i have black scars from popping pimples they cover my back neck face chest and arms. how do i remove the scars?

First and foremost, you should not pop your pimples so if you still suffer from the occasional pimple, make sure that you do not scratch it or try to squeeze it out. You have not mentioned how old the scars are. Fresh scars are the easiest to get rid of but older scars take considerable time and effort. You have mentioned that the scars are discolorations and these are easier to get rid of as compared to pitted scars. You will need to follow a regular skin care routine daily to treat these scars. Depending on the severity of the scars, it could take weeks or months of dedicated effort before you see any visible lightening.

Your face wash should suit your skin type and not leave your skin excessively dry. Pour a little face wash onto your palm and add a drop of sandalwood oil to it. Mix it well and use it to wash your face as usual. Do not pour the sandal wood oil directly into your face wash in a bid to save time and effort. Your face wash contains several chemical compounds designed to break down oils and so it will cause the sandalwood oil to dissolve and lose a lot of its therapeutic natural compounds. Sandalwood oil is reputed for its effectiveness in treating scarred tissue. You can also use a face scrub every alternate day. Grind a handful of rice until it is a fine powder. Add a spoonful of this rice flour to a small bowl and add a spoon of lemon juice and ½ a spoon of honey and ½ a spoon of Bengal gram flour. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly until you have a thick coarse paste. Wet your face and then use this paste to slowly exfoliate your face. Make sure that you are gentle as excess pressure will cause more damage than good. Rice flour is coarse and helps to get rid of the upper layer of dead skin cells. The lemon juice acts as a mild bleaching agent to lighten your scars and the honey and Bengal gram help to nourish your skin. Use this scrub on you neck, back and chest when you go in for your daily shower.

Once a week you can use a face and body pack. It is preferable that you do this in your bathroom just before you shower as it can get quite messy. Chop up a tomato, potato and carrot and place the diced vegetables in a blender. Blend until the mixture is completely pureed and then strain out the juice. In a clean bowl, mix a few spoons of fuller’s earth and this juice to make a thin - but not runny paste. Apply this paste to all the affected areas of your body and allow it to dry. Once it has dried completely, you can shower as usual. This face and body pack contains potato juice which is known for its bleaching properties and tomato juice which is acidic in nature and helps to get rid of the scarred tissue. It also contains carrot juice which is high in vitamin A which is essential for clear skin.
