The treatment of acne scars can be quite expensive given the many different creams and treatments prescribed by dermatologists.
By taking advantage of a handful of effective home remedies, Indian men and women can get rid of their acne scars without spending a large amount of money on the treatment.
Here are some of the best home remedies for the treatment of acne scars on Indian skin:
- Sandalwood with rose water paste
A thick paste made by mixing some sandalwood with some rose water can be used as a face mask which can be directly applied on the affected areas.
Leave this mask on for at least an hour, after which you can wash it off with some cool water. If possible, try keeping it on overnight for optimal results. Sandalwood is especially soothing for the skin.
- Tomato slices
Tomatoes are rich in vitamin A which helps to control the excess production of sebum, which plays a major role in the development of acne.
Placing slices of tomato on your face helps to repaid scarring and also refreshes the skin.
- Lemon juice
Apply some lemon juice on your scars using some cotton. Allow the skin to absorb the nutrients from this juice before proceeding to wash it off. Lemon juice helps to improve the appearance of darker scars by lightening them significantly.
Honey is another effective natural moisturizer that helps in the treatment of such blemishes. Honey can either be used as a face mask, or applied solely on the scars.
- Olive oil
Not only does this particular oil make for a healthy diet, it also helps to improve the appearance of acne-related marks. Massage some olive oil on the blemishes daily – it helps to smoothen the scarred area(s), along with softening the skin’s texture.
Fenugreek leaves can be used to create an effective mask for reducing the scars on your skin. Boil some fenugreek seeds in water and apply this solution once it’s cooled down.
- Tomato and cucumber treatment
Using a combination of tomatoes and cucumbers is great for tightening the pores on the skin, which improves the texture significantly and improves the condition of scarred areas.
- Lavender oil
This is one essential oil that is of great help for fighting off blemishes fast. Applying it on your marks twice daily will prove to be helpful for reducing their prominence significantly.
- Egg whites
Applying some egg white on your acne scars helps in the treatment of acne scars effectively. Leave it overnight for best results. Not only is this treatment inexpensive, it’s also quite effective.
The above mentioned home remedies are effective for getting rid of scars caused by acne. The ideal way to make these acne treatments work is to be consistent in their application.
