Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us.
Acne scar treatment depends upon the grading and depth of scar.
Superficial scars can be treated by application of creams (like tretinoin, Glycolic acid), chemical peels and microdermabrasion
Deep scars require dermaroller sessions, lasers etc.

Pores are basically dilated openings of oil glands and these respond well to peels or lasers.
Application of lemon juice or multani mitti would not help much.

I would advise that you upload an image of the concerned area, so that I can assist you in a better way.
Hoping to hear from you soon.

Hi XXXXXXX
I have gone through the images attached. The scars are too deep to respond to creams alone. At least you need dermaroller sessions to reduce scars. These are quie cheap in comparison to lasers. The sessions are to be taken at monthly interval and usually four to six sessions are required. These would reduce pores too.
I would advise that you consult a dermatologist nearby to avail these sessions.
In the meanwhile you may follow these
Use a Glycolic acid based face wash like melawash
Uses good sunscreen in morning hours
Apply retino a cream at night over face in small quantities
Take vitamin c supplement orally.

These would not help with scars much but would improve the appearance and texture of skin to some extent

Hope that helps. Should there be more query, feel free to write back.
Take care

Hi,
Thanks for writing back.

Application of honey and tomato would not help much with open pores.
Use of a Glycolic acid based face wash like melawash would reduce oil from face and will help temporarily in pore reduction. Retino a cream too would improve your skin to a certain extent.
Having said this I would still assert that dermaroller would be a good treatment option for you.
Regards.
