How to Heal Acne Scars
After finally getting rid of acne and when you thought you were through it, all of a sudden, you have to face another challenge: healing acne scars. The healing process is not easy and sometimes it takes weeks and even months to completely heal the scars. We hope this little article will help you deal with acne scars more easily.
First of all, to avoid acne scars we have to avoid getting acne lesions. To do this, the first step is keeping our skin clean and clear. So our first advice will be taking care of the acne wound as carefully as possible (gently exfoliate to get rid of the dead skin cells).
Mask with Lemon Juice: Apply the mixture of the juice of one lemon with one cup of water to your skin by using a washcloth (never rub the washcloth roughly). Let the mask stay on for 5 minutes, wash your face gently.
Mask with Baking Soda: Baking soda is another one of those things which seem to cure everything! Make a paste with one tablespoon of baking soda and a small amount of water and smear it to the blemished area. Let the mask sit for 15 minutes and then rinse it off.
Mask with Natural Oils: Take equal amounts of vitamin E oil, rosehip seed oil, squalane oil and honey. Beat the mixture together, apply it to face and leave it on for 15 minutes.
There are also clinical methods to fight against acne scars, but make sure you consult a doctor before trying them. The clinical treatments include prescription-grade topical treatments, taking accutane in the severe cases of acne, having microdroplet silicone injections and fraxel laser resurfacing.
It is important to start treating your acne as soon as it arrives, because the longer you have the acne, the longer it will take to get rid of acne marks and scars.
