Updated on February 2, 2018

Acne can sometimes cause scars, which come in different sizes, shapes, colors and types but all can lead to a disruption in ones confidence and ability to look professional and even get dates. Acne scars can be healed with the right remedy.

Acne scarring removal tips

Have a skin calender. You will need a way to keep up with your skin routines and which days you need to use certain remedies. It helps to remind yourself and keep track of how long you've started certain routines and which ones are helping the most.

Exercise and cell turnover. Not many are aware that your heart rate and how much you exercise have a lot to do with your skin and how it absorbs nutrients, heals itself and even ages. You will want to get at least 10 minutes of high intensity workouts done each day which may not seem like much but it will help your skin indirectly through helping other areas.

Consistent application of remedies. The best skin remedies for acne scars will only work if you use them daily. Our skin has a "short memory" for some reason and even the best remedies won't do much in restoring your skin unless you use the remedies mentioned every day.

Hot and cold water. Before applying any of these remedies to the skin, you will need to get a cloth and soak it in very hot water and set on your face for 5 seconds. Try not to burn yourself but the water needs to be hot because it opens your pores up so the medicine will work and you will always want to rinse any application off with cold water to close up pores and prevent pore blockage.

Drinking plenty of water heals skin. Water is very important to the skin and it helps renew skin cells, increase cell turnover and cleanse the organs that are vital to skins reproductive capabilities. Drinking 8 glasses of water daily will do wonders for skin.

Make exfoliating the first step. Alcohol and salacylic acid pads work the best in exfoliating dead skin cells and bringing out the new cells but some other options include but are not limited to; lemon juice, and cleansers with scrubbing beads work good to exfoliate. This is always the first step in the process because it gets rid of the dead skin cells and makes it easier to heal your scars.

Rose petals. Roses have antioxidants that help heal the skin and when applied topically to the affected area regularly, acne scars and other imperfections will begin to heal. To make this remedy, you will need a 6 oz cup, 6 rose pedals and 3 oz of water. You add the 3 oz of water to the cup then place 6 or so rose pedals in the water and stir until mixture becomes dark red. You then apply this mixture with a cleansing pad or towel to affected area. After it sets on skins surface for about 15 minutes, you then wash your face with cold water.

Honey. Unlike other natural remedies, It's best to eat honey and apply it topically to get the best results. One teaspoon consumed daily should not only help skin but it will help your body as well. No steps are required to make the honey paste you simply add one teaspoon of honey to a pad or towel and smear it all over skin where scars are present. You leave it on skin for no more than 30 minutes and no less than 15 minutes before rinsing with cold water.

Use lemon juice. Soak a washcloth in lemon juice that has been heated up in the microwave for about 30 seconds. You'll need to Let the towel sit on skin for about 30 minutes before rinsing completely with cold water. This step works best when mixed with honey.

Cucumber Juice. A blender makes it easier to get the juice but you can still cut the cucumbers into little slices and place on a towell and let the towell absorb all the cucumber juice before placing it on the skin for no less than 30 minutes. You can also use cucumber juice with honey for best results.

Foods that heal and hurt skin. Strawberries, blueberries, coconut, grapes and cucumbers just to name a few. You need to start eating more of these types of foods and stay away from skin sinners, which include; foods that are high in saturated fat and sugar, alcohol and tobacco. Cigarettes in particular have a lot of chemicals which are absorbed by the kidneys and come out through the skin.

Vitamin E. This is the skin vitamin, you can buy the capsules and do it the easy way or get it naturally from all these recipes and remedies, either way, it's much better if you do both.

Experiment with mixing remedies. Mix and match to see what works best for you're skin. If you mix cucumber juice with lemon juice, your skin may respond better with that recipe, it all depends on what works best for you. Try different moisturizers on your skin as well.
