3 Ways To Rid Yourself of Unsightly Acne Scars
Easy Remedies for Acne Scars
Acne is a nightmare to deal with in and of itself. To make matters worse, acne scars linger long after you've managed to rid yourself of the painful acne blemishes. There is hope, however. These 3 remedies will help you lighten the appearance of your acne scars, if not eliminate them altogether.
Mederma is an over-the-counter medication that's been proven to reduce acne scars, and all scars in general. The only drawback is that it works better on newly-developing acne scars or lighter acne scars. If you have deeper scars or scars that have been there for a while, Mederma may still work, but it will take a lot longer to see results.
Mederma isn't cheap, but it costs a lot less than some of the more invasive acne scar remedies. You can get a 1.76 oz. package for about $25 to $30. You apply the gel three times a day for as long as it takes for the scar to disappear (or lighten considerably).
2. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are another easy way to eliminate your acne scars. However, they only work on very mild acne scars and if you go to a professional for your chemical peel services, they can be very costly (as much as $750 per treatment). However, if you really want to get rid of your acne scars and they are mostly mild, it can be well worth the expense.
3. Rosehip Seed Oil
Rosehip seed oil has also proven to be beneficial in the treatment of acne scars. You can buy pure rosehip seed oil in the health and beauty stores or online. Apply it directly to your acne scars before bedtime and in the morning and you should notice a significant reduction in their appearance.
