Acne Scar Removal Face Mask

Acne scar removal face mask - Dr. Axe
Having acne is no picnic, for not only does one suffer from the embarrassing current state of their skin … but often it can leave behind nasty scars for a lifetime. Unfortunately, in search for how to get rid of scars, most rush to the nearest drugstore for ineffective topical medications or get dangerous prescription drugs that are often equally useless.

I advise you to first address the numerous causes —clogged pores, bacteria, excess oil production, hormones, diet, stress and certain medications — of acne, which you can read about in my home remedies for acne article.

Next, to address the unsightly scars that can form, try my acne scar removal face mask. Relying on essential oils for acne — such as tea tree, frankincense and helichrysum essential oils — it’s a careful blend of powerful ingredients meant to naturally reduce scarring. Apply every day for about eight days, but discontinue if you notice any discomfort.
