Let's cover the seven best natural acne scar treatments you can start incorporating into your lifestyle in a holistic and easy to follow manner.
Everybody deals with acne at one point in their life and I think it is safe to say that nobody enjoys it. Acne is disgusting and leaves behind nasty scars even when you are done with it.
This is why many skincare products are focused on treating acne. It is a huge cash cow because there are so many people out there who are desperate to get rid of those blackheads and other scars. One big problem with this is that the market has a fair share of potentially harmful products out there that can actually cause damage to the skin instead of actually fixing the problem.
Another problem with these big-named acne treatment products is that they will cost you an arm and a leg. It is high time to look for some cheap natural ways to treat acne and get rid of those embarrassing scars.
Top 7 Holistic, Natural Acne Scar Treatments To Try
Everyone should understand they can help themselves out more by giving their skin (both internally and externally) a better environment to heal and repair itself.
Here are some of the best natural acne scar treatments to try:
Clay can be one of the most healing and absorbing substances on the planet. It dates back to tribal days where people use to ingest it for worms and parasites as well as putting it on infections and other topical skin conditions.
2. Coconut Oil
This is probably my favorite treatment on this list. This is because coconut oil not only helps with treating the acne, but it also does not dry out your skin.
Many of the big-named acne products will dry out your skin and cause you more problems down the road as a result of that. That is not the case with coconut oil.
Coconut oil is rich in various nutrients as well as beneficial fatty acids that will benefit your skin in many different ways beyond just erasing those acne marks.
Your skin will be nice and moisturized and in turn will look very youthful and radiant.
Applying coconut oil:
Apply about 1/4th of a teaspoon of virgin coconut oil to your face. Lather it on your palms and gently rub it on the skin of your face.
We suggest that you give the oil a lot of time for it to get deeply absorbed into your skin before rinsing your face. If you really have to rinse your face, at least wait about half an hour after applying the virgin oil to do so.
3. Aloe Vera
Much like coconut oil, Aloe Vera is filled with a bunch of helpful nutrients and vitamins that will do wonders for your skin. And also like coconut oil, Aloe Vera is a terrific at keeping your skin moisturized and is very careful with your skin, being sure not to damage it.
Using Aloe Vera will make your skin silky smooth and soft and will give your skin a shield against any damage or pain in the future. You can probably find a lot of Aloe Vera-based products like lotions and gels at the store – I recommend against getting those.
You simply cannot beat the real deal which is natural Aloe Vera direct from a leaf. Many of those products in the stores use Aloe Vera extract and combine it with a bunch of other things which waters down its potency.
Applying Aloe Vera:
Once you get your leaf, take off the outermost layers of it until you reach a gel-like substance. Once there, gently rub your skin with the Aloe Vera gel. Do not rinse your skin until after a half hour has passed since application and make sure you rinse thoroughly.
Yup, you can apply honey to your skin and it can actually help you. It is not just a super sweet food additive. In fact, it is filled to the brim with antioxidants and other helpful nutrients. All of these helpful substances within honey make it a superb treatment for acne scars and other skin problems. And much like Aloe Vera, it can help make your skin silky smooth and soft.
The best way to apply honey is by mixing it with lemon juice to turn into a sort of face mask. To do this, all you have to do is bring together about two teaspoons of lemon juice and two teaspoons of natural honey.
And once you have sufficiently mixed them into a mask-like substance, you can apply it your face like you would a regular face mask, but only after thoroughly rinsing your face with moderately hot water.
Be careful to not get the mixture in your eyes. Keep the mask on for two to three minutes and then rinse it off with the same moderately hot water. Once that is done, you should rinse your face again, this time with cold water.
This will cause your pores to shut so that nasty chemicals can’t get in them and cause more acne to appear. It will also seal the nutrients from the mask in the pores so that they can work their magic.
5. Sugar Scrub
You can combine a few substances with raw natural cane sugar to form a paste to apply on your face. The cane sugar will provide many healing effects to the skin on your face. Most of these effects can be attributed the cane’s glycolic acid content. Glycolic acid is a natural skin cleanser and will rid your skin of damaged and dead skin cells and help restore it to its youthful radiance.
Applying the sugar scrub:
Combine the raw cane sugar with olive oil and lemon juice. Mix them together until it forms a paste-like substance. Then you just gently apply them to anywhere on your face that you have an acne scar. Leave the paste on those areas for about a quarter of an hour before rinsing them off.
After that, apply a moisturizer like Aloe Vera or coconut oil to your face. You should do this treatment a few times a week.
6. Rose Hip Seed Oil
This substance is quite potent in making your skin fresh and healthy. It is jam-packed with a bunch of helpful vitamins and nutrients such as vitamin A and the fatty acids that are also contained in coconut oil. If you are using this substance to get rid of acne, you should be sure that you are applying natural cold-pressed rose hip seed oil.
Applying rose hip seed oil:
Clean your skin first. Then you can apply the rose hip seed oil by gentle rubbing it on your face. Make sure that your skin completely absorbs it before you stop rubbing it in. You want to be sure that your skin receives the most benefit from applying the oil.
Natural Acne Scar Treatments Conclusion
These are some of the best natural acne scar treatments that have been around for a long time.
They are far safer and far more potent than any big-named product that you may see an infomercial for and won’t cost you nearly as much.
