Not everyone can afford to get professional help and there are others who are weary about using products that are filled with chemicals. It’s a good thing that there are natural ways to deal with your scar. The options range from just covering your scars to getting rid of your scars for good.
Apply Lemons On Your Scar
We have heard how useful lemons are for whitening skin. This is because it has alpha hydroxyl acids that help get rid of any dead skin cells. Aside from that, they also aid in the growth of new cells and improve your skin’s elasticity. There is no doubt that lemons can naturally bleach your skin which will result to scar lightening.
Thoroughly clean the area around your scar first before you apply anything. Squeeze the lemon and make sure that you get a teaspoon of juice. Use a cotton ball to apply the lemon on your scar and allow it to stay there for around ten minutes before rinsing it.
As a friendly reminder, make sure that you apply sunscreen when you go out before your skin will be more sensitive.
Apply Honey and Baking Soda Mixture
Another option that you can try is using raw honey because it is good in making scars fade away. It can also be used as a wound treatment and tissues can be regenerated.
Measure two teaspoons of pure honey and combine it with two tablespoons of baking soda. Massage the mixture on the area with the scar for around three minutes then cover the area with a hot towel or washcloth. Use your washcloth to clean the area once it has cooled.
A quick tip: you can also mix a tablespoon of baking soda and two tablespoons of honey that’s raw. You can use this mixture as your exfoliating wash. It will help lessen the scars that you have because of acne.

Onions have an anti-inflammatory property that helps fight pimple. It will also make your scar less noticeable.
