Overview

According to AmericanChronicle, acne scarring forms just as any other type of injury creates scars. Factors such as skin type, genetics and age all play a part in how prominent a scar will be. Acne scars will either be raised--called keloids--or depressed. Keloids are the formation of a growth of scar tissues. Depressed scars are more common and are named by the shape of their depressions such as ice pick, boxcar or rolling scars. PIH--post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation--is the body's process of natural repair. This will last up to two years after the initial scarring.

Step 1

Measure out two parts water, one part oatmeal. Mix in a cooking pot. Oatmeal will cleanse the skin of oil and exfoliate the pores.

Step 2

Heat the pot over medium to low heat. Add the juice of a lemon while stirring. Lemon juice is a natural bleach that will help fade the acne scars.

Step 3

Take the pot off of the stove and allow the ingredients to cool. Mix in a generous amount of manuka honey. The antibacterial composition of the honey combined with its ability to create an air tight seal, accelerate the healing process in new wounds and scarring when applied topically.

Step 4

Apply the face mask and leave it on for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

Step 5

Rinse off the mask. Gently dry your face with a towel and apply a moisturizer with a sunscreen.
