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

  • 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.
