How to Make Acne Scars Go Away

Discover how to make acne scars go away using natural remedies

Do you ever wonder if you can get acne scars to fade away? It all depends on how severe the acne is in the first place as well as the type of scar involved.

The truth is severe or extensive acne scarring will not fade away without treatment of some kind. There are many options available including laser treatments and bleaching creams and gels. One common method used is microdermabrasion.
But have you consider home and natural remedies at all? Some of them are helpful in making acne scars fade away and appear less noticeable. Of course, natural remedies take longer to work so do not expect quick results.
Wash your face properly to remove dirt and excess oil but avoid washing your face too frequently as it can dry the skin out too much (twice daily is usually enough). This in turn causes your skin to respond by making even more oil.

Lemon Juice Home Remedy

Lemon juice is a very popular choice. Squeeze the juice from a lemon and mix it with 250 mL (1 cup) of lukewarm water. Gently apply the mixture to the scarred areas and leave it on for several minutes. Do this daily. Lemon juice will slowly fade the scar over time and make it less visible.

Baking Soda Home Remedy

Baking soda makes for a fine scrub. It’s very similar to a microdermabrasion treatment, except you can do this at home and it is way cheaper! Mix about 30 g (1 ounce) of baking soda with just enough water to make it into a somewhat thick paste.

Then gently rub this paste in circular motion for 1 minute on the acne scars. Rinse off the face with lukewarm water. This treatment exfoliates the dead skin cells on the surface and helps to make acne and acne scars go away.

Olive Oil

Olive oil seems to have chemical properties that can help fade scars and rejuvenate the skin. Apply a small amount of this oil once or twice daily to help diminish acne scar marks.

Calamine Lotion

This lotion is best known for use when a person suffers from chickenpox. However, it can also help to fade the red acne marks and cut down on skin discolorations. Apply the lotion using a cotton-tip swap directly on the acne scars just before you go to bed. Rinse off gently the next morning.

Vitamin E

Apply a small amount of vitamin E using a cotton-tip swab once or twice daily. Vitamin E adds moisture to the skin and can reduce the appearance of acne scars.
