Question from a reader:
I had acne all my life, it is mostly under control now, with the occasional pimple. I’m now left with scarring, its not terrible, but it is noticeable as well as large pores. I want to know the best way of getting rid of them completely. I’ve tried IPL which helped but didn’t completely remove the scars. Please can someone help – my sanity depends on you! Thank you!
Answer: One of the best ways to get rid of acne scarring and large pores is to use a 20% Salicylic acid peel, it works extremely well to close up the pores and when used regularly or once a week, it will reduce pore size.
For regular scarring you might want to use a Glycolic acid peel of 30% and above. Other alternatives include a bleaching agent like hydroquinone but be careful, hydroquinone is extremely potent and should only be used in small quantities and short periods of time. You should not use it on the whole face but only on the spots.
For daily pore reduction try splashing your face with ice-cold water after a bath or after you wash your face. This will lead to noticeable reductions in pore size right away.
