How To Remove Acne Scars Naturally | Acne Scars Home Treatment – To get rid of pimples and acne scars, we need a healthy skin care routine as well as a clean diet.
Apple Cider Vinegar | Fenugreek Seeds | Neem | Turmeric | Clay | Orange Peel Powder | Manjistha sticks | Licorice sticks| Red Sandalwood
I make my own batch of ingredients as much as possible to ensure the best quality. Or, I buy the raw ingredients, wash and dry them in the sun shade before grinding them to a fine powder.
The ingredients that i have mentioned above are “raw ingredients” and not in their powdered form.
Detoxify Your Body And Balance Doshas
As per Ayurveda, When there is an imbalance of a certain dosha, it shows on the skin too as inflammation, dryness or acne. So, the first step is to detoxify your body to flush out all the toxins and purify your blood.
Include lots of seasonal fruits in your diet.
Eat leafy green vegetables.
Sip on lemon water or green tea or both throughout the day.
Hydrate your body with 8-12 glasses of water.
Avoid sugar and dairy products as much as you can.
Avoid unhealthy junk foods and substitute them with nuts.
Get 30 minutes of exercise a day.
It could be anything from brisk walking, climbing stairs, dancing, workout videos or yoga.
Exercise helps with blood circulation and eliminating toxins from the body. This really helps to keep you healthy, glowing and energetic.
Sleep on time and for 7-8 hours.
A good sleep allows cell repair and regeneration which is essential for our body to be healthy.
It also helps keep you active and energetic with clear thinking, not cranky and stressful.
In case home remedies does not give you the desired result in three months time or if you are getting married soon and need guaranteed results in a short time, Consult a dermatologist.
By a “short time”, i mean 3-6 months at least.
A good dermatologist will put you on medications to cure the active acne. Later, you can opt for other treatments to clear the acne scars completely.
Chemical peels, micro needling, dermabrasion and laser resurfacing are proven treatments that give visible results within the time frame.
Depending on the type of scar, You may need multiple in-office sessions.
After correcting your diet and lifestyle, it is time to set up a skin care routine that suits the needs of your skin. If you want to know how to remove acne scars naturally, you need to avoid doing these first.
Do not over exfoliate.
Over washing and exfoliating will ruin the outer defence layer of the skin. It may seem like helping but it really isn’t.
Do not touch your face.
Your palms do sweat a lot and they also contain many bacteria so, do not transfer these microbes to your face and cause infections yourselves.
Do not pick or pop active pimples
Resist the urge to pop or even touch the area to avoid the infection from spreading. Picking on pimples will do nothing but cause scarring.
MUST- FOLLOW Skin Care Regimen
- Serum (BHA at night time only)
- Sunscreen (Oil free)
Night time routine, Do not forget to double cleanse and remove your makeup completely.
Once a week, Try a gentle At-home chemical peel like Lactic acid peel. Later, you can move to a stronger peel like salicylic acid peels.
Exfoliate once a week with gentle non abrasive scrubs.
HOW TO REMOVE ACNE SCARS NATURALLY
The below remedies have proven ingredients to treat and prevent new pimples while also fading acne scars.
Be consistent when using home remedies as they are kind of slow in slowing visible results.
Let us discuss one of the most asked question, that is,
How to remove acne scars, pimple marks, spots in one day, 2 days, or overnight naturally?
Let me be brutally honest here.
It certainly is not possible to remove blemishes in a single day. Such a miracle treatment does not exist.
Your skin cell cycle needs 28 days to turn over and reveal new cells. That is why new blemishes and sun tan fade by itself in a months time with proper skin care. And so the point here is, older scars needs at least 12 weeks to fade.
Use ACV Water | Lemon Juice | Fenugreek Water Spot Treatment
Use a cotton ball and soak it in one of the three solution. Place it on the areas that require attention. Repeat twice a day.
Apple Cider Vinegar – Dilute ACV in equal parts of water.
Lemon Juice – Although oily skin does tolerate lemon juice well, Using it twice a day could be too much for your skin. In that case, dilute and use it.
Fenugreek Water – Soak a teaspoon of fenugreek overnight. Boil the seeds along with the water for about 5 minutes. Once its cooled, store it in the refrigerator.
If you chose lemon juice or ACV, You MUST use sunscreen religiously as it could leave your skin photosensitive.
