The question "How to get rid of pimple scars?" is a question I often get asked by friends who want to clear there scars like I did. So instead of telling them all one by one I have decided to share my tips on how to get rid of acne scars in this blog post so I can point them all to this and help others.
Tip 1: DO NOT scratch, pick, squeeze or touch the effected areas unless necessary. Not only can this spread infection but can also cause long term scaring.
Tip 2: Use an acne scar treatment that works best for you. I use manuka honey as my acne scar treatment but conventional treatments will also work very well such as zenmed.
Tip 3: Using lemon juice is another great way to get rid of pimple scars. Lemon juice helps by removing dead skin cells and can also lighten the scars making them less visible.
Tip 4: Drink 6-8 glasses of water per day. This is extremely important whether you suffer from acne or not, but super important if you do. Water helps by flushing the body of toxins and when you consider toxins are a massive cause of acne doing this alone can help acne and acne scars.
Tip 5: My last tip is very simple, effective and free......ice cubes! Get some ice cubes and wrap them in a clean cloth, apply to the effected areas and hold it on for 5-15 minutes. This will reduce inflammation and the appearance of the acne scars.
These are the main things I use to get rid of my pimple/acne scars which have all been very effective for me. There are also more expensive and dangerous ways to remove acne scars such as surgery, dermabrasion etc but I would only recommend them if it was the only option left.
