Acne scars can make even the bravest of people self-conscious but thankfully, there are many natural remedies that can help make these scars look less prominent. If you’d like the freedom to live without acne scars you can make some simple changes in your lifestyle and use these simple methods to help reduce their appearance.
These scars occur when acne isn’t treated properly or when bacteria has infected wounds. Swollen pores can become problematic during and after the outbreak and the resulting holes in the skin can take quite some time to heal. Scars can be anything from mild blemishes to red or purple marks that are hard to get rid of. Some dermatologists suggest laser treatment and other intensive methods, but it can be simpler than that. These nine natural remedies can make acne scars look less prominent and help your skin feel smoother and plumper.
Fenugreek seeds have long been used to help skin look more plump and blemish-free and they are easy to utilize. With a handful of these seeds you can create an effective ointment that can be used overnight.
Take your seeds and boil them until they’re a little soft and then, take a pestle and mortar, or anything else that you can use to grind the seeds, and mash them until you create a paste. Store this paste in an airtight tub in a cool, dry place.
Every night, take a blob of this paste and apply it to your acne scars. You can leave the paste on your skin for around half an hour before washing it off with warm water, or alternatively you can keep the paste on overnight and wash off in the morning.
