Natural honey is an effective cure of acne scars because of its potent antibiotic properties. Besides, honey is a natural antioxidant with powerful osmotic effects. These properties combine with its osmotic nature and acidity to kill acne-causing bacteria. The use of honey to treat acne dates back to the ancient times.
Apart from treating the acne scars, honey clears the redness that is caused by acne because of its anti-inflammatory properties. As a strong antioxidant, natural honey mends the damage on the skin that is caused by free radicals.
The following are the steps of how to get rid of acne scars naturally with honey.
Mix approximately 2 table spoons of your natural honey with about 1 table spoon of baking soda. Ensure that you stir the mixture effectively until you get a perfectly fine result. Combining honey with baking soda makes it more effective in treating acne scars. For the best results, use clean, raw, unpasteurized and unprocessed honey.
Add 1 teaspoon of pure olive oil to the mixture and continue to stir until the result is visibly fine. Olive oil has natural therapeutic properties that are particularly effective in healing various skin conditions. The combined effect of natural honey, olive oil and baking soda yields faster healing of acne scars and promotes the general health of the skin.
Massage the mixture on the skin with particular attention on the areas that are most affected by the acne scars.
It is recommended to do a gentle massage in circular motions for about five minutes. For the best results, it is important to perform the therapeutic massage on a wet skin. The massage should last between 3 and 5 minutes.
Let the mixture stay on your face for about 5 or ten minutes while covering it with a warm and clean wash cloth. You should then proceed to wash off the mixture with warm water and soap. Natural honey is an effective moisturizer, which you need to maintain a supple and healthy face. Repeat the process once every day until the scars disappear.
Usually, using honey to massage a face scarred by acne is one of the most effective therapeutic practices that begin to show great results within days. Consistency and sticking to the right measurements is all you need to get a perfect face.
Natural therapists recommend that the process should also entail adding honey to your routine diet as a complementary strategy to the practice.
