Reader Yuki wrote in with this question:-
Hi Paris… Would like to ask you something… Any tips for getting rid of those pesky scars left by pimples? I’ve tried quite a few things and it takes forever for them to disappear…
I wrote back to Yuki with only some brief pointers as to what I use, as I too find getting rid of scars or marks from pimples a near impossible task 🙁 Essentially, I said that time appears to be the best healer.
Skin takes roughly 28 days to regenerate so it might be best to sit it out. To help things along, pure Vitamin E oil helps lighten marks and scars but you cannot expect immediate results.
Another way might be to use a whitening serum or mask often. It lightens skin and so will lighten the marks left behind by the pimples. Some tips found in a previous post about lightening pigmentation after going out in the sun might help.
Do you have other tips?
How do you get rid of pimple scars or marks?
Keep those questions coming yeah? You can email me at parisb (at) mywomenstuff.com. The readers out there are a wealth of information and I’ve learnt so much myself! 🙂
