Acne can be a real pain, but acne scars can be even worse because they tend to last a lot longer than the initial break-out. Scars can stay on your face for months or even years. Severe pitted scars can also stay on your face for a life time. Thankfully, there are natural homemade treatments for acne scars. These treatments are intended for flat red acne scars. If you have pitted acne scars there may be some hope. Talk to your dermatologist about laser and skin resurfacing treatments for pits in your skin.
Wash your face with a mild cleanser. Be gentle on your skin and pat dry with a soft towel.
Juice two lemons in a juicer and apply the mixture to your skin. You can use all the juice or save some for next time.
Heat 1/2 cup of raw honey in the microwave for 10 seconds and then let the mixture cool down. Raw honey is beneficial because it is loaded with enzymes and other nutrients to feed skin and speed the healing process.
Add 3 tbsp. of milk and 1 tbsp. of aloe vera gel to the bowl of raw honey and mix. Add 1 tbsp. of Vitamin E oil and continue mixing.
Apply a thin layer of this nourishing mask to your face and repeat each night to fade acne scars. You can then follow up with the treatment once per week as it is very nourishing and hydrating for your skin.
