Do you cringe a little each time you look at yourself in the mirror? Is it because you have stubborn acne scars on your face, ruining your appearance?

Having any kind of blemishes or spots on your skin can make your skin tone look unhealthy and uneven.

Acne scars are the worst of them because they take years to fade away and many a times, they may just become something you might have to live with.

And nobody wants a lifetime with these ugly blemishes on the face. It can be a huge blow to one's self-esteem.

In extreme cases, where the acne scars are very prominent and deep set, even makeup may not help cover them up.

Acne scars usually develop when people suffer from cystic acne caused by hormonal changes that erode the surface of the skin, forming uneven "pits" or hollowed patches.

Sometimes, people go in for cosmetic procedures like laser treatment or chemical peels to help make their complexions smooth and free from acne scars.

However, if you are looking for a natural remedy, try this potato and baking soda face pack, which is very effective!

Recipe To Prepare The Face Pack

Ingredients Required:

  • Baking Soda - 1 tablespoon 
  • Potato Juice - 2 tablespoons
  • Lime Juice - 2 teaspoons

Baking soda is a popular natural skin-exfoliating agent that can scrub away the dead cell layer present on your skin, giving you a smoother and a more even complexion.

As acne scars are present on the outer layer of your skin, regular exfoliation with baking soda can help reduce them to a considerable extent.

Potato juice is another natural ingredient that can help eliminate any kind of blemishes, pigmentation and scars present on your skin, as the starch content in potatoes helps in rejuvenating the skin cells.

Lime juice is a natural bleaching agent that can lighten your skin and also make it appear smoother and clearer by eliminating the impurities.
