1. Tea Tree Oil
We all know that tea tree oil is great for acne.
But, only a few people know that tea tree oil is also a useful home remedy to treat acne scars and hyperpigmentation. Here is the link to research that supports the argument.
Tea tree oil has antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammation properties which help in reducing the redness of your acne scars and disinfects them.
All you have to do is:
- Apply two to three the tea tree oil to your face twice a day
- You can either apply it directly or, mix it with your moisturizer
Keep in mind that this will take some time to work! You should start seeing results after two weeks of use.
Tea tree oil can be used in combination with a number of oils to reduce acne scars. You can also use it to make your own antibacterial coconut oil cleanser and use it on a daily basis for a scar-free skin.
here is what we recommend:
2. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera has strong healing properties.
In fact, if you cut a leaf, just within a few hours, you’ll see that a protective layer has formed on it to ‘heal’ it.
These strong healing properties are useful when you want to treat your acne scars. In fact, they have been known to increase the healing of regular scabs as well as acne scars.
To use aloe vera, all you have to do is:
- Cut open the leaf to extract the gel and apply it directly to your face
- Let it sit for at least an hour
- You may also use it as a moisturizer and not wash it off
I feel that you should use a fresh aloe vera leaf instead of pre-packaged gel. These gels have preservatives and additives that may irritate your skin.
Aloe vera gel works on all types of scars. It will also help you get relief from burns, scabs, and other injuries.
You must invest in an aloe vera plant.
Here is the aloe vera gel that I have used:
Tomato isn’t just a tasty fruit you have in your salad!
It can help reduce your acne scars and hyperpigmentation is used correctly. In fact, tomato juice can work well in reducing depressed acne scars! Not just that, they also help reduce signs of aging.
Now, that’s what I call a super fruit.
You can apply tomato to your skin by:
- Peel the tomato and crush it with a fork in a container
- Apply the crushed material (including seeds) to your face
- You can also juice a tomato and apply it on your face
- Adding some cucumber will also help
- Keep this mixture on your face for 20-40 minutes and wash off
Honestly, I prefer crushed tomato over the juice because it worked for me. But, if you feel icky about the seeds, you can give the juice a try.
But, don’t buy the packaged juice as most have a small percentage of actual tomato!
You can mix cucumber and tomato juice and freeze them in an ice tray. Use it whenever needed on your acne scars without having to repeat the preparation process every time.
Of-course natural is better but in any case you want to try an effective blend try this:
