Most people prefer natural remedies for acne marks removal because they are inexpensive and do not have any adverse side effect on the skin. In fact, most of these ingredients can improve the overall skin condition. Since various skin types may have special needs with regards to treatment, consider using the following:

1. Mash a very ripe banana and apply to the skin. Leave on about two minutes and rinse off with warm water followed by cold.

2. We all know that sandalwood powder is highly beneficial for removal of any marks on skin surface. Make a paste of sandalwood powder and rose water and apply it over the acne scars at night before going to bed. Let the paste stay on the marks overnight and wash off in the morning. When it is done regularly, the marks will disappear really fast.

3. You can also get rid of acne by changing your diet and your lifestyle. Control your intake of fatty food because this can increase the oil in your skins surface. Get at least 7 hours of sleep every day. Drink at least eight glasses of water per day in order to leave your skin smooth and healthy.

4. Prepare a face mask with apple paste to which a few drops of honey has been added. Apply this paste all over the face and leave it untouched for 15-20 minutes. Then wash off with plain water. This face mask will tighten up the skin pores which make the marks on the skin less visible.

5. Oatmeal can also be used to sooth irritated, dry skin. Mix as above and allow to cool. Apply the mask cold to the skin and gently rinse off with warm water. Do not rub or scrub, simply rinse off.

6. For a very nourishing treatment, mix one egg yolk, one tsp of olive oil and one teaspoon of honey. Allow to stay on the skin for several minutes and then rinse off. Pat dry.

7. Vitamin B5 (Panthothenic Acid) reduces stress. Because stress is one of the major contributors to acne, Vitamin B5 can minimize breakouts.

8. Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) keeps your skin, nails and hair healthy. Acne is one of the main symptoms of a riboflavin deficiency.

9. Start curing your acne by reducing your stress levels and avoiding the use of too much makeup. Abnormal stress levels can decrease your body's ability to naturally fight off bacteria. Meanwhile, makeup and sunscreens can clog your pores and infect your skin further.
