Take a few pieces of ice and apply them directly on the acne scar. Rub them gently for around 10 minutes at a time. For best result follow this procedure at least 3 or 4 times a day. Ice has a great power to overcome the inflammatory process. It also helps to hasten the healing process. It’s recommended by all the famous Doctors. My cousin also uses this Ice cube method whenever she is seeing any acne and after sometimes she gets relief from the inflammation.
Directly apply fresh lemon juice on your acne scar and let it on for at least 10-15 minutes. Then wash your face gently. It’s very useful because it will not only reduce your acne scar but also increase your skin tone. People with sensitive skin shouldn’t use lemon juice as this can make their skin red and dull. They can add a few drops of rose water whenever they are using lemon juice for acne.
3.Apple Cider Vinegar:
Usually apple cider vinegar helps to maintain your pH balance rather it helps to make your skin more likable. It fights against the bacteria which reside in your skin due to acne. People don’t usually like the smell of apple cider vinegar but I am telling this is one effective remedy which made my skin acne-free.
Take one part of ACV with 3 parts of water (1:3). Mix it well and after that take a cotton ball and apply it on the affected area. Leave it for about 20 minutes or if you want you can leave it overnight. This will give you a smooth finish to your face. In the morning, wash it well and you will feel the difference in your skin. Your acne will fade out soon if you continuously use it for 2 weeks. If your skin feels dry after using ACV you can use your favorite moisturizer. Don’t let it so dry as it will ultimately overproduce oil.
It’s a natural cleanser and used in all over the world. If you want to use this for treatment of acne scar then make a thick paste by mixing a small amount of baking soda in the water. Apply the thick paste on acne scar by using circular motions. After around 10-15 minutes, wash the skin gently by using light warm water. Most of these remedies are totally safe for using. Baking soda tends to dry out the places where there’s been acne and ultimately helps to reduce down the stubborn acne. But if you have any other skin problems then Please consult your Doctor before using these method.

In a bowl, take 6 parts of fresh rose water and 1 part of tea tree oil. Then take a cotton ball and apply the mixture over your acne. After one hour wash it off with cold water. I love to use rose water instead if regular water as rose water helps to soothe your skin. If you want you can also use water.
How I make rose water:
Take one bottle of water and then add with it a lot of rose petal. Keep it in fridge and then take out the bottle and strain the rose petal. I keep it in the fridge for one day in total. It’s very easy to make rose water on your own.
