There has been an increasing interest in finding natural methods to get rid of acne scars and marks. Fortunately, there are natural home remedies that can help you eliminate blemishes left by acne.
The bright side behind natural home remedies for acne blemishes is that you will not have to purchase expensive products and most of the ingredients are readily available in your kitchen. Home remedies, however, do have a downside, especially the time it takes to notice the effects and the variation of the results from person to person. But, be patient and consistent with any natural home remedy.
Natural Acne Scar Removal
Before you try any natural home remedy for acne scars and marks, it is recommendable to wash your face using warm water. Don’t forget to test the product on a small patch of skin to make sure it doesn’t produce irritation or an allergic reaction. Also remember that all of the following remedies can be diluted with water to produce a gentler mixture.
Garlic is considered a wonder food for its many health properties. It has also been used in the treatment of acne scars and marks left by pimples. If you choose to use garlic, though, take care to rinse it off immediately if you feel a burning sensation.
For this natural remedy, grate a clove of garlic and add two tablespoons of water to form a paste. Apply the paste directly to the area and massage carefully. The garlic exfoliates the skin and removes a layer of scar tissue, so don’t let it set for more than 5 minutes.
Because of the garlic’s irritating properties, always apply aloe vera directly to the affected area right after you have rinsed off the paste. The aloe vera will hydrate your skin and provide protection without further irritation.
Lemons and Tomatoes
Both lemons and tomatoes contain high amounts of citric acid which has been shown to have excellent cleansing and rejuvenating properties. For years, they have been used in natural skin treatments. Due to their high Vitamin A content, tomatoes in particular reduce the production of sebum.
If you choose lemon juice, simply squeeze one tablespoon of juice. Simply apply the lemon juice with a cotton ball to your skin before bedtime. Rinse it off after ten minutes and use a mild cleanser.
Apply the tomato juice the same way you would apply the lemon juice. Rinse after 10 minutes.
It always pays to use fresh natural products instead of the canned versions. The canned versions can contain additives that might produce side effects and reduce the full effect of the natural components.
We have mentioned some natural and inexpensive ways to deal with acne scarring, but there are others. Remember that the results from natural scar treatment can differ greatly from person to person. With a little patience you will se how your mild acne scars and blemishes will disappear with natural home remedies.
