      Women’s skin typically comes in three basic types. They either have, normal skin, dry, or oily. Dry skin does
      not shed as it should and those built-up layers of dead skin cells can feel rough and cause skin to look flaky
                                                         and dull.

                                                       Dealing With Acne Scarring
                                                                 By Garrett Lynn

    Acne is a condition that is common and can affect people from their teens throughout adulthood.
Acne can lead to severe scarring for reasons that are not fully understood. The severity of scarring is
different with each person, sometimes leading to disfiguring and permanent scars. The term "scarring"
refers to permanent texture changes in the skin due to damaged collagen from inflammation. Scars are
formed at the location of an injury to tissue, which is caused by the bodies inflammatory response to
sebum, dead cells and bacteria in the plugged sebaceous follicle.

Some people are more susceptible to acne scarring, suffering from severe inflammatory acne,
occurring deep within the skin, or even from more superficial inflamed lesions. Acne scarring is also
described by several patients as a discoloration of their skin, even months after the acne lesion has

The life history of acne scarring is not well understood. Some people obtain scars that stay with them
for a lifetime with little to no change, whereas others are able to see a degree of remodeling as the
acne scars reduce in size over time. Acne scarring can be devastating for people who suffer from it,
which can lead to immediate treatment to remove or diminish the scarring effects. It is hard to gauge
how extensive and deep the scars will be, or what is the best method to prevent and treat acne
scarring before it happens.

There are several different types of acne scarring including; ice pick scarring, atrophic scarring and
hypertrophic scarring. Ice pick scars are usually small deep pitted scars with steep jagged edges.
Atrophic scars are smaller and soft, and over time change color and reduce in size. Hypertrophic scars
are thick and lumpy and sit above the surface of the skin, much more common on the back and chest.

Acne scarring can be treated early in its course, by reducing the amount of inflammation in order to
prevent permanent damage. Since the severity of scarring is different with each person, any person
who tends to scar easy should be under the care of a dermatologist. The best way to prevent even
minor scarring is to take care of your skin by using lotion, sunblock or medication to allow your skin to
stay healthy. Acne can be stopped even before happening with the right care and understanding more
about your skin. Your dermatologist will be able to best assess what treatment is necessary in order to
treat or prevent any future acne scars.

                                                 Different Types Of Acne Scarring
                                                             By Angela Myers

 Acne scarring is one of the most embarrassing skin problems faced by many. When acne damages
the original skin or the hair follicle, the scarred tissues form a shape. This is known as acne scarring.

While there are many types of acne scarring, three of them are generally found : ice pick pore scars,
acne out scars, and raised scars. Interestingly, these types were identified while in the process of
classifying acne scarring which is of great help to doctors to diagnose and treat various acne scars.

The ice pick pore scars is the first type of acne scarring. These are big and deep scars with pores
which are open. It looks like as if the skin was pricked with a sharp-edged instrument like the ice pick.
When a deep pimple or a skin cyst damages the hair follicle through infection that reaches the top of
the skin, it gives way to ice pick pore scars.

Acne pit scars are the second type of acne scarring. These appear as slightly depressed skin, with
indentations. This type of acne scarring is a result of pimples or cysts which have damaged the skin
resulting in the formation of scar tissue.

Raised scars, or the third type of acne scarring are formed when many big cysts are clumped together.
This gathering of cysts result in the formation of a lump of raised tissue on the skin. Hence the name :
raised scars.

One can prevent acne scarring. You should never pick, squeeze or pinch the pimples. You can even
reduce the acne scarring marks, by using glycolic peels and other special creams which soften the
scar tissues. Easily available in the market, these items improve skin texture too. Over and above this,
acne scarring can be prevented or completely stopped with dermabrasion, laser resurfacing or
collagen injections. These are some of the very effective choices you have. Some vitamins and
minerals like Vitamins A and E and zinc also help in the reduction of acne scarring.

So don’t let acne scarring come between you and your life. Take help from the steps mentioned above
or you may decide to consult your doctor before you try any of these methods.
