The red or brown marks that remain after blemishes have healed are known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks. When our skin tissue is injured - as is the case with the pimples of acne, an excessive amount of melanin can accumulate. This surplus melanin remains after the blemishes have healed and leave it's mark on the skin.
HOW CAN I REDUCE OR REMOVE ACNE MARKS?
1. Use Brightening Creams / Oils
Apply products that have been specially formulated to fade acne marks. Be sure to choose products that are non-comedogenic to avoid a recurrence of acne.
2. Retinoids / Bakuchiol
Retinoids / Bakuchiol could help lighten hyperpigmented acne scars, including those in people with darker skin tones.
3. Laser & Light Therapy
Different light strengths, waves and pulses are used to heat up and damage pigment cells. The body breaks down the residues and pigment marks made.
WHICH JOI SKINCARE PRODUCTS ARE GOOD FOR ACNE MARKS?
It can be a real pain and struggle when the acne scars on your skin won’t leave regardless of how many WikiHow “natural home remedies” or products you’ve tried. But don't worry! We provide natural skincare products that help treat acne scars which lessen the damage caused by breakouts.
1. Bakuchiol Skin Booster (Retinol alternative)
Bakuchiol is often compared to Retinol serums. Retinol can cause sun sensitivity if applied during the day, which can include redness, burning, itching, and dryness, but Bakuchiol Serum doesn’t cause these unfortunate side effects (can be used day or night). Bakuchiol is much gentler and less irritating, making it ideal for regular, long-term use.
In addition to evening out skin tone, Bakuchiol helps lessen the appearance of dark spots—it can renew your skin cell in other ways. Bakuchiol has shown to help smooth and soften skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Prickly Pear Brightening Face Oil
Prickly Pear oil is extremely high in essential fatty acids, omega-6 and -9, and the natural antioxidant vitamin E. It is rich in amino acids, which stimulate collagen production to promote faster cell turnover. Prickly Pear Oil also contains vitamin K, which brightens under-eye dark circles and also promotes your skin’s elasticity.
These are the main benefit from Joi Prickly Pear Brightening Face Oil:
💛 Reduces the appearance of dark spots
💛 Stimulates new cell growth

3. Enzyme Glow Serum (Super-Ultra-Gentle Exfoliator + Hydration Boost)
Enzymes help to break down the keratin on the skin's upper layers, which helps it lift off dead skin and it does this in a funky way. The enzymes digest the dead skin on your face. You may have heard people talk about how pineapple gives you a tingling feeling in your mouth because it's eating you back. It's a similar principle here.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Since enzymes will only digest the dead skin cells, it won't over exfoliate your complexion like other products could. This means that anyone with sensitive skin can benefit from using one of these. In addition, they work slowly and gently, which makes them a better alternative to chemical exfoliants. It is so gentle and suitable for daily use, even the most sensitive skin can use them.
Our Enzyme Glow Serum is packed with amazing ingredients like Pineapple Enzyme, Pomegranate Enzyme, Tremella Mushroom & Hyaluronic Acid. This serum exfoliates your skin gently and boosts your skin hydration deeply providing a "glass skin" appearance.
