Natural home remedies always are more effective and are an economic choice than going after chemical cosmetic products. Home remedies are available at your home and can do wonders for treating your scars.  Some powerful and effective home remedies that you can very easily get your hands on are:

 

acne scars

 

 

Fresh lemon juice

If you have scars on your face caused by acne, you can apply fresh lemon juice. Do not directly squeeze the lemon on your face, rather just squeeze the lemon juice out in a bowl and use a cotton ball to dab it on your scars. Leave it for a couple of minutes and then wash off with cold water.

 

Rosewater paste and sandalwood

Mix sandalwood and rosewater, apply it on the scars as a mask. Leave it for more than an hour. You can try this mask while going to bed at nights, leave it over night. Mixture of rose water and sandalwood acts as soothing coolant that helps in treatment of acne scars.

fenugreek

 

Fenugreek

Mash fenugreek leaves, make a paste and then apply it on face. This mask can treat acne scars. The Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant while the anti-inflammatory agent it contains, helps you treat acne scars.

Baking soda and olive oil

Exfoliating your skin with baking soda may benefit you more than you can imagine. Make solution of baking soda to two teaspoons of baking soda and massage this solution on your face and then after this take a little amount of olive oil and massage it on your skin to retain the suppleness and softness lost by your skin. The moisturizing nutrients of olive oil go deep in your skin to ease and soften your skin from deep within.

Exfoliation-with-fruits

 

 

Fresh fruits

If you have fresh fruits rich in vitamin C, A, B complex, K and E that helps you have a healthy skin. And not just by eating, you can exfoliate or just use fruits as a face pack. Like pineapple, you can make puree out of pineapples and apply on your face, leave it for 10-15 minutes, the vitamin C helps you brighten your face and fade the acne marks.
 
The home remedies given above are simple ways of getting rid of acne marks and should be tried if your marks are not serious. It is important that you stick with some of these methods for some days to get the desired result.
