The Deciem Takeover

On July 8th, 2020, we had the pleasure of Deciem answering everyone´s questions in The Ordinary & Deciem Chat Room, and scars from acne were a very common topic. Here are the results from Deciem Q&A in the Facebook Group.

The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension For Acne Scarring

The Ordinary for acne scarring

Deciem says: A great place to start for acne-scarring is The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%, which is a multifunctional brightening direct acid formula that visibly targets uneven tone and textural irregularities and the look of blemishes. You can apply this in the morning and evening after your water-based products and before heavy creams. There are conflicts with this, meaning products you should not use in the same routine.

NIOD ELAN Ethylated Ascorbic Acid Network 30% For Acne Scarring.

Acne Scarring NIOD

Deciem says: We would also recommend exploring NIOD Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid 30% Network (ELAN) which is a highly concentrated serum that combines a 30% concentration of highly-stable Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) in an antioxidant network of Superoxide Dismutase, Selenium and Zinc to support a strong fight against oxidation and to visibly target uneven skin tone, dullness, and signs of ageing. 

ELAN is best used in the evening either directly after cleansing or after water-based solutions and before heavy creams. It is best used in the evening.

The Ordinary Aloe 2% + NAG 2%

The Ordinary Aloe 2% + NAG 2%

Since the Q&A, The Ordinary launched Aloe 2% + NAG 2% which is a smoothing solution specifically for post-acne marks. It also targets the look of redness, textural irregularities and uneven skin tone. This is a water-based serum and can be used in the morning and evening directly after cleansing.
