How to take care of your skin to avoid post-acne marks

Before telling you how you can eliminate or hide acne marks, we want to teach you how to protect your skin so that you do not even have to fight against pimples on your skin.

The best advice we can give you to maintain a healthy complexion is: exfoliate the skin.

Exfoliating the skin means that we eliminate dead cells, it should be noted that our skin exfoliates itself every maximum of 30 days, but as we already know, as the body ages it does not perform its functions as it should, so we have to help it. So we must exfoliate our skin on both the face and the whole body once a week. Remember that exfoliation will leave you a visibly healthy complexion, thus helping you to significantly reduce any stains or damage that we may have.

How do we do it?

We add a tablespoon of sugar to the moisturizing cream that we use daily, apply very gently and in circular movements. Then we remove it with plenty of cold water.
