Curing Black Spots from Acne

Last year Men's Health Magazine published an acne piece that focused on men suffering from dark spots on their face as a consequence of acne and endorsed our Pigmentation Repair Formula as the best product to get rid of dark spots from acne and to fade acne scars.

With the number of people suffering from acne today, it's not surprising to hear that so many end-up with dark acne scars. We receive a lot emails and phone calls from customers looking for an effective acne treatment that can help them clear their skin and eliminate those dark spots left by acne blemishes. A good number of these customers are black -- acne scars tend to be particularly unexceptional in African-American skin. This occurs when pores become clogged with sebum (the oily substance on the skin) and bacteria (known as P. acnes). When the clog occurs below the skin surface, this creates a “whitehead,” which in turn generates uneven skin tones (called "hyperpigmentation"). Usually these can fade over time, but depending on the severity of the acne, it is recommended that they are treated with ingredients that can help even skin color and promote a smoother surface.

Generally, acne dark spots create emotional stress and upsets the acne sufferer to the point of leading some to skin bleaching attempts to get rid of dark spots.

Acne sufferers with dark spots (acne scars) should use pigmentation creams with Retinol, Kojic Acid and Vitamin C to fade dark areas and balance skin tone. While treating dark spots, acne sufferers must protect their skin from the sun. This is specially true for people with light skin color as their skin contains less melanin (skin pigment) having less protection against the sun's rays. This means that you should use an oil-free sunblock with SPF 30 at all times.

It is also recommended that people suffering from dark spots due to acne, routinely use gentle exfoliating skin cleansers to buff away dead skin cells and dull buildup, revealing new cells for an even tone. Face scrubs with Glycolic acid are ideal for this, because it sheds upper layers of skin, leading to smoother, softer skin, and reducing the appearance of dark spots.

One thing that you should always keep in mind is that what caused the dark spots was the acne -- you must treat the acne with acne medicine to prevent breakouts and more dark spots.

We highly recommend Acne Treatment System to eliminate acne permanently. A 3-step acne treatment clinically developed with dermatological-grade acne medication.
