Having a smooth glittering and spotless face is pride of everyone. Unfortunately not many have the grace to go about with this natural beauty. Facial scars stand as a significant impediment to a smooth, spotless face. Facial scars are as a result of defective production of oil in the skin. This defect can be in the form of over-production of oil in the skin or under-production of oil. Facial blemishes occur when the skin pores are clogged with excess oil, dead cells, and bacteria. This leads to the swelling and breaking of the walls of the pores. Although our skins can naturally repair some of the damaged cells by forming new collagen fibers to regenerate dead cells or tissues. There are two types of facial scars – raised acne scars which occur when there is the overproduction of collagen by the skin and the pitted acne scars resulting from the underproduction of collagen by the skin.
