8 Best The Ordinary Products For Acne Scars

Acne is an incredibly common skin condition. It is estimated that 80% of the population between the ages of 11 and 30 will suffer from acne, with 1 in 5 of them likely to suffer from scarring as a result. 

To combat this, The Ordinary has a wide range of affordable skincare products that are ideal to help with the appearance of acne scars – here are the 8 best ones!

1. AHA 30% And BHA 2% Peeling Solution

This is a 10-minute highly potent exfoliating solution that works wonderfully for anyone with acne scars, as the product mimics an at-home chemical peel.

2. Niacinamide 10% And Zinc 1%

Niacinamide is a hero ingredient that not only fights acne scars: it also brightens the overall appearance of your skin.

3. Alpha Arbutin 2% And HA 

This is a water-based serum that is very lightweight on the skin, designed to reduce the appearance of dark spots and even your overall skin tone, making it ideal for acne scarring.

If you're not used to exfoliants, start with this one. This toning solution is mildly exfoliating, designed to improve the clarity and glow of your skin.

4. Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

Salicylic acid is a well-known ingredient that helps fight active acne by reducing swelling, clearing pores and encouraging cellular turnover. It also balances the levels of sebum on your face, smoothing and brightening your complexion.
