How to Get Rid of Acne Scars
Getting acne under control is tough, so when you finally crack your skins magic code it’s really something to be celebrated. But what about the scarring that’s left behind? Nobody wants their new-found clear skin to be bothered by ghosts of pimples past, so we’re here to help. We’ve rounded up our favorite natural home remedies for fading and reducing the look of acne scars. What’s great is that you probably already have all of these things in your kitchen making this completely low effort. We should note though, that if you have severe scarring you should consult a dermatologist – the home remedies may not be enough to do the trick. And now without further ado, how to get rid of those damn acne scars:
Apple Cider Vinegar
Reducing the look of scars is just one of the many amazing things apple cider vinegar can do for your skin. Try mixing it with honey and leaving it on the affected area for about 10 minutes before washing off with warm water.
Another holy grail skin product that also helps with fading acne scars is coconut oil. It’s rich in fatty acids that will help moisturize the affected area, which will help to restore your skin’s glow. Be careful with your usage, though! Sometimes applying coconut oil to the full face can actually cause breakouts, so start out by applying to your scars only.
You probably knew that lemon was going to appear on this list. It’s widely known as a natural bleach, making it a really great option to help tone down the look of scars.
That plant in your windowsill is good for more than looking cute! Aloe vera contains such great moisturizing and soothing qualities, making a great way to combat scarring. The antioxidants in aloe vera also help to reduce swelling and redness, so yeah, it’s great.
If you pair any of the above treatments with a daily application of Vitamin C Serum you will be well on your way to getting rid od those pesky acne scars. Do you have any scar-clearing methods you swear by? Hit us up on social media and let us know!
