8 Ways To Reduce Acne Scars

1.) Baking Soda

Baking soda can be used to get rid of acne scars fast. Mix one teaspoon of baking soda with 3 teaspoons of water to make a paste. Apply this all over your face on the scarred areas. Gently rub over skin in circular motion for about 3 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water. Baking soda helps to exfoliate the skin and give it a healthy glow.

2.) Honey

Honey is a great natural solution for sensitive skin, as it moisturizes skin and is non-irritating. Apply honey directly over the scars and leave it to dry. Rinse your face with warm water. Honey helps to soothe skin and reduce irritation.

3.) Lemon Juice

Mix fresh lemon juice and water in equal parts. Apply the mixture over the face, paying close attention to areas with scarring. Wash off with water after 15 minutes. Lemon juice acts as a natural skin bleach and helps to fade scars.

4.) Olive Oil

Massage oil on affected areas of skin. Olive oil helps to improve skin texture and reduce acne scars.

5.) Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is famous for treating wounds and scars. Apply aloe Vera juice or gel on scars, let it dry for about 1 hour and wash off with warm water. Apply it every day for fast results. Aloe Vera helps to reduce scarring and tightens the skin.

6.) Cucumber

Mash cucumber, apply over the face and let it sit for 15-25 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water. Cucumber has cooling effect which keeps skin smooth and helps to clear dirt from the pores.  Cucumber has many wonderful benefits to the skin and can be found in numerous beauty products.

7.) Eat Healthy

Maintain a healthy, balanced diet. Healthy, nutritious food helps your body generate new and healthy skin. Healthy diet increases immunity towards any infections, which can increase acne. Eating a healthy diet helps in preventing discolouration or pigmentation of skin.

8.) Drink Water

Water acts as a cleansing agent for your skin. Be sure to drink 3-4 liters of water daily as water will not only help to reduce active acne, but also help to exfoliate the skin and removes impurities.
