How To Get Rid Of Acne Marks

Acne MarksAcne marks are caused by an inflamed lesion such as a papule or pustule. Inflammation occurs when the hair follicle or pore becomes clogged with excess oil, bacteria, dead skin cells and other debris. The pore swells causing a break in the follicle wall. If the break is near the skin’s surface, the pimple is usually minor and heals quickly. But if the rupture is deep then serious lesions occur.

The infected material escapes out into the dermis and destroys healthy skin tissue. The skin forms new collagen fibers to repair the damaged dermis but the skin loses its smooth and flawless look. Therefore even after the acne has healed, pink, red or purplish marks are left behind. Acne marks not only disfigure the skin and face but also destroy one’s self esteem and self confidence. However, acne marks can be easily reduced with basic skin care and some natural ingredients found in the kitchen.
