Home Remedy for Acne & Pit Marks on the Skin
Deep acne marks and scars on the face often result after moderate to severe acne begins and can be very embarrassing for people of all ages. However, there are some home remedies that combine natural ingredients to help soothe and eliminate deep acne scars and marks on the surface of the skin, according to Julia Lawless, author of "The Encyclopedia of Essential Oils: The Complete Guide to The Use of Aromatic Oils In Aromatherapy, Herbalism, Health and Well Being."
Mix ½ tsp. galbanum essential oil, ½ tsp. lavender essential oil, ½ tsp. violet essential oil, ¼ tsp. rosewood essential oil, ¼ tsp. rose essential oil and ¼ cup coconut oil in a small, dark-colored bottle.
Cover the bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Shake the mixture to thoroughly combine the essential oils with the coconut oil.
Pour a very small amount of the oil mixture onto your fingers. Gently massage the oil onto the affected area for four to five minutes.
Leave the essential oil mixture on the skin for 20 minutes. Do not allow the skin to come into contact with materials that could absorb the oil, like clothing or blankets.
Rinse your skin with lukewarm water and pat it dry with a clean cotton towel.
Wash with a gentle cleanser and pat dry before applying your regular moisturizer.
Use this treatment once per day as long as necessary. Discontinue use if redness, swelling or any other type of irritation occurs.
Store unused portions of the essential oil mixture in a dark, cool place for up to one month. Always make sure the top is on tightly before putting the mixture away.
