I was just wondering if you know or can recommend any natural ingredients or methods for removing or minimising acne scars or similar scars. (Obviously laser surgery isn't natural lol)
I have heard topical vitamin E is supposed to help. I don't quite know if it is true, but I guess worth looking into. You can buy it as a cream (an expensive cream most likely) or just buy the soft capsules intended for ingesting and break it open and put it on the scars. Wikipedia doesn't agree though, and it recommends vitamin C instead.
Yes! There are some really good options. Save dermabrasion and lasers as a last resort for sure. The best I've used for scars is unrefined extra virgin coconut oil. Look up the oil cleansing method for tips on using it. It might give your face a different kind of complexion for a while, and some people have bad reactions to it, but it has the potential to erase quite a bit of scarring. Only use a very tiny bit on your face!
Also, manuka honey / egg masks work really good for scars for the first two weeks or so. And I've heard that avocado masks work wonders for pitted scars.
I read somewhere that some of the most effective natural scar minimizers are aloe vera, honey and lemon juice.
You can use mud or sandalwood powder to remove acne.
Accutane. It is just a derivative of Vitamin A.
It cured my acne and removed almost all my scars when I was younger. It's 100% safe unless you get pregnant while taking it, or are already depressed. I was depressed prior to taking it, and it did not make me more depressed.
Paula Begoiun (Author of The Beauty Bible) is the one who convinced me to take it, and recommends it in her book.
