After the pimples are gone, a new problem now appears: black acne scars. As with acne, black spots and acne scars will interfere with your appearance. Moreover, black spots and acne scars require a long time to heal. Fortunately, there are many ways to get rid of these black spots. You can do the home tips below using everyday ingredients that are easily available.
1. Lemon mask
Lemon juice has a natural acidity that has been hereditary used as an organic whitening agent to remove black spots on the skin. All you have to do is squeeze the lemon and drink the juice every day, in the morning and evening. Lemon water will break down toxins and fats that settle in the body, making the skin look radiant healthy from the inside.
You can also use a cotton ball dipped in lemon water and apply it directly to the problem area twice a day. Let the lemon water absorb well for 30 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with cold water. Do not immediately move outdoors with lemon juice residue that is still attached to the face because it can increase the sensitivity of the skin and cause the skin to burn.
Still using lemon, you can make tomato juice and add lemon juice and apply the mixture as a face mask. Let the mask dry for 20 minutes then rinse with warm water.
To disguise blemishes and simultaneously relieve inflammation from persistent acne, you can make a roughly mashed cucumber face mask with a mixture of lemon juice. Let the mask dry then rinse with warm water.
Make sure you use fresh lemon and not ready-to-use packaged juices that you can buy at the supermarket.
2. Honey yogurt mask
Honey yogurt masks contain whitening agents that work like lemons. Mix 2 teaspoons of plain yogurt, 1 teaspoon of honey, and 1-2 teaspoons of oatmeal porridge. Apply this face mask every night before going to bed for 10 -15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Yogurt honey masks are also good for those of you who have dry skin because both of these compositions are moisturizing to the skin.
3. Lavender and rose oil
These two essential oils will smooth out the acne scars and disguise black spots. Rose oil also functions to counteract premature aging, by smoothing wrinkles and encouraging regeneration of skin cells. Apply your chosen essential oil to the entire face and massage slowly. Do it twice a day for the best results.
Shallots contain high antibacterial agents to help erode black spots and acne scars. Chop the shallots and puree to take the juice. Apply the onion mask evenly to the entire face and leave for a few minutes until it dries. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
