    drastic change is expensive but gradual lightening is cheaper. Maybe using extra virgin olive oil and shea butter alternately is a good thing. Some creams may also help.

    1. Lots of people use ice cubes to get rid of their acne scars at home. Wrap an ice cube in a piece of cloth and rub it on affected areas for 10 to 15 minutes every day. This should lessen the inflammation on your skin, making it look smoother. This is one of the best natural acne treatment.

    2. Aloe Vera is a commonly used natural remedy to cure acne scars. The Aloe Vera plants are famous for their magically ability to help heal scars and wounds. The juice of the Aloe Vera is very useful for helping to heal acne scars as well as to fight breakouts when they do occur. By applying the juice on a regular basis, you can erase the signs of bad acne over time.

    3. Cucumber is great for helping to keep the skin smooth and supple. Many different cosmetic beauty products often have cucumber as a key ingredient. Also Indian gooseberry lotions and creams are great for reducing acne scaring and outbreaks.
