In this article we’ll teach you how to get rid of acne scars naturally without doing a bunch of stuff.
Although the title is like that, your hopes should not rocket to unrealistic expectations, since acne scars are pretty much impossible to heal completely. With this said, there are ways to naturally improve the way they look and slowly heal them, even faster and with better results if the scars as not as deep and the damage was not as noticeable.
But first, how are acne scars caused?
Acne scars are caused from damage into the skin produced by severe cases of acne. Inflammation and infection as severe as a cystic acne can cause damage in the outer and inner layer of the skin, bringing thus acne scars as a result of an improper response from the body’s regeneration process to deal with the injury. Scars are skin tissues which weren’t healed as smoothly as our natural skin, thus, after the healing process has been completed, reverting it to how it was before is really difficult without surgery, or relying on heavy chemical processes which might harm our skin, and even might cause more harm than good.
Another thing which causes acne in lots of people it’s the act of picking out pimples, white heads and black heads, thus damaging our own skin during the process. This is probably the most common cause behind acne scars since people can’t seem to leave their pimples be and heal by themselves, trying to make them disappear as fast as possible.
With this said… How do we deal with them?
There are several ways to deal with acne scars. The ones which we are going to focus are those which are harmless to the skin and, although bringing results slowly, these treatments are purely done with natural components.
- The most common one is relying on vitamins. Specifically speaking, vitamin supplementations going from Vitamin C, A and E. These vitamins are great for your skin and can greatly improve your skin’s health. These vitamins can help you in repairing your skin tissue, improving its flexibility by increasing your collagen levels and reducing blemishes and marks in your skin. You can also get these vitamins from foods if you don’t want to rely in supplementation.
- Oils such as coconut oil, tea tree oil, castor oil, almond oil are great to deal with acne scars when applied on the skin. They all work differently and you should research them individually if you are looking to use one of them.
- There are several home-made masks which you can try out to deal with acne scars. These include masks made from avocado, eggs, yogurt and honey, and lots of other materials. You should consider which one suits your skin type the most if you have a sensitive skin, oily skin or dry skin, before applying them.
- Aloe Vera is probably the most famous component to deal with acne scars. Aloe Vera gel applied overnight will greatly help your skin during its healing process and will make your acne scars look better and heal better if you are lucky.
