9. Turmeric

When it comes to acne scars, turmeric is very effective.

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is loaded with skin-healing properties. It has anti-inflammatory properties that help heal the acne and scars on your face.

Plus, turmeric has regenerative properties that accelerate the healing process.

  • Mix 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder with a little lemon juice to make a paste. Apply it on the scars. Wash it off after 15 minutes with lukewarm water. Pat dry and apply a light moisturizer. Do this twice daily.
  • Alternatively, mix together 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt and 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin coconut oil. Apply it on the affected area. Allow it to dry. Using wet fingers, gently scrub it on your skin for a minute. Wash it off with lukewarm water. Do it 2 or 3 times a week.

Note: Turmeric will stain your clothes, so take care not to spill the paste.

10. Honey

Honey is great moisturizer for your skin and is also rich in antibiotic and healing properties. It can help treat acne as well as heal the damaged skin by preventing accumulation of dead skin cells and stimulating skin tissue regeneration.

  • Apply some honey on the scars, cover it with a bandage and leave it on overnight. The next morning, wash it off with warm water. Repeat daily before going to bed.
  • Crush 2 or 3 aspirin tablets into a powder, then mix it into 2 teaspoons of honey. Apply it on your scars and leave it for 15 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water. Use it once daily.

Additional Tips

  • Avoid picking, popping or squeezing acne, as it can cause stubborn scars.
  • Do not touch the acne-affected area too much, as dirt and bacteria from your hands can lead to infection and scarring.
  • Avoid too much sun exposure. The ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can make scars more prominent.
  • To protect your skin from sun damage, use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF (sun protection factor) of 30.
  • Use herbal and chemical-free skin care products, as chemicals can increase the risk of scarring.
  • Avoid applying makeup immediately after washing your skin, as it can clog your pores and lead to more acne breakouts.
  • Always apply moisturizer when your skin is damp, so that the moisturizer can work its way into your skin.
  • Exfoliate once a week to slough off dead skin, revealing the fresh, soft new skin underneath.
  • Quit smoking, as it delays the healing process.
  • Manage your stress level. Stress can worsen acne, especially in females.
  • Get enough sleep, as collagen production and cell repair is faster and more effective during sleep.
  • Keep your clothes and bedding clean.
  • Drink enough water to keep your body hydrated. Dehydration can cause dry skin and worsen acne scars.

  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.
