– Lemon: This citrus fruit will help brighten the appearance of your skin overtime and will fade the hyper-pigmentation that is occurring on your acne scars. Make sure to use this treatment indoor because lemon on your skin + sun exposure = bad sun burn!

Type #2: Depressions (atrophic scars)

These scars are the result of deeper, cystic acne that contained pus. Generally these pimples were grounded deeper in the skin and thus when they’re gone they leave a miniature dent in their place.

Don’t Pick – First of all, we know you’ve heard it a million times but do NOT pick at your acne! Leaving your acne alone is one of the best ways to avoid scarring and further breakouts!

Rose hip oil – This natural oil has regenerative properties, which will help to regrow the damaged skin where your scars appear. When new skin cells are formed they are the color of your natural skin, not the damaged skin.

Raw honey – Honey has antibacterial properties which will help prevent further breakouts, and it can help reduce redness.

Vitamin E – Used topically or orally, you should always make sure you’re getting enough vitamin E as it plays one of the largest roles in the overall health and resilience of your skin… not to mention it speeds up your body’s natural healing process.
