    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

Rich in amino acids and proteins. Egg whites draws out impurities, tightens pores while lightening acne scars.

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

2. Lemon

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.

3. Aloe Vera (Fresh)

 Aloe vera soothes inflamed or burnt skin and regenerates damaged tissue. Its mild acerbic properties also reduces acne breakouts and reduces swelling and regenerates new cell growth.

Best Used: 4 times a weekStep 1: wash your face with regular cleanser

Step 2: Cut off a quarter of aloe vera and slit it into halves.

Step 3: Rub the inner side of aloe vera ( the side with the slimy gel ) onto face.

There is a second way of using Aloe Vera- Mixing it with Honey.

Honey- Loaded with anti-microbial properties and a natural antioxidant. It fights microbial infections that cause acne and extracts impurities from your pores. It will also improves skin texture.

Best Used: Daily

Step 1: Wash face with cleanser

Step 2: Blend 1 tablespoon of Fresh Aloe Vera ( without Skin ) into pulp form

Step 3: Mix 1 tablespoon of pure honey with Aloe Vera pulp

Step 4 : Allow it to sit for 10 minutes

Step 5 : Apply on face for 15 minutes

Step 6: Rinse off with warm water and finish off with toner and moisturiser.

Remember to be patient and consistent to achieve desired results! =)



  1. With home remedies, I personally couldn't get rid of my acne scars on the face. A Toronto fraxel procedure actually made these scars go away. The treatment was quite expensive but I didn't regret the money spent on it. I was really happy when I could say goodbye to acne scars forever!!!:)

    1. Hi Susan,

      Thank you for sharing!
      I have done laser treatment before for acne scar treatment before too. Can't deny that the time taken to lighten the scars are definitely faster as compared to natural methods but the cost are too expensive hence I decided to try our various natural methods.

      Lucky for me, after regular applications of natural methods,the scars did fade off at a much lower cost =) But of cos the time taken is longer hence patience is really is the key to seeing results from natural methods.

      Thank you for the comment ! =)
