How to Clear Acne And Scars

Clearing acne and scars might seem like a difficult task, but with some effort, a willingness to experiment, a great reduction can be had with acne and acne scars. You don't need any expensive surgery (that often doesn't even work as advertised), there are a number of natural home remedies that have stood the test of time, cost very little and can have a big impact on your skin. One of the great things about home remedies is that they usually work for both acne and acne scarring. Yes, there are treatments that work better for acne, and some that work better for the scars, but those tips that are listed below will have a great impact on both.

Just remember that before you go ahead and try any of these that you try a spot test first. While you shouldn't have a negative reaction, it is possible and I don't want that for you! So try a spot test in an inconspicuous area first.

Green Tea has been consumed in vast quantities by the Japanese - it also makes an integral appearance in their spiritual practice. Most natural health experts agree that two to three cups of quality green tea makes a noticeable impact in the health of a person - I was recommended to drink a lot of green tea by my health expert for my skin. And yes - it does work. Drinking green tea has the combined effect of flushing the body with water, as well as providing the body with a rich source of catechin polyphenols, anti-oxidants that fight free radicals. I recommend two to three cups a day, however some acne sufferers like to drink a large pot of it in one sitting to begin with - and have seen great results that way.

Honey is also another great way to clear acne and acne scars. Honey has many anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties that are especially effective in dealing with acne. If you're able to, get Manuka honey. It's more expensive then the other honey's that you can purchase, but it's an effective one. Honey helps to remove impurities from the skin that can irritate it as well as cause acne. Basically - it's a great cleanser for the skin, and many people have seen great results with it for acne and the associated scarring. Use it as a face mask once a day, but make sure that you wash it off well with warm water - while honey is good for the skin you do not want it on the skin longer then necessary.

Baking Soda is also a commonly suggested treatment. What baking soda does is very effectively clean the skin and helps to exfoliate it. This is especially helpful for scarring, but it helps acne as well. Do I recommend that you try it? Absolutely. Simply mix up a couple of teaspoons with a drop of water and massage the paste well into your skin. This will help to shed the skin, help to slough off dirt and help to increase the rate of skin turnover. It's cheap - so why not give it a try.

How to clear acne and scars? With time, and with patience. My message to you is to simply try as many things as you need to try in order to get results. Keep consistent with your treatments and you will have much more success with acne and acne scarring. I really hope that these tips help!
