  • Inflamed acne lesions are more likely to leave scars than non-inflamed lesions and pimples. Avoid aggressive scrubbing, harsh skin care products, etc, which may irritate the skin further and lead to inflammation.

  • Squeezing a pimple can force debris deeper into the follicle, lead to infection, and worsen a blemish. This may further lead to acute inflammation and damage the skin's tissues as well. Popping a pimple can extend the healing time and leave a permanent scar. Allow the blemish to heal on its own and don't interfere in its natural healing process.

  • Picking at scabs should be avoided at all costs as scabs form to protect the healing process that is going on underneath them. Pulling a scab off before it is ready to fall on its own interferes with the healing. Such scabs are more likely to leave scars.
