What are some home remedies to remove acne scars?

What are some home remedies to remove acne scars?

Not a good idea.: Several options are available, but none can be done at home. The most effective treatment, in my opinion, is laser abrasion, which smoothes out the edges of the scars to make them less visible. Find a dermatologist who has done lots and lots of them; you don't want a beginner doing this procedure. And you don't want to try it at home. ...Read more

What approaches work best to lighten acne scars with home remedies?

What approaches work best to lighten acne scars with home remedies?

Hyperpigmentation: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation may not respond well to hydroquinone (hq). Vitamin k oxides are purported to have some effect but I am not convinced. Kojic acid, licorice extract, bilberry extracts may help. I suggest trying test spots first. Use of "peel and bleach" creams (hq +retina +steroid) may be effective but require strict sunblock. ...Read more

What are some natural home remedies to help acne?

No: Forgive my frankness. This is the 21st century. No home acne treatment works. Whoever told you "natural is better" did you a major disservice. All acne is easily manageable with today's scientific rx. Benzoyl peroxide for starters; then get with your physician for a topical antibiotic and/or a retinoic acid derivative, or something systemic if you need it. You have a right to effective rx. Cheers. ...Read more

How to remove nail fungus using home remedies?

Maybe?: The reason you hear so many different treatments for toenail fungus is because there is no perfect, sure-fire treatment that works 100% of the time. I've seen vaporub work, as well as other natural oil remedies, but very rarely. You can also try laser therapy, antifungal creams, paints, or even oral medications if your doctor deems you healthy enough to take them. ...Read more

Can you share any home remedies for back acne scars (keloids)?

None will work: I am very sorry that you ended with keloidal acne scars. This didn't need to happen. If your family's devotion to "natural healing" caused them to neglect this serious and permanently disfiguring disease, i hope this will cause you to wise up and recognize how wrong they were not to get you a real rx. Get with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon -- it's likely they maybe able to help some. ...Read more

Are there any good home remedies to get rid of acne and lighten skin?

Are there any good home remedies to get rid of acne and lighten skin?

No: "Pop" remedies (lemon, honey) are cruel pranks. Topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated is your best over-the-counter treatment and will clear milder cases of acne. You should not be trying to lighten your skin -- you are likely to disfigure yourself like Michael Jackson did, and in the US (which sets trends worldwide), judging another by skin color is the height of ignorance. Embrace who you are. ...Read more

Are there any natural home remedies for acne scars?

No: The stuff you'll read about on the internet is just made up. For real acne scars, you'll need a dermatologist or plastic surgeon with microsurgery, a filler, or a laser.
