How to get rid of acne scars
Acne is not a small problem. In fact, a whopping 85 percent of people between the ages of 12 and 24 are estimated to have experienced acne at least once in their lives, and it affects up to 50 million Americans alone every single year. No matter how common the problem, though, it's still shrouded in negativity and is usually a shameful experience for those suffering through it.
Anyone who has ever experienced acne knows the effects are not just physical, but mental as well. Those who have dealt with the sever inflammation to the skin of the face, neck and shoulders know that the embarrassment can also lead to sever mental stress — and that has lasting affects.
And the worst part is, even when you think it's over, it's not. It's hard enough to clear up acne, but even when the sores are gone, you're often left with scarring that can be just as depressing. It's just one hurdle after another, right? Luckily, most of those scars don't have to be permanent. I spoke with a few skincare experts who were more than happy to share their best tips on how to send those acne scars packing, for good.
