Scars, Scrapes, and Scratches- Be Gone!
From scrapes and scratches to nicks and bumps, to pesky scars left behind from acne, even beauty-loving glamazons are prone to skin discolorations. Fear not though, we here at Haut Appetit have you covered. A mere little dark spot isn’t going to keep us from clear skin. Here are our go-to products for soothing scraped skin.
Merderma is a line full of products designed specifically for scars and other skin ailments, so naturally they’re first on our list. Collagen, antioxidants and peptides combine to make a strong formula that’s effective. An added pro? You can smear it on thick while you sleep and not have to worry about looking good while it works its magic.
Whether it be dark spots from the sun or from acne scars from ages ago, Clinique has the solution with their Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Remover. This serum is ideal for all skin types, not just oily skin, and has rave reviews to back it up. Dark spot don’t stand a chance.
Scar treatment doesn’t have to cost a fortune! The drugstore answer to our problem comes courtesy of Clean & Clear. We used this brand as teenagers and still find it reliable today. Their Advantage Mark Treatment is a little tube that packs a big punch. The formula’s Salicylic acid treats existing acne and prevents new zits from forming while Glycolic acid promotes skin regeneration. And all for under $10.
Using Vitamin C to heal scars and spot, C20 comes to the rescue with their Original Pure Vitamin Serum. Their extra high dosage of the C (20%!) and other acne fighting ingredients make for a serum that brightens skin and reduces blackheads in the future.
Benton is one of our favorite K-beauty brands and they’re aimed for success once again with their Steam Cream. Using a high concentration of snail mucin and bee venom (both of which have regenerative properties for skin), this miracle cream fades scars, prevents acne and brightens skin tone. And don’t worry – it’s totally scent-free!
