If you have acne, living with a blemish-free skin means having a medicine cabinet full of creams and even medications taken orally.
These treatments do offer powerful and usually immediate results, but most of them have side effects especially when used for an extended period of time.
This is why natural solutions are sought after. Here are the best and safest alternatives that can remove scars and pimples without the harsh chemicals:
Gel from the plant has vitamins that can diminish scars and heal skin. It’s a gentle solution that doesn’t irritate or damage skin. Aloe vera gel is sold in pharmacies, but potted plants are better. You only need to break off the leaf and you will see the gel, which you will massage onto your skin. Don’t rinse for at least 30 minutes.
This kitchen ingredient has literally hundreds of uses and one of them is healing scars. Baking soda contains crystals of sodium bicarbonate (its real name)and these can exfoliate the skin. To use, simply mix water and about two teaspoons of baking soda until you make a thick paste. Massage the paste onto your skin and leave it there for up to three minutes. Rinse using lukewarm water and use a
natural moisturizer afterwards.
