Acne is certainly identical to an evil spirit, which leaves behind its horrors. On dispelling of acne, your face still does not become blemish free. The next main concern remains of acne scars. These are hard to vanish. They engrave themselves deep within the skin and their roots are hard to chisel. This is the reason why it takes hell lot of time for them to recover on their own. Acne and its scars do not exist simply on skin surface but are embedded multiple layers within. So, the healing process needs external help for quick recovery. This article would guide you through different natural methods to lighten acne scars. These methods would incorporate easy to find products that are readily available in your kitchen.
1.) LEMON, HONEY AND TURMERIC PASTE:-
Squeeze out juice of half a lemon and add a pinch of turmeric to it. Remember, do not add too much of turmeric because it will make your face look yellow. Now, add 1 tsp of honey if you have dry skin. For oily or combination skin ladies, they can add ¾th of a tsp of honey. Mix all the three to form a paste. Apply it directly with fingers (freshly washed). Keep it for 20 to 30 minutes.
Lemon has lightening properties. It contains natural bleach; hence it would help in lightening scars. Honey has antiseptic properties, plus it would add hydration to nullify the dryness that would be caused by usage of lemon. Lastly, turmeric is beneficial for healing properties.
2.) OLIVE OIL/ COCONUT OIL/ PURE ALMOND OIL:-
Oils have been used since ancient times for their multiple benefits. Not only are they good for moisturization, but they also help in lightening scars or skin.
For lightening acne scars, you can use either Coconut oil or Olive oil or Almond oil, dip a cotton ball into one of the above mentioned oil and apply it on your face before you go to sleep. Remember to wash your face first and then use this method. No method is going to work with unwashed face. You can alternate between these oils to gain maximum benefit. Your cotton ball shouldn’t be dripping with oil but just lightly dipped, enough to apply thin layer. After application, rub your fingers on your face to give it warmth so that the oils are easily absorbed. Keep it over night and wash it normally with face wash or whatever you use.
Always use pure oils rather than diluted ones.
(BRANDS THAT CAN BE USED- Parachute Coconut oil, Figaro Olive oil and Roghan Badam Oil)
3.) POTATO JUICE:-
Take a potato, peel away its skin and then grate it. Collect the grated potato and scrunch it to collect its juice. Add a few drops of lemon (optional) so that potato juice does not change its colour. Dip a cotton ball and apply it on your face. Since, this is completely natural and has no chemicals; you can keep it overnight for maximum benefits.
P.S. the same can be used for treating dark circles, but do skip on the lemon juice.
