What is acne scarring?

After pores have become inflamed with excess oil, cellular debris and bacteria following an acne eruption, they then swell causing the follicle wall to become enlarged and even possibly break. Acne scarring can vary from mild to moderate and acne suffers are not always affected by scarring.

What causes acne scarring?

Acne scarring is often caused from the picking and squeezing of inflamed spots or the picking of scabs from dried breakouts.

UV exposure, without with the use of SPF, can make the skin hyperpigment causing marks, and scarring can be a result of the body trying to repair itself.
