The tried and tested solutions!

In case you’re new to this world of terminologies and are wondering what on God’s dear earth are acne scars, they’re part of the healing process of acne. Collagen buildup helps to get rid of the damaged skin where there was once acne, but this buildup appears different in color, texture, and shape and is termed as an acne scar. There are many types of acne scars and the treatment option varies from scar to scar. Some scars are smaller and not as dense, so they’re easier to treat whereas some scars are denser and mature, thus they take some time to fade out. If you’re embarking on the journey to fade out your acne scars, you’ll have to stay consistent and be prepared for the fact that results will be generated slowly since you won’t be treating them with extensive products or therapies.  

1) Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is known for its soothing and healing properties. If you wish to remove acne scars naturally, Aloe vera is your skin’s best friend. It is one of the most commonly used ingredients in the beauty and skincare world and it is so, so effective. The best part about aloe vera is that it can often be found in homes since it is one of the easiest plants to grow and maintain and doesn’t require a lot of effort to keep. It is also quite pocket-friendly. So yes, get your hands on the aloe vera plant, and peel of the green top layer to reveal gel-like structure inside. Give it a thorough blend and apply the juice on your scars twice a day for best results. You can blend up an entire leaf once and keep it in the refrigerator in an air-tight jar for up to one week. This simple yet mind-blowingly effective tip is something the majority swears by, so go get your plant now and start treating your scars today.

2) Turmeric

Are you a desi if you don’t have a huge jar of turmeric in your pantry? Growing up in South Asia, we’ve often heard our elders talking about the range of benefits this mustard yellow powder offers. One of them is the healing properties of turmeric. It is best to consume or apply topically to get the best results. Turmeric is often used to brighten up the entire skin and by doing so, it evens out the skin complexion the appearance of scars becomes less noticeable.

Turmeric is supposed to be used on the skin in the form of a mask but with this powerful ingredient, it is important to remember that a little goes a long way. You don’t need heap tablespoons of this in your mask unless you want to resemble a minion since turmeric can stain you yellow if used excessively! Use only a quarter teaspoon for one mask and apply it on alternate days in a week to get rid of acne scars.

3) Mandelic Acid

Mandelic Acid is an AHA and AHAs generally are known for their amazing exfoliating effects. The basic mechanism of action of mandelic acid is that it works by the desquamation of skin so the upper layer of the skin is peeled off, revealing fresher younger-looking skin. When the old, damaged skin is removed, the appearance of scars is dulled out and they begin to fade over time.

Now I know it isn’t readily available in your pantry but Jenpharm launched an entire range of MandelAC products that’re anti-acne and acne scars and these products are available throughout the country in your closest pharmacies and even on the website. MandelAC range offers a face wash, serum, and cream to cover a diverse group of skin types and skin needs.

4) Good Lifestyle

Did you ever go to a dermatologist and they asked you to maintain a good, healthy lifestyle as the key to get flawless skin that is clear of any acne and acne scars? Well, it is true. Acne and acne scars can be controlled and faded with a good diet that consists of collagen-rich food so collagen or new cell turnover is increased in the body, which helps the body battle the acne scars. Drinking a whole lot of water also gives a fresh appearance to the skin and makes it healthier which is easier to treat. This is something that doesn’t give immediate results in terms of acne scars but when we maintain this routine consistently and maintain the recommended lifestyle, at some point, we do begin to see the best results.

5) Neem Leaves or Azadirachta indica

One of the most commonly used ingredients in desi household is the Neem remedy for acne and acne scars. This plant is detoxifying and healing in nature. It also brightens up the complexion and is generally considered great for the skin. Neem paste can be applied topically or it can be ingested as well for good results.

You can easily try these products and see how they work for yourself but we just want you to remember that you’re beautiful nonetheless and scars do NOT make you any less prettier so don’t fret about it and take it easy!
