Acne scars are without any doubt a little more stubborn than the acne itself and are difficult to get rid of. Acne, be it teenage acne or adult acne, can be easily treated using any product with anti-bacterial or anti-inflammatory properties. But acne scars develop hard tissues and do not go away that easily.
With advancements in aesthetic medicine, researchers have found numerous cosmetic procedures to help treat stubborn acne scars. These procedures are no doubt very effective and deliver instant results, but they are quite expensive and not everybody can afford them. If you are also living with a tight budget and cannot afford an expensive Scar Removal Treatment then don’t worry, we will share with you some tried and tested natural scar removing techniques that people have been using effectively since ancient times.
Apply Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a wonder herb known for its anti-inflammatory properties. When applied to an acne scar, it boosts the healing process to help regenerate damaged skin. Initially it may cause redness of the scar but over time you will notice significant fading of the scar. Using fresh gel directly from the aloe vera leaf is ideal as compared to using over-the-counter-products containing aloe vera extract. Take an aloe vera leaf, wash it thoroughly and then peel its spiny green cover to get the gel inside. Apply this gel on your scars and leave it on for 25 to 30 minutes before washing your face with water. Apply aloe vera gel twice a day for maximum benefit. This will not only cause the acne scars to fade away but your skin will also become firm, smooth and glowing.
Olive oil gives your skincare regimen a much-needed boost, especially during dry, chilly winters. Its texture is closer to your skin’s natural oil’s texture and therefore works in a natural way, causing excessive oiling or clogging of pores. Olive oil is rich in Vitamins A, B (B1 and B2), C, D, and E as well as iron and antioxidants, which are essential to keep your skin soft, smooth, supple and glowing. Its anti-inflammatory properties also help remove acne scars. Apply a little olive oil on your face at night and massage it gently in small circular motions, focusing more on the scars. Massage for 5 to 7 minutes or until you feel that the oil has been absorbed by the skin. Then steam your face for 3 to 5 minutes using a clean towel draped into the warm water. Then wash your face with normal water.
Try these natural remedies at home and enjoy smooth and clear skin free of acne scars. You can also use these remedies to fade burn scars or those caused by injury, trauma or a cut. Furthermore, these natural treatments can be used for improving the appearance of mild to moderate surgical scars; however, they may not work on raised, lumpy surgical scars.
The only downside of these DIY all green scar removal techniques is that they need a lot of time and patience to deliver. You need to wait for at least 6 to 8 weeks to notice any improvement in the appearance of scars. If you are seeking an instant solution you can always opt for a scar removing cosmetic procedure, such as Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peeling or Laser scar revision.
