The skin condition acne occurs when pores on the skin become clogged with bacteria, dirt, and dead skin cells due to an overproduction of oil. Different types of pimples, called blackheads, whiteheads, or cysts, result and though they eventually disappear, they may leave behind scars that affect the appearance of skin. A home remedy is the most natural and least expensive way to treat acne scars.
Rubbing, squeezing, picking, or scratching pimples can result in scarring. Dermatologists may prescribe isotretinoin to reduce the appearance of acne scars but this is very strong and has many side effects.
Regular blood tests are required and pregnant women should not take this medication. As an alternative, a doctor may recommend dermabrasion or chemical skin peeling, which can also harm skin.
A gentler and much safer way to reduce the appearance of acne scars is to use a proven home remedy.
One treatment includes a combination of nourishing and moisturizing oils applied to clean skin and left on overnight:
Home remedies for acne & other scars or stretch marks: :
Recipe 1: Low budget option…
Mix 5 drops Carrot Seed oil, 5 Drops frankincense oil (optional) with a tablespoon of Rosehip oil. Apply to scars twice daily – the rich content of vitamins C and E will help to regenerate skin cells and collagen fibres.
Also helps to even out skin tone.
Recipe 2: For an extra potent blend…
- 1 ounce argan oil (antioxidant and moisturizer)
- 1 ounce rose hip oil (features fatty acids that repair skin)
- 3 drops carrot seed oil (high in vitamin A, repairs and tones skin)
- 3 drops rose oil (astringent, renews and regenerates cells)
- 2 drops myrrh oil (promotes tissue repair)
- 2 drops frankincense oil (helps skin heal)
- 2 drops neroli oil (aids in broken capillary repair and stimulates cells)
- 2 drops sandalwood oil (balances and nourishes)
- 1 drop patchouli oil (calms skin, stimulates new cell growth)
Mix these ingredients and store the blend in a dark glass bottle in a cool, dark location. Shake the bottle prior to each use and apply an even layer of blended oil to the scarred area.
To prevent existing pimples from scarring or reducing scar tissue in existing scars:
Try this healing ointment that features calendula. This substance is a healing anti inflammatory that soothes damaged skin. Heat ten drops of calendula oil or two cups of dried out calendula flowers with 2 ½ cups of beeswax and three cups of coconut oil in a double boiler for 20 minutes if using calendula oil or 90 minutes if using flowers.
Blend in ten drops of essential oil featuring a pleasant scent and strain the mixture through a coffee filter, tea towel, or muslin cloth placed in a wire mesh strainer. Apply the strained ointment to the acne scars.
