Baking Soda To Get Rid Of Pockmarks
Some dermatologists advise using baking soda to help alleviate the undesirable appearance of pitted scars. Micro-dermabrasion very gently polishes away and sloughs off the dead skin on the surface of the epidermis and consequently helps diminish the presence of scars. For most microdermabrasion treatments, baking soda acts like the polishing agent which, gets rid of the dead skin cells, making the skin look smooth and clean.
Baking soda is way gentler on the skin than most polishing agents, given that, it is alkaline in nature and not acidic. Alkaline substances remove dead skin cells with least scrubbing and no damage to the skin. To exfoliate your skin with baking soda; you need to mix 1 spoon of baking soda with 2 spoons of water and scrub well. Wash off with cold water and then massage a little bit of avocado or jojoba oil to make your skin feel supple and elastic.
Natural Treatment For Pockmarks On Nose
Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera has amazing skin healing abilities. A host of scar reducing lotions and serums use it to soothe the inflamed and irritated skin and to decrease the presence of the marks and scars. Ideally use fresh Aloe Vera gel for your treatment. Pluck a leaf, clean it and slice it. Express out the juice and massage in to your skin gently. Do this 2 to 3 times daily. The skin becomes smooth and supple and it helps banish marks successfully.
Chemical peels are also advocated by most dermatologists and skin care experts; typically most chemical peels make use of salicylic acid, lactic acid, or trichloro-acetic acid to slough off the superficial layer of the skin. This treatment will redden your skin at first but on the other hand, a chemical peel greatly decreases the appearance of scars and marks in a few weeks.
You could also try a laser resurfacing treatment. Lasers sluice off the superficial layers of the skin, producing a little bit of preliminary irritation, but it improves the appearance of scars appreciably after the skin has healed.
