How To Heal Acne Scars And Marks With Natural Remedies
To heal acne scars and pimple marks naturally, there are a lot of natural remedies, but what we need to remember is that these natural treatments may take some time to bring results depending on each case.
The remedies I will recommend here contain essential oils diluted in carrier oils and mixed with other natural ingredients.
Before you try out any home remedy or natural recipe for reducing acne scars and marks, you should perform a patch test to see whether you have an allergy or reaction to any of the natural ingredients used.
Always remember to use essential oils that are previously diluted. If you want to use undiluted essential oils to the skin such as lavender oil, you should take the advice of a licensed aromatherapist.
When diluting essential oils and creating blends for certain skin issues such as scars or acne sscars, I always start with a lower dilution and gradually increase it if it is necessary.
Apart from these remedies, remember that a healthy diet that is free of processed and sugary foods is also very important to your skin clearing up from acne scars or acne.
