breakouts can lead to new acne scars.
Acne scarsalso have a notorious reputation for being stubborn with no single treatment that is best for everyone. We need to go through a lot of appointments with dermatologists and seek recommendations on what would really work out for our skin.
The best option to lighten acne scars and marks is to useBanish products!Here are a few recommendations of the best products for your acne scars:
Banish Kit 2.0 – The all new Banish Kit 2.0 is your number one companion in combating acne scars, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and in increasing product absorption. This kit is inclusive of the Banisher 2.0, your choice of Banish Oil or Vitamin C Creme.
Banish Oil– TheBanish Oil is a Vitamin C Serum formulated without any silicone, artificial fragrance, dyes or preservatives and it is made with the most potent form of Vitamin C which is the L-ascorbic acid. This is best paired up with the Banisher as it helps speed up the healing of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), smooths out boxcar and ice pick scars and improves the overall look and texture of your skin.
Vitamin C Creme– The Banish Vitamin C Creme may be used even if you don’t have acne as this cream benefits or works for all skin types.

Pumpkin Enzyme Masque- The BanishPumpkin Enzyme Masque is a 15-minute exfoliating masque inspired by nature to reveal your best skin. It is formulated with natural pumpkin enzymes, alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs and glycolic acid to help improve your skin’s clarity. This masque also works best even for those who don’t have acne. Expect a mild tingling sensation upon applying this masque as the pumpkin enzymes are doing their work in removing any dead skin cells.
Use this masque up to 3 times a week or move it to once a week to maintain results. It can also be used more often if your skin tolerates it. But please do avoid sun exposure or wear SPF while using the product.

If you think there's no hope for stubborn scars, think again. The upside is that many treatments can remove or fade these scars, making them less noticeable and helping you regain your self-confidence. Acne is never ever permanent so don’t lose hope.
