No one wants to live with acne, and especially the acne scar remnants. We saw the different types of acne scars in my previous post. These acne scars can affect anyone post-puberty and can last for weeks or even months. Some people turn to laser treatment to get rid of their acne scars but this just isn’t feasible for some people.

Here are some other methods of how to get rid of acne scars.

Acne Treatments

It’s difficult to find treatment for acne scars because there are very few products out there that specifically mention they treat acne scars. Most of them will instead just make vague references to it and suggest they brighten your skin and similar things. One acne treatment that does specifically mention it can treat acne scars is Clean and Clear. It’s a powerful anti-acne treatment that can also help deal with those pesky post-breakout marks and scars.

Bio Oil


Bio Oil is one of those “all in one treatments” that promises to fix just about everything wrong with your skin. It advertises that it can help heal scars, remove stretch marks, correct uneven skin tone, alleviate aging skin, and moisturise dehydrated skin. Whether it can do all of that or not is up for debate but it’s very effective at treating hyperpigmentation (acne scars) and if it’s as good at treating everything else it promises to do then you can’t go wrong.

All Natural Papaya Turmeric Grapefruit Skin Lightening Mask

One of the best products out there for treating acne scars is the  All Natural Papaya Turmeric Grapefruit Skin Lightening Mask that I really like. You can buy it on amazon. com.

One of the things that’s so great about it is how quickly it works. Just apply the mask for around 20 minutes before you go to bed and take it off. Give the mask a little time to sink in and you’ll see that the marks begin to fade by the time you remove the mask. By the time you wake up your face skin will be really improve.

Vitamin C

Vitamins are good for just about everything in the body with each vitamin having something it’s particularly good at. Vitamin C is great at brightening your skin and, if used properly, is incredible at removing redness. One of the best vitamin C beauty products on the market is the Peter Thomas Roth mask. They make it using the camu camu berry; which is purported to have 30x the amount of vitamin C as an orange. Whether that’s true or not it doesn’t change the fact that this is one of the most powerful vitamin C products for fading acne scars.
