Scars! Most of us dread wearing them. But our skin can get scars from cuts, wounds and of course the most dreadful of them all, acne. But we should not hate scars as they are a part in the skin’s natural healing process.
Most of the scars we get would fade as time passes by. If you have scars that take a long time to fade, it just means that the trauma or damage your skin sustained was deep. Most of us are not too happy to see scars especially acne scars and we go through lengths to get rid of them. It is important to understand that no home remedy will magically vanish your scars. But there are ways to make your hard-headed scars fade. There are topical ointments and skin products that have been formulated to help hasten the natural healing process of the skin. How you care for your skin can also help in hastening this process.
How to Make Your Scars Fade Faster
Here are ways on how you can get your scars fade at a faster rate!
When you get out of bed in the morning you should see to it that you give your skin a good loving. Wash the skin using a mild cleanser. Don’t rub your skin dry! Be gentle and pat dry instead with a clean towel. You’ll need a scar cream to apply over the scar. It is best to get one with onion extract. Wondering why? This is simply because onions naturally have anti-bacterial as well as anti-inflammatory properties which would help minimise or prevent redness as well as itchiness. Let the cream soak in the skin.
Another great product to use for scars is the Moroccan Argan oil. This oil also contains numerous nutrients having anti-bacteriala and anti-inflammatory properties. Argan oil has Squalene which is a natural anti-bacterial and Polyphenols which is an antiseptic. Its nutrients having anti-inflammatory properties are numerous. Vitamin E, Prostaglandins, Triterpens, Sterols as well as Polyphenols all have anti-inflammatory properties and these nutrients are all found in this Moroccan oil.
Sun protection is a must and if you want to make your scars fade faster you should follow this rule. Exposure to sunlight can make the scars appear darker and when they become darker they become prominent. If you don’t want to waste your time and effort in making them fade see to it that you lather on sunscreen lotion with an SPF of 30 or higher on your scars. It is also advisable that you use the broad-spectrum sunscreen lotion. Make this a daily habit and reapply after sweating profusely, swimming or spending much time outdoors. You can also offer an extra sun protection by covering your scars with clothing.
Do not forget to clean your skin before you hit the sack. Just like your morning routine, pat dry your skin with a clean towel. Apply the Moroccan oil not just on your scars but also all over the skin.
