Natural ways to get rid of acne scars?

No such thing: I'm sorry, Heather. If you have acne scars because your family didn't allow you to be treated by a scientific physician out of superstitious preference for "natural medicine", you have my deepest sympathy. An evidence-based dermatologist or plastic surgeon can offer you treatment with laser, microsurgery, and/or fillers. Nothing you do alone, or anything you can buy from an herbalist, will help. ...Read more

They won't work: Listen, friend. You're 19 years old and about to start up professional life. Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related disease that will be a major liability if you don't start taking care of it.

Let your physician, not some internet anti-science stuff, manage your illness. ...Read more

Forgive my frankness: Whoever has told you that "natural is good, everything else is bad" has done you a disservice. Vitamins / supplements work for other entities but are only placebos here. Benzoyl peroxide is nature's own oxygen within a naturally-occurring molecule. Topical Clindamycin and systemic antibiotics are both nature's gifts, and the oral contraceptive pill may clear a young woman. Be savvy & good luck. ...Read more

If you have a mess of pimples at a job interview & say you "don't believe in pills", what will happen? Take advantage of the 21st century. ...Read more

Why not real Rx?: Even in today's insane health-care system, you can get something that works. I start with topical clindamycin, plus benzoyl peroxide if there aren't a lot of blackheads or a retinoic acid derivative if there are. A woman is often cleared by the oral contraceptive pill. If it's harder to manage, i add a systemic antibiotic appropriate for the person. Dermatologists have the big guns. Good luck. ...Read more
