Well I have acne scars and don't know how to get rid of them.
I want a natural way...
I also get acne every now and then is there a natural way to get rid of it?What is a natural way to get rid of acne and acne scars?
Cleanse daily, avoid washing away natural oils with soaps or washes, this causes skin to produce more oil than normal which clogs pores. I recommend Oil Cleansing Method (OCM), it doesn't strip away natural oils so is healthy, reduces acne and heals scars. Mix half Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) to moisturize and half Castor Oil (CO) to cleanse, change mix as your skin changes, also try adding tea tree oil as it's antibacterial. Massage mix into your face, then put a hot face cloth onto your face for at least 1 minute, this opens up pores letting the oil cleanse. Wipe off oil, any trace amounts of oil are absorbed so skin won't be greasy. http://www.moogoo.com.au/category13_1.ht鈥?/a> Have your own face cloth and towel, keep them clean and dry to avoid bacteria growth which can cause spots. Moisturize daily, as long as it's not greasy it won't cause spots, but don't be scared to use oils such as Bio Oil which will heal scars too, remember oil is actually good for your skin.
Once a week steam to open pores by putting your head under a towel over a bowl of hot water, but don't do this during breakouts as it stimulates blood flow and oil glands which can make things worse. Exfoliate weekly to scrub off dead skin, use something with rounded beads as things such as apricot kernels have sharp edges which cause small cuts leading to spots. Another way to exfoliate is cosmetic vinegar which also promotes circulation, regulates skins pH and is antiseptic. Mix 500ml of apple cider vinegar, 3ml lavender essential oil, 3ml rosemary essential oil, 2ml rosewood essential oil, and 2 tablespoons glycerine. Place into a glass bottle, use as cleanser by adding 1 tablespoon vinegar to 1 cup of water. Try masks too, they are easy to make and there are many recipes online, see Make Your Own Cosmetics http://www.makeyourcosmetics.com or Pioneer Thinking http://www.pioneerthinking.com try this mask;
Strawberry acne mask;
Ingredients: 陆 cup fresh strawberries, 1 egg white, 2 teaspoons of honey.
Mix together ingredients until smooth using a blender or a fork. To use spread over face and leave for 15 minutes, rinse off with cool water and pat dry. This one is good as strawberries are rich in salicylic acid which is commonly used in acne treatments, honey is also antibacterial.
Keep yourself healthy, diet is a big factor so make sure to get a healthy diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables as well as a lot of water, but avoid salty foods as iodine aggravates acne, try also a good multivitamin - vitamins A, B6, zinc and chromium help to clean up acne. Get plenty of exercise, sleep and stay stress-free. Pay particular attention to your skin during harsh weather when it is more prone to damage, also avoid agrivation from the sun by using plenty of sunscreen. Make-up is best avoided all together, but if you do wear it use as little as possible and keep your make-up clean as dirty sponges or hands in make-up causes spots. Use mineral foundation as it has great coverage but is light so won't clog pores and is free from harmful ingredients, most commercial brands make mineral ranges now so it's easy to find. What is a natural way to get rid of acne and acne scars?
1. change your pillow case every other day.
2. Drink at least 80oz of water every day
3. Don't wash your face with soap only hot water in the shower
4. Take a multi vitamin every day
4. Don't use fabric softener or laundry soap with perfume
This has worked very well for me for the past 5 years, I don't ever put any chemicals on my face. If I forget to do even one of these my face starts to break out again.
I don't have an answer for the scars other then to see a dermatologist.
If you have acne: Put really hot water in a bowl and put your face in the steem. wait 10 minutes, then your acne is all open, so then put ice on all of the acne.
Why this helps?: Steem is hot, wich makes your acne open up, and the ice is cold, wich makes the acne close without dirt in it.
If you have acne scars;The cheap way: Lemon and Honey. Use both, BUT NOT MIXED and leave it on the scar's for 15 minutes. do that everyday (1 a day)
I use lemon juice to get rid acne and acne scars.Few tips i wants to share with you....

I am not an infomercial but swear Pro-active was a miracle, start on that ASAP and in regards to your scars use other products that contain VITAMIN E.
I have a dog bite scar and use Bio Oil, and Silicone gel.
On the labels they always mention they do wonders for acne scars.
Also I have been researching and found Paw Paw ointment is great for it!!
Good luck keep me informed!

propolis is the best natural acne cure:
aloe vera is another natural way to cure acne:
try Tea Tree Oil.
Apply tea tree oil to the area several times each day. Some research indicates that tea tree oil is just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, the number one over-the-counter acne treatment.
