Effective Ways to Heal Acne Scarring


There are two different ways to exfoliate: manual and chemical.  My favorite type of manual exfoliation is microdermabrasion.  You can either get microdermabrasion done by a dermatologist or by using the PMD. There are many different chemical exfoliants, some are in at home use products and some are stronger that should only be used by a dermatologist.  I find that by using a weaker product more regularly is just as effective as getting a chemical peel a few time a year.  My favorite face wash is Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser which does a fantastic job at exfoliation. Be very careful when you first begin exfoliating, it can often irritate the skin.
