How To Get Rid Of Acne Scars Using Carrot Juice

Kylah Benes-Trapp

Throughout most of my life, I've had a serious love-hate relationship with my skin.  I struggled with acne as a teen and always thought that my persistent pimple problems would eventually become a thing of the past once I reached adulthood.

But at the ripe age of 24, it seems that my skin is still bombarded with super inconvenient breakouts on the reg. And if dealing with acne as an adult isn't bad enough, I also happen to have a major face-picking problem.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm fully aware that you're not supposed to pop your pimples. But for some reason, I literally have zero self-control when it comes to keeping my damn fingers off my face.

So I tend to make my skin woes a million times worse by picking at all of the pimples on my face and leaving the occasional acne scar behind in the process.

If you're familiar with my face-picking problems and also happen to have a few battle wounds left over from annihilating your own blemishes, you might want to pay attention. We've just found an awesome beauty hack that will help you get rid of those acne scars once and for all.

Apparently, carrot juice is the secret weapon you never knew you could use in the war against acne scars. That's right. It turns out that carrot juice is packed full of beta-carotene, which is known to help your body heal scars.

If you're down to try this skin remedy, let me fill you in on some of the deets.

All you have to do is apply a daily dose of carrot juice to your skin for at least 12 weeks and you should start to see those pesky scars begin to disappear into oblivion.

When possible, it's best to use freshly juiced carrots as they seem to have the highest amount of beta-carotene, but if you don't happen to have a juicer on hand, you can also find carrot juice at most grocery stores.

Check out the steps below for a closer look at the whole process.

First, gather up your supplies. You'll need sea salt, cotton pads, a small bowl and carrot juice, which you can buy at the store or make yourself by throwing three carrots in a juicer.

Stir the mixture until it forms a paste.

Apply it to your face using circular motions to massage the paste into your acne scars. Leave the paste on your face until it dries, then wash it off with cool water. This helps to exfoliate the skin and encourages the growth of new skin cells.

After that's done, you'll need to fill another bowl with a small amount of carrot juice.

Dip a cotton ball into the juice, dab this orange elixir onto your acne scars and you're all done. Repeat this process once a day for at least 12 weeks and you'll be on your way to better skin in no time.
