The Derm-Approved Ways to Deal with the Most Common Acne Scars


For those who suffer from acne, current pimples aren’t always the problem, often it’s the scarring that’s left behind that can leave many of us feeling less than confident rocking a bare face. So why does this happen in the first place, and beyond applying a full-coverage foundation, what are the options at hand to deal?
