How long does it take to get rid of zits from your face? In some people, pimples disappear within a few days. While in others it may take longer. But, what happens after the pimples disappear? Healing of acne will not bring back your skin condition as smooth as usual. It is precisely what often happens; pimples that have disappeared leave a trace of black spots that are hard to remove. Acne scars in the form of black (or reddish) spots on the skin are usually known as Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). Why are black spots on acne scars difficult to lose?

Sensitive skin type

Unlike the Caucasian skin that is prone to sunburnt, wrinkles, and susceptible to skin cancer, the skin character of Asians tends to not easily experience these problems. However, melanin substances produced by Asian skin have more photosensitive or receptive characteristics to light. Every time the skin is inflamed, primarily because of acne, black spots will appear that are hard to lose.

Not Using Sun Screen

Never ignore the use of skincare that contains SPF to protect your skin. Its function is to protect the substance melanin the skin, so it is not too reactive. At night, also do double (even triple!) Cleansing to remove all remaining SPF and makeup, and to minimize the possibility of new skin problems.

Wrong treatment

Basically, black spots can and indeed will disappear. But everyone's skin condition is different, some require weeks or even months to completely eliminate black spots (not to mention the emergence of new pimples that make this problem seemingly never finished!). Therefore, you cannot just stand up and hope that the black spots just disappear. To get rid of it faster, you must be careful.
