Acne breakouts are in itself quite irritating, but the scars that they leave behind are more frustrating. Acne scars are primarily due to the inflamed blemishes that are a result of the skin pores being filled with dirt, excess oil, dead skin and bacteria. While acne can be a temporary thing, acne scars are permanent. Hence, it is necessary to pay attention to such acne scars when one is visible.
The following are some of the tips for treating acne scars and eliminating the dark spots of your skin:
- Using Aloe Vera – For the scars to heal, your treatment needs to have soothing and moisturizing properties. Aloe vera has both these properties. Aloe vera is also natural to find. All you need to do is scrape off the aloe vera from the leaf and apply it over the scars and later cover it with plastic. Though sticky, aloe vera is fabulous for your scars and skin.
- Using Baking Soda – Baking soda helps in maintaining the pH level and is a natural exfoliator eliminating the dead skin cells. It does not affect the skin adversely around the scar and hence is a great option to use. Make a mixture out of water and baking soda, 2 parts water and one part of baking soda, apply it on the scar, leave it for a minute and then wash it. You’ll notice the changes right through.
- Using Coconut Oil – Coconut oil can fix your skin problems and your hair problems. Avid coconut users suggest it doing wonders for restoring skin’s glow. Take a pinch of oil and apply it under the eyes, bare brows and lips for a refreshing skin. Girls with oily skin should use coconut oil only on the inflamed area.
There are other natural substances like shea butter, lemon, honey, onion extract, essential oils, apple cider can also prove beneficial for treating acne scars.
Use these natural products and have your skin free of dark acne spots and get your skin glow restored.
