Scars can be prominent and annoying. And boy, can they be difficult to get rid of! Instead of spending money on chemicals and ointments, which are also not good for us, here are some natural remedies to help scars disappear as well as reduce the look of scars.
Below are some natural remedies, as suggested by Natural Alternative Remedy:
Use Vitamin E in the form of daily supplements – internally, or you can apply a liquid form of Vitamin E capsule topically. Vitamin E lotion is also an option. Apply on the scar twice a day.
Lemons contain citric acid that aids in lightening scars. Before you apply lemon juice, clean the skin with a gentle cleanser, then soak a cotton ball into lemon juice, and apply to the scar location. After the area is dry, rinse thoroughly.
Aloe Vera is one of the popular options for reducing scars. Apply Aloe Vera gel onto the scar.
Massage a small amount (about a dime size) of extra virgin olive oil on your scar daily. Let it dry. Apply before going to bed, keeping it on overnight and rinse in the morning. This will help to lighten the scar.
Cocoa Butter is one of the best natural moisturizers, and it operates by smoothing and softening the area of the scar to allow the natural healing process to continue.
Mustard Seed Oil
An ointment made up of 10% mustard seed oil, that is put on a scar up to 3 times per day for several weeks, may assist in enhancing the look of that scar.
Use it many times a day on the affected scar.
Rose Hip Seed Oil
Mixing and applying 1oz of both rose hip seed oil and rose essential oils can help reduce the look of a scar. Store the mixture in a glass bottle in a dark place to maintain its potency.
Massage can help soften scars. By rolling and rubbing scars many times throughout the day you break down the scar tissue. This can help it appear more faded.
Before trying any natural remedy, be sure to consult with your physician regarding your specific needs.
