Acne can leave some persistent scars, here is how you can get rid of them using ingredients that are easily available at home.

Aspirin to the rescue
The salicylic acid in aspirin does wonders and its gritty texture gives you perfect exfoliation.

 

You will need two tbsp of honey, two or three aspirins and a few drops of water.

Make a paste out of the aspirin and water and to this add the honey. The gritty texture exfoliates the skin.

Apply on the scars and leave for 15 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.

Lemony pack
Vitamin C in lemon helps in rebuilding collagen.

When you use lime juice on your acne scars, the spots get lighter day by day.

Mix one tbsp of lemon juice, honey and almond oil in two tbsp of milk.

Apply this pack on the scars once daily for about 10 days.

After applying lemon juice, never ever step out in the sun!

The tomato mask
Red tomatoes can eliminate the scars from your face.

You will need two tomatoes, one cucumber and two avocados.

Make a pulp out of the tomatoes and to that pulp add the cucumber and avocado juice.

Apply this on your face and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes.

Wash your face with cold water afterwards.
