How to get rid of acne scars
The prospect of acne scarring seems to be a growing concern, as a fair few people I know may have been pinned as pimple pickers in their time. You know, the ones who couldn't (and perhaps still can't) help but play with their spots, in turn making them worse, and leaving one heck of a spotty souvenir on their complexion.
Yep, I'm getting more and more queries about the best ways to get rid of acne scars from those close to me, so I thought it was time to put myself to work and pick out some of the best acne scar saviours and share them with you all - with a little help from our beautyheaven members...

Alpha-H Liquid Gold
We say: Beloved by the beauty industry and consumers alike, this skin resurfacing treatment has truly earned its cult status. And with a five-star rating from over 130 reviews, the beautyheaven community certainly gives it a thumbs up, too. Formulated with 5% cosmetic grade glycolic acid, licorice extract and silk proteins, this treatment will have your skin glowing.
You say: "I have used liquid gold for years and I still appreciate it every time I use it. I apply it once a week at night and put nothing over it. In the morning, I notice my skin is radiant and soft. It keeps my pimples at bay and helps with my acne scarring. It has a very slight tingling feeling on the skin but causes no irritation. The bottle lasts a very long time and is a worthwhile investment for everyone. I cannot recommend this highly enough.” - Rk2002

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
We say: This 100 per cent pure organic rosehip oil is one of beautyheaven’s top picks for helping fade acne scars. Extracted from the seeds of organically-grown rosehips, this oil contains powerful antioxidants and essential fatty acids that help to help repair, strengthen and hydrate the skin, while also working to prevent the signs of ageing. Plus, with its five-star rating (from 160 reviews) and multiple Best In Beauty wins, we can safely say this oil as the beautyheaven member seal of approval!
You say: “I decided to give this a go one day and now I absolutely love it. I like to put it on at night before bed so that it can soak into my skin while I sleep. I have noticed that my skin isn't getting as oily throughout the day when I put this on at night so I am trying to get into the habit of applying every night. Helping to reduce some slight scarring from acne on my face as well. I am also trying it on a surgery scar on my neck and have noticed it is working better than my bio-oil” - beautyheaven member aeemarie
