Home Remedies For Acne Scars

Acne marks will generally fade away over time. However, if you cannot stand the wait, use the following home remedies for acne scars:

  • Vit E Oils

    Apply any Vitamin E enriched oil like Almond oil, Olive oil or Lavender oil over the marks 10 minutes before bath everyday. You can also open a Vitamin E capsule and apply the oil on the affected area

  • Ayurveda Oils

    Gently rub 5 drops of Kumkumadi taila (ayurvedic oil) on to your face for 5 minutes, once daily. Wash off with warm water.

  • Lemon Juice

    Apply lime/lemon juice on the affected areas at bedtime. Dilute with water if you find the acetic acid stinging. Wash off with cold water in the morning.

  • Baking Soda

    Mix baking soda with water to use as a natural scrub. Keep it on the skin for 10 minutes and wash off with cold water.

  • Honey

    Honey is good for people with sensitive clean. Raw or Manuka honey is the best. Just dab some honey on the affected area and wash off after a few minutes.

  • Aloe Vera

    Use the sap from an aloe-vera plant to apply on the affected area overnight.

  • Sandalwood Paste

    Mix sandalwood paste with coconut milk or honey and apply on the skin for 30 minutes and wash off with cold water.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar

    Dab diluted apple cider vinegar with cotton balls on the affected areas and wash off after a few minutes with cold water.

  • Tomato

    Crush a tomato and apply it on your face. Wash off with plain lukewarm water after 20 minutes

  • Fenugreek

    Take 1 tsp of fenugreek seeds and boil it in a cup (250 ml) of water for 10-15 minutes. Cool the solution and strain the water. Apply the water on the scars. Do not rinse it out.

  • Neem

    Crush a fresh leaf and apply it on scars for 30 minutes before rinsing it off with water.

  • Oatmeal

    You can use sugar or oatmeal mixed with rose water to form abrasive scrubs to exfoliate skin. Don’t be too harsh, rub it on the skin for 2-3 minutes before washing it off with cold water. Follow up with a gentle cream or coconut/almond oil.

  • Vit C Rich Foods

    Eat foods high in Vitamin C like oranges, tangerines, chili peppers, guavas, bell peppers, dark leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, kiwis, papayas and strawberries.

  • Vit E Rich Foods

    Eating foods high in Vitamin E repairs your skin from within. Sunflower seeds, almonds, pine nuts, paprika, red chili powder, peanuts, basil, oregano, dried apricots, spinach, and cooked taro root are rich sources.

Also eat foods that are good for your skin...colorful vegetables and fruits...berries and of course water. Birch bark tea from Betula lenta, black or sweet birch, and Lindera benzoin, spice bush, bark tea. Never damage the bark on the trunk of a tree...gather small branches.

Avoiding red meat and pork, mushrooms/ fungi, and no yeast. I also avoid gluten. These all feed yeast/ Candida albicans and this creates a fertile breeding ground along with an acidic ph balance...avoid highly acidic foods...also chicken breast is the only alkaline meat if you still eat meat. I have found burdock leaves ( foraged = free!) mixed in the blender with water works miracles for the skin. Works better than applying bentonite clay and also better than baking soda. Find some burdock burs and spread the seeds around your yard you'll have leaves in no time. Ground the seeds into the dirt al little. \U0001f60a\U0001f64f

These are some nice natural remedies. However, what made the difference for me was CHANGING my whole approach to acne because of a product I found on theacnefix.com and it cleared up within a week!. It was embarrassing as an adult to still deal with acne, so glad it's gone.

Microdermabrasion isn't something you can do yourself but it really works if you have the extra money to spend. Smooths out the top layer of your skin, takes away discoloration, and encourages collagen growth. I had treatments over 10 years ago and I still see the improved effects.

I used to suffer from really bad acne,mine was mostly hormonal I also had oily skin always after a lot of searching I found a remedy that I've read a lot of people had success with curing their acne, applied the steps and it works by naturally shrinking your sebaceous glands in your skin, about 3 weeks into the guide my acne cleared up and I never had acne since I will share below, hope this helps
