But it is persistent enough to be annoying.The zits are omnipresent as if sharing some secret pact to not disappear without another taking their place.

ask mGm – severe acne scarring

Hello lovely readers and welcome to the ask mGm section where you can send us questions and we and other readers will do our best to answer them. Here is our first!

My problem however is with the scars…ice-pick, rolling, whatever…and huge pores.

I don’t see much improvement…you have any products or treatments that you might think would benefit me? Thank you!

Thanks for the question BadSkinBeauty. Here is our answer.
