How to Remove Acne Scars And Redness

Acne scars are a pain. Thankfully, you can do something about them. I always advocate for trying natural home remedies before going the route of surgery - it makes a lot of sense if you ask me. So you want to know how to remove acne scars and redness? Well there are a few things that you can try. Just remember to do a spot test before trying any of these treatments - while they're natural, that doesn't mean they will play nicely with your skin - and heck, stinging nettle and pufferfish are natural aren't they? Not that you'd want to touch them...

Lemon Juice is perhaps the most effective way at reducing redness. It's one of the best acne scar treatments around and is especially helpful if you've got redness. Lemon works as a natural bleach helping to fade scars and lighten and tighten the skin. As I'm sure you know - lemons are pretty powerful things. They are very acidic and you must be careful with them. If you want you can dilute the juice before you apply it. Doing a spot test is perhaps most important for this treatment.

Exfoliation is another step in the path to removing your scars. Regular exfoliation helps to shed old skin, helps to encourage new skin growth and helps to reduce the appearance of scarring. You can exfoliate the skin in many ways. You can use a rough face cloth, or a loofah sponge. You can use a paste, such as baking soda. You can use sand paper... okay maybe not that! Regardless of the method you choose regular exfoliating of the skin will help you and will get you some good results.

Rosehip Oil is a lovely essential oil to apply to the skin after you've been blasting it with lemons and rubbing it with sandpaper. It's made from a rose in South America and is very popular among several natural health experts for the almost miraculous ability it has to smooth the skin and give it a shine and a sheen. You don't need to purchase any moisturizers or other products that have rosehip oil 'added' to them, you can simply get the raw oil. While it's got a strong smell, I highly recommend trying it.

The only other thing that will help you to remove acne scars and redness is consistency and a willingness to experiment. I can't look at your skin and tell you what the best thing for you to use is. I can only point you in the right direction, perhaps offer some advice to you about good treatments. It's up to you to actually do the treatments!
