Home Remedies For Acne Scars

Before you start using potentially harmful drugs, I'd like to recommend that you check out the Acne No More downloadable book with videos: it's a holistic system that works even with stubborn cysts.

If you are not keen on the more invasive treatment procedures such as chemical peels, dermabrasion or subcision, then you could look at how to get rid of acne scars by using home remedies. These may not be as effective for particular types of scars, but can certainly help to reduce shallow scarring and improve the look of the skin.

I’ve found some interesting home remedies that may be well worth giving a try.

Apply Active Manuka Honey To The Skin

Active Manuka honey comes from New Zealand and has been recently touted as a miracle treatment for wounds. It contains amino acids, vitamins and sugars which help to reduce scarring and create a protective barrier over the freshly growing tissue.

To apply the manuka honey, put one to two teaspoons on sterile gauze, place the gauze over the scar and hold in place with skin tape to avoid any leakage. You should change the dressing every twelve hours, making sure to wash the affected area gently with warm water before you do so. Try this daily for three weeks and you’ll start to see a difference.

Squeeze The Juice Out Of Fresh Lemons

The simple lemon has long been used to lighten skin. It’s also a great way to get rid of acne scars. Lemon juice contains acid which stimulates the growth of new cells and causes them look lighter. Try dabbing the lemon juice on your scars using a cotton wool ball and let your skin soak it up before washing it off. Do this everyday until you start seeing results.

Breathe In The Aroma!

Lavender and rosehip seed oils not only have beautiful aromas, but are extremely valuable in treating skin complaints. Lavender oil is often used to treat burns, wounds and scars, whilst rosehip oil is high in essential fatty acids which are known to reduce scar tissue. Mix ten drops of lavender oil into 25mil of rosehip seed oil, mix well and massage into the affected areas twice a day.

Don’t Just Use Olive Oil In Cooking, Put It On Your Skin

Olive oil is rich in omega oils and vitamins which is why it’is recommended as part of a healthy diet. Did you know that olive oil is great for the skin? It has a moisturizing quality that softens the texture of the skin and reduces the visibility of acne scars. Massage a small amount of oil into the skin every day. Be sure to purchase good quality olive oil and to keep it in the fridge. The best quality oil to use is organic cold- pressed extra-virgin olive oil.

Put Some Salad On Your Face

An interesting home remedy is made by pulping down tomatoes and cucumber into a paste like consistency. Then, you can use the paste as a face mask. Tomatoes are rich in vitamin A which is an antioxidant which helps to refresh and renew scarred and damaged skin. Cucumber is said to sooth inflammation, refresh the skin and heal acne scars.

A Delicious Face Mask

Another home remedy that can be used as a face mask is made by mixing one tablespoon of sour cream, one tablespoon of yogurt, one tablespoon of oatmeal and a few drops of lemon juice together. Pat the mixture onto acne scars, leave on for ten minutes, and then rinse off. Oatmeal has a number of skin healing and soothing properties which can improve the appearance of acne scars.

Hello Vera!

Finally, aloe vera gel has been found to have many therapeutic properties that are very effective in treating acne scars. If you have an aloe plant, then cut off the tip and apply the pulp directly to the affected area and let the skin absorb it. If you do not have an aloe plant, then aloe vera gel can be bought in most drug or health food stores.

These are just a few suggested home remedies on how to get rid of acne scars. If you would like to know about the system I recommend then check out the Acne No More website.
