The treatment for deep acne scar removal might need to include a trip to your skin specialist who might recommend acne laser scar treatment or any of the below harsher methods for removing acne scars.

Acne Scar Skin Care Tips

Tips for using a natural acne scar treatment...

  • Always test your skin on your arm with the product that you are going to use before trying the acne scarring treatment on your face.
  • Use the remedy consistently ~ Don’t just give up if it doesn’t give immediate results, keep using it. Natural remedies will take longer to show their results.
  • Always use a good basic skin care routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing and toning. Preferably with natural products.
  • Look after yourself from the inside out. To prevent further acne outbreaks and scars you will need to eat a balanced diet, exercise and drink at least eight glasses of water daily. This can also assist in acne scar repair.
  • Essential oils can be used to treat acne scars. There are even some essential oils that can dissolve sebum and destroy bacteria as well as keep the acid mantle of the skin preserved. The only disadvantage of using an essential oil for acne scars is that it can dry the skin. This is why you will need to use specific suitable essential oils including lavender, lemon and lemon tea. Other essential oils for acne scars can be mixed with a carrier oil like grapeseed oil or jojoba oil.

Prevention of Acne Scars

  • Never pop or prick your pimples, this only causes further damage to the skin. It also just ads more bacteria to the infected area.
  • Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, these will help heal and protect your skin.
  • Drink plenty of water to help flush out your system.
