Massage Your Face

Massaging your face is an excellent way to stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps clear out toxins and other debris that may be causing inflammation. It also helps to improve circulation by moving stagnant blood through the skin's capillaries.

Massage your face for at least 3 minutes per day with your fingertips in small circles on both sides of your nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead--anywhere you have acne scars or discoloration caused by scarring. You can also use Gua Sha to help bring back circulation to your skin. There are a lot of tutorials you can follow online. You can even massage your neck if you're feeling ambitious! Be gentle at first: start by applying light pressure with the tips of your fingers and gradually increase it until you reach a level that feels comfortable but firm enough so that it doesn't hurt (which would cause more damage).

After massaging for several weeks or months depending on how severe your scars are initially, they should begin fading away as new collagen begins forming underneath damaged tissue surface layers thanks to increased microcirculation levels caused by increased blood flow due to regular massage sessions every day (or whenever possible).

Use a Gentle Cleanser

Use a gentle cleanser in the morning and the evening. A good cleanser should be mild and free of harsh chemicals, which can irritate the skin and make acne worse. Look for one that contains salicylic or glycolic acid (or both) to reduce redness, as well as ingredients like sulfur or tea tree oil that help fight bacteria in the pores.

Try using an exfoliant 2-3 times per week. An exfoliator helps slough away dead skin cells so they don't clog your pores, but it's important not to overdo it--use only once or twice per week at most! Avoid scrubs with large beads or brushes; their rough texture can irritate if used too often on sensitive areas such as around blemishes and scars.

Exfoliate 2 to 3 Times per Week

Exfoliate 2 to 3 Times per Week

Exfoliation is a process in which the top layer of skin is removed and replaced with new cells. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells, dirt, and oil, which can clog pores and cause acne. The two main ways to exfoliate are mechanical (by scrubbing or physically removing them) or chemical (by using products containing acids).

The best time to exfoliate is 2-3 times per week. If you are using an abrasive physical product such as a scrub or sponge, be sure not to overdo it! Your face should not feel raw after using these types of products; if it does then you are likely scrubbing too hard.

Use a Moisturizer With Spf Every Day

Every day, apply a moisturizer with SPF. The sun can damage your skin and cause wrinkles, but it also affects acne scars. UV rays are known to increase inflammation in the skin which leads to breakouts. This is why it's important to use a daily moisturizer with SPF (at least 30). The SPF protects against sun damage and prevents further inflammation of your existing acne scars.

If you are looking for a natural way to heal acne scars, these remedies can be a great place to start. They will help reduce inflammation and promote the healing of damaged tissue. If you have tried everything else with no success, then it might be time for some alternative methods!
