Remember a few weeks ago when I posted about how bad of acne I was having? Well turns out, I have been using St.Ives Apricot Face Scrub, and it is working a little bit better then Papa's Sulfur Soap (which I was using). But I have noticed I have a few faint acne scars. So I looked up some natural ways to get rid of these little scars of mine. I actually came across a great site for Natural Remedies.
If you too, have a few faint scars, you can try these natural remedies with me!
I am going to try the face mask tonight. Ohhh boy, I can't wait!
1. Lemon Juice
To get rid of blemished and dark acne scars squeeze some juice out of lemons or limes. Apply the juice on your acne scars with a cotton ball. Leave this on your face for 10-15 minutes and rinse off with water.
Renew your skin by slicing up a tomato and placing it over you acne scars. This works to heal damaged skin because tomatoes contain lots of vitamin A and antioxidants.
3. Olive Oil
Moisturize your skin and fade away acne scars by massaging olive oil on your acne scars.
A quick way to reduce the appearance of acne scars is by rubbing an ice cube on your acne scars. This will soothe irritated skin, tighten pores and give your skin an even texture.
6. Sandalwood and Rosewater
Mix some sandalwood and a couple of drops of rosewater until it forms a past. Use this as a facial mask and leave it on overnight. Wash off completely in the morning. You will notice smoother skin because sandalwood helps cool and sooth your skin.
And you can always try a Natural Face Mask
A great face mask that you can make at home to get rid of acne scars is:
- 1 tablespoon sour cream
- 1 tablespoon yogurt
- 1 tablespoon oatmeal
- A couple of drops of lemon juice
Mix all of these together and place the mask on your acne scars or entire face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then wash off.
