For most people who suffer from acne, the possibility of being blemish-free can lead to a cabinet full of creams and oral medication. Some of these treatments offer immediate results but, most of them have a long list of side-effects. Home remedies do a great job at fading acne marks and also help you get back the complexion you had before the breakout.



Avoid using chemical creams and try these remedies to reduce acne scars.



1.    Lemon juice

(Lemon juice is effective at lightening acne scars)

Fresh lemon juice has ascorbic acid which is an astringent that dries out acne inflammations. Also, the antibacterial properties in it battle against acne-producing bacteria. All you need is 2-3 teaspoons of lemon juice and a cotton ball. Dab the lemon juice in the cotton and apply it all over your face. Leave it for 30 minutes and then wash off. Continue using it daily for 2-3 weeks to see visible results.


2.    Baking soda

Baking soda is a gentle exfoliator that removes the dead cells from the upper layer of the skin. It also boosts the renewal rate of skin cells and fades marks with continuous usage. Baking soda gets rid of acne marks and reduces redness and swelling as well. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with water and make it into a paste. The consistency should be not too thick or watery. Apply it on the face and leave it for 5-7 minutes. Gently scrub your face and wash off. If you experience any irritation stop using it.


3.    Tomatoe

Tomatoes are rich in vitamin A and lycopene which nourishes and rejuvenates the skin. Vitamin A helps to heal your skin problems, reduces scars and aids in the quick growth of new skin cells. Just apply fresh pulp of a tomato on the face, leave it for 20 minutes and then wash off.
