Deep acne scars are usually due to improper skin care, sun exposure, hormonal imbalance, poor diet, aging and genetics. If you are confronted with acne scars, you should try some of the following home remedies which will reduce the marks and the deep pits.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) – this common product is full of alpha hydroxy acids that will balance your pH level, unclog your pores and reduce the excess oils that produce the acne breakouts. Take 1 part ACV and mix it with 3 parts water (you can add more water if you find it too strong). Apply on the skin with a cotton ball and allow it to act for about 15 minutes before washing off.
Repeat two or three times per day.
Fenugreek Seeds – their antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties will leave your skin acne free and help it heal quicker. Take some water, add the fenugreek seeds and let the water simmer for up to 15 minutes. Let the solution cool, drain the water and then apply with a cotton swab on the skin. Repeat on a regular basis and you should see reduction in the scars’ appearance.
Fuller’s Earth – it acts as exfoliator and removes dead skin cells, leaving your skin blemish free. Take 2 tsp. fuller’s earth and mix them with 1 tsp. sandalwood and 1 tsp. tomato juice until you get a fine paste. Apply an even layer and let it act for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
5. Lemon – the acid inside the lemon is known to lighten the skin and thus reduce scar visibility and freckles. Squeeze the juice from a fresh lemon and apply it with a cotton swab on the skin. Let it act for about 10 minutes and then rinse with water. Repeat it once every day for about three weeks and you should be able to see results.
6.Vitamin E – this is a great moisturizer for your skin. Break a capsule and apply the oil on the skin every night before bedtime.
