What’s worse than acne itself? Acne scars. After going through the pain and misery of acne why must we carry the scars. Now here is the good news, there are a lot of ways to get rid of acne scars. We will discuss some really basic home remedies that can help you get rid of these stubborn acne scars.

Grounded Coffee

Grounded coffee has multiple benefits for your skin. Coffee not only acts as an exfoliator, but the caffeine in it helps reduce cellulite, inflammation and redness. The anti inflammatory properties of coffee also help reduce the puffiness under our eyes.

Now to fight acne scars using coffee, all you need is grounded coffee mixed with a table spoon of extra virgin olive oil or honey depending on your skin type.

Once you have the mixture ready, exfoliate your skin, going in circular motions and rinse it off with lukewarm water. Repeat this process twice a week and you will see a big difference.

Lemon

Lemon juice has natural skin bleaching properties which is why it helps lighten the skin and most especially the stubborn acne marks.

We would advise you use lemon juice just for the spots rather than applying it to your entire face.

Take one lemon and dilute it in a tablespoon of water – this is important because lemon on its own can sometimes be too strong. Dab a Q-Tip in this mixture and apply it just on the spots. You can repeat this process every night before going to bed and within a week there will be noticeable difference.

Honey

Honey is used not only to treat acne scars, but also acne itself. Honey is known to be very gentle on the skin and highly beneficial due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Honey can also be used as a moisturizer.

Just dab a little bit of honey on your acne marks using a cotton swab, leave it on for about 15-20 minutes and wash it off.

Potato and Lemon

The key ingredients for this home remedy are potatoes and lemons which can be found in your kitchen, so please do try this remedy out.

All you require is:

1/2 table spoon potato juice

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Apply this mixture on your face using a clean cotton swab and let it absorb into your skin. You can use this mixture every alternate day. In case you notice any redness or reaction, it may be due to the lemon so just simply dilute this mixture with a little bit of water. This remedy works wonders on acne scars.

For all the treatments mentioned above, mix ingredients together and apply to clean, dry skin using clean cotton swabs. Let it dry and rinse off with lukewarm water. Don’t forget to moisturize after using any of these treatments. Good Luck!
