We know this all too well: how we define ourselves goes beyond the superficial. It’s never about how we look, but sometimes it is easy to get engulfed in this filter-obsessed culture. And after our findings revealed what people struggle with mentally when it comes to their acne and acne scars, we stepped back for a little self-assessment.
Let’s be real, acne and acne scars can get us down. But remember, the “imperfections” on our skin say nothing of our character. We want to inspire women and men to reevaluate their value and be comfortable with who they are. So, in collaboration with Hiruscar, we set out to celebrate their self-confidence.
We asked eight Hiruscar Post Acne Gel users to share one word that best defines their personality — and photographed their self-affirming moment. The message is simple: tackle your insecurities, but don’t let it define you. Read on to find out what they have to say about the Hiruscar Post Acne Gel.
"I used to have random outbreaks during my teenage years, leaving acne scars and dark marks on my face. After using the Hiruscar Post Acne Gel, I'm pleasantly surprised that the dark marks around my nose area have lightened and become less noticeable. I like that this product is very soothing to the skin and it does not feel sticky after use." — Jona, @_jonabanana
“I have post acne scars that seem impossible to remove despite going for a couple of laser treatments. I recently went through a four-week trial with the Hiruscar range and I love that it’s not only quick-absorbing, non-greasy but it’s film-free too! It also does an amazing job of fading recent and some old acne scars! After using the range, I am happy to announce I have reduced the usage of makeup and concealer to cover my acne scars too.” — Sydney, @ssydneyho
"I don't really suffer from acne but I sometimes do get an occasional pimple or two during the time of the month. These pimples definitely leave a mark. I have been searching for a product that won't break me out while fading or lightening the scar. During my one-month trial with the Hiruscar Post Acne Gel, It has tremendously helped with all of the above! It has lightened my new or recent acne scars significantly and I will definitely continue to use it." — Jasmine, @yungjsmn
“Been trying this Hiruscar Post Acne Gel for more than a month and I can already see a little improvement in my acne scars! As promised, they do appear lighter after applying it two to three times every day.” — Novita, @novitalam
“Looking back, I'm truly surprised and happy at how effective and versatile the Hiruscar Post Acne Gel was. Not only did it reduce the redness surrounding the zits, it also helped promote the healing process, thus preventing the formation of scars. Furthermore, the film-free gel is also super lightweight, non-greasy and quick-absorbing, so layering makeup over is effortless. I truly am amazed by its effectiveness as evident from the big, red and swollen pimple I had on Day 1, and the significant improvement it resulted by Day 30. This is definitely a staple in my routine now!” — Ryan, @ryanraroar
"I have always been looking for a skincare product that will help with my acne scars. I used Hiruscar Post Acne Gel together with the other Hiruscar Anti-Acne products and was pleasantly surprised by the good result it produced. My skin is now much smoother and the scars are not as visible as they were before!" — Vanessa, @vanezzako
“After four weeks with the Hiruscar Post Acne Gel, the acne scars on my face are considerably lightened! I don't need heavy makeup to cover up my acne scars anymore and that's such a relief for my skin. Apart from smoothening depressed acne scars, it also prevents pimple re-occurrence and it kept my face clear of pimples.” — Kaiting, @kaitinghearts
"This product came in super handy as I was recovering from the breakouts I was suffering from due to my period. I used it diligently twice a day, every morning after I washed up and every night before bed. It really does what it promises, within four weeks, the acne scars around my chin area became less noticeable and there were no acne reoccurrences as well. Pretty glad that I managed to try out this product. I will definitely repurchase it again for sure." — Sharnie, @sharnielxin
