Burn Scar DetailEveryone wants acne off of their face quickly, but trying to pick at or pop your pimples only leaves marks on the face for a longer period of time.  Commonly, picking at or popping your pimples leads to more inflammation on the skin, which causes the pimple to stick around for longer.  Picking at your skin can also cause scabs to develop as the areas heal; unfortunately, these scabs can be as unsightly as the original pimple.  According to acne expert Dr. Schweiger, "The formation of scabs on the skin indicate that the skin is healing.  It is important not to pick these scabs off of the skin, which can cause scarring." If you develop scabs on your skin after picking at acne, there are a few tips to follow to best heal acne scabs.  We recommend using a gentle cleanser in the morning and evening, which should be applied with your fingers.  Do not scrub at your skin with a rough washcloth.  After cleansing in the morning, be sure to apply a moisturizing sunscreen.  In the evening, a rich (but non-comedogenic) moisturizing cream should be applied to the skin to promote healing.  If acne is still present on the skin, you can apply a small amount of benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid to the spots to get rid of the active acne quickly.
