How to Hide Pimple Marks Naturally
How to hide pimple marks naturally is something that many people are asking now as we move towards a more earth conscious perspective in our buying habits.
We are buying less chemical items and looking for creams and treatments that are natural and organic.
And while we move towards a more eco-commerce sort of mind, our body is still producing acne (especially while cleansing) that is leaving scars and need to be hidden (well if we want them to anyway.
I personally don’t mind, but I do know a lot of friends that do. Some of the ones mentioned here have been tried and tested by them already with their approval.
Other’s have made it to their list.
Some of the best remedies around!
Lemon Juice – What can’t this magic fruit do? It cleans, it cleanses, and makes us squidge our faces up, it makes alcohol actually drinkable.
The acidity of the juice have a bleaching component in them that help lighten the discolouration of marks and scars.
It’s also jammed with vitamins that help your skin heal.
Just make sure that you wash it off before you go outside as it works just like tanning lotion and you could end up burnt.
Also make sure that you are using fresh lemon juice and not the bottled juice as the bottle juice usually has preservatives and added sugars in it.
Make sure that you wash it off once it has dried and moisturise as normal.
Aloe Vera – Aloe Vera is one of the most underrated soothing lotions available.
Readily available in plant form and easy to cultivate, all you really need Is a pot plant of the stuff and you’re set for life.
Bonus, it doesn’t just have to work on scars.
You can get commercially prepared mixtures or if you have your own plan just break off a leaf and cut it in half to get to the gel sap inside. Smear it directly on your skin to soak in.
Baking Soda Rub – If you’re in need of a natural scrub, that is readily available look no further than your baking shelf in the cupboard.
Just as versatile and probably more fun to experiment with than lemon, Baking soda is another multipurpose natural solution.
Simply mix it into a paste and apply to your face and allow it to dry.
It helps to remove dead or damaged skin, including those of scars, making way for the clearer younger skin.
Turmeric with Honey – Turmeric is pretty much the go to spice at the moment.
It aids digestion and promotes a heap of other health benefits. So why not use it for your face?
It has an anti-septic nature, which is why it’s very popular.
Just like Baking soda, make it into a paste, apply and let it dry before washing off with warm water.
Find products with anti-inflammatory properties.
Products with oatmeal, almond, cocoa butter are all good options and great at soothing redness and smoothing the skin.
You can also try and make your own as there are lots of YouTube tutorials on how to do it.
Remember though that prevention is always better than cure, so make sure you get your cleansing routine down pat.
You can consult a dermatologist for creams and topical treatments to help keep acne and your pimple marks down, but as this article is about natural methods so we’ve included recipes for some of our favourite scrubs, masks and moisturisers.
You can give these a go, or find some other ones that might work for you, but anyway you look at in the best way to hide pimple marks naturally is to prevent them from happening!
Make sure with the scrubs and masks that you cleanse your face with warm water and pat dry with a towel before continuing.
Also use warm water to rinse off, unless otherwise specified.
These can be used for any skin type, but you may find that they may work better on some days to others.
Also, please note that if you are allergic to any of these ingredients DO NOT try those recipes.
What we recommend for Masking
Avocado Magic Mask:
Not just good for eating, the avocado is quite a versatile fruit. It’s full of healthy fats and lots of vitamins and natural oils that the skin will readily absorb.
Honey acts as an anti-septic and soother and the yoghurt is a good combiner that moisturises and nourishes the skin, much like a milk bath does.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 tbsp of honey and or plain yogurt.
- Combine the ingredients together in a small bowl
- Apply liberally to your face.
- Leave for a few minutes before rinsing off with luke warm water and moisturising. Make sure you miss your eyes.
Happy Honey Bee Mask:
Back to the magic Lemon and Honey combination.
Both of these ingredients feature heavily in natural remedies thanks to their many great properties.
Just make sure that when you apply the honey mask that you stay well away from insects.
They may try and eat your mask!

It also helps to heal.

Cocoa Butter Delight
Cocoa butter is one of those foods that aren’t good for you to eat a lot of (it’s the basis of white chocolate) but look after your skin!
It adds nutrients back to the skin and forms a protective layer.
The egg acts as a combiner, but also is full of nutrients and healthy fats that protect you from the sun. (you should still use SPF though).
- 2 tbsp Cocoa Butter
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- Melt cocoa butter over low heat
- Add egg to butter gently forming a cream like mixture
