Carrot Top Facial Mask(normal oily skin)By: Pioneer Thinking The Ingredients The Instructions2-3 large carrots4 1/2 tapoesblons honeyCook carrots, then mash. Mix with honey. Apply gently to the skin, wait 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. MY FAVORITE A plain baking soda and water mask is by far the best you can do for acne prone skin. Mix a water and baking soda in a cup until the consistancy of a thinner paste. Pat on face (do not rub) and let sit till it hardens then rinse off. This has done miracles for my sensitive acne prone skin!! Plus it's all natural! Sometimes I add a few drops of tea tree oil too. You can use this every other day,FOR SCARSVitamin E Try applying vitamin E to the scarred area three to four times daily to help reduce its visibility. If you keep at it, you should see some results after one to two weeks. It takes a long time before you get really noticeable effects. Honey and pearl A useful facial pack for acne is honey and pearl powder. Apply a mask of it for 15 minutes. If you can keep doing it every week, your skin will become lighter and smoother. Tea tree oil Some medications made from natural ingredients, such as rosehip seed oil and tea tree oil, will not only help to heal scars, but also significantly work to prevent future scarring.LeeksPeel the membrane from white are of the leek while watching TV or resting. Place a peeling over scarred areas for ten minutes every day. You can secure it with a bandage to keep it from falling off. Keep this up for a few weeks and you'll see the color fade awayGinger After cleaning your skin, cut a few slices of fresh ginger and apply to the affected area for 20 minutes. You'd better do this laying down, otherwise the ginger may fall off. It might burn a little, but probably not too much. The ginger may leave behind a bit of redness after you removeit, but don't be too worried. Just wipe off and have a good rest. In the morning, the scar should become smooth, and will hopefully fade completely within two weeks. The best treatment is prevention. You should try to prevent acne from ever forming. Below are some ways to reign in the red bumps: Include green, leafy vegetables and fruits in your diet. Drink a lot of water to to regularly to flush out toxins, and don't forget to drink a glass before breakfast to flush out the stomach. Avoid deep-fried snacks. Resist the urge to pop your pimples. It can cause even more damage to the skin and worsen scarring. Resist the temptation! Lastly, don' expect scars to vanish overnightHOPE THIS HELPS YOU OUTPS ALOE VERA PLANT HELPS ACNE AND SCARS VERY MUCHChange your bedsheets and pillow covers often. Those areas are like magnets for dead cells, dander, mites and dust all of which can cause an acne breakut. Some skin experts even recommend changing pillow cases daily.
