5 Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Acne Scars - Forever
At some point in life, we’ve all been plagued by untimely breakouts that take forever to leave. The only thing worse than the pimples themselves are the scars left behind by them, which can take an eternity to fade out. Either in the form of pits and pores, raised tissues or bumpy areas, scars have the dubious history of lingering on for years after the pimples have subdued. To combat this issue on a war footing, we have shortlisted all the fool-proof natural methods that help you get rid of scars for good.
For deep healing, it is of utmost importance to treat scars with something that has inherent moisturising and soothing properties. Aloe vera is blessed with amazing healing properties that can tick both these boxes. The antioxidants present work wonders in reducing redness and swelling, while the astringent properties can help in removing excess oils and dead skin cells.
The choices are plenty when it comes to essential oils, ranging from lavender, to peppermint, to tea tree oils, and you can take your pick depending on your skin type. For instance, tea tree oils are blessed with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, owing to which they are an excellent choice to treat acne scars without the worries of any side effects. Even using diluted lavender oil works wonders in reducing the tenderness around the scars to promote faster healing.
The vitamin C present in oranges is the perfect ingredient to fight pigmentation for a flawless glow. Orange peels have immense skin lightening properties that can help in reducing the appearance of acne scars. Avail its benefits by mixing a spoon of orange peel powder with turmeric and honey to fight off tan and pigmentation.
Baking soda acts a natural exfoliator and does a stellar job in maintaining the required pH levels of your skin. Opt for a paste of baking soda mixed with water, and scrub it on the affected areas to eliminate dead skin cells. This, in turn, leaves you with an even skin tone and a natural glow.
Fuller’s earth is amongst the most sacred treasures passed on to us by our grandmothers. It does an excellent job of clearing out pores and fading out the scars left behind by stubborn acne. A quick face pack of fuller’s earth mixed with rose water works on removing out the sebum that gets built under the pores on your face.
