  • Tea Tree Oil: Tea Tree oil is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties and it has been used in several beauty products to tame down acne and scars. Due to its high potency, it is best to use it diluted with a carrier oil like jojoba or almond oil. Dab a cotton pad on the affected areas thrice a week for best results.
  • Aloe Vera: This humble plant has many benefits. Aloe vera is known to heal and soothe inflammation and due to these properties, you can use the pulp of the plant directly on the scars. It helps with the regeneration of the tissue while deeply hydrating them and thus reduces the appearance of scars.
  • Sandalwood powder: Another household favorite is sandalwood powder when it comes to treating acne and scars. Due to its healing properties, it works as a great agent to reduce scars. Mix with some cold milk apply on the scars and wash it off with cool water. This is a gentle method and can be used daily.
  • Honey: A great moisturizing and anti-bacterial agent, honey is the best natural remedy to get rid of acne scars. It is extremely soothing to the skin and helps in healing and is suitable for all skin types. Apply honey directly on the affected areas and once it dries, wipe off with cold water.
  • Chemical peels: Chemical peels like AHAs and BHAs are applied to the skin which penetrate into a deeper layer of the skin by removing the top layer. These peels work great for deeper and more prominent scars on the skin. Depending on the type of scars, different levels of chemical peels are chosen and tailored according to skin type.
  • Dermabrasion: In this process, a rapidly rotating device removes the top layer of the skin and allows for new and smoother skin to grow. It is regarded as one of the most effective treatments for severe acne marks.
  • Microneedling: This procedure is also known as collagen induction therapy. In this treatment, the skin is pricked by tiny sterilized needles and one might experience a tingling sensation on the skin. The body makes more collagen and elastin to heal these wounds eventually helping the skin to remove scars and achieve a smoother look.
  • Laser resurfacing: Laser resurfacing is an excellent clinical treatment as it removes the outer layer of the skin and heats the underlying skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers. This treatment is great for improving skin texture and appearance.
