Natural remedies for acne scars that work quickly

Acne scar removal products exist, but they a joke. The only thing worth buying out of all the cremes and lotions you see is the vitamin E capsules. All your Acne scar removal cremes basically don't work, because if they really worked, they wouldn't be in stock anywhere. I have been searching for natural remedies for acne scar removal for years and here's what I've discovered.

Understand the causes. It's important for you to know what the causes of acne are and also understand it's the acne that caused your scars in the first place, but more importantly, it was a failure to correctly treat your acne or popping the zit that caused the scarring

Miracle blend. If you want to see results quicker, get 3 cucumbers, 6 strawberries, 10 blueberries, 2 tablespoons of honey and blend it together into a drink. You can drink this in the morning or at night, but I've found the best results when I drink it in the morning for some reason. I also add a few bananas to this mixture, but it's mainly for taste.

Strip the skin by exfoliating. You will need to start off by exfoliating your skin or the affected area. You should use acne cleansing pads with Salacylic acid. Stay away from Benzoyl Peroxide, which is too harsh. Get a hand towel and soak it in hot water before firmly pressing it on affected area for about 5 seconds to open up the pores before you cleanse skin with salacylic acid cleansing pads. After cleansing the skin with the cleansing pads, you will let it sit on skin for about 20 minutes before washing off face with cold water and adding a moisturizer.

Use the right moisturizer. Many people make the mistake of using the worst possible moisturizer, either they get something way too greasy and clog their pores causing more acne or they get something that doesn't work at all, causing skin to dry out and produce it's own oil, which is called sebum and it clogs pores. You will have to experiment with different lotions to find what works best for your unique skin type. Personally, I use Eucerin products because their formulas are usually non-greasy and they work great.

Stay away from greasy lotions. Not only will greasy lotions make acne scars worse in the long run by creating more acne, which is what originally caused the scars, and heavy creams are not worth the money. Use a non-greasy moisturizer that's hypoallergenic and won't clog pores.

"The red stuff" I've been using this formula for 2 years and have noticed amazing results, but the only thing I can think to call it is; "The Red Stuff." It's a mixture of rose petals and strawberry juice. You take about 8 to 10 regular sized strawberries and either blend them up or drain the juice into an 8 ounce cup, you then add 8 to 10 red rose pedals and wait for about 10 minutes. You then apply this mixture once it turns dark red to surface of the affected area. Let sit on skin for about 10 minutes before rinsing and adding regular moisturizer. Never do this step first, always exfoliate first.

Aloe Vera. Apply small amounts of aloe vera to acne scars in the morning when you first wake up and at night before you go to sleep. Aloe Vera helps tremendously with scarring. It works even better if you have the actual plant to work with.

Use the right form of a vitamin or mineral. Simply applying skin creams all the time just because they have vitamin e on the label won't heal your acne scars, but if you buy the actual capsules that break open and use that liquid to apply to the skin, you will see dramatic results quickly as apposed to gradual results over months.

Eat skin friendly foods. In the mornings, when you first wake up and get your morning coffee, add a few teaspoons of honey to your coffee instead of sugar. This is an example of replacing a "skin sinner" with a "skin saver" while not sacrificing flavor. Sugar increases your sebum, which clogs pores and honey helps heal the skin, but they both taste sweet.

Drink plenty of water. This step is underrated and often overlooked, but it's one of the most important. Not only does drinking a lot of water improve your health by flushing toxins from your organs and body, but it also helps the skin by boosting skin cell turnover and moisturizing the skin naturally.

Conclusion

Stay away from heavy creams that boast like they heal scars, but do nothing to help with the root causes, but instead make acne much worse, which leads to more scarring. Don't pop zits either, it's much faster to dry out the pimple with salacylic acid or something similar along with a light moisturizer after. Eat better and consume less sugar, dairy and processed foods. Increase your consumption of water, which will help your skin heal faster.
