Beauty Tip # 46: Gentle Acne Scar Treatment

This Gentle Acne Scar Treatment is a mix of honey, nutmeg and aloe vera, each of these ingredients help in gently reducing acne scars over time. Eventually your scars should fade and become unnoticeable. Do not expect this remedy to work fast, because this is a slow working, but effective method. It won’t miraculously make your scars disappear, but there should be a noticeable difference after a month of regular use. The nutmeg is the  powerful ingredient in this mix, the honey mellows it and aloe adds a support to its function.

The Ingredients

This Gentle Acne Scar Treatment has the following Ingredients:

  • Nutmeg
  • Honey
  • Aloe Vera

Why Nutmeg?

This spice has some really good beauty enhancing properties:

  • Nutmeg is popular in the natural beauty world for its skin lightening properties
  • One of the amazing beauty benefits of nutmeg is its ability to even out discolorations and pigmentation on your face.
  • Nutmeg has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that make it excellent in clearing up acne breakouts.
  • Nutmeg clears up blemishes and dark spots.
  • Nutmeg powder has a slight abrasive texture that makes it good for gentle skin exfoliation.
  • Nutmeg fades acne scars.
  • Reduces oiliness in skin.
  • It is a powerful antioxidant that fights off free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for causing premature wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Tones your face and improves your complexion

Caution: Nutmeg is a strong spice and some people may have an adverse reaction to applying it on the skin. To be sure that it won’t negatively affect you, perform a patch test 24 before using the remedy. Use a pinch of nutmeg, mix with a little honey to test on your skin.

Why Honey?

The Honey has properties which help to purify the skin:

  • Honey cleans out impurities from skin pores.
  • Honey is naturally antiseptic; it has healing and soothing properties.
  • Honey is a humectant so it moisturises, prevents wrinkles and soothes and heals dry patches.
  • Honey helps in reducing acne scarring.
  • It also has brightening properties.

Why Aloe Vera Gel?

The Gel is very beneficial for the skin:

  • Aloe Vera gel has two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These have wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that diminish skin inflammation.
  • The antibacterial properties of aloe vera gel are very effective in treating acne and reducing the redness caused by it.
  • The anti-fungal properties also fight any swollen pimples.
  • It fights ageing as it contains several antioxidants some of which are, vitamin C, beta carotene and Vitamin E that enhance the skin’s natural firmness.
