The only thing that might be worse than a zit is the scar the zit left behind. The thing that is really bad about the scar is the knowledge that it will be something you have to live with for the rest of your life. What you might not know is that there are things you can do to get rid of the scar.
Don’t Waste Time
The first step in getting rid of your scars is to act quickly. The sooner you take the proper steps to get rid of the scar, the more likely you will be to succeed. On that note, you are also going to have to be patient; it takes time to remove a scar.
If you don’t drink enough water, you will find yourself more prone to scaring. Drinking water is almost as useful for keeping your skin moist as rubbing an expensive lotion all over yourself. Moist skin heals faster and is less prone to scarring than dry or flaky skin. You should drink even more water during the winter than you do in the summer.
Try using lemon juice to wash your face twice a day. Not only has lemon juice been proven to be an effective way to lighten a scar, it has also been useful for removing blemishes, such as freckles, small moles and sun spots, from your skin.
Vitamin E is what Mother Nature herself would use to treat a scar. Eating large amounts of vitamin E when you are injured or have a face speckled with acne will help prevent the scars from forming. The clear fluid found inside of vitamin E capsules will moisturize your skin and gradually remove the scar. All you have to do is break the capsule open and mix the gel with a tiny bit of aloe vera, and smear the resulting concoction on your scar.
Olive oil is almost as good for the outside of your body as it is for the inside. Place a small amount of olive oil onto the tip of your finger and gently massage it into the skin surrounding the scar. Doing this two or three times a day will eventually cause the scar to fade.
