It’s quite embarrassing and actually a bit depressing for many women (and some men) to see acne marks especially on their faces. Since we stare much in the mirror (yes, admit it. Us women do have a habit of checking our reflections in the mirror every now and then) every time we see the acne scars on our faces we seem to lose some of our confidence and we just want to hide and duck under the covers.
Some people may think that it’s quite vain to worry much about acne scars but the truth is they are quite bothersome and truth be told, for many they are a confidence drainer.

Home Remedies for Acne Scars
Here are some helpful and easy to do home remedies to get rid of your acne scars.
- Drink plenty of water everyday. This may sound like it would not do your acne scars any good but you are certainly mistaken. You should drink 8-10 glasses of water everyday to keep your skin hydrated and not lose too much moisture.
- Before washing your face at night you can also use a hot wet towel press. You should press the hot and wet towel where the scars are and leave it on for a few minutes. The heat from the towel makes the pores of your skin breathe which would allow for dirt and pollutant trapped inside the pores to get out. The blood vessels would also become larger because of the heat from the towel which will then normalize after you remove the hot and wet towel.
- Wash your face daily after waking up and before going to bed. You should use a gentle facial soap that is hypoallergenic. Washing the face removes dirt, pollutant and other toxic materials we get every time we get out of the house and get exposed to elements.
- After washing the face at night apply the Argan oil to your acne scars. Regular use will help make those unwanted acne scars less visible.
When you have acne scars don’t just feel sad about it. Follow these skin care tips religiously and your skin will be feeling and looking smooth, clear, and beautiful once again.
