I have acne scars on my face from popping zits. How can I get rid of them?

 

You’ve learned the hard way that picking pimples can leave small scars or even big crater-like ones. The first kind—reddish and flat—aren’t so bad. They tend to fade within six months (if you leave them alone!). Others are bumpy with rough edges or look like depressions in your skin. If you’re dark-complected, you might get light patches where the zits were. You’re lucky—young skin easily repairs itself. First, get the zits in check. After all, fewer outbreaks equal less scarring, explains Los Angeles dermatologist Dr. Karyn Grossman. Use an antibacterial cleanser (like Cetaphil) twice a day, and try salicylic acid acne pads (such as Stridex Pads) once a day. At night, use a pea-sized dab of benzoyl peroxide lotion on affected areas. On scars that won’t go away, try an over-the-counter retinoid cream, which helps skin build collagen (look for products by Neutrogena or Roc). If those don’t help, your dermatologist can give you a prescription for Retin A. If that doesn’t do the trick, your dermo might recommend laser resurfacing, chemical peels or other options. Now, no more popping!
