Yeah, so I spoke about those painful bumps; now l want to talk about the pits and marks that they leave behind. Pits and marks, that’s right. People are often confused between scars and marks. What they really mean by scars is ‘the dark marks’ that are left behind by the acne.
This confusion is something that I had for a long time. I wanted to write this blog so that I could explain this to you (in my own way).
Acne scars are permanent changes that occur in the texture of the skin. Sometimes these scars are very shallow and can be easily treated while the others tend to run deep and are not easily tackled with home remedies. They usually demand few trips to the dermatologist.
Here in this blog, I intend to discuss about the dark marks that are left behind, known as post-acne hyperpigmentation. These can be easily dealt with at home itself and they improve with time. All you need is a bit of patience and the right ingredients in your kitchen cabinet 😊.
Some of the most popular things are turmeric, raw potato juice, green tea, orang peel powder or orange juice mixed with lime juice. These things could also be used on the whole face as they also help in lightening the skin complexion. The lesser known are licorice powder, red onion juice (which is quite good for lightening skin complexion) and Vitamin E capsules (applied directly on the spot).
That’s all for this one. I would put up few recipes that I have come across on how to tackle these marks and help the skin be blemish free. Keep an eye out…XOXO
