What to look for to fix acne scarring and uneven texture

So I'm shopping for a male friend of mine who has a lot of issues with acne scars and uneven texture, I'm not quite sure what to look for. They do have a budget but they're open to anything and if you don't have a specific product that's ok too, I'm just wondering what I should be looking for them.

Re: What to look for to fix acne scarring and uneven texture


In short, chemical peels & vitamin c can be great for improving texture & fading scarring or spots. I think there are also products with both. If his skin is sensitive, however, maybe don't mix acids & vitamin c. So, maybe start with those & see how it works - keeping in mind things need time to improve depending on how bad things are. Also, when he starts using actives they can cause some skin purging but that shouldn't last more than a few weeks. 😉

In addition, he should make sure to keep his skin hydrated & wear SPF. Other than that, niacinamide & retinol are beneficial too - but I think starting simple would be best.

Maybe do some research on those ingredients so he can see what appeals to him.

Hope that helps a little.
