Well, having gone through the rigors of fighting acne scars myself, I understand that, having a spotless scar-free face is a huge amplification of beauty for most people. Here are some tips on how to clear acne and post-acne scars:

  1. Avoid Acne Scars in the first place: Before you roll your eyes at this, hear me out. Prevention is indeed better and way easier than cure. You can avoid acne scars by paying more attention to your skin when the acne pops up.


  • Treat your acne as soon as you notice them
  • Get professional help if you can’t handle it yourself
  • If acne persists, well book an appointment with an esthetician or a doctor.


  • Do not pick at it
  • Do not scratch any developing acne
  • Do not ignore it

I have some simple tips for those of us who may be on a lean budget. If you aren’t ready to try out any beauty acne clearing products just yet or if you are wondering about something that works well and also saves costs, here’s my Three DIY tips for clearing acne:

DIY Tip 1:

Ingredients: Aloe vera and Water

Step by steps:

  • Wash your hands before you begin
  • Cut open an aloe vera leaf and scoop the gel

Why it works: aloe vera contains antibacterial and helps clear off the spot

Apply 1 to 2 times daily for maximum results.

DIY Tip 2:

Step by steps:

  • Squeeze out your lemon juice
  • Add honey (in equal amounts as the lemon juice) 
  • Apply on the scars with a cotton round
  • Leave for 10 minutes

Why it works: Lemon is a natural brightener (Note; honey is not compulsory) – REMEMBER: Lemon is acidic – Please use with extreme caution

DIY Tip 3:

Ingredients: Baking Soda

Step by step:

  • add two teaspoons of baking soda into a bowl

Why it works: Baking soda is a very good exfoliant.

Apply once per week for a minimum of 3 weeks for maximum results. – If you choose to do this, please do it with extreme caution… Some use this once per day for a minimum of 3 weeks. I prefer 1x per week
