Sandalwood powder is a home remedy that assists in fading acne scars, dark spots and blemishes. Using a paste made of 1 teaspoon of sandalwood powder, 1 teaspoon of turmeric and 4 to 5 drops of rosewater twice a week slowly treats acne scars and can prevent further acne outbreaks, according to the FitandHappy website.
Sandalwood is an herb that soothes skin while helping to fade scars. The spice turmeric is antibacterial and helps to remove excessive oil build-up, preventing future acne outbreaks. Refreshing rosewater cleanses and hydrates skin. The NewHealthGuide website recommends adding glycerin, milk or honey to the sandalwood paste for an additional soothing treatment.
