How Do You Get Rid Of Spot Scars On The Face?  -  Top Tips For An Even Skin Tone

It's bad enough that you have to suffer the acne in the first place, but dealing with mess it's made of your skin is just insult to injury. For the girls (and some guys), reaching for the make-up is the the first option, unfortunately, covering the damaged skin will only lengthen the healing process, and sometimes make the skin worse. So how do you get rid of spot scars on the face?

Firstly, lets take a look at what "spot scars" are. The scarring on the skin seen after an outbreak of acne has a medical term - Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation. Millions of people suffer from this condition at some point during their lives, with varying degrees of severity. Hyperpigmentation refers to the condition where dark spots or patches of skin remain after the spots have healed, in severe cases small "pits" in the skin may be visible. After any skin trauma your body over produces a chemical known as melanin, to help speed up the healing process. Unfortunately, this chemical is also responsible for the color or pigment in your skin, which is the cause of the dark marks that remain on your skin.

So how do you get rid of these spot scars?

For most, it's just a matter of time, but some spot scars are notoriously hard to get rid of, and will take many months to fade. So what can you do to speed up the healing process?

Natural remedies are always a good start, here are a few things you can try.

Apple Cider Vinegar - Long been used for all manner of ailments, and very good for lightening darker patches of skin. Apply sparingly with a cotton pad twice a day.

Potato Slices - Potato is a highly underrated as a natural remedy, potato peel has been found to be very effective in treating burns, and is also very good for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Apply slices of potato to the skin for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Alternatively, mash some raw potato pieces, then squeeze the juice out through a muslin cloth. Apply the neat juice to the skin.

Vitamin E Oil - Break open a capsule and apply directly to the skin. Vitamin E capsules are readily available at most health stores.

There are plenty more home remedies for hyperpigmentation, some work better for some than for others, so remember that it is a case of trial and error.

Another effective method is hyperpigmentation cream, creams that are especially formulated to treat spot scars and darker patches of skin. There are plenty to choose from, always go for one that has good reviews rather than one with an expensive price tag.

Unfortunately, there is no overnight miracle cure, but there are things you can try that will dramatically speed up the healing process.
