But people who do not afford and who do not like to have any surgical treatment look for ways that do not have any side effects. While treating acne can be expensive, depending on the method you choose, acne scar treatments can be even more expensive and occasionally even discomforting or painful.
Natural home remedies are one of the many ways to get rid of the marks left by acne. Kitchen items are the cheapest and effective ingredients used to remove acne scars and marks.
Acne Scar Remedy 1: Lemons
Lemon juice is very effective in lightening the dark spots caused by acne or pimples. First, cleanse the scar with water. Dab one teaspoon of lemon juice into a cotton ball and smooth it over the acne marks. Leave for ten minutes, then rinse. Use caution with lemon juice because it can make your skin photosensitive. So be certain to use a sunscreen on any area you treat with lemon juice prior to going out into the sun.
Acne Scar Remedy 2: Soda
Baking soda is a very good exfoliant. It gently exfoliates your skin and leaves it smooth and silky. A version of Baking soda is used in the microdermabrasion treatment. Therefore you can also give yourself a homemade microdermabrasion treatment by mixing one teaspoon of baking soda with the two teaspoons of filtered water. Then gently rub the mixture on your acne scar for sixty seconds then rinse it off.
Acne Scar Remedy 3: Olives
After exfoliating your skin with baking soda, massage a pea-sized amount of olive oil onto your face. Acne scaring can cause the skin to lose its elasticity and suppleness. The moisturizing nutrients in the olive oil will penetrate the skin to deeply moisturize the skin and soften the skin’s texture.
