Imperfections affect the appearance of skin, which can cause low self-esteem and feelings of self-consciousness. Skin discoloration is a difference in skin tone caused by aging, overexposure to the sun, antibiotics or hereditary factors. Scars are patches that form on the skin due to cuts, severe acne or injuries. Fortunately, home remedies can remove skin discoloration and scars; however, home remedies may not cure skin imperfections due to skin diseases.

Apply yogurt to your skin to remove dead skin cells and discoloration. Once the yogurt dries, gently scrub it off of your skin with a damp washcloth. You must do this every day to see results.

Mix sandalwood paste and rose water together in a bowl with a spoon. Apply the mixture to your scars before bed, and wash the mixture off with water the next morning. Do this every night for several weeks to see results.

Apply honey to the scars several times each day, if you do not see results from the sandalwood and rose water mixture after three months. Rub the honey directly onto the scars, and wash the honey off with water. Apply the honey to your scars for several weeks.
