Updated on February 2, 2018

Acne Scar Removal tips that work Fast

Rosewater. Rose pedals have anti-oxidants, which help to get rid of free radicles and improve overall skin health. It's best to apply with a cotton ball after letting 6 pedals soak in a cup of water for 30 seconds.

Don't over-cleanse. It's important to exfoliate the skin, but don't scrub to the point of layer removal. Just a light wash with hot water, followed by a cold water rinse using a mild cleanser is fine. Less is more when it comes to the skin and you should never spend too much time scrubbing your skin, which leads to irritation.

Stay away from Harsh Cleansers. Certain types of cleansers should be avoided because they will only lead to an increase in acne and further Acne Scars. Pay attention to what you put on your skin and make sure it's not to harsh but gets the job done at the same time.

Use a better moisturizer. Oil free moisturizers, moisturizers that are hypoallergenic and full of vitamins and minerals are great to use, but you should experiment with different moisturizers to find out whats best for your skin type.

Honey. 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.

Vitamin E. Capsules are best to use topically over skin or with a home remedy, but you should also eat more foods with vitamin E and even take a vitamin E supplement, which will improve acne scars over time.

Reduce stress. Stress can cause hormonal imbalances, and overall poor skin health, which leads to acne and eventually leads to acne scarring, which can be prevented with a health diet, regular exercise and relaxation time. Sleep is also a very important part of reducing stress.

Vitamin D. Vitamin D, also known as the "sun vitamin" is vital for your skins health. It's best when absorbed from the sun, but make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen to prevent skin damage caused by UV rays.

B Vitamins. Vitamin B6, B12 amd others have directly impacted the skin, but you shouldn't take supplements as much as you incorporate foods rich in these vitamins to allow for better kidney function and absorption.

Drink 8 glasses of water daily. I can't stress how important water is to your skin and how dehydration can lead to kidney problems, which causes problems with vitamin absorption leading to skin problems.

5 minutes of vigorous daily workouts. 5 minute sprints, crunches, pushups or even jumping jacks will help to increase cell turnover and improve blood pressure and overall health, which will improve your skins complexion overall and heal acne scars.

Get better sleep. Sleep problems have been linked to skin problems due to hormonal imbalances that occur when your sleep patterns change.

Reduce Sebum. Sebum is an oil produced by the skin which bonds with hair and causes a clogged pore, which ultimately leads to Acne and eventually Acne Scarring. Hormones, Certain Foods and even skin products can cause problems with sebum.

Reduce Sugar in the Diet. Sugar consumption causes an increase in sebum, which leads to pore blockage, so it's important to prevent further acne before it turns into a scar by reducing the amount of sugar you eat.

Include skin vitamins in your diet. Taking supplements is great, but sometimes the supplements don't get absorbed as easily by the kidneys, which is why it's important to incorporate certain foods into your diet so your kidneys can absorb the vitamins more easily.

Take care of those Kidneys. Kidneys are very important to your overall Skin health because they absorb essential vitamins needed by the skin to retain it's radiance. When you have a deficiency in certain vitamins potentially caused by kidney problems, your skin becomes apparently less attractive, which is why it's so important to take care of your kidneys by eating less sugar, eating raw vegetables, eating plenty of berries and drinking plenty of water to keep your kidneys flushed.

Tips that Improve the appearance of Acne Scars

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.

Relaxation time. It may seem like there aren't enough hours in the day to everything you need to when it comes to skin health, but if you want to get rid of acne scars, you will need your immune system to be at it's best and it's a proven fact that stress causes a reduction in immune function, leading to poor skin health and slower healing. Reduce stress by having an hour or two of scheduled "relax time."

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.

Exfoliate. 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.

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.

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.
