Acne is a very common and often very stubborn skin condition to deal with. This does not mean that you need some exotic remedies to get rid of the pimples or even the telltale scars left behind when the acne finally heals. We asked a Singapore acne removal treatment expert whether it is possible to make some effective remedies at home and use these to reduce the appearance of acne scarring and they offered two suggestions: tomato and lemon, items you most likely have in the kitchen fridge at this very moment. Here is a look at each one of these remedies and how you can use them as well.
Slices of Tomato
Tomato is a vegetable which has some excellent healing powers. This is because it contains some important antioxidants such as carotene which gives it the red color. The tomato also contains vitamin A which helps in promoting regrowth of damaged tissue. To use tomato as a remedy for acne scars is easy. All you need is a couple of freshly sliced tomato pieces. Apply the freshly cut surface directly on the scarred skin daily and, within a fortnight, you should start noticing marked improvement in the appearance.
Lemon contains an organic acid called citric acid. This works as a form of mild bleach, gradually making the discolored acne scars fade off. Just squeeze out some juice from a lemon and use your fingers to apply it evenly over the scarred skin. Other than the acid, the lemon fruit has vitamin C which helps in building collagen which repairs broken tissue.
