Acne scars


If any of you have happened to be


unfortunate enough to have


suffered from acne, either now in


the present, or in the past, you’ll


know just how badly this awful


affliction can affect you, both


physically, and psychologically. It is


a condition which makes individuals


extremely self conscious about their


appearance and how they look and


can be difficult to treat and get rid


of. Even if you now happen to have


gotten rid of your acne, in some


cases, the scars left behind can be


unsightly to say the least. If you


yourself happen to suffer from acne


scarring then fear not, because in


this article we’ll take a look at five


simple, yet effective home


remedies to help you rid yourself


of any unsightly acne scarring you


may be suffering with.


Sandalwood and Rose water paste : This is especially simple as it is


literally, not surprisingly,


sandalwood and rose water,


combined together until a thick


paste has been formed. Once you


have the desired consistency,


simply apply it to the affected area,


and wait, the longer the better. If


you can tolerate it, then apply the


paste like a face mask before bed,


and leave it on overnight. This isn’t


a super quick fix, so you will be


required to apply the face mask for


a prolonged period of time, until


you notice an improvement in your



Fenugreek leaf paste : Another completely natural


treatment for acne scars is


Simply make a

paste out of ground up fenugreek


seeds and a bit of water, and apply


to your face like a face mask.


Alternatively, you can boil up some


fenugreek seeds in some water,


blend together, and apply the mix


to your face once it has cooled


down. Again leave the paste for as


long as you can tolerate, and repeat


the process as necessary.


Olive oil : This wonderful oil, derived from the


humble olive is simply fantastic for


a number of health related issues,


including the treatment of acne


scars. Massage the oil onto the


affected area daily for a number of


weeks, or even months. The oil acts


like a natural moisturizer that


softens the texture of your skin, and


makes the acne scars much less




Aloe Vera : When it comes to the treatment of


skin related disorders, few natural


remedies can top the medicinal


properties of Aloe Vera.


Commonly used as a natural


remedy to help treat scars and


wounds, it’s no wonder it’s so


effective when treating unsightly


acne scars. Simply get your hands


on some Aloe Vera juice (available


at most good health stores, or the


internet), and apply to your skin


every day if possible. By doing this


you’ll be able to drastically reduce


the level of acne scarring, and help


combat any future acne breakouts


in the future.


Lemon juice : If you happen to suffer from darker acne scars, then lemon juice is for you. Apply freshly squeezed lemon juice to the affected area, and wait until the skin has absorbed it all. Once it has indeed all been absorbed, rinse it off with cold water. Lemon juice helps combat dark acne scars and blemishes by lightening them so they’re much less obvious.
