Shop Acne & Scarring Treatments

No need to grin and wear it! Clear up that skin, and help heal and prevent new scars. We've got you covered.

These are our best picks for acne and scarring treatments.

Want to help reduce the severity of breakouts? Try using a gentle cleanser that cleans thoroughly, without stripping the skin of its natural defenses. Some acne treatments can dry out the skin, so further stripping the skin can lead to it overcompensating with oil... which in turn leads to more breakouts! Stop the cycle in its tracks with some of our favourite cleansers. 

Next, follow up with a treatment serum. If you have breakouts, don't be afraid of the word acid - Salicylic Acid is a common treatment for acne, as it unclogs pores and works as an anti-inflammatory. Botanical ingredients (such as Tea Tree Oil) are also wonderful anti-bacterial agents if you have current breakouts.

If you want to heal acne scars, a powerful serum is your best bet. Look for products with Vitamin A and AHAs such as Glycolic Acid or Kojic Acid. Vitamin C products are also wonderful to help fade scars and reduce the impact of sun damage.

Don't skimp on moisturiser just because you're breaking out. Your skin needs to be hydrated so it can properly repair itself, so choose a moisturiser in accordance with your skin type. Make sure you don't forget your sunscreen - many acne & scarring treatments can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so protecting your skin can make heal time quicker. 

You'll know if you need to try something else if after four weeks you haven't seen much of an improvement. We can give you suggestions on where to go from there.

I was given a sample of this by my esthetician and I'm hooked! A little bit goes SUCH a long way. Yes, it's expensive, but based on how long the sample has lasted me I imagine the full-size bottle will last a very long time. I noticed such an improvement in my red irritated skin. I get pretty bad hormonal acne, and while this hasn't been TREATING my acne, it has helped calm my skin down and help with the redness and irritation. I will be purchasing a full-size bottle soon!

Love this

I’m 45 with sun damaged skin fair skin and I feel this makes a noticeable difference to my skin. Makes it smoother and fine lines are less noticeable. I use it every nite with skinstinuit vit c powder and I add a drop or 2 of face oil to it and it’s perfect. I think you have to build up to using it each nite...

Love it

After several years of trying several different facial cleansers, I think this is one I will stick with! I found no change to my skin with many other (more expensive) brands, but this definitely seems to be helping keep my skin clear. Very happy with Skinstitut!

Effective and affordable!

Stung my skin when I first used it, but overtime the sensation has gone away. Just make sure you don't use it with the toner from The Ordinary. The combination is known to sting. Otherwise, effective for reducing redness (use only at night!)
