Be careful, though, not to leave the mixture on too long or use it too often because baking soda is an abrasive. The Honey Rub does not get rid of scars; however, it softens the skin and cleans the pores. First, wash your face with warm to hot water and then pat dry. Apply the honey to the needed areas and then wait for about 20 minutes. Then, wash your face with warm water. Pat your face dry and then gently dab an ice cube over the scar area. This will close the pores. This method will not take away the scars but will make your skin look smoother and the scars less noticeable.
Other ways to get rid of scars are: chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, Dermabrasion, Intense Pulsed Light, Punch Graft, Silicone-containing gels, creams and bandages, Cyrosurgery and Cortisone injections.
