How to reduce and prevent the appearance of acne scars?

Acne Scars, although common, sometimes persist despite all efforts. This article explores in detail the causes and the éméo care protocol, and also examines how certain key ingredients can transform your skincare routine. Additionally, we will address the potential link between diet, especially gluten, and acne.

Causes of Acne Scars

Acne scars can vary in severity depending on the acne's gravity, duration, skin type, and applied treatment. Preventing these scars is optimal, but even with the best care, some scars may persist in the short or long term.

Skincare Protocol for Active Acne

When acne is still active, it is crucial to choose suitable products to regulate sebum production, cleanse pores, and reduce inflammation. The éméo range offers a specific protocol for this phase.

  • Morning:
    • Liniment
    • Rose Hydrosol or Hydro-floral Lotion
    • Acnérium Serum
  • Evening
    • Liniment
    • Hydrosol or Hydro-floral Lotion
    • Organic Aloe Vera
  • Additional Tips:
    • Abandon all conventional cosmetics to maximize the benefits of éméo skincare.
    • Be persistent; the skin may worsen before showing signs of improvement.

Diet, Gluten, and Acne

There is evidence suggesting that a gluten-free diet can help clarify the skin. In a case study, a woman struggled with severe acne problems, having tried various unsuccessful treatments. Her doctor recommended a gluten-free diet and vitamin D supplementation. After a few months, her acne began to improve, highlighting the importance of diet in skin health.

Properties of Acnérium Serum

Your skin, prone to imperfections, deserves special attention. Acnérium Serum, composed of four vegetable oils and three essential oils, is specially formulated for oily and imperfect skin.

Key Ingredients

Carrier Oils:

  • Grape Seed Oil (Tightens Pores): Regulator, prevents excessive sebum production, reducing shine in the T-zone, and tightens dilated pores, minimizing blackhead formation.
  • Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil (Antioxidant and Regulator): Antioxidant, anti-radical, and vitamin-rich, promotes the regulation of oily skin and reduces acne scars.
  • Black Cumin Seed Oil (Anti-imperfections): Known for its soothing properties, promotes skin repair and reduces acne scars without leaving a greasy feeling.

  • Geranium Essential Oil (Relaxing and Astringent): Tonic and anti-inflammatory, contributes to soothing the skin.
  • Helichrysum Essential Oil (Anti-inflammatory and Healing): Aids in the healing of imperfections.

Different Types of Acne Scars

It is crucial to understand the types of acne scars to adapt your care approach. Generally, hypertrophic scars, atrophic scars, and ice-pick scars are distinguished.

  • Hypertrophic Scars: These scars form when the body produces too much collagen during the healing process, creating a raised area of the skin.
  • Atrophic Scars: These scars result from a loss of skin tissue, creating hollows or indentations. They are often divided into subcategories such as boxcar scars and rolling scars.
  • Ice-Pick Scars: They are deep and narrow, resembling small holes pierced in the skin.

Care for Recent Acne Scars

Most scars will naturally fade. To expedite the process, you can use our "ONE" roll-on with vegetable and essential oils tailored to your skin type.

Care for Old Atrophic Scars:

Aloe Vera, followed by Acnérium Serum, can help reduce the appearance of atrophic scars. Aloe Vera gel contains salicylic acid (BHA), known for its gentle exfoliating properties. This promotes cell renewal, helping to smooth the skin's texture and reduce the appearance of atrophic scars.
