The most important aspect is to prevent instead of having it cured. There are numerous remedies, but the first action to be to avoid its presence at all. It is not always necessary that you’d have scars if you have pimples. The initial way of keeping your acnes away from spots is to stop touching them. Don’t have your hands on the acnes or don’t try to prick them. Leave them alone or treat it as they can be treated. If the pimples are slowly coming off, try to remove them gently and don’t be hard on them.

Acnes result in inflammation and they lose out of collagen. The protein fiber of collagen provides elasticity to the skin, so pricking the acnes lead to further inflaming. The bacteria and pus goes deep down and result in loss of collagen and that is when you start having deeper scars on face.
