How To Get Rid Of Acne Scars Naturally With Home Remedies?

Having acne is embarrassing, and the scars acne often left behind as parting gift are even more undesirable and disgusting. The good news is that you can get rid of acne scars using certain acne scars home remedies.

Home Remedies For Acne Scars

1. Fresh Lemon or Lime Juice: Lemon juice is known for having natural skin bleaching properties and so helps in lightening the color of scars. Lime juice also contains citric acid, so you can use it instead of lemon juice.
(i) Mix lemon or lime juice juice with water in equal proportions (Acne Spot Treatment): Apply this solution directly onto your scars, avoiding the surrounding skin. The citric acid in lemon can dry your skin, so moisturize immediately after washing off the juice.
(ii) Lemon juice and Glycerin Face Mask: Combine one part of freshly squeezed lemon juice and two parts glycerin. Use this as a face mask once or twice a week.
2. How to remove acne scars with baking soda: Baking soda is one of the natural remedies for acne scar. Combine one teaspoon of baking soda and two teaspoons of water to form a paste. Exfoliate your face skin by applying this paste all over your face. Rub this as a facial scrub into the skin in gentle circular motions for two minutes. While scrubbing keep focus on the scarred areas. Wash it off your face, pat dry and moisturize your skin.
You can also go for baking soda acne spot treatment. Apply baking soda paste directly onto the acne scars and allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse it off.
3. How to fade acne scars with honey: Honey has antibacterial properties, so it helps to soothe the skin and diminish inflammation. It’s a natural remedy to clear pimples and reduce the red marks left behind. Take a few drops pure organic honey and dab it directly onto the scarred areas with the help of a g-tip.
Honey is an effective remedy for those having sensitive skin. It’s non-irritating and does not dry out your skin, unlike lemon juice, baking soda and other treatments. Rather it acts as a moisturizer.
4. How to reduce acne scars with Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera juice is a natural soothing agent that can be applied to ease many skin conditions, including burns, wounds and acne scars. Aloe Vera helps to moisturize and renew skin, pushing scars to go away. Although you can buy Aloe Vera products from your local drug store, but the best would be to buy Aloe Vera plant or leaves and squeeze out fresh juice from it at your home. You can use this juice as an acne spot treatment by applying it directly on the scarred areas.
For a more powerful treatment, mix a couple of tree oil drops into Aloe Vera juice and then apply it gently over acne scars. But if you are having sensitive skin and tree-oil does not suit your skin, then avoid adding tree oil into the aloe-vera juice.
5. How to clear acne scars with Vinegar: Vinegar works like a mild chemical peel and helps in removing acne scars. It removes the top layer of your skin and accelerates the process of replacing the old skin cells with new cells.
You can use the apple cider vinegar to clear acne scars and red marks. But make it sure to dilute the vinegar strength to its half by mixing water with it. Dab this diluted vinegar daily over the scarred area with the help of a cotton ball until the acne scars fade away.
6. How to remove acne scars with raw potato: You can make face mask by grating raw potato and applying it over your face twice a week. Rub the grated potato on the affected skin areas, let it dry and then rinse off your face with water.
