The Problem: Acne Scars

Dealing with acne as an adult is really annoying. And the scars it can leave behind, caused by acne pimples and cysts, are even worse. Cystic acne can be genetic, due to stress or hormonal changes, or dairy, which has been shown to aggravate it.

The Rx: Unless you have a big budget, your best bet is to cover up your scars with heavy makeup, like Cover FX. A deep chemical peel will run you $500 and up and multiple Fraxel laser treatments are a whopping $1,500-2,000 per treatment session. If acne is still a problem, try these tips for treating it.
