5 Easy Ways to Remove Acne Scars Naturally

I enjoy writing about natural and non-invasive health and beauty solutions.

Removing Acne Scars

If you are a fellow acne sufferer, then you don't need to be told how utterly traumatizing it can be. To add insult to injury, after all the unsightly breakouts, acne leaves scars as an ever-present reminder.

I've personally suffered from acne as far back as my early teens and I've picked up a fair amount of it along the way. So if your acne scarring isn't very deep, these methods—which worked for me—may work for you.

1. Egg Whites

Egg whites have very powerful health benefits that may aid in your scars' healing and eventually make them less visible. Egg whites are full of proteins and amino acids that can tighten the pores to prevent new breakouts while lightening the appearance of scarred skin.

How to Use Them

  • Take a small bowl and whip the whites of three eggs until they become fluffy and white.
  • Use your fingers to gently spread the egg whites on to your skin, concentrating on the problem areas.
  • Let the stuff dry on your skin and then rinse away gently with moderately warm water.
  • Do this 2–3 times a week.
Baking soda is a gentle abrasive that can help rid your face of dead skin cells.

2. Baking Soda

Baking soda is coarse but not that coarse—its small particles should not damage the skin. If applied correctly, it will gently slough off the top layer of dead skin cells without causing your sensitive facial skin to become irritated or inflamed.

How to Use It

  • Simply mix a small amount of baking soda with water to make a consistent paste.
  • Very gently massage this onto your skin and leave it on for one minute before rinsing it off with lukewarm water.
  • Remember to always moisturize your skin afterward; I massage a few drops of olive oil on my face and it works very well.
  • Repeat this 2–3 times a week depending on your exfoliation routine.
Lemon juice contains citric acid which can help boost your skin's collagen production.

3. Lemon Juice

Lemon juice contains citric acid which, along with lactic and glycolic acids, is one of the most commonly found alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs. AHAs are very well known for their cosmetic usage. Many skincare products, including anti-aging creams and chemical peels, have AHAs as key ingredients. The topical application of AHAs is said to induce increased collagen production and a thickening of the skin, both of which can contribute to the healing of scarred skin.

Additionally, lemon juice, due to its natural acidic content, is a powerful disinfectant that can help destroy acne-causing bacteria. It is also a natural exfoliant that can remove dead skin cells and facilitate the formation of new, healthy skin. Furthermore, it helps in lightening the skin tone which can counteract the effects of hyperpigmentation, another souvenir of your acne days.

How to Use It

  • Ensure that your skin is clean by washing it with a mild acne cleanser.
  • Squeeze 1–3 lemons into a bowl.
  • Take a cotton ball and dab it with the juice. Apply the juice to affected areas completely but don't overdo it.
  • Repeat this 2–3 times a week.

If you have sensitive skin, the juice may sting, but it will likely happen only the first couple of times. If the stinging accompanies significant redness, then discontinue usage because your skin is far too sensitive for this method. I have sensitive skin but it was bearable and the sensation did go away after the third application, so it's still a very workable solution for those with sensitive skin, but you need to pay attention to your skin's reaction.

Aloe vera can help your skin regenerate damaged tissue.

4. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera juice or gel is a fantastic way to remove acne scars. Not only does it soothe inflamed skin, but it also boosts the immune system and regenerates damaged tissue. Its mild acerbic qualities ensure that with regular usage, acne breakouts can be prevented, resulting in softer skin, decreased swelling, invigorated new cell growth, and a reduction in acne scars. Many in the cosmetic industry are recognizing the importance of this miracle plant and incorporating its extracts into their skin care products.

How to Use It

  • You can buy over-the-counter aloe products but I strongly recommend growing an aloe vera plant in your backyard (believe me, it isn't a hassle) or buy it in its all-natural form without additives.
  • Dab fresh aloe vera gel straight from the plant onto your skin on and around problem areas.
  • Let dry, then wash off.
  • Repeat this process 2–3 times per week.
Olive oil doesn't clog pores and is packed with healthy vitamins.

5. Olive Oil

Olive oil is packed with iron and vitamins A, D, E, C, B1, and B2. Vitamin E is increasingly being recognized as an important player in helping the fight against the aging process. Olive oil is rich in anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories, helps prevent acne, and removes acne scars effectively. Because olive oil is non-comedogenic (i.e. it doesn't clog pores) and effectively dissolves dirt and oil trapped within our already clogged pores, it is a good scar treatment.

How to Use It

  • Before going to bed, gently massage olive oil onto your skin, concentrating on the trouble spots.
  • Continue massaging for a few minutes till you can feel that your pores are completely saturated.
  • Drape a warm washcloth over your face to steam and hence open the pores.
  • Gently wipe away the excess oil.
  • Repeat the process 1–2 times before rinsing your face with cold water.

Closing Thoughts

I'm not a skin specialist of any kind. These are methods that I and a few of my friends have tried. Natural skin care methods come without any significant side-effects and are kind to your skin but the drawback is that it's going to take time.

Use any one of these methods at a time because you don't want to irritate your skin. The exception to this rule would be the aloe vera and the olive oil methods, because their gentle and strong healing properties may be combined with and complement the other methods.

Good luck in getting a clear, glowing, acne and scar-free skin.

Julia Grieb on January 04, 2017:

I have acne problem and I have been wanting to find a way to reduce the acne marks and scars, while treating acne at same time. I use proactiv and it has benzoyl peroxide. Normally fading mark agents such as Retinol seems to work opposite with benzoyl peroxide. It makes the mark darker. Dermelastic serum worked perfectly on my skin even using Proactiv. I simply apply it over Proactiv solutions and sleep overnight. My skin looks very refreshed and my acne marks are fading noticeably.

Peter Geekie from Sittingbourne on October 06, 2016:

Excellent article which I am pleased to see makes good use of natural ingredients.

These scars can be quite difficult to shift and often the only way is by using make-up.

kind regards Peter

joy julie businge on May 31, 2013:

thanks for the information i will try and use it.

Trish on May 12, 2013:

Glad to know that the use of Olive oil for the face is becoming popular now. I used to go to the dermatologist because of 3-4 pimples that was really bothering me. She prescribed tretinoin .025% and it worked really well but you need a heavy moisturizer because it is really drying. Now, i just use olive oil for whiteheads and blackheads and it works well for me.

I tried using baking soda once, and i did not like the effect on my face. Many people swear by it and I guess I'm just not one of them. Or maybe i did not do the process correctly.

mia on May 04, 2013:

hi. I'm a 2nd yr high school now. i have pimples since I was in grade 5. I'm so unhappy, because I can't really go outdoors with my friends due to my skin problem. i have acne scars.. :'( I really wan't to get rid of this problem, because I'm loosing my confidence,. I'm now shy meeting new people because they might tease me, because of my acne problem. do you think all of this will be effective for me? i'm also now afraid of using commercial products bucause, instead of removing/reducing my acne scars it just might make my face more missarable. i also have acne scars on my back and on my breast part. please help me.. :'((

Hgo on March 05, 2013:

It's not about the grammar. Geez, grammar nazis are not welcome here, it's about skin care.

Anyway. I tried baking soda and it works just fine just don't over do it, it'll irritate ur skin.

Hendra Anggrian on February 27, 2013:

I am currently trying the egg white method and I have several questions that I'll be glad if one of you would answer:

1. I took the white out of 2 eggs and put it in a bowl. I whipped it diligently for as many time I can remember but it won't transform to be as white as in the picture provided above. If it iss still clear, would it be less effective to be applied in our face?

2. out of 2 eggs I only used very few of them. Is it okay if I wrapped the bowl with plastic wrap and save it in my drawer so that I can still use it tommorow or the day after tommorow?

harry on February 16, 2013:

what do you prefer to use first in all of this?

Debs on February 15, 2013:

I wash my face daily with baking soda. From the first use my husband noticed a change and complimented me on my skin. Much more fool proof than oil washing which I was really nervous to try. I have acne, papules (small red bumps that never turn to white heads) cyst that are awfully painful, ugly and scarring, and blackheads , plus acne scars. Yup I'm a winner!! Yet within a week I could see a major difference in scars and white heads who? My scars were not magically gone but my skin was so much more supple and shinny that the scars were a lot less visible. Now due to the change in my skin texture they are starting to "fill in" and dark spots have faded. It felt like my skin was getting an oxygen treatment all day long. I went ahead and used a homemade toner/ astringent with apple cider vinegar, really watered down so as not to over kill my skin and olive oil after everything. Go ahead and use the olive oil. I know oily skin, plus oil? but it really works and makes your skin feel great.better than any expensive moisturizer because your skin absorbs it and all of the benefits instead of waiting for a greasy lotion to dry on your face . The first time I have had results and actual improvement in my skin not just suppressing or covering up the acne for once I actually feel like I have great skin. Grab yourself some cute containers and buy in bulk! You wont have to wait for results and it feels great to be in charge of your acne and skin care for once.

Benjie Lim on February 05, 2013:

May i ask, will i do this all this methods on 1 day or do i have to choose what to use? and may you suggest a method that can help me, i have a a mild acne scars with medium deep scars... i would like to get rid of this and have a good and healthy skin. please email me at

Claudia on February 04, 2013:

4 me aloe vera and eggwhite r the best i shuld say so tank you sooo much god bless u!

Nandy on January 11, 2013:

I used lemon juice on my facial skin and it remains to b something that I regret doing the most! :(

Asidey16 on January 08, 2013:

I would like to also add Honey is a great moisturizer. For the past week ( every other day), I have done the baking soda scrub in the shower, then cleaned my face with my usual face wash. Once I get out, I apply lemon juice to the blackhead prone areas and put honey all over as a mask. Let it set for 5 mins and rinse with cool water. The honey is enough, that I don't have to add anything to my usually dry skin! Just in this week alone, I can tell a difference and so can the hubby. I put on just chapstick to go run an errand and he asked me why did I put on makeup? That was a huge complaint to me!

ruchi chandra on December 16, 2012:

I started using egg white with lemon juice..after 4 week i saw different on my face ,my pimples nd acne scars removed......its really works.

GJ on December 10, 2012:

Hi there, your article was really informative. It's good to know that most of these treatments were actually applied by you, unlike some articles that claim these things work but provide no proofs. I am definitely gonna use some of these remedies, maybe switch b/w egg whites, aloe vera gel n lemon for my backacne. I've never suffered from this prob before until a yr ago when I went through a surgery.

In fact, I started using Olive Oil as a moisturizer a couple of days ago before coming across this article and was surprised to know that this actually and might possibly work in reducing acne scars. But does it really matter what kind of Olive Oil you use? There are so many kinds to choose from like Virgin, Extra Virgin, Cold-pressed... so I just wanted to know which one would be more beneficial because I was thinking Cold-pressed.



Alpesh on December 10, 2012:

Can I use lemon & olive oil at same time

Kyou Capps from In your computer, stealing your internet. on December 08, 2012:

Interesting hub. I would have never thought to use egg whites or lemons as an acne treatment.

Serena Stephen from Prague, Czech Republic on December 08, 2012:

Thanks for your hub. I have acne issues and the olive oil treatment works. I have been doing it about 2 months now. It is slower than the chemical creams, but I get the feeling that the effect will last longer. I think the bleaching chemicals bleach the skin quickly but if you stop using the product then you are back where you started. I feel that these natural remedies provide a lasting and safe way to help our skin issues.

I would suggest in addition to using a warm towel to steam, to actually steam with water. To boil some water and place in a bowl, put a towel over you head and let your face absorb the steam for around 10 minutes then rinse with cold water to close the pores.

How do u use the aloe Vera?

boneclinx690 (author) from Neverland on December 01, 2012:

Thank You people for the comments, I appreciate it ! :)

Okay it appears that two questions keep popping up :

(1) Will they remove your scars completely ?

Ans : No ! Nothing will...not even laser from the talk I've had with dermatologists. What they'd do is that they'd reduce their appearance to an acceptably low level. For example, my own, scars aren't that visible anymore unless someone makes a point of barging into my face & then inspecting them. Nothing...I say again - Nothing, will remove acne scars permanently !

The reason I'd recommend natural remedies in favor of some of the other options out there is that they're cheap, they do take time but they work as well & they, as a general rule, don't have side-effects.

(2) Can I use all of them at once ?

Ans - No..don't ! I repeat DON'T use all of them at once; in fact start with Aloe Vera or Olive Oil & that too lightly, before going for the other options (especially Baking Soda). You do not want to irritate your skin to the point it reacts by you either having red inflamed skin or a break-out ! So ease it in & remember ! REMEMBER : Nothing is as good a judge of whether something is working for you or not & whether you should continue or not, than your OWN skin ! So listen to it. Start out slow & then build it up...this isn't a sprint its a marathon & its going to take time so ease yourself into it.

pogi on November 27, 2012:

can i mix all the five ways all at once?? because my pimple scars is so serious and very severe and it makes me to lessen my self confidence.. and the discrimination is there.. sometimes it comes to my mind that the easiest way is to finish my life..

shirley on November 16, 2012:

can i put on aloe vera overnight?

siti on October 07, 2012:

i think out of your 5 i would say for me the egg whites ,lemon and baking soda works best ..i haven't tried olive oil or aloe vera because i have sensitive oily-combination skin and i live in the tropic .i am 18 years old turning 19 soon .i cant stay outside so much because of the UV-light some people did offer and advice me to wear a few skin care product and sunscreen but again ,most of them just irritate my skin and cause more acne to pop out of my face .i always have difficultly of using skin care product and im barely compatibly to most of them ,i cant wear make-up because i also get irritation .

before i actually went to the dermatologist (this doesn't help much )because of a bad reaction towards a skin care product i was diagnose by the doctor that i have acne vulgaris ? so they perscribe me with antibiotic .which after 6 moths of treatment left me back to how i was when i was 12 fulll of acne scar on my face .i actually used these before when i was 16 and it worked very well ,except i didn't whip my egg white and i only use one egg .i just refrigerate the egg and separate and let it soaked on tissue paper that i would place on my face for 15 min or until it is dry (slightly damp) i do this at least once a week and and after you remove the tissue paper and wash your face it's better to take an ice cube and rub it across your face . i learn that trick from the internet and it works wonder . i wore mask at least twice a week .three days seperation .and i wore the baking soda mask once a month but for only 30 seconds duration . the lemon juice i only used when i break out and i just drop them directly on top of the acne and wash it away after 1 min .im very high maintenance but i just have to since all odd are not in my favour . after reading your article maybe i would try olive oil . now im using aloe vera but it for the after sun screen it moisturise my skin .i used it at night before i sleep .i hope this helps in a way just sharing my opinion :D

rj on September 30, 2012:

i know you said lemons but will limes work as well?

Rey on September 27, 2012:

tanveer on September 24, 2012:

Can I just share that if you squeeze some lemon and a spoon on honey, then mix it and apply it actually works better.

wong on September 21, 2012:

hi, thanx for sharing.

Aloe Vera juice is to drink or apply on the acne area? thx..

boneclinx690 (author) from Neverland on September 16, 2012:

@ vVs - I really don't know what the difference between the two is so I can't comment on that. Maybe it'll work...maybe it won't ! Its best if you try it out on a fairly little area and see how the skin responds.

@ reef : Don't ! I repeat 'Don't' use all 3 of them at once ! That will irritate the heck out of your skin; go slow ! Go one step at a time and if something works stick with it instead of changing just for the sake of it. Above all listen to the skin ! No article is a substitute for what it says.

@ ryan : It varies ! I've always had irritable skin so I don't usually go for that but when I do I try to keep it under 15 minutes. Others often apply it and then sleep on it so I suppose you'd have to find out what works for you ! Apply it on a small area and see how the skin responds and even then start very slowly. If it burns...stop ! Go back and try it yet slower still and if that persists then move onto the next remedy (and the Baking Soda thing probably isn't for you if the Lemon burns).

I've been using The Dr Max Powers Scar Serum on acne scars for several months now. I've had several compliments! It has greatly improven skin appearance and I continue to use it because it also seems to keep my skin clear. I use it mainly on my cheeks in the morning and at night. A little goes a loooong way.

Could u use baking powder instead of baking soda???? as some say they both are the same thing but others say that the amount of sodium bicarbonate is not pure in baking powder like in soda?

hey! Thank you so much! i tried the Egg white mask ASAP after i read this blog of yours. after i placed foamy egg white all over my face, it hardened fast. after that, i washed my face with lukewarm water..and TARAAA! my face looked more smoother, my acne marks still there but remarkably better, my pores way tighter and smaller!..yey! i'll do it again tomorrow and maybe 3 days after... it's way better than applying ice to minimize pores! Thank u! next, i'll go with the lemon one and the baking soda as maintenance... I am so acne-prone so this is soo useful!..thank u! God bless! XOXO
