home remedies for small acne scars and facial firming?

Hi all,
I am new here. I am going to try the egg yolk. Any home remedies or cheaper remedies (that work) for scars and helping the skin to look firm and younger. I am 37 and want to help get a more youthful look. I've heard Vit E, and Jojoba mixed, plus vitamin c Serum. Am I on the right track and where do I get this stuff that's inexpensive and yet pure...thanks a lot...you guys are great!!!

Re: home remedies for small acne scars and facial firming?

For looking younger and firmer, I don't think you can beat a good moisturizer - I think moisturizing is the key. My skin was sooo tired looking because of overwashing it and using harsh products on it. I was scared of moisturizing in case I broke out. But I have since gone easy on it and I use OLay complete which moisturizes me well and does not break me out. Also, I use Olay wash for sensitive skin which is mild and contains moisturizers. So: moisturize, moisturize, and moisturize.

Another tip is about water. Warm to hot water is the worst thing (in my experience) that you can do to your skin as far as aging it. Use water that is tepid - just warm enough so that it is not uncomfortably cold i.e. slightly warmer than very cold; and then rinse with cold. If you normally use warm water on your face, you'll see a big difference within a day or two.

Re: home remedies for small acne scars and facial firming?

Wow, I've been using the egg yolk mask for 3 days and tried the lemon, and my face looked so good today. I also use Neutrogena spf 30 tinted daily moisturizer, then Almay compact makeup and I felt prettier today than I have in a long time. I am 37 years old and have barely any wrinkles....but I NEVER EVER go in the sun...that's the biggest beauty secret so far I think. Thanks for the egg yolk and lemon advice...working great!!!

Wenron- Please make sure that if you are putting lemon on your face you are using sunscreen. Lemon causes bleaching of the skin and hair and is photo sensitive.
