How to: Reduce Scars

Hi guys!

Here’s a quick tip I’d like to share with you all and it’s about how to remove scars! I wouldn’t recommend this method if your skin is really dry as it’ll string quite a bit. The method I have tried is using lemon juice, since we have a lemon tree in the backyard. This way is extremely cheap yet effective, as I found.

What you’ll need:

– A lemon

– Small cup/bowl

– A cotton pad


It’s really simple.

1. All you need to do is squeeze the juice out of the lemon into the container you have chosen.

2. Dip a cotton pad in the lemon juice and apply to the scarred areas (make sure you washed your face prior & that it is completely dry before applying the lemon juice).

3. Leave this on for a minimum of 10 minutes. Wash off. Try to repeat this everyday or every second day to see results faster.

NOTE: Try not to expose your skin to light with the lemon juice on it as it will react and may leave a light patch on your skin. (I’d recommend doing it just before you sleep, this way you could even leave it over night).

How does it work?

The lemon acts as a natural bleach, therefore it helps fade out the scars. The alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) removes the dead skin cells, encourages growth of new ones and gives the skin more elasticity.

What methods do you guys use to remove scars? Also let me know if you try this one out & if it worked well for you!
