Acne is a must skin issue we all get through different stages of our life, although the severity changes from one to another it still leaves a mark to remind us of these days. You should have one or several red marks after acne that you might get insecure about so you can’t go out without wearing makeup and because we’re in an era going all about natural even from a makeup-wise approach we need to wear our skin at the best state we can approach. Acne scars are the toughest skin problems we can deal with, it requires a longer time to get rid of and some may be permanent but we still can lessen the effect of it a bit. I suffered from very severe acne during my early college and I used to go for my dermatologist once a year to figure out a solution on how to control acne formation with certain prescriptions and medications. Although I knew if I went for a dermatologist to fix out my acne scars I will pay a serious amount of money for things like filler or laser treatments.
I am planning to get one but right now I am not financially ready to go for it, so I’m trying to figure more natural homemade solutions to lessen the appearance of these pigmented spots on my face. Some of these remedies I have tested myself and I just swear by, others have seen pretty big effect of on my friends. So, you need to figure out the ones to go for.

Coconut oil is a very strong comedogenic oil that locks your pores and may cause blackheads and ance formation especially if you have oily skin. That’s why you need to be careful about using it, although this oil still can give you marvelous results when used for red acne scars. I used it was lavender oil and rubbed on my face before I go to bed each night for a month I was shocked by the results. My skin was so clear and tight like baby skin. When my sister saw me she kept asked about the product I use and it was only these simple two oils. The pigmentation of my scares has decreased a lot and they become nearly gone. I really recommend these oils due to the marvelous benefits of vitamin E and fatty acids from coconut oil and anti-inflammatory properties of lavender oil.
