Calling out those who love all natural ingredients for their skincare routine, and those who want to jump onto this bandwagon. Check out these 3 home ingredients used to traditionally treat acne scars – although the science behind them is unclear, they are still able to give your skin other benefits
1. Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera can be used to lighten acne scars, Aloe vera gel is a natural antibacterial substance which helps kill acne-causing bacteria. Being a 2-in-1 kickass ingredient, it helps both active pimples and scars. We recommend to use this everyday or every other day – the plus point of Aloe Vera is that it gives your skin an abundance of moisture, leaving it supple and smooth!
2. Raw Honey
Honey helps your body’s healing process, this helps speed up acne scars – other than taking a spoonful of tasty honey in hot tea, you can use it as a spot treatment on scars. We recommend to use this spot treatment every other day as a paste. Aside from scars, it’s also great at tackling those angry looking active pimples by calming the skin and reducing redness and inflammation.
3. Baking Soda
Baking soda helps in fading acne marks, working as an exfoliator to shed skin. Dry and dead skin cells that lay on the surface make it harder to get rid of scars and marks. Even though baking soda is a natural ingredient be sure to do a patch test, to ensure your skin doesn’t react badly with it. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda with two teaspoons water until you get a smooth paste and then apply it as a spot treatment, letting it sit for 2 minutes before rinsing.
