How to Remove Acne Marks

Save

Acne can be extremely harsh in some cases, and that can lead to permanent scarring. Since acne causes skin irritation, breakage and skin sensitivity, scarring will most likely occur. Skin discoloration and blemish marks are the usual scars caused by acne, which can be treated to diminish their appearance on the skin. Simple ingredients found in the home can be the perfect acne scar removal system.

Things You'll Need

  • Water
  • Lemon juice
  • Cotton swab
  • Sunscreen

Wash your face with warm water to moisten the skin and open the pores. Once this happens, your skin will absorb the lemon juice more easily, allowing it to have a deeper effect on your skin.

Soak up 1 tsp. of lemon juice onto a cotton ball, and gently dab it on your face. The lemon juice has natural acid that will help kill any harmful bacteria. It also has skin-lightening agents that allow it to lighten your skin, including your acne scars, and even your skin tone. Leave the lemon juice on your skin for 10 minutes.

Rinse the lemon juice off of your face and gently dry your skin.

Apply sunscreen to your skin afterward to protect it from harmful UV rays.

Tips & Warnings

  • Be careful when applying the lemon juice to any open blemishes, since they may burn and become even more inflamed.
  • Since lemon juice can cause photo-sensitivity in your skin, wearing sunscreen will help prevent further burns and irritation from the sun.
