How to Be Rid of Acne Scars and Redness

Highschool may be the first thing you think of when you hear the word “acne,” but for many, it carries with them into adulthood, whether in the form of adult acne or scars. Whether you are an adolescent or adult with acne, you are no doubt interested in reducing the redness that accompanies it. We’d like to share some natural tips to accomplish the reduction of redness.

Stop the Spending

First, we encourage you to stop spending tons of money on overpriced acne gels and creams that can be harsh on your skin. Instead, do research on what is causing your acne. Is it your diet? Age? Activities? Lax hygiene routine? Any of these and more can contribute to acne and its redness. A few recommendations for home remedies are:

  • aloe vera
  • tea tree oil

The combined use of these two substances can help lessen the swelling of your acne, reducing the redness surrounding them and making your acne less noticeable. Tea tree oil is an excellent antiseptic, and aloe soothes.

Know What You’re Eating: and what it does to you

Understanding which foods can contribute to acne and redness is crucial to healing. Articles that are:

  • high in sugar
  • filled with animal fats

can make you even more susceptible to acne. Try replacing such food items with:

  • veggies
  • fruits

You’ll be amazed at the impact. Zinc supplements can also reduce breakouts.
