How To Use Olive Oil To Get Rid Of Acne Scars…

Here are 4 most common and conventional ways to make use of olive oil in treating acne scars:

1. Massaging:

Take one tablespoon of olive oil and massage it gently over your skin, especially the troubled spots, by moving your fingertips in small circles. Make sure that you use deep pressure and keep massaging for 4 to 5 minutes. Once the skin pores get saturated, wipe the excess oil away from your face by using a clean and warm washcloth. Repeat for a couple of times and finally, let the oil sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Doing it at least twice every day before bedtime can help you make the dead tissues softer and get rid of stubborn acne scars easily.
2. Steaming:

Getting facial steam right after an olive oil massage is highly effective in fading away acne scars. Take a large pot filled with steaming water. Bend over it in such a manner that your face remains at a distance of around 18 inches from the water. If you lean more than this, you might end up scalding your skin. So, be careful. Now, take a large towel and cover your head with it so that the steam can reach your facial skin properly. Stay in this position for 8 to 10 minutes. Then, remove the towel and wipe your face and neck. It will make the scar tissues loose enough to get removed easily.
3. Exfoliating:

Now, it is time to exfoliate your skin with a scrub. For this, mix one tablespoon of baking soda with one tablespoon of olive oil and blend well. Apply it onto your skin, especially over the acne scars, and rub gently with your fingertips, using circular motion. Do this for 3 to 4 minutes and after that, wipe away the mixture from your face with a wet wash cloth. This process will speed up the removal of the soft and loose acne scar tissues.
4. Maintenance:

It is of utmost importance that you maintain an acne-free skin after getting rid of the scars. The layer present beneath the surface layer of the skin becomes visible to some extent during this time. In order to protect this from further infection, prepare a concoction by combining 3 drops of tea tree oil with 5 drops of olive oil. Apply it all over your face with the help of a cotton ball.
