Acne can leave embarrassing traces on our skin that we end up using concealers to minimize their appearance. Unfortunately, wearing too much makeup can make our face look unnatural and even leave us with the need to retouch from time to time. For sure you’ve searched for whitening creams or scar treatments that will help banish the dark spots, but why spend a lot when you can make your own scar treatment? As a matter of fact, with just 2 ingredients, you’ll be able to reduce the appearance of acne scars on your skin. Here are a few treatments that you can get started on.
Frankincense essential oil and sweet almond oil
In this treatment, you will need frankincense essential oil and almond oil mixed in a glass dropper bottle. You will need to fill ¾ of the bottle with almond oil then add 5 drops of frankincense. This can be used as a moisturizer or a serum to help boost regeneration of damaged skin cells, fight inflammation, and even retain moisture too.
Egg white and lemon juice
Another combination that is sure to help banish those unsightly scars on your skin is lemon juice plus egg white. You will need one egg white and freshly squeezed lemon juice mixed together thoroughly. Apply the mixture on your face evenly and allow to dry. Wash afterwards. What makes this solution effective in banishing scars is that the lemon juice has an astringent effect while the egg white helps tighten the skin. This means that your pores will be smaller and your skin lighter so your acne scars will be barely noticeable.
Almond milk and egg white
It appears that egg white does help with getting rid of acne scars. This time, instead of lemon juice, you will be using almond milk. For this recipe, you will need one egg white and 2 teaspoons of 100% natural almond milk. Combine the ingredients and mix them well. Now spread the solution on your face and allow to dry. Wash it off afterwards then pat your skin dry. It’s best that you repeat this treatment 2 times a week to improve your skin’s condition.
Orange peel and milk
What else can you use to reduce acne scars? The combination of orange peel and milk seems to get the job done. Orange peel is frequently used not just for repairing the damaged skin cells but also for regulating sebum production. It has also been found that orange peel works well with the amount of collagen our body is producing. To make this solution, you will need to combine a teaspoon of milk and a tablespoon of dried orange peel powder until it becomes a thick paste. Apply evenly on your face and leave it on for about 10 minutes. Rinse the face mask off afterwards. This treatment is best done twice in a week to see improvements to your skin’s condition.
Aloe vera and lemon juice
Aloe vera has always been considered as a versatile plant as the gel that is found within its leaves has numerous health benefits and one of them is to actually clear up the skin from impurities and bacteria. The lemon juice, on the other hand, can eliminate bacterial infection while lightening your skin. Mix the two together and you will get an acne scar treatment that works wonders!
As you can see, it is possible to make those dark brown spots on your cheeks, chin, forehead, or other parts of your body disappear without using any chemical products. These natural remedies are sure to get you the results that you are looking for in no time.
