If you research on acne scars, you will find a dozen types, and that is enough to get you worried. There is the narrow and deep pitted, ice –pick scars, broad scars, depressed scars, lumpy and thick scars, and the list can go on. But a more important question is that why are you looking for scar types when you should focus on acne scar treatment.
Regardless, here are some super ingredients that will work well for acne scar removal, and can be easily found in your kitchen pantry:
- Orange Peel Powder
Just mix a teaspoon with honey and apply to affected areas. When it has dried, wash it off, and repeat every other day. The lightening properties in the orange peel reduce pigmentation and acne scars.
- Coconut Oil
Rub a teaspoon of coconut oil in your palms and massage it over your face. Leave overnight and wash first thing in the morning. The vitamin E, K and antioxidants repair and promote healthy skin tissue growth, and prevent acne lesions.
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Mix 2 tablespoons of honey with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, with a little water to dilute it. Apply using a cotton pad, and wash it off with water after 10-20 minutes. The anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce acne scarring, but you need to moisturize to prevent your skin from drying out.
- Aloe Vera
Squeeze fresh aloe Vera gel out of the leaves, apply evenly to the affected areas, and leave it overnight. Repeat this daily, since the gibberellins and polysaccharides will speed up the acne scar removal process, and the antioxidants will repair damaged skin.
