Hi Prian, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Acne, also known as acne vulgaris, is a medical condition that occurs when the hair follicles on the skin become clogged with dead skin cells and oil. In general, acne occurs in areas with high oil content, such as the face, shoulders and back. Acne scars can occur as a result of damaged skin during the healing period of acne. One of the most common causes of damaged skin is the habit of squeezing pimples. Read more about how to get rid of acne scars in our article on Removing Acne Scars.
As for your question, actually until this answer is written, there are very few or even no journals and studies that discuss the use of honey to get rid of acne scars. Among the several sources that we found, stated the following:
In 2001, researchers from the University of Oxford found that patients with burns treated with honey healed faster, were protected from infection and required less antibiotics than those not treated with honey. However, no research has been done on acne scars. Honey has an antibacterial function, but not the bacteria that play a role in the formation of acne. The Journal of Antibacterial Chemotherapy states that honey is effective against Staphylococcus bacteria, but not P.acne bacteria, the bacteria that causes acne. Even if honey can get rid of acne, conventional acne medications are still more effective. There are many factors that cause acne to occur, including genetics, facial oil levels, and inflammation. The good effects of honey do not cover all of these.
Besides that, there are also several other things, such as honey that is used must be raw honey or have not gone through any processing and additions, in the sense that not just any type of honey can be used. Honey is also more useful for acne prevention than healing acne scars. Some alternative treatments like honey may work for some people but may not work for others. So with little supporting evidence, we don't recommend using honey as an acne scar remover. Our advice is that you continue to check the condition of your acne scars to a dermatologist and genital specialist or aesthetic clinic so that you get the treatment that suits your condition.
So, hopefully useful.
