Scars are something that almost everyone has. Many times we’re clumsy and fall down, we have ugly acne that leaves scars behind or even get scars from surgery. Whatever the reason may be, it’s not pretty and if we had a magic wand, we would take it all back. Nowadays there are expensive treatments to get rid of scars, but that would mean shelling out thousands of dollars for plastic surgery or laser removal of scars, which insurance does not cover.
If you’re lucky you’re able to cover your scars with clothing, but when a scar is located out in the open, it’s harder to hide. Depending on the type of scar you might have, there are things that you can use to minimize the look of your scar.
Shea or Cocoa Butter
There are many lotions that include these ingredients, but most of the time they are mixed with other chemicals. It’s best if you find these products in their purest forms. They are often used in lotions as a skin softener and they will work their magic on scars.
Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the swelling and redness of a scar. It’s able to penetrate deeply and repair damaged cells, as well as increase the amount of collagen produced.
