Every week I’ll give you a home remedy for common ailments. Going to the doctors is so costly and sometimes invasive, so taking care of things at home is sometimes the way to go.

Last week we talked about acne. But what happens if you have acne scars? Here’s a few tips to lessen their appearance.

Olive Oil: If used every day, this treatment can help lighten scars considerably and gradually reduces their visibility.

Lemon Juice: This natural treatment not only brings about a reduction in the scars naturally, but also helps to lighten the skin tone. For maximum effectiveness, the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon should be applied on to the skin and left on for at least 15 to 20 minutes, before it is washed off.

Apple Cider Vinegar:  Dip a small ball of cotton in the vinegar and apply it on to those parts of the skin where the acne scars are present. After around 10 to 15 minutes rinse the skin with water. Do this twice a day.

Cucumber: Several spas and salons use this home remedy in lightening skin scars. Cucumber not only soothes the skin inflammation, but also speeds up the healing process. Cut a chilled cucumber into thick slices and apply them on to your skin for around 20 to 30 minutes.

Baking Soda: Mix a small amount of baking soda in water, to make a thick paste. Dampen the acne scar-affected skin and apply the paste on it, using circular motions. After around 10 or 15 minutes, rinse the skin with warm water.
