Episode Summary:

If you want to say goodbye to acne scars quicker, then stick around because on today’s episode I’m running through my top tips and tricks, as well as the best K-Beauty products to send them on their way ASAP.

What Causes Acne Scarring?

  • Acne scars are caused by inflamed lesions that form on the skin.
  • The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. If the rupture occurs near the skin’s surface, the lesion is usually minor and heals quickly. Serious lesions however spill out onto the dermis and destroy healthy skin tissue.
  • Although the skin works to repair itself, it’s finished “repair job” is never the same as before the injury, leaving evidence of the acne scar.
  • On today’s episode we will be focusing more on the red or coloured marks left behind after acne rather than deeper, pitted scars. They require a different method to see improvement, so we can tackle them in a later episode

Best Acne Scar Fading Treatments

There are a whole range of different beauty ingredients in K-Beauty products that are designed to fade acne scars quickly. Some of my favourite acne mark fading ingredients to look out for include:

Vitamin C

Vitamin C has many great benefits for the skin, including improvement in active breakouts and increased collagen production. It also provides the skin with a brightening effect that can reduce and improve the appearance of pigmentation and post-acne scars.


This is a form of Vitamin B3 that works well for overall brightening, including reducing the appearance of uneven skin tone, redness and acne.

Snail Secretion Filtrate

A wonder beauty ingredient beloved by Korean Beauty fans that contains skin-friendly antioxidants, proteins, elastin, and glycolic acids. Snail mucin is especially helpful for breakouts, uneven skin tone and acne scarring. Try COSRX, Mizon and APLB.


This powerful antioxidant also has the ability to brighten and even out the skin tone. It treats acne directly and helps reduce the number of acne scars, uneven skin tone, and marks caused by acne, which is important for keeping the skin healthy in the long run.

Try APLB’s Glutathione products.

Some of my favourite K-Beauty picks:

Pimple Treatments

As the old saying goes, ‘prevention is better than a cure’. Not picking at your pimples in the first place goes a long way to minimize scarring.

Subi Perfect Pimple Patch tackles breakouts quickly, painlessly and with as minimal scarring as possible.

Made with medical-grade hydrocolloid, this luxury pimple patch is the thinnest, most invisible patch on the market. If you get pimples in hard-to-reach places (like the side of the nose or around your mouth) then these are your patches. The thinness, stickiness and absorptive powers of Subi’s patches means they stay in place long enough to effectively tackle the pimples that other patches can’t.
