  • how to treat acne or sugical scars?

    i am currently using a sandalwood powder paste at night, which is very good..
    but i need help with the indented type of scars.

    Hi niteswimmer,

    You are right about using sandalwood paste for acne. You can use it with rosewater if you are not allergic to it. Some doctors say that as far as you lead a healthy lifestyle, you just need to avoid touching acne prone skin. This would prevent them from recurring and spreading. A cleansing diet with fruit juices like Sweet lime also help.

    Scars are permanent. We can only try to make them fade. They may not go away fully if they are old. Lemon juice mixed with rose water (pure lemon juice is very strong) is a good home remedy for blemishes and scars.

    Kumkumadi taila is a traditional beauty oil which can clear off marks and spots. You can read more at There is this organic version also at

    However, this oil needs to be used for a few months before you see results. Some practitioners advise on staying away from any other cosmetic product while using it.

    Hope this helps
