Acne scars are the worst, am I right? The feeling you have is very unpleasant and I was in the same spot as you are now. Needless to say, I have tried a lot of treatments to make them go away. However, anything I’ve done didn’t work and then I turned to natural alternatives. This choice changed my life and I want to share with you some ingredients that worked wonders for me.
The scars may heal in a long time and they can really be unpleasant when they are in a visible area, such as your face with acne scars. In fact, if left untreated, they might not fully heal ever.
Of course, I am glad that you used the other recipes for treating acne and I was most happy when you told me they worked. But these natural remedies can alleviate any old or new sign of acne. They help you to complete healing the acne scars without aggressively challenge your skin with dangerous chemicals.
Lemon juice is a natural bleach rich in vitamin C, which helps rebuild collagen. Lemon juice can be diluted in water or, for added antioxidants, in green tea, then applied on scars using cotton pads.
Cocoa or Shea butter
Cocoa or Shea butter is very effective for treating scars, for nourishing the skin with essential fatty acids and contributes to water retention and elasticity. Both are used as methods of prevention and treatment of stretch marks.
Stretch marks are another problem we all women face and it is hard to deal with. I can only hope this is the solution you’ll be waiting for so long.
Taken internally, but also externally, it is recommended both for the general good health of the skin and to prevent and treat scars and signs. You can buy vitamin E oil or oil capsules. Or, you can take out the oil from the capsules and you can apply directly on the scar. You just have to make sure you choose a quality product from a reliable manufacturer.
Aloe vera not only moisturizes and soothes the acne scars, but it also has the effect of regenerating damaged tissues, accelerating the healing process. Try growing your own aloe vera plant and use the gel inside the leaves.
This is the most useful natural ingredient I have ever used. It is amazing for acne scars but also for every other visible wound. It is a magical potion for me, how about you try it yourself?
Raw honey is great for the skin, can be used to treat acne, eczema, and scars! Like lemon juice, the application of honey on acne scars opens them and makes them not be so visible.
Here is the recipe I have used so far and with which I finally got rid of acne scars:
For best results, mix these ingredients and make your own natural cream to remove acne scars: lemon juice, cocoa and Shea butter and vitamin E. Mix two cups of Shea butter, 3-5 vitamin E capsules, and 2-3 tablespoons of lemon juice in a glass bowl. Mix ingredients with electric mixer until you get a creamy consistency. Apply the mixture twice or whenever necessary. The cream can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep it fresh.
