                                                                       acne scar
Having oily skin is not bad because oilier the skin lesser will be the wrinkles. Happy to hear that 😛 .Well I am sure you must be but thing is oily skin deals with acne every day. I too have suffered from acne problem and still suffer from them but thankfully I do not suffer from blemishes. This is because of some of the remedies which have worked for me and some just worsened the problem. The worst thing is acne scars. When we get rid of the pimples we have another unwanted guest at home which as acne scarring. Acne scarring is horrible because it is difficult to take scar treatment every now and then .
To get rid of scars one should continue with their regular CTM (Cleansing, toning and moisturizing) and follow some scar removal methods.
Red scars generally take place when we pick up acne blemishes, scrapping or from illness like chicken and small pox. There are many acne scarring treatment such as dermabrasion, micromabrasion, collagen injection and laser treatment .However I am just aware of them but have never used them. These methods can give long term side effects and therefore I am dead scared of them.
My best acne scar treatments are my herbal remedies which remove blemishes and red scars without any side effects. Below are some of the natural remedies which have worked me in acne scars and red scars.
1. Calamine lotion
It reduces redness and dries up blisters which are caused by chicken pox or acne. You can apply calamine lotion 2-3 times a day .If you have to go out and you want to remove redness from your face then dip a cotton swab in the lotion and dab it over the affected areas gently. Leave it for two hours and rise off with water .It reduces redness in scars and you can then go ahead with your make up if you want to.

2. Cucumber juice

is beneficial on scars too. Just apply the juice with a cotton swab on the affected areas. It reduces redness and acne scars. You can do this 3-4 times a day .It really helps.
Take 2-3 tsp. baking soda , mix water in it and form a paste. Spread the paste on the red scars and wait for around 2-3 minute for the paste to settle down. After this massage the paste with your finger tips for a while and rise with water. Baking soda reduced scars as well as acne.

4. Olive oil

Applying olive oil gives boost to the skin and keeps it hydrated. Rubbing olive oil on to the red skin or scarred skin twice a day helps in getting rid of this skin problem. Those who suffer from acne scarring most of the time can use olive oil every alternate day. It not only removes scars but make it healthy and soft too.
also removes acne scars as it contains potassium , sulphur phosphorous and chlorine and yes please use raw potato and not the boiled or roasted one because one of the Wise She readers asked me this therefore mentioning it before hand.
