How to Minimize a Scar

Have you ever wondered what my self-care ritual looks like? Well, wonder no more because I’m about to tell you all my secrets!  

First, I have my daily, weekly, and monthly self-care rituals. However, once every quarter, I like to treat myself to the ultimate self-care experience. Today, I’m sharing my quarter ritual with you. 

I start by filling up the bath with lavender-scented Epsom salts, brew a cup of my favorite honey lavender stress relief tea.

Then, I turn on some classical music or some smooth jazz(when I want to feel grown and sexy). Doing this helps me unwind, relax, and let go of all the stress that stands in the way of me looking and feeling my absolute best!

You can't completely prevent scarring in most cases, but these steps can minimize your chance of developing post-acne scars on your face or back:

Lastly, I start my weekly skincare routine. I cleanse and exfoliate, next, I put on a clay-based enzyme mask to help “eat away” the dead skin cells. After that, I apply my favorite hydrating moisturizer and get dressed. At times, I head over to my sister’s place to spend quality time with my babies.

There you have it, friends! After a few minutes, I’m refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to seize the day.

Isn’t it interesting how everyone finds their unique methods, routines, and rituals that work for them? 

I guess it makes sense because no two people are the same! 

I’m curious, what does your self-care ritual look like?

How to Prevent Acne Scars?

I didn’t want to end this post without sharing with you exactly how to reduce and prevent post-acne scarring. Yes, acne scars can be reduced with proper skincare. Here are some of my best tips/tricks to help prevent scarring:

  • Don’t squeeze, pop, and  pick at the pimples or scabs
  • Know if you are prone to scarring
  • See an esthetician or dermatologist when dealing with acne or cysts. Don’t waste time waiting around. The longer it remains on your skin the higher the chances of scarring becoming permanent. 
  • Do your best to reduce inflammation (You can use Ice to help reduce the inflammation) I recorded an Instagram video to walk you through step-by-step. The video is titled:
  • Treat Acne as Soon as It Develops
  • Most importantly, Prevent Acne at all costs. Doing so will help you prevent acne scars in the long run
