Here’s how men can cure their stubborn acne scars
Not just women but even men often find it challenging to keep their skin free of acne, blemishes and pimples. And the most difficult challenge is to get rid of those ugly marks. Acnes erupt for various reasons, including hormonal changes, unhealthy diet, etc. And when they go untreated or mishandled, acnes leave dark and stubborn marks on the skin. But how can men, who have thicker facial skin than women, get rid of these stains? Read on to know more.
One can adopt various methods to lighten the marks left behind by acne. Men can benefit significantly from using natural face packs to remove blemishes, patches, and dead skin cells to incorporating other simple techniques. Face packs help exfoliate the skin and keep it free of germs. Moreover, they help lighten the marks left behind by acne, pimples and blisters.
For example, the following home remedies can work wonders when done routinely.
Turmeric, milk and honey pack
For preparing this face rub, you would need a pinch of turmeric, two teaspoons of raw milk and one spoonful of honey. Rub this mixture gently on your face and leave for about 10-15 minutes. Turmeric will help lighten dark patches and honey will help prevent pigmentation, and milk will hydrate your skin.
Cucumber and aloe vera pack
Make a puree of a small cucumber and add one teaspoon of fresh aloe vera pulp. Mix these two ingredients well and apply this paste to your face. Let it rest for fifteen to twenty minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water.
Gram flour, turmeric and curd face pack
A spoonful of gram flour, curd and a pinch of honey is enough to make this face pack. This mixture helps in keeping skin oil-free and nourishes and moisturises it. In addition, gram flour removes excess oil, turmeric shields the skin from germs, and curd keeps it hydrated.
Lemon and honey rub
Take about a teaspoon of lemon juice and a teaspoon of honey. Apply this mixture evenly to the face and rub it gently in a circular motion. Honey cleanses skin pores, while lemon works as a natural astringent.
Multani Mitti and milk pack
Multani Mitti is one of the best natural cleansing and lightening agents. Take about 1-2 teaspoons of multani mitti and add about 4-5 teaspoons of milk. Multani mitti removes excess oil from the skin and lightens it while milk cleanses the pores.
Potato juice and rice flour
Grate one potato and extract the juice. Now use a brush to evenly apply the extract onto your skin. You may also focus specifically on the affected area. Let the juice rest on your skin for fifteen minutes. Then use a spoonful of rice flour to gently scrub your skin. Rinse with lukewarm water.
