7. Potato

Potato is another effective home remedy for acne scars. The high starch content in potatoes helps fade away the scars and blemishes.

  • Grate 1 large potato and strain through a cheesecloth to get the juice. Apply this juice on your acne scars. Leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse your face.
  • Alternatively, you can cut a potato into thick slices. Rub 1 slice onto your skin for 1 minute, then leave the juice on your face for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it off with water.

Use either of these remedies 2 or 3 times daily until your scars disappear.


8. Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is a great moisturizer for your skin. In fact, it gets easily absorbed into the dermis layer of the skin that can lock in the moisture. Keeping your skin moisturized, it aids the regrowth of skin tissue at a faster pace, which in turn reduces the scars.

Cocoa butter also improves the tone and texture of your skin.

  1. Apply a small amount of cocoa butter directly on the scars.
  2. Massage in a circular motion to help the cocoa butter get absorbed into the skin.
  3. Do this daily before going to bed. Wash it off the next morning.

  1. Yes, I must agree with the baking soda it so effective, but like what the statement said don’t it leave to your face for so long it will irritate your face and may cause rashes.

  2. LISTENNN UP!!! If you are looking for ways to clear your skin I highly recommend vitamin C serum for your face!!! It gives your face a plump new look… and is one of the only things that works for me. ALSO for acne scars, look into microneedling. This made my acne scars so much lighter and almost gone! It’s expensive but it definitely works… make sure you are going to some one experienced though you could get an infection if you do it by some one who doesn’t know what they are doing… but I 10/10 recommend!

  3. cinnamon is a good ingredient to use for getting rid of acne and as most people know, so is honey so in order to make this amazing remedy .
    1 tbs cinnamon
    2 tsp honey
    mix well and apply to face and wait 15 minutes
    then rinse and moisturise.At first it may be a bit red but that’s fine as your skin would be new to this and of the little cinnamon grains.
    Another easy way is to apply ginger juice to the area of where you have acne and after 30 minutes rinse.
