How To Remove Acne Scars Naturally
ACNE, one of the most common problem that everyone has to struggle with (Except for the lucky few) at certain points of their life. Often, we will be tempted to pick at them which leaves ugly scars which are difficult to remove.
Here are some of the natural effective ways that I have tried before which of course would take longer as compare to commercial products but are definitely cheaper and gentler for our skin.
1. Egg White

Best Used: 2-3 times a week
Step 1: Whisk 2 egg whites until they turn fluffy.
Step 2: Spread the egg whites on to your skin with your fingers or brush ( remember to wash your hands before !) concentrating on the problem areas.
Step 3: Let the egg whites sit for 15-20 minutes ( It will become tight and harden )
Step 4 : Rinse with warm water
Step 5: Apply Toner to balance pH of skin and close up the pores, Serum to improve richness of skin and moisturiser to maintain suppleness of skin
This is the method that works the best for me !
Lemon juice contains large quantity of citric acid, lactic and glycolic acids and Alpha Hydroxy Acids or also known as AHAs which are commonly found in many beauty products.
Lemon juice also removes dead skin cells and counter hyper pigmentation which helps in lightening acne scars.
Best used : 2-3 times a week
Step 1 : Wash your face with regular cleanser
Step 2 : Squeeze lemon juice into a clean bowl
Step 3: Dab cotton ball into lemon juice and dab it onto acne scars
Note: There may be slight stinging effect. Discontinue use if skin turns red.
