5 Proven ways to getting rid of pimple marks naturally

Getting rid of pimples can take a long time and during this time some pimples die and leave spots while new ones come out. After getting rid of pimples, those pimples leave marks on the spots.

There are so many creams that can clear these marks or scars even though they might be effective they might have some side effects. That is why going for natural treatment of these scars can be a better option at times.

What I absolutely love about these natural treatments is that I get to eat them while treating my acne scars... awesomeness!!!

So, in this article, we'll explore 5 valuable natural home treatments that have no side effects and are also inexpensive.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is known and used by individuals and cosmetic companies as a natural moisturizer. To apply, put a little of the coconut oil in your palm and use your finger to massage it on the affected area and leave it for 30 minutes. You may decide to wash it off or leave it while you go out or go to bed. If you are not comfortable with it on your face you can wash it off.

Honey is another natural moisturizer used by many. It has the ability to heal scars. When buying honey, it is best to go for the raw honey, not the ones sold in stores. To apply, take a sizeable amount with your finger and apply it to the affected area. (Avoid the temptation to lick everything in the bottle). Leave it for 30 minutes before washing it off with clean water.

Aloe Vera

This plant is a major ingredient for many cosmetic products. It contains vitamins that help in healing and fading scars unlike some other treatment, you won't have to worry about irritation when using aloe vera as it is mild to the skin.

Again when applying aloe vera gel, go for the raw one and avoid the ones found in the stores. To apply, take a left press to get the gel then apply the gel to the affected area and leave it for 30 minutes to soak into your skin then wash it off. If you're bold enough to withstand the bitter taste of Aloe Vera, blend it with orange juice and drink every morning. This will serve as a detox to clear all impurities from the system thereby working for your skin and weight loss as a whole.

Juice gotten from lemon contains a compound called alpha-hydroxyl acid (AHA). This compound has the ability to heal and clear scars. To apply, squeeze a lemon to get the juice into a container, then use a clean cloth or cotton wool to apply it to the affected area. Leave it for 30 minutes before washing it off. Avoid going under the sun with the juice on your face as this can make the scars more pronounced.
