Best Ways To Get Rid Of A Scar
BY J.S. VON DACRE
You don't learn from successes; you don't learn from awards; you don't learn
from celebrity; you only learn from wounds and scars and mistakes and failures.
And that's the truth.~Jane Fonda
Scars can mark a trail of many untold stores. Some wear them with pride, but for many, they can become a fixation from which they are unable to escape.
There are, however, a few ways that scars can be improved without resorting to surgery or anything too intrusive. Here are Merola’s top natural remedies that would not only help to improve scars but also your skin’s overall appearance!
Vitamin E has been renown for its healing properties since your grandparents’ time! Simply apply the oil generously to the scar daily or use it as a regular moisturiser.
Rose Hip Oil
This lightweight oil, with a natural form of Vitamin A, is absorbed quickly into the skin. It is best to get the organic version for added health benefits. It can be used for scars and even wrinkles!
Raw Shea Butter
Rich with omega-3 fatty acids, it is known for skin repair and its moisturising properties. It not only helps with scars but also gives your skin a more youthful and smoother appearance.
Sugar scrub contains specific acids that help to remove dead skin and assist with skin regeneration. Combine cane sugar with virgin oil and apply the scrub to your skin while showering, twice a week. Do not, however, use this until your skin is properly healed.
Silicone Gel Strips
These are clear sheets that cover the scars, used somewhat like a plaster, which speed up the healing process of the scars. It would be advised to do an allergy patch test before using this method. This is especially great for keloid (raised) scars.
"Your scars and bruises are the most beautiful, for they tell me the stories of your greatest adventures." ~J.S. von Dacre
