Having pimple scars all over your face could give a bad impression, not to mention that they diminish your self-esteem in the long run if you don’t take care of it. There are two ways to get rid of pimple scars; either you go to a beauty salon, or you can try removing them naturally using home remedies.
If you’re trying to remove your scars for the very first time, we suggest you try some of these home remedies first. Not only will you save a lot on money, these home remedies have been proven time and again to be quite effective:
You can use sugar to remove pimple scars by making a scrub out of it. Mix two teaspoons of olive oil with three teaspoons of sugar together and apply on face. Do this for four times a week.
- HoneyHoney helps in reducing scars. For best result, try to only use raw honey (you can buy them at specialised health store or a bee farm) instead of store-bought ones. Apply the affected area on your face with one teaspoon of honey and leave it for 10 minutes before you wash them off.
- Olive oil
Olive oil contains vitamin E and is high in anti-oxidants, helping your scars to heal faster. Before bedtime, apply a thin layer of olive oil on your face (or the affected area) and leave it for about 15 minutes before washing off.
One of the most popular remedies, cucumber hydrates and restores your skin health as it contains magnesium and vitamins. Slice a few thin cucumbers and lay them all over the affected area. Leave them for 30 minutes before washing off.
- Aloe vera
Aloe vera gel soothes your skin and mends scars quickly. While you can easily buy aloe vera gel at any pharmacy or beauty store, it’s best to get a natural one. Rub some aloe gel on affected area as much as you need and leave them for 30 minutes before washing off.
- Egg whites
Since egg whites are rich in amino acids and protein, they help your skin to recuperate from a scarred skin. Break open an egg and put it in a bowl. Separate the white from the yellow. Spread the egg whites all over the affected area and leave it for five minutes before washing off. Try to do this at least three times every week.
- Baking soda
Not just for baking cakes and cookies, baking soda contains particles that are smooth, which makes it harmless on your skin. Additionally, it really helps in getting rid of the dead skin cells on your face without chaffing your skin. Mix a teaspoon or two of baking soda with water and apply it on your face. Leave it on for five minutes before washing off.
- Lemon juice
Lemon juice contains antibacterial properties. Get two or three teaspoons of lemon juice and dab on face using a cottonball. Leave it for 30 minutes before washing off.
They may not all work on your pimple scars, but some of them can be useful in helping you to remove your scars. Try them for a few weeks first before you go to a beauty salon.
