This will help the scars to fade away as well as improve the texture of your skin. More so, it is great to reduce facial hair (over a period of time).

Lime Juice
Lemon juice is a great way to reduce blemishes on the face. Lemon being a natural bleaching agent, reduces the melanin buildup and fades scars. Squeeze a lemon and apply it on the scars, with the help of a cotton bud. Leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes. However, the drawback is that it results in dry skin and photosensitivity.
