Many people have asked me how to get rid of Acne Scars using Natural remedies or can we reduce it or not.
Can Acne Scars be reduced using Natural remedies.
The answer is : Yes
Breakouts can come and go, but the scars they leave behind can linger for years. The main reason for having black stains and spots on the face is the excessive bleeding of melanin in the skin. Apart from this there are also other factors which contributes to your acne scars such as staying in sunlight for too much time, pregnancy, hormonal imbalance, vitamin deficiency, not getting enough sleep, excessive depression, taking medicines, eating junk food, spending too much time in dust and many others.
Many sufferers spends a lot of money on chemical creams, oral medications, laser therapy, and many more. Although these methods provides fast and immediate results, yet these also carry long list of side effects.
