There are rules to dealing with acne, Don’t pop it Don’t pick itDon’t squeeze it. This only leads to furthering the inflammatory process of comedones, pustules, and papules. Use “non-comedogenic” cosmetics and toiletries.  “Non-comedogenic means that the product does not promote acne.” Wash your face upon awakening, after school or work and again at bedtime times with a mild soap.  Washing too much causes dryness.  Hard scrubbing irritates the skin which breaks the protective skin barrier which allows for more bacteria to enter the pores creating more acne problems. A good tan will temporarily hide your acne; it is not beneficial for your skin in the long run.

There are different kinds of acne scarring: ice-pick scarring, atrophic scarring, and hypertrophic scarring. Ice pick scars are pitted scars. Atrophic scars are pitted and can have a smooth border around the scar itself, but really deep. Hypertrophic scar, are common on the chest and back areas. The scars look like thick lumpy scars on the skin, but the big difference is the scars are raised on the skin not pitted like the other two.
