Couple of Truths About Acne Scars Types

acne scars typesFortunately, there are many treatments available to utilize to heal acne scars. The annoyance is that many of them are out of reach financially for many or rather invasive or both. For example, one surgical treatment involves surgery involving removing the scarring and then stitching healthy skin over it. Most people would rather remove acne scars without the trauma of having their faces cut.

Studies have been done with cocoa butter and stretch marks (to see how effective cocoa butter is at reducing those types of marks). The results are pretty conclusive: Cocoa butter doesn’t do anything other then moisturize the skin. Those are the benefits of cocoa butter! Moisturization! This of course proves one thing – how important it actually is to regularly focus on moisturizing of the skin. Scars seem to like it (no idea why that is…).

Acne Scare Types:

Tip #1: Try applying Cocoa Butter to your acne scars. Cocoa butter will help blend the different shades of pigmentation on your face. Try applying it for 4 weeks every night before bed. Palmers makes a great cocoa cream, however you can use the unrefined cocoa butter from your local natural food mart.

2. Lemon Juice-Lemon juice is another antioxidant that is very effective at reducing the color of and size of acne scars. Lemon juice can be used internally and externally. By drinking lemon juice on a daily basis, our skin will rejuvenate more quickly. Dead skin cells will shed more quickly, allowing new skin cells to grow in their place. The new skin cells will be healthier and have more elasticity because of the healing properties from the lemon juice. Applying lemon juice directly on acne scars can reduce the color because of its bleaching properties. Soak a cotton ball with lemon juice and dab on acne scars. Leave for 15 minutes then rinse. Be wary of going out in the sun after using lemon juice on your skin. It can cause the skin to burn more easily, so apply sunscreen when necessary.

1. Honey- Honey has been used as a healing agent for thousands of years in several different cultures and religious settings. Honey is used to remove odors, relieve swelling, and reduce scarring, as well as treating the common cold and cough. Honey is an antioxidant, which can remove free radicals that can harm the skin. Applying honey to acne-affected areas cannot only reduce scarring but it can kill the bacteria that are causing the acne to occur. After cleaning the skin, apply honey directly on the skin. Leave for 10 minutes then rinse with warm water and pat dry. Honey can also be ingested orally to refresh and rejuvenate the skins appearance.
