If you suffered from acne as a teenager, or you experience breakouts during hormonal changes, you may be concerned about acne scarring. If you are looking for a good moisturizer for acne scars, such as the Whirl Moisturizer, or other treatment options, it is best to skip the chemical-filled products and go natural. The following ingredients, which can be found in Blume’s all natural products, not only help combat acne scars, but they are also good for the skin.
Aloe Vera Is Your Best Friend
Aloe vera is a plant with healing powers. One of its compounds is aloesin, and this may prevent the overproduction of melanin, which is what gives scars their dark pigment. Aloe vera is also an anti-inflammatory, and inflammation is part of the process of developing scars.
To use aloe vera, squeeze the gel out of a leaf from an aloe vera plant and apply it directly to clean skin. You can also purchase an over the counter gel, but make sure it is 100% pure gel and is intended for the face. Leave the gel on for about 30 minutes and then rinse.
Lemon Juice Benefits
Lemons may be an inexpensive way to fight acne scars. The juice has antibacterial properties, and it can be used as a natural bleach. One thing to be aware of is that lemon juice can be harsh on the skin, so it should not be used if your skin is sensitive, and it should always be mixed with something else.
Mix the juice with equal parts honey and apply it to the scars with a cotton ball. Wash it off after around 10 to 15 minutes. You can also mix it with equal parts vitamin E oil, apply before bed and wash it off in the morning.
Enrich Your Skin With Coconut Oil
When looking for natural acne scar products, you cannot go wrong with coconut oil. It is hydrating, has antibacterial properties, cleans deeply, forms a protective barrier and it contains essential fatty acids.
To use, apply pure coconut oil directly to the scars, massage for a few minutes, cover with a warm cloth for 30 seconds and then use the cloth to remove the oil. You can also mix it with a small amount of lavender oil, massage and leave on for up to 30 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Enhance its effects by spraying on Stargirl Face Mist before walking out the door.
Skin-Healing Properties Of Turmeric
Turmeric has anti-bacterial properties and it helps fight inflammation, so it has been shown to help fade the hyperpigmentation of scars.
To use, mix one teaspoon with one tablespoon honey, coconut oil or aloe vera gel. Apply to the scars and leave for 10 to 15 minutes. Use wet fingers and massage for 5 minutes. Rinse well.
Oh, The Power Of Honey
Honey has long been known for its antibacterial properties, so it is helpful in reducing acne scars. Use it with turmeric, as described previously, or apply it directly onto the scars and cover with a bandage. Leave on overnight and wash off in the morning.
You do not have to live with acne scars, and here at Blume, we believe that natural is better. Use these DIY remedies or search for products, such as Meltdown Acne Oil, that contain high-quality ingredients.
