bottle of waterWhen it comes to treating acne scars, you’ll save plenty of money if you can treat your skin from home. You might already have some of the ingredients you’ll need to make a treatment in your kitchen. Here are some ways to get rid of acne scars for good from the comfort of your own home.

Lemon treatment

Using lemons is one good way to treat acne scars because they are natural and won’t harm your skin. Just be careful when you go out in the sun, especially right after your lemon juice treatment, because lemons can make your face more sensitive to the sun’s harmful rays.

To treat your acne scars with lemon, squeeze a lemon and dip a cotton ball into the juice. Then dab this all over your face and wait 10 minutes before rinsing off completely and drying.

Baking Soda

Baking soda mixed with water is a great way to exfoliate your skin and give yourself a version of microdermabrasion right at home. Simply mix baking soda and water until it’s about the consistency of a thin lotion, apply to your face and rub it in for 60 seconds before rinsing off completely.

Olive oil

Applying olive oil is a great way to follow up your baking soda treatment. Often times, acne scars will make your face lose its suppleness and using a small amount of olive oil can bring the glow and elasticity back. Rub a small amount of olive oil on your face and massage it in.


Not only can you eat fruits to help keep your face clear but you can also make an exfoliating treatment with them. For example, puree some pineapple and rub it onto your face, leaving it on for 10 to 15 minutes before washing it off. The acid and the vitamin C in the fruits you use can help fade acne scars and eventually get rid of them completely the natural way.


This cannot be stressed enough: your body and skin needs plenty of water. Your skin especially needs water to build new skin cells, keep it plump and to help remove toxins. You will need to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day to achieve these results.

Sticking with it

If you want your acne scars to fade and eventually go away for good, you will need to stick with the treatments you choose every day until the scars are gone. Natural treatments are like any other treatment in that you need to be consistent to see results. As long as you keep at it, the acne scars will fade away and one day will be gone forever. Planning in advance is a good idea because this way you will be able to stick to a schedule of treating the acne scars from home every day.
