Yes, acne may go away. However, it can leave behind pockmarks – deep pitted scars that remain more often permanently. These can be annoying especially when it is present on the face. Instead of availing a variety of treatments with steep price tags to get rid of these nasty scars, we can try an all-natural remedy with promising results.
Read on to know how we can make our pockmarks less noticeable to bring back our self-confidence and boost our appearance.
Onion has anti-inflammatory properties and helps produce collagen that aids in fading scars. Simply extract the juice from an onion and apply in on the affected area. Let it dry naturally and wash after 15 minutes.
Apply Aloe Vera Gel
Regular application of the gel from an aloe vera leaf can help get rid of pockmarks on the face. It is mainly due to its richness of vitamin E and anti-inflammatory properties which help repair damaged skin and regenerates new skin cells. Simply apply aloe vera gel and massage with it properly.
Honey And Baking Soda
The combination of these two helps in tissue regeneration and makes skin smooth and healthy. For this remedy, we need to create a paste by mixing raw honey and baking soda. Apply the paste on the scars and cover it with a hot towel and wipe the area when the towel cools down.
Exfoliate With Brown Sugar
Dermabrasion is one of the common solutions for pockmarks. We can recreate this at home using the combination of sugar and a little honey. Massage the mixture on the affected areas for 3-5 minutes. Do this once a week.
Massage With Lemon
Lemons are packed with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) which are gentle exfoliators that work hard to dissolve the material that holds dead skin cells together, leaving a softer and smoother surface. To improve the appearance of mid pockmarks, we need to regularly massage it with freshly-squeezed lemon juice and rinse off with water after 10 minutes. This also helps in lightening dark pockmarks.
Maintain Proper Skin Hydration
Proper skin hydration can make pockmarks appear less noticeable. To revive the skin’s beauty in scarred areas, we can apply coconut oil or olive oil on it before going to bed. These oils contain moisturizing nutrients that penetrate the skin to deeply moisturize it, thereby softening its texture and accelerating the healing process.
Try Cucumber Slices
Cucumber supplies the skin with vitamin C which is a precursor to the production of collagen. Regularly massage cucumber slices on the face for 15 minutes and then rinse off.
