Full Answer

  1. Rub tea tree oil gel on the acne scar

    Since it is quite difficult to get tea tree oil from the plant itself, gels that contain this natural ingredient are good substitutes. Consider gels that contain 5 percent tea tree oil for best results.

  2. Use vinegar to get rid of dead skin

    Vinegar helps get rid of the outer layer of the skin, which contains dead cells caused by acne or skin irritation. The elimination of dead skin paves the way for the growth of fresh and healthy new skin cells. For best results, dip a clean piece of cloth or cotton wool into vinegar, and rub it gently across the scars on your face.

  3. Apply lemon to lighten scars

    This technique eliminates acne scars by lightening them. Slice the lemon into two or four equal parts, and rub it gently on the scar. Do not use this procedure if you have open wounds on your face. Alternatively, squeeze the juice out of the lemon, mix it with water and wash your face with the mixture using a clean face towel.
