For a teenager or for a person within 25 to 30 years, it is not unusual to get acne and pimples which might be caused due to changes in hormones and imbalances. And during this period, we often fail to take proper care of our skin. Pimples and acne do leave scars behind which are not easy to get rid off. Well, I am having oily skin (super oily) and have acne scars, so ask me how I feel to see these hideous acne scars on my face! Nothing less than a nightmare! I know, many of you might be suffering from similar issue. Well, if you want to get beautiful skin, then please read on the article to know how to treat acne scars. I have put together the procedures to make some facial masks which can help you to get rid of acne scars.

Sandalwood Facial Mask : Take rosewater and sandalwood powder and mix these 2 ingredients together. Apply it on the face and leave it for 1 hour at least. After that wash off your face with plain water,

Olive Oil for acne scars : Massage olive oil on the scars everyday. It moisturizes the skin and softens the skin texture thus reducing the acne scars.

Fenugreek mask for acne scars : Boil fenugreek seeds in plain water, and use this solution on the marks. However make sure that the solution is cool when you apply. Use this water or solution to wash the face. Do not wipe this, keep it on the skin to dry completely.

Potato cleanser for acne scars : Make a paste using grated potatoes. Use this paste on the affected area. Let it dry for some time and then rinse off.

Tea tree oil for acne marks : Take tea tree oil and put it on the marks. Keep it overnight. This helps in reducing the redness of the skin and inflammation.

Baking soda for pimple marks : Make a mixture with baking soda and water and make a thick paste with these. Apply this mixture. Keep it on your face for at least 20 minutes before you wash off with lukewarm water.

Ice cubes for skin : You can rub ice cubes daily on the infected areas.

Wash your face well : Whenever you come from outdoors, wash your face always to get rid off any kind of dirt and bacteria.

Remove make-up always : If you use make-up, then once you come back home, make sure to remove it properly. Do not use any oil based products.

Do not touch your face : Avoid touching your face often, as that will lead to inflammation on the skin and acne scars. So don’t worsen the condition by touching your face unnecessarily!
