Excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria in the pores of our skin cause inflammatory scars, resulting in the formation of acne scars.
As if the dread of acne and pimples is not enough, they leave terrible marks on the face which affect our looks and confidence. Excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria in the pores of our skin cause inflammatory scars, resulting in the formation of acne scars.
While some scars are painful, most create an uneven texture spoiling the smoothness of your skin. As you age, these marks become more prominent as the skin loses its elasticity and collagen. Here are 3 face masks to get rid of your acne scars with natural kitchen ingredients.
almond milk and egg
Take a bowl and mix two spoons of almond milk in one egg white. Add a teaspoon of lemon juice and mix all together until a creamy consistency is obtained. Apply face mask evenly twice a week and wash off thoroughly. The astringent properties of egg whites control oil secretion and heal your skin from acne marks. Almond milk gives you blemish-free skin and a moisturizing effect that brings back the glow to your face.
Aloe Vera and Lemon
Aloe vera is a gift from God for all skin related problems. The anti-bacterial and nourishing properties present in its gel make aloe vera a great remedy against acne-prone skin. Aloe vera contains Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Zinc which help in lightening the blemishes. Remove the gel, add lemon juice to it and apply it on the affected area for 10-15 minutes. Wash your face with lukewarm water and apply any moisturisation.
Apple Cider Vinegar and Green Tea
The alpha hydroxyl acid present in apple cider vinegar unclogs your pores and works on cell regeneration and also balances the pH of your skin. It lightens acne scars and heals them over time. Antioxidant-rich green tea has properties to make the skin young and soft. Mix these two ingredients with some honey and sugar and wash with lukewarm water and apply the mask on your face for 15 minutes.
Use any of the three masks twice a week and watch your skin glow without any blemishes.
